We’re Ready for 10 Episodes of Mystery In Peacock’s Poker Face
Good modern mysteries are hard to find these days. Ask most people what murder mystery they last watched and the answer will probably be Knives Out or its standalone sequel Glass Onion. Many other contemporary attempts to portray a detective or other sleuthing person solve a complicated crime seem to fail (looking at you, Amsterdam) or get little to no buzz (like the perfectly fine See How They Run).
Writer, producer, and director Rian Johnson’s success with Knives Out shows he’s got the best shot at bringing a fresh perspective to the murder mystery genre. Already a third Knives Out sequel is being formulated. And while audiences wait to see Daniel Craig return as Benoit Blanc, Johnson has a new TV mystery for fans of weekly whodunit shows.
Poker Face stars Natasha Lyonne (who you know and love from American Pie, Orange is the New Black, and Russian Doll) as Charlie, a woman with a preternatural ability to tell when someone is lying. She’s not a cop, but her unique skill gives her an unstoppable itch to find the truth when there’s a dead body involved. Reminiscent of the famed fictional detective show Columbo, Poker Face provides viewers with one thing first and foremost: the murder. The joy is in watching Charlie find the murderer and (hopefully) give them the justice they deserve. The show is also filled with guest stars (Adrien Brody stars in the first episode, for example), adding an extra layer of excitement to anyone who tunes in.
If you want an enjoyable mystery show with stellar acting, here’s when you should tune in to Poker Face.
