The Sister – Hulu
Talk about a good, mystery-slash-ghost story all wrapped up in one! If you have not seen it yet, definitely check out the 4-episode (yes, only 4!) series on Hulu called ‘The Sister.’ This is a good one for watching popcorn because you can’t wait to find out what is going to happen next and since it is so short you can binge watch the series all at once!
The story centers on Nathan Redman (played by Russell Tovey) who is happily married, living in a beautiful home, and he and his wife have good careers. The only thing they want more than anything at this point is to have kids and they are having some difficulty (I mention this as it plays into something later on). One night a man rings his doorbell and this is where it all starts! The minute he opens the door, you can see the look of panic and dread on Nathan’s face and naturally you know this is going to be good (or bad)! The man is allowed inside, Bob Morrow (played by Bertie Carvel), but just before he leaves – rather, forced to go – he notices something hanging on Nathan’s wall and says something to the effect of, ‘I can’t believe you would do this’ or something like that. Anyway, nail biter stuff!
At this point you get some details but a good bit of it comes from flashbacks from seven years ago and you find out what has happened and why Nathan is so nervous all of a sudden. The storyline picks up and as mentioned previously, you know certain secrets are going to come out but there are some twists that take place as well.
While this is not the best show or series I have seen, it is a pretty darn good one in my opinion and it definitely kept me engrossed. The end – wow!
