Quotes

Debbie: Durkheim says all forms of deviancy are simply a challenge to the normalised repressiveness of the State.
Holden Ford: So he's an anarchist.
Debbie: No. He was the first person to suggest that if there's something wrong with our society, then criminality is a response to that.
Holden Ford: Well, maybe one of the things wrong with our society, is all the criminality.

The best criminal investigation show ever. And I've watched them ALL. The story goes atca perfect pace. They explain the history of psychological investigations without making the audience feel stupid. And you learn a lot. Jonathan Groff- I'm a little in love. After his turn as the original King George in Hamilton- he's changes direction 180° to play Holden. Still uptight but so ready to learn. Just watch. It's fantastic. But my only problem which is why I gave it a 9 is the girlfriend. Hannah Gross plays Debbie. Wow. I'm not one to try to be a jerk but boy oh boy. Bad acting at its worst. Their scenes together are gut wrenching nails on a chalkboard boring w absolutely no chemistry at all. She sounds like she walked onto a high school play's set for the very first time. Her voice never changes tone. Like a robot. UGGGGHHHHH HORRENDOUS. Pretty happy to see she's not in the second season.
