91% The Affair: Season 4 (TV, 2018) But now that most of the action has moved to California - with a bit in Montauk, Long Island, its original setting - it can truly be called triple X real-estate porn once again.‐ Jerusalem Post

64% Law & Order: True Crime: The Menendez Murders (TV, 2017) The series, which features the trademark Law & Order bongs, has its moments, but it suffers from a lack of likable characters.
