We knocked out season 1 of CB Strike this weekend. (In the USA, it's on Amazon Prime with a 7-day free trial of Cinemax, which is more than enough time.) It was 3 crimes over 7 episodes. The first 2 mysteries were written as a sort of the classic damaged loner detective (humanized by plucky sidekick) characters meet Agatha Christie-style pacing (i.e., lots of misdirection that is wrapped up quickly by a confrontation with the accused). But the last one was grittier and more personal. Not sure how I feel about that twist. I was enjoying the easy entertainment of the first two. They were a nice break from the constant drip of personal vendetta/prey stories that are intense but also exhaust a lot of ground too quickly. All in all, it was an enjoyable way to wind down and be entertained by one of my favorite genres.
