    Creepy is exactly the word I used. I almost had to turn away, it was that unsettling. Well acted; very little exposition. I recommend it highly.

    No fictional conceit can possibly match the darkness of the Manson family. But Durham County, a series about a cop's growing realization that his bland suburban neighborhood may house a serial killer, is genuinely creepy.
  2. Viewers willing to put in the work tonight could be rewarded with a complex, nicely turned drama. Those less interested can wait a week, when the 10 p.m. options will expand to include Jay Leno telling jokes. No scorecard needed there.
  3. Atmospheric and strange (images of power lines abound for no discernible reason), Durham County is not much of a murder mystery--viewers know who the killer(s) are by the end of the first episode--but it is an intriguing crime drama that's more character-driven than it is procedural.
