I am confused by all these bad reviews. It's a tad bit of a slow burn but it's intelligent and original. I'm not a big fan of her either but that's not going to stop me from watching a good thriller that seems to have really good potential!
Why are you people give those bad reviews?, really it is so good and I think it will get better, every episode is more interesting than the previous one and the idea of the series reveal itself by time so don't judge it from the start!, the cinematography is great and the acting and also the writing!Are you seeing something else?Just give it a chance and go for it.
This mystery series follows Kirby (Elizabeth Moss, MAD MEN, THE HANDMAID'S TALE) , a survivor of a violent crime, whose life constantly changes around her in odd ways, as she helps the police track down her attacker before he strikes again.After reading some reviews, I decided to write one of my own, because I feel like this show is being largely misunderstood. The show is slow to reveal new information, because they set the viewer up with a lot right from the get-go. We already know who the attacker is, he's a mysterious serial killer played by Jamie Bell (ROCKETMAN, SNOWPIERCER). What we do not know is how he's doing it, or what exactly he's doing. There appears to be some time-travel element to his killings, and his victims experience some sci-fi after effects.I am thoroughly enjoying this show so far. Yes, it is slow burn. But it isn't boring, far from it. It feels like a crime-thriller told in reverse, with the attacker known, but the attacks a mystery. It isn't following the typical formula for crime thrillers, but it's trying something original. Very intriguing so far, don't miss out.
I don't get the reviews about the show being slow. I find it really creepy and it has an interesting mysterious element added to it. The scenes which portray the victims fear are terrifying. The story unfolds bit by bit and the acting is good. I think it's a pretty solid show in its genre.
I felt compelled to write a review seeing all the bad reviews here which don't seem to have much weight & seem agenda driven. I just finished the first 3 episodes and I'm quite intrigued.Yes it's a slow burn & slightly confusing as of now but it isn't boring at all. I find the whole idea of revealing the murderer first and then unraveling the logistics behind why and how he did it quite refreshing. I am very excited to see how they tie everything together. Plus this time travel/science fiction element is fascinating too.Do give it a chance! By listening to the negative reviews you are missing out on a good show.
Don't listen to TikTok attention spans. This is a good watch. Much like Apple TV's 'Invasion' the monster is something intangible and complicated. Elizabeth Moss is fantastic and sells the fragility of her character with ease. Like a prevailing wind, darkness tatters the edges of episode 1 repeatedly, hinting at an alternate reality.Give it a shot. You might enjoy it if have a few brain cells left up there after all the memes and gif animations have destroyed the rest.
The story is intriguing and takes the viewer on a wild chase. It is a slow start but very interesting. Mystery is solid. The series has solid acting. Character building is good.
Wagner Moura presences is very important. He doesn't save Shining Girl but his character does add much to the flow of the show... want more, watch and let yourself be absorbed into the surreal realism...
I don't have a clue what's going on, BUT my goodness the acting is superb. I know there is a story in this, I just haven't grasped yet. But, the way it's going, I will!!! I'm terrified and excited at the same time. Intense, dark, and puzzling.
Watched 3 so far. Genuinely getting more and more curious about where these characters and plot lines are going. Acting is great all around. Not finding it hard to follow or poorly paced as some critics suggested. 3 picked up a bit if you were finding 1&2 slow. I liked some of the trippy scenes with Dan.
A promising premise, a decent cast, but a lazy implementation bedevilled by clichéd camera craft, ponderous pace and telegraphed temporal twists.The very first scene is fabulous with the bee, the toy and the dialogue pointing to the nature of the two principal characters, their relationship and the distortion in time. Too much here to detail, but it hooked me right away!After such a magnificent start, my disappointment grew steadily through the first three episodes as there is no follow up. Elisabeth Moss makes a decent attempt to accommodate the poorly written script with a good performance. This, though, is insufficient to make the character or her story interesting or relatable enough to care about.
