TV Series Review

Who is Erin Carter?

She’s a substitute teacher in Barcelona, Spain. She’s responsible for teaching students, including her daughter, Harper, who she’s recently had to reprimand for beating up a child when he insulted Harper‘s sensitive eyes.

Who is Erin Carter?

She’s a killer. When a couple of armed, masked robbers held up a grocery store, she killed one of them. And yeah, it was a struggle, but the way she dispatched him—and her lack of emotion following the incident—makes her seem a bit ruthless.

Who is Erin Carter?

She’s a liar. When the police begin to look into the robbery, some officers are suspicious of Erin’s story. Some elements just don’t seem to add up. After all, just before the masked robber died, he said he knew Erin…and he called her “Kate.”

Who is Erin Carter?

Well, we don’t exactly know. But we do know that there’s more to her than she wants people to see.

How is Erin Carter?

As it turns out, Erin Carter’s past is about to catch up with her. And the people who know about that past aren’t above putting a bullet in her head.

Indeed, we’ll see that happen to a few characters throughout the series. People are frequently beaten, stabbed, shot or otherwise bloodied—and some of these fight scenes can be quite violent and intense.

There’s a little bit of sensuality that’s mostly contained to the first episode, such as when Erin films her neighbor having an affair to use as leverage. Viewers will likewise need to think about the heavy swearing present in the show; even young children use the f-word.

Is there mystery in the series? Sure there is. Is it a bit predictable and contrived? Yep.

And is Erin’s daughter, Harper, going to have some psychological issues to work through because of her mother’s secrets? You betcha.

Episode Reviews

Aug. 24, 2023 – S1, Ep1: “Episode #1.1”

After Erin kills a man who robbed a store at gunpoint, her life—and her secrets—begin to unravel.

Masked robbers hold up the store and beat a manager to the ground. Erin fights one of them, smashing a jar in his face. He chokes her and punches her, and Erin stabs him with a cake tester before shooting him in the stomach. Later, the other masked attacker pursues Erin with a knife, and the two women fistfight. Erin hits the woman in the head with a mug, and the woman smashes Erin’s head into a chalkboard. Erin breaks the woman’s hand, stabs her in the neck with some pencils and snaps her neck.

Harper punches a boy in the face, giving him a bloody nose. When Harper’s forced to apologize, she threatens the boy again by telling him that if he doesn’t shake her hand, she’s going to stab his eyes out. Harper has a drawing of a half-deer, half-man stabbed with knives in her journal.

Erin is briefly seen in a bra and underwear. A woman has an affair with her tennis instructor. Their clothes cover up any critical bits, but we hear moaning and see their movements. Erin and her husband, Jordi, kiss, and she straddles him as they move to have sex. He kisses her neck. A woman wears a dress that reveals cleavage. Erin showers to remove dried blood, though nothing is seen.

People drink alcohol. A woman admits to being high.

The f-word is used 18 times, and the s-word is used three times. We also hear one use of “d-ck” and “h—.” Jesus’ name is used in vain twice.
