The third and final season of Bloodline is finally here & I’ve already binged it. If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know how much I love a good Netflix Original. I’ve been watching this one since the beginning and today I wanted to give you a quick no-spoiler review. My thoughts on the series overall.
Bloodline is a dramatic thriller based in Florida Keys focusing on a family that owns a beachfront inn. This show gives us a close up view of the Rayburn family. A mother, a black sheep, a detective, a lawyer, and a marina owner. Basically, a family full of liars with some dark secrets that they’d prefer stay in the past.
The cast in this series is so good. Kyle Chandler, AKA Coach T from Friday Night Lights, is
fucking amazing as John Rayburn, the second eldest brother. If you’ve seen Freaks & Geeks you’ll recognize Linda Cardellini as Meg Rayburn, the only sister. Ben Mendelson as Danny Rayburn is so. good. His performance is haunting and unnerving in all the best ways. And then there’s Sissy Spacek who you better recognize as the girl from Carrie. So, the cast is not lacking familiar faces, really excellent.
The first season was my favorite, but honestly I really love the whole series. It was originally supposed to be like 5 or 6 seasons rather than 3, so the ending feels a bit rushed. But, still a slow-burning suspense with a really addicting storyline. And some really cool camera angles and transitions, just filmed really well.
