Let me preface this by saying it seems lots of critics trash this show based solely on the fact that it's written by Melissa Rosenberg, who also happened to pen the screenplays for the Twilight franchise. Apparently that is grounds for the show's premise to be instantly labeled as as "contrived" and "misguided." Perhaps the show is too female-centric to score many points with the male majority critics, but I find the concept appealing and very watchable.

Marta Walraven (nee Petrov)'s life is turned upside down by her husband's violent death, the consequences of his shady business partnership with her brother, Irwin, and their longtime friend, Mike. She inherits the fallout in the form of a large (and temporarily missing) shipment of stolen cocaine and a Romanian mob boss named Schiller seeking compensation for his stolen shipment in the form of her unwilling employment as his import/export handler for smuggled drugs and guns. Thus she is dragged back into her family's Bratva (Russian mob) lifestyle that she had tried so hard to distance herself and her children from, and in the midst of this, has to contend with her own grief and that of her three children; some very persistent feds sniffing at her door; family tension between brother Irwin, the coke thief, and her father Andrei Petrov, Russian mob patriarch; and the constant scheming between her coke fiend business partner, Mike, and Irwin who want to get their hands on the stolen (and belatedly recovered) cocaine to snort and/or sell it.

If that's not good drama, I'm not sure what is.

Is it "Breaking Bad" or "Weeds" or "The Sopranos"...? No, but I didn't expect it to be. This is network television, not cable.

Great show! Can't say enough good things about it. Never having watched it before, I caught the finale on TV and had to go back to watch the series in its entirety, even after I knew how it ended. It's a nice balance of suspense, romance, drama, and action without being predictable. The script is well written and doesn't insult the intelligence. The story revolves around a woman who is drawn into the criminal world through the actions of her family as she struggles to find a way to cut her ties to it while keeping her family safe. I enjoyed all the subplots and the characters were well developed. If you like Revenge, you will like this show, which in my opinion completely surpasses that soap opera melodrama. Unfortunately, I understand ABC canceled the series, but even so, the show wraps up nicely by the 8th episode.

Happy to see broadcast TV coming out with solid competition to those horrific reality shows. Red Widow is a great ride, well-acted with a nice twist -- Russian mob instead of the same old Mafia tale! And the chemistry between Marta and Schiller is palpable!! So I'm sure ABC will cancel (programming decisions make zero sense these days) and we'll just have this first season to view over and over again.

Anson Mount is a good actor, very good. It surprised me he didn't last longer in the series but I understood he had his commitments with the series "Hell on Wheels". Still, after the pilot the showed kinda died on me for a few episodes but then it picked up thanks in large part to Radha Mitchell's performance.

She is a underrated actress, very good & talented. The show was hers to control and steer and she did. It was intriguing throughout even though it was short and later cancelled. Red Widow did not have life to carry out for another season but...it should have deserved a second.

It started off very slow, building the characters and the plot. After the 1st episode you get to see how tragedy and it's aftermath can change not just one person but everyone it touches. All the while your left with the mystery of who killed her husband and how is she to protect herself and her children from the same fate. If you love True blood don't bother watching this. Their is no full frontal nudity and over the top drama queens. It's well acted with a good plot arc. It covers so much in just the 8 episodes. It's a drama, a murder mystery, and the start of a romance. The only down side is it leaves you wanting more, like a second season and possibly a third, because it only gets better.

Red Widow is, by far, one of the best TV thriller series in quite some time.
The plot moves at a fast pace and keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.
I meant to begin watching when it first aired, but didn't catch it until the fourth week. Thank goodness for Amazon. I immediately downloaded the 3 earlier shows and stayed up until 2 AM to watch them all.

I can't WAIT until next week! Buy it today - you won't be sorry.

Really like this show. It's about a woman who takes over for her deceased husband, who was killed. The husband owed the "wrong" people and now these people have enlisted the wife to assume his role. It turns out she is better at it, than he was. Strong group of actors on the show.
