Rabbit Hole Ep 1-2 are thrilling, mind-bending and at times confusing. Nothing is as it seems, appears to be the order of the day, with Sutherland’s Weir holding up well as the narrative driver. The premise is straightforward in the sense that Weir needs to prove his innocence as an outlier, while both the police and his enemy stand in the way. In many ways, this is the premise of the classic TV series, The Fugitive.
Rabbit Hole Ep 1-2 sets up the key players in this game of chess. Weir is joined by Hailey Winton, a one-night-stand that may or may not turn out to be more than that, FBI agent Madi working outside the agency to discover the truth of the situation and the wild card Dr. Ben Wilson, Weir’s supposedly deceased father. As we said, numerous twists and turns to keep the viewer off-balance.
In the final analysis, Rabbit Hole looks like an intriguing series to follow. Hopefully, some answers are also provided along the way. Recommended.
