Description

Our family members are not always who we think. When Eleonore and Michael Richland lose their parents unexpectedly in a small plane crash, they must choose between honoring their father’s legacy as a world-renowned cardiologist and health care magnate — or risk it all to tell the truth. In the second season, they must grapple with the consequences of their decisions, as well as stumble upon disturbing new revelations about the family business. From Wondery, the makers of “Dirty John” and “Dr. Death,” Blood Ties stars Gillian Jacobs (Community, Love), Josh Gad (Frozen, Avenue 5), Amy Landecker (Transparent), Dominic Monaghan (Lost), and Wayne Knight. New episodes of the second season release every Wednesday.

Hi, so I'm at S01E05. I'll start by saying I like it. no big surprises so far. I can't help but feel that there are a few plot holes developing. Still enjoyable non the less.

Rape as a story point for a crime show? really? Haven't you learned anything from the last few years? Rape is not a story plot for entertainment. Find new material. Do something creative and unique. 3 episodes in and there's absolutely nothing new or creative here - prestigious white guy dies mysteriously with horrible secrets? That's just the daily news. SO many subpar stories, shoes and podcasts, as if no one is really even trying anymore. Huge miss.

Predictable ending from the first episode. Acting was great. Story was so see through there was just no mystery to it. I listened just to know that I was right with the hope of an unexpected twist. There was none. I expected a better story depth effort.

Wow, July! It was good but not so good that people are going to wait that long. Don't be surprised if you have a huge fall off... if not because people's memory fails them, they don't remember what it was called, or just out of spite. Not sure if it was about needing cash or some sort of marketing strategy, but I'm questioning it and curious to know the ultimate retention rate.
