If you're a huge fan of Harlan Coben's novels then you're probably regularly tuned into Netflix since the streamer previously made a deal to adapt more than 14 of his books. The latest adaptation is Fool Me Once, based on Coben's novel of the same name. Fool Me Once follows Maya Stern (Michelle Keegan), who is still dealing with the aftermath of her husband, Joe Burkett's (Richard Armitage) murder.

So imagine her surprise when she sees some nanny cam footage that shows her seemingly dead husband hanging out with their young daughter. Did the nanny let him into the house? Does she know something? Maya starts spiraling as she tries to put two and two together and figure out the truth about what happened to her husband.

Fool Me Once has been a huge success for Netflix and easily one of the biggest 2024 releases so far, but the plot is borderline nonsensical and while the show is an easy watch, it gets hard to keep up with the crazy amount of twists and turns. Unless you love Coben's work, this might be a skip.

Verdict: SKIP
