The first episode sets everything up wonderfully. A law professor/defense attorney picks several of her first year students to be her interns every year. After she picks them this year it flash forwards to several months later and we see those interns dragging a body into the woods and set it on fire.
The premise of the nine episodes so far is "how did things get from Point A. to Point B?"
Along the way we get to know these charcters very well. None of them are heroes they are all very fucked up and you could imagine any of the cast members being a murderer. And, every episode gives you a few more clues - by showing you more of the before and after.
When you get to Episode 9 all the clues fit together in a very logical way but also manage to give you a good cliff hanger.
To keep you sucked in when they are not throwing clues out there the show also has a secondary story - with the defense attorney and her interns trying to defend a young woman who seems at first like she's probably very guilty of a nasty murder, but probably isn't.
All in all it's great fun - and very, very sexy.
