This mini-series is being aggressively promoted by HBO, and features the somewhat-controversial actress/comedienne Amy Schumer as a journalist on an investigative assignment in her self-abandoned small home town. The Schumer character is quite "flawed," which is why the part was an attractive one for her. She is a near-suicidal alcoholic, product of a cloyingly-evil mother who, while putting up a pretense of welcoming her "home," in fact resents her very existence, and does everything she can to make the journalistic assignment difficult. In their quest to be "clever" or possibly "deep," the writers have made the story all but inscrutable, introducing new characters in unknown, and previously unexplained environments, changing time perspectives, and casting several female characters who all look alike, making it nearly impossible to discern who is who from scene to scene. For example, episode 3 introduces "Camille" (Schumer's character) in what appears to be a dormitory or hospital, or even asylum setting, with no explanation of when this occurs, what the institution actually is, why she is there, or what it has to do with the story. It is only by reading the HBO notes on the episode that one learns that it is a drug rehab facility, into which Camille has voluntarily committed herself, and her roommate (who looks like her sister) is also a suicidal druggie. At bottom, the story is a who-done-it? with Camille and the police trying to figure out who has killed and mutilated a couple local teen girls (possibly more as the story proceeds). It is a pretty good story, but the writers deserve to be punished for the flawed and confusing presentation. Seriously, you can't figure it out without researching each episode after you've watched it. But with so much mindless, intolerable crap on the tube these days (Bachelorette? America's Got [no] Talent?), what else can you watch?
