I find character series are getting more honest, or dishonest if you like, but with a mind to engage with gritty plots honestly rather than simplistically. It is like this to watch Ozark which repays handsomely for the engagement but I wonder in Ep8 series 1 why the contacts go back beyond the ages of the children twice (ie Charlotte is too young in the scenes for what she recollects with importance until now in the main timeline), which seems to pad too much.
If it pads out too much then the main plot is revealed as weaker by design, by lack of confidence. It really is a tough plot, but now I am padded out, spaced out, perhaps the writer found it was going too fast as undoubtably most things good do, but then that is their fate. How can the kids be so young before they move, so much was missed for this storyline that is overplays the past which has already been written differently with good characters as in fact weak with unexplained characters. Odd, just an idea for the scriptwriters really not that I can compete with such depth, just interest really.
