Show To Watch | The Sinner

The Sinner on USA Network

Are you looking for a summer thriller that will keep you on your toes with excitement?  Check out The Sinner, premiering August 2nd on USA Network!

I never expected to find my next TV show obsession on the back of a magazine, but there it was.

When I saw an advertisement for The Sinner, I was intrigued.  I Googled the show, read the previews & fell in love. 

From what I gather, the show revolves around Cora (played by Jessica Biel), a seemingly regular wife & mom who ends up committing a murder at a beach outing with her family.  The thing is, she has no idea why she did it.  The man she murders appears to be a stranger just enjoying his day on the beach.

The 8 part series then digs deep into the “why” of the murder, with detective Harry Ambrose (played Bill Pullman) trying to find answers to this seemingly random act of violence.

I love that this is an 8 part series that is supposed to reveal everything by the end.  It’s the best of both worlds for me:  it’s longer than a movie, yet not quite an entire series.  By the time I could become bored with it, the show will be over.

I did hear that the show is fairly graphic, so if that’s not your thing, you might want to skip out on it.  I’m not much of a fan of blood & gore, but if it contributes to the story, I’ll power through it.

I’m looking forward to this summer thriller!

The Sinner premieres Wednesday, August 2  at 10pm on USA Network.
