We just finished watching S3, not because we though it was so good, but just because my need for closure wanted to know how it ended. And it turned out it was even worse than the previous season.

This show has the most unlikeable cast of characters I've seen on a series and it begins with Marcella herself. I have no idea why I continue to watch it. I gave this series 8 stars the first season but 2 seasons later that's now down to 4 stars because of an unlikeable cast, other than Rav, and writing that makes no sense. Marcella herself is too disturbed to be trusted with anything.

I can honestly say I've never seen anything quite like Marcella. Unfortunately I don't mean that it in a good way. The first season was entertaining if a little frustrating due to having plot points hanging in the air, but I could accept that as it was obvious those plot points would be picked up in season two. It was (note - was) a fairly standard police drama - gritty setting, messed up detective etc. Sure it was a bit silly and far fetched in places but it remained fairly grounded. Then came the second season, and wow I don't know what happened in the writer's room, but someone, somewhere lost the plot. Character after character is introduced to the point where there were so many stories going on that it became hard to keep track of everything. But don't worry I said to myself, at some point all of these stories will come together into an epic finale. And yet no they didn't, many were left unresolved, characters that had big parts for multiple episodes (if not most of the season) suddenly disappeared without trace never to be mentioned again. Worse still, each of the stories got more and more far fetched and unbelievable to the point where aliens could land and you'd probably just accept it. For a police drama there was very little actual police work being carried out, every break in the case came from coincidence - which occurred at an increasingly alarming rate. Many of the plot points from season once were reintroduced early on but then never mentioned again leaving parts of the story still unexplained. Worse still, the writer even said in an interview that it didn't matter about the disappearing characters or unexplained plot points as it was just like real life in which we don't know what happens to everyone we meet. Ermmm well no actually, that isn't how writing in any form works. Finally, I'm not sure how to even talk about the final episode of season two as fter all the ridiculous twists and turns, it ramps things up to 11. I think the editor must have edited in footage from a completely different show as the final ten minutes are probably the worst and most hilariously bad change of plot line I've ever seen. I'd almost recommend watching both seasons purely to see what I mean. If ever a show has been made up as the writer went along then it's this one. Sadly despite the awful writing (which to repeat is the worst I've ever seen), I probably would watch season 3 if there is one, because I can't wait for the episodes when she either:

A) wakes up and realised she's still a child and it was all just a nightmare after watching too many episodes of Paw Patrol.

Or

B) is saved by a Doc Brown who asks her to go back to the future to ride hover boards and save the world.

I rarely write reviews, but I felt the need to warn fans of this show to not watch season three. We've all suffered through some dreck before, but season three was unforgivable. I can't see how it wont be a career killer for not just the writers but all of the cast as well. Anna Friel is a decent actress, but this was definitely a low point in her career. Her performance made me not want to see her in anything ever again. Granted, the script was a complete and total mess, but she didn't have the chops to save it.. as a matter of fact, she made it worse. It was so bad that everyone involved should just remove this series from their resumes. I can't say it more bluntly: Season three was just a big steaming pile from which everyone involved just needs to distance themselves.

I can't believe I watched all but the last three episodes. I kept hoping it would redeem itself. What a mess. Unbelievable, unexplainable. I got to where I couldn't stand Marcella. The story was so "write as you go". I had to comment here, it insulted my intelligence. Don't waste your time watching this one.

curtispeace 29 January 2021

I regret to day I watched it for you, it is the most ridiculously stupid BS imaginable, the main character has absolutely no redeeming qualities whatsoever, not to mention the story of you wanna call it that is preposterous, jesus, that's me for sacrificing my brain cells for you so you can live a life without watching this rubbish, don't watch this!

By season 3 they have managed to make their lead character the most annoying character. Time for her to go.
