The first episode is directed by the maker of Warrior, Gavin O’Connor, and it is in the same emotional yet gripping and action-packed rhythm that Seven Seconds operates. A white police officer and his squad are involved in an attempt to cover up the hit-and-run of a black teenager. Too afraid to deal with the backlash, their plan is only met with a disorganized prosecutor, a heartbroken family and the guilt of the police officer. Themes of race and minorities are very present, not to mention treated in a very interesting way. However, the heart of the show remains the powerfully written thriller/drama. This, added to the amazing acting, especially by Regina King and Russell Hornsby make this show one of the best police dramas on Netflix.
