TV Series: Gracepoint S01 (2014) – Great buildup but disappointing conclusion

UnknownMy dad pointed me to this show starring Anna Gunn and David Tennant a few episodes into the season. It is a murder mystery based on a successful British show also starring David Tennant called Broadchurch. Not having seen the original, it is hard to judge which was the better version. I found that the buildup throughout was pretty good and I really was wondering week to week who killed Danny. However, the ending (no spoilers I promise) was a bit underwhelming. I feel that they built up some particular suspects but that the payoff in the last episode was unsatisfying. That is not taking away from the excellent acting and even the beautiful photography, but perhaps because it was on network TV or perhaps because they ran out of time or inspiration, I was left wanting at the end.

Anyone else try this one?
