“I think you’ve mistaken me for someone else…”
Who Is Erin Carter? premiered on August 24th 2023 on Netflix with all seven episodes available to stream now. The action-thriller limited series stars Evin Ahmad, Sean Teale, Indica Watson, Douglas Henshall, and Charlotte Vega. Each episode runs for approximately 45-55 minutes.
A school teacher named Erin gets caught in the middle of an armed robbery at a supermarket, but when one of the robbers recognizes her, her past comes back to haunt her, threatening her new suburban life.
Here is the trailer:
Who Is Erin Carter? is a satisfying mix of Desperate Housewives and Nikita, featuring a strong female lead to root for. Is it worthy of YOUR next watch? Let’s find out…
Addicting and guilty pleasure worthy!
I watched all seven episodes in one day. I was completely hooked on this series from start to finish. The first episode did an excellent job of setting the tone for the entire series. Usually it takes me a few episodes to adjust to a new show, but this one started off with a bang and never slowed down.
The fight scenes were INCREDIBLE and really inventive. I also thought the balance of guilty pleasure drama and action worked in this particular show. The reveals were well placed and each episode did enough to hook you at the end for more.
Our lead character elevates every scene to the max!
I was not too familiar with Evin Ahmad before this, but it’s safe to say that I am now a huge fan. She was bad-ass, funny, and so entertaining. I absolutely loved her character!
In a way, she reminded me a lot of Sameen Shaw’s character on Person of Interest portrayed by Sarah Shahi. The actresses look similar and those edgy and naturally bad-ass qualities of Sameen were also found in Erin, which I truly enjoyed. It was so easy to root for her. She was far from perfect, but she felt real and relatable.
Even when some of the dialogue felt slightly cliché or silly, she helped me move past that immediately with the intention behind her performance. She made this series what it was and I hope to see her in more series soon.
The rest of the cast did a great job too. The actress playing her daughter made her character really likable and Charlotte Vega went all out with her suburban housewife portrayal.
A show I’ve seen before…
I’m not going to pretend that this series did anything that new in the female spy category. A lot of the reveals were pretty predictable and the premise was one I’ve seen before.
That being said, this series was still entertaining and Evin Ahmad helped this one stand out against similar shows.
So am I in or out?
I’m in 100 percent!!!
Edgy, entertaining, and exactly what I want from a Netflix series!
If you enjoy female spy thrillers with a touch of juicy drama, you’ll find plenty to enjoy with this series. It was very easy to binge-watch and a lot of fun!
