Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/07/24 Full Review Barry H Absolutely marvelous from Carrie Preston's performance to the scripts, locations and filming. It's a murder mystery with a wry sense of humor. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/06/24 Full Review Celso Alexandre R This show is awesome!!! Carrie Preston is the best. Watchting her on The Good Wife and The Good Fight I was always thinking why didn't she had her own show. Also the way Robert and Michelle King managed to put Elsbeth in a crime solving environment like Monk (TV Show) is fantastic!
