Sexy, smart and a little bit dark. This show is excellent - great cast and very well written.
Most definitely a strong lead character, Letty, played brilliantly by Michelle Dockery, who you strangely root for despite the fact that she likes to smoke a bowl or two, is an absentee parent and a freshly out of jail grifter.
Unlucky for her (but not for viewers) that she ran into Javier, played by the excellent Juan Diego Botto, who's the sort of man who would get any girl into serious trouble (yikes!). I've always liked a good baddie, especially when he may not actually be as bad a person as we first think.
I've binged the first three episodes. Can't wait for the rest of the season.
This review is based on the 2 hour premiere of "Good Behavior" which aired 11/15/16
After reading the synopsis for the show, Good Behavior sounds potentially interesting, but not terribly original. The former is true, but the latter is not. It is interesting, and original.
The show has a clear setup going for it which I think will work well for a procedural, and it's got a unique approach which we really haven't seen on TV since Dexter. The protagonists are anti-heroes. An ex con, conwoman, and a hired killer. After they become entangled, he continues to do his job, as she aids him. Together, they infiltrate, manipulate, grift, and ultimately kill. It's a well-paced high-stakes dangerous game if of life, death, and carnal desire.
Both characters are a lot more than what they do for a living, and although they are by no means good people, they are not without their morals. It's similar to Dexter in that respect, although the feel of the show is nothing like Dexter. It actually feels more like Leverage... the process they go through to isolate the victims feels similar to the plans they hatched on Leverage. Only, rather than helping people, they are killing them :)
Give it a shot!
A solid 4 star pilot.
