Dark, creepy, and though it's no Mindhunter...it's still captivating.

Just catching up here and there, but curious to see how it ends (or at least lands).

If there's something remarkable about the series, however, it's that Bulgaria substitutes for Boston, so lots of little things may catch your eyefrom cell phones to vehicles to fashion to faces. How they recreate so much (yet periodically miss the little things) is quite fascinating. Have fun with it; maybe even make it a game! Many objects, for example, feel like approximations or facsimiles versus the real McCoy...and I've yet to see an iPhone.

Oh well, The X-Files overcame similar challenges weekly, with Vancouver substituting for, well, literally every American city through which Mulder and Scully journeyed. In the words of Jon LovitzMaster Thespian—that's why they call it "Acting!" Just suspend your disbelief and you'll be fine.
