Netflix viewers can't stop watching Who is Erin Carter? and have praised its 'great plot twist'.
The show, released last week (24 August), was created by two-time BAFTA nominee Jack Lothian and stars the likes of Berlin International Film Festival award-winner Evin Ahmad alongside Sean Teale, and Denise Gough.
There are currently eight episodes out for the show's first season and it's definitely garnered some very mixed opinions.
The plot for the series follows Erin Collantes, a British teacher in Spain (Ahmad), who finds herself caught up in a supermarket robbery and when one of the robbers claims to recognise her, her life threatens to unravel.
Netflix writes: "Sometimes running from your past leads you right back to it. That’s how things are shaping up for British expat Erin Carter after relocating to Barcelona.
"Her exit from the UK was a bit rushed, but we don’t quite know why, and when her local grocery store is held up by gunmen, Erin, now a substitute teacher, starts kicking a**.
"Like, hard. So much so that the police begin to wonder how she’s managed it. She’s a teacher. How does she know all these slick moves? Soon, her tranquil life in Spain spirals out of control, and her mysterious - and violent - past is exposed."
Gripping - right?
Well, it would seem that fans feel the same with one Twitter user praising the 'great plot twist' in the series.
"Who is Erin Carter? is a 10/10, definitely a great watch," declares a second.
A third chimed in: "Who is Erin Carter? is actually such a good series like there’s no boring moments!"
A fourth called the programme 'quality' while a fifth echoed: "Who is Erin Carter? is a must watch wth!!!"
While many clearly loved the series, others couldn't help but point out their issues with the show.
One Twitter user wrote: "Just finished a covid binge watch of Who is Erin Carter? on Netflix.
"Has some of the worst acting, clichés and plot turns in history and yet it was hard to stop watching it. A strange mix indeed. If you're looking for something to watch, give it a spin."
The Guardian also slammed the series' clichés as well as its dialogue writing in a review: "This mystery drama is deathly dull, packed with clichés and atrocious dialogue."
Guess you'll have to just watch it to see for yourself.
Who Is Erin Carter? is currently available to stream on Netflix.
