Episode 1 of Oxygen's 'Disappearance of Maura Murray'

Below is my review of the first episode in the 6-Part Oxygen series about Maura’s disappearance that premiered Saturday, September 23rd. The Good Thus far it seems as though Maggie and Art are challenging assumptions and not taking anything for granted, which is refreshing. They come across as skeptical yet open-minded, which is a great combination. The Bad James Renner. In my opinion, any time devoted to Renner is time that is wasted. I would prefer to see that time being used to discuss the real facts of the case. That said, I am not naïve. At the end of the day, the goal of television is “entertainment.” I get it.
