This show just keeps getting better and better.
While there was nothing particularly bad about the first two installments of the series, Trust Season 1 Episode 4 (like the one immediately before) has been far more exciting and intriguing.
Again, I know that the real Getty family has issues with the show's representation of events. And, of course, it's totally within their right to protest.
However, as a viewer, the creative liberties Danny Boyle & Co. have taken with Paul's story have made the show all the more entertaining.
With the recent influx of crime dramas – the two seasons of American Crime Story, in particular – I've always been able to appreciate and enjoy them as well-made pieces of TV. But the stories have never propelled me forward.

The twists and turns throughout the past few episodes of Trust have made the series one I'm always eager to see more of and one full of genuine excitement and drama, despite already knowing the ultimate outcome.

This go-around, we got to spend time in Italy's mountains, where Primo and the kidnappers were keeping Paul. Sure enough, the scenery was gorgeous.
While Primo's motives have been decidedly nefarious, those around him are less straightforward villains.
For example, on this installment, we met Fifty, the nervous, non-criminal cousin of Primo and estate lawyer. Primo essentially forced Fifty to act as the intermediary negotiator, going back and forth between Primo and the Getty family for the ransom demand.
Getty: So what are you saying? This business is not a hoax? My grandson really has been kidnapped?
Fletcher: What I'm saying is that when people start getting killed, whatever it is, it's not a hoax anymore.
Permalink: What I'm saying is that when people start getting killed, whatever it is, it's not a hoax... Added: April 15, 2018 This show has been surprisingly lighthearted and humorous at times. Pretty much every moment with Fifty was an example of that.
The scene where Fifty tried to get up his nerve to make the ransom demand was hysterical.
I couldn't stop laughing throughout the entire sequence where he tried to ..
