Gypsy 

Review of "Blod Drive" 7/7/17 by Suzanne
Airs Mondays 10/9c on ABC

This is kind of an odd show. Naomi Watts plays a psychologist, Jean, who gets too wrapped up in the lives of her patients.  She starts stalking this girl who works in a coffee house because her ex-boyfriend is one of her patients.  She also flirts with the girl (who's also a singer in a rock band) and gets involved with her. Jean is married with two children, so it's a very risky business that she's involved with.

The show is described as a psychological thriller, but it's not very thrilling. It's more creepy than anything else. I guess you're supposed to get some kind of vicarious thrill from the risks she's taking, and this different world she's entering.  Eventually, her bad choices start hurting her and her family. What a shock!

This show reminds me of the show "Chance" on HULU, which I don't particularly care for, but it's way better than this one.  I find it hard to empathize with Jean or what she's doing, or who she's hurting with her little suburban thrill seeking.  The show is very slow and doesn't seem to have a lot of action. I don't plan to keep watching.

MORE INFORMATION:

Academy Award-nominee Naomi Watts stars in this Netflix-original psychological thriller as Jean, a therapist in New York with a successful practice and a life that seems picturesque. As Jean starts to develop intimate and illicit relationships with the people in her patients' lives, the borders of her professional life and personal fantasies become blurred. Jean descends into a world where reality and the forces of her desires are disastrously at odds, which impacts her life and the lives of those around her.
