The Sinner is brilliant in its simplicity -- which other crime dramas should learn from
Source: The Washington Post
Season 2 of the USA psychological crime anthology series, which now stars Carrie Coon, "deserves more than a passing glance, if for no other reason than to admire its balance," says Hank Stuever. "The core mystery is complicated but not overly so; the ambiguities are presented in terms of human flaws rather than philosophy tracts; the gore is politely measured out in necessary doses; the twists are plausible enough to pass muster; and, above all else, The Sinner’s pace and writing lure you in and resist the urge to drift, promising a conclusive wrap-up. Characters tend to say only what is needed, rarely more. These qualities, which seem easy enough, are in fact difficult for many crime series to achieve."
- The Sinner's addictive properties make it highly conducive to binge-watching, even though it's a weekly series
- It’s the summer-TV equivalent of an artfully constructed novel that's also a dishy beach read
- The Sinner works in Season 2 if you've never watched Season 1
- Showrunner Derek Simonds on creating a new mystery after moving past Petra Hammesfahr’s novel

Meghan Markle's spirit haunted Suits' Season 8 premiere
The USA series returned Wednesday without stars Patrick J. Adams as Mike and Markle as Rachel. Yet it was Markle's absence that was felt the most. As Devon Ivie explains, "while it’s hard to argue against the assertion that Mike’s departure has a greater impact within the goings-on at the newly rebranded Zane Specter Litt, the emotional weight of the series was held up by Rachel, who shared a close, sisterly friendship with the firm’s HBIC, Donna (Sarah Rafferty)."
