Why to Read: Tapping into the zeitgeist of 2017 America in a way that very few works of art can, this pilot addresses the topical and political subjects of the opioid epidemic, the decline of mining communities, the struggles of the white working class, and the fight over government regulation. Clear and evocative writing paints a vivid picture of this small community and the three-dimensional characters that live within it. The family dynamics feel real and emotionally charged, the moral complexity of the plot provides tons of drama, and the explosion is the perfect catalyst for the series, changing everything and forcing disparate characters together. Look no further for the next great family drama series.
