Guilt is just like any other of these crime-dramas of late like How to Get Away with Murder and The Killing, though both of those series are/were superior to this which takes more than a few cues from the real-life case of Amanda Knox accused of murder in Italy and the media circus that proceeded. Fans of any of Shonda Rhimes dramas might find the series entertaining; I didn’t.

SEASON SYNOPSIS


When a young woman (REBEKAH WAINWRIGHT) is brutally murdered in her London flat, the search for her killer — and the chief suspect is her roommate (DAISY HEAD) — leads to a scandal and intrigue stretching all the way from underground sex clubs to the highest levels of the Royal family.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 1.75/5


The 3-disc set is housed in a standard DVD case; inside is a Digital Copy code and an Episode Guide pamphlet. Not many features are included, just a basic “Guilt”: Sex, Sin & Scandal (8:13) featurette and some Deleted Scenes (7:49).

 

VIDEO – 4.0/5, AUDIO – 4.0/5


Guilt is presented with a 16×9 enhanced 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and mostly looks fine with bright enough colors even in the face of dark overtones while the Dolby Digital 5.1 dispenses dialogue with clarity and the choice pop/dramatic songs come through well enough.

OVERALL – 3.0/5


Overall, Guilt is just like any other of these crime-dramas of late like How to Get Away with Murder and The Killing, though both of those series are/were superior to this which takes more than a few cues from the real-life case of Amanda Knox accused of murder in Italy and the media circus that proceeded. Fans of any of Shonda Rhimes dramas or even Pretty Little Liars (though by comparison, that show is more tongue-in-cheek in some ways) might find the series entertaining. For myself, I found it to be tedious though the star Daisy Head, daughter Anthony Head who makes a few guest appearances, is pretty to look at as are the rest of the cast.
