    For drama fans (and crime drama fans in particular), The Sinner remains a very underrated anthology that always delivers a solid case with a great cast around it. It’s a good binge watch, but a worthy weekly exploration as well.

    These new episodes show how both the construction of the character and Pullman’s performance are a foundation worth building on again and again.

    The Sinner quickly pulls you in with a riveting first episode and gets its hooks in you. The haunting ambience of the show seeps in slowly and runs deep. This season is graced with three strong leads in Pullman, Bomer and Messina and the chemistry between Bomer and Messina is obvious from their first scene together

    In its third season, The Sinner remains a calculating and tortured human drama, baked into a detective narrative, that probes our deepest fear.

    “The Sinner” continues to intrigue and keep us guessing. Much of the success of this season’s story has to do with some smart casting. ... [Bill Pullman is] the engaging center of this entertaining puzzle.

    To the clowns who give a negative score but don't leave a comment on the reason why are a pain in the ass.
