Fans are following up the Bryan Cranston drama with a 'riveting' detective drama

Nothing quite gets the blood pumping like a top crime thriller.

The show has shot to the top of the charts in the US, currently sitting at number two in the Netflix charts.

Your Honor is a crime drama starring Cranston as a judge whose son is involved in a hit and run.

This one incident drags both their lives into involvement with one of the most dangerous crime families around.

The show is a ‘riveting’ murder mystery thriller, which features Winslet playing against type as a dishevelled detective whose life is falling apart herself.

Mare of Easttown has a brilliant score of 95 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, and a similarly great 8.4/10 on IMDb.

The show also features a star-studded cast including Evan Peters, Angourie Rice, and Jean Smart.

It was also directed by Craig Zobel, who is set to direct the upcoming The Penguin series.

Whilst it’s not on Netflix in the UK, it’s the perfect next watch after Your Honour.

Not only are both gripping crime thrillers, there are spoiler-ish details that link both in a really engaging way.

Mare of Easttown is a limited series, meaning unfortunately only the one season – but that one season was universally beloved.

In Lucy Mangan’s five star review for The Guardian, they said Winslet’s performance was a ‘triumph’.

They said: “Alongside an able cast, the actor gives a defining performance in this perfectly conjured HBO drama set in a bleak and deprived corner of Pennsylvania.

“As the twists and turns of the cases are revealed, it becomes a show greater than the sum of its already considerable parts.”

This is a view echoed by The New Yorker, who included the show in their best shows of 2021.

They said: “This gruesome, engrossing miniseries had some terrific performances, including by Kate Winslet as the titular police detective.”’s review may have not had a star rating on it, but you can tell they also agree, saying: “The Brilliance is in the Details of HBO’s Riveting Mare of Easttown.”

It may be a bit harder to find than just sticking on Netflix, but if you loved Your Honour, Mare of Easttown is more than worth the effort for your next watch.
