Overview

Fool Me Once moves more quickly than a lot of other series with comparable plots. Here, the major focus is still on Michelle Keegan’s character Maya Stern, who experiences the sudden deaths of her sister Claire (Natalie Anderson) and husband Joe (Richard Armitage).

Fool Me Once Season 1 Story:

The series, which is based on the same-titled novel by author Harlan Coben, centers on the lives of a widowed military officer who is trying to deal with her family’s tragic murders.

Review:

This is another Coben best-seller that Netflix has developed into a protracted series. Even if the book is a page-turner, the plot loses a lot of its suspense and excitement when it is turned into a television program since the reveal must be given after an incredibly lengthy wait. Furthermore, there was suspense throughout, some of which—if not all of it—you would have predicted just on the first or second episode alone.

Nevertheless, “Fool Me Once” moves more quickly than a lot of other programs with comparable plots. Here, the major focus is still on Michelle Keegan’s character Maya Stern, who experiences the sudden deaths of her sister Claire (Natalie Anderson) and husband Joe (Richard Armitage). As a result, she finds herself juggling unfriendly relationships with people like her wealthy mother-in-law Judith Burkett (Joanna Lumley), the bitter husband of her sister, and the untrusting investigator Sami Kierce (Adeel Akhtar).

It is a whodunit, and an easy one at that. This is advantageous, but it also creates a big gap in the story—despite exciting discoveries in each episode and a quick pacing—because it doesn’t actually go ahead. You can practically skip to the last episode for the major reveal after watching the first two, and you’ll still get satisfying answers to nearly all of the unanswered questions. Although the oversimplification is acceptable, it begs the question of whether such black-and-white murder mysteries are worthy of being dragged out across more than six episodes, each lasting over an hour. Additionally, there are pointless songs and side stories, such as the required one about the detective’s personal issues, to support this runtime.

Michelle Keegan has a sophisticated appearance and fits the description of her part perfectly. As the stereotypical wealthy grandmother of a family fortune who isn’t entirely fond of her radically different daughter-in-law, Joanna Lumley is ideal. The cast as a whole does well.

All things considered, this gripping murder mystery has all the makings of a great thriller film, providing its viewers with a satisfying resolution to its double murder mystery.
