Guest Stars Worth Mentioning


When their brother Danny, the black sheep of the family, returns for the 45th anniversary of the family’s tropical resort, the other grown-up siblings have to face their past. Set in the Florida Keys, Bloodline reveals the dark sins and secrets of the Rayburns, the supposed model family of their community.

Yay or nay?

If you are not looking for an action-packed hour of excitement, but are rather a fan of more subtle suspense, this one is for you. In one hour installments this show focuses on the psychological games the Rayburns play to fool themselves and others. Each member of the family gets the time to develop their characters as the plot graduately unfolds and the full extent of the drama becomes apparent. The show is particularly good at blurring the lines between upstanding citizen with the moral high-ground and low-life criminal at the outskirts of society. As this is a Netflix show, it is released as a season and you get to devour all episodes at any time of your liking. However, the slowly developing plot, length and psychological tension don’t make for the best binge-watching experience (in my opinion).
