What’s Worth Watching: The Verdict is In: Check Out Sequestered
Sequestered, “Twelve Strangers” (Sunday, March 22, Crackle)
We do solemnly swear that Amazon and Netflix aren’t the only streaming services creating addictive original content. Exhibit A: This crafty 12-part mystery about a group of jurors tasked with deciding the fate of a man charged with abducting and killing a governor’s son. Not only is the case intriguing, so too is the casting: Patrick Warburton, best known as the comically dim superhero The Tick and Puddy on Seinfeld, plays the grieving politico with deep gravitas. And among the jurors, we get Arrow‘s Summer Glau, Chuck‘s Ryan McPartlin, and The Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Heather Dubrow.
But the true hook of Sequestered is the twist thrown in near the end of the first episode involving a young lawyer (Jesse Bradford) who starts to suspect that someone may be willing to kill to sway the verdict. Possibly someone sitting in the jury box. We won’t spoil it, but don’t be surprised if you dismiss everything else on your docket to binge right through to the end.
