Mare and My Hypocrisy

By Michael Patrick, Ph.D.

There are moments when my natural hypocrisy knows no bounds. A recent incident has been my addiction to Kate Winslet’s performance as a detective solving a murder and missing persons cases in HBO’s series “Mare of Easttown”.

I’ve held off watching the finale that aired May 30, so no spoilers please. The show is gritty, fresh, well-written, and filled with surprises good and bad. Somehow, I understand deeply this character’s still-grieving instincts, and I wish I knew her in real life.

The characters are flawed, so I don’t recommend it to many of my friends—hence my hypocrisy. The attached NYT interview with Kate Winslet about her work on the show offers context. I found the article worthwhile.
