Neither Dan nor I wound up writing a review of ABC's “Secrets and Lies.” We did discuss it on this week's second podcast, though, and weren't impressed either by Juliette Lewis' unintentionally comical performance as the cop, or by the gimmick of telling the show from Ryan Phillippe's point of view, even though we won't find out whether he's actually the killer until the end of the series. (Maybe it played better in the Australian original, but here it feels like the kind of surprise-over-substance choice that plagues too many serialized mystery/suspense shows.)

For those of you who watched tonight's two-hour premiere, what did you think? Are you intrigued by the mystery? Are you imagining Kate McKinnon's Juliette Lewis impression? And will you watch again?

Have at it.
