Episode 1 of Gracepoint had been sitting on my hard drive for a while. It didn’t look enticing — but then again I think that about every series that eventually has me nervously twitching from the edge of my couch or falling in love with the leading man (hello Matthew Crawley!) The other day, Stephen King tweeted something about Gracepoint. I’m thinking, if it’s good enough for King then it’s good enough for me. So I gave the show a whirl last night. Hard to watch if you have a young son, which I do, but I’m set to keep watching it. Can’t say I like the character portrayal of the new detective in town; feel like he’s a bit over the top in some scenes. Overall, great first impression, even if it made me check on my boy twice before I retired for the night.
