While laid up with this cold/fever, I have been watching Netflix’s new Bloodline series. It is not terrible, but it is not particularly great, either.
The performances are quite good, but I find the foreshadowing to be rather heavy-handed. The writing is kind of weird, with characters making non-sensical turns that seem to serve no purpose aside from twisting or furthering the plot.
Mostly, it seems like the story of what would happen to the Braverman family from Parenthood if they didn’t have a musical montage where they all come together and bond at the end of every episode.By Pete Brown
