Initially a critically lauded Netflix drama from the creators of Damages (2007-2012) that also used flashbacks as clues to something sinister that had happened in the past; here, they were haunting a prominent Florida Keys family, the Rayburns. Everything came to a head when the oldest son and the family’s black sheep, Danny (Ben Mendelsohn), came home after being away for a long time. The show’s attractive locations brought tourists to the Keys, but there were always dark clouds hanging over each character. At first, we were fascinated by the Rayburns, but the third season became dreary and lost its way. Great cast though, especially Mendelsohn as the sleazy Danny.
