Entertaining.
23 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A good show with interesting plot lines that keep you engaged and entertained. Though it's called Ripper Street we don't actually see Jack The Ripper but instead live in the overarching shadow of him, which quite frankly was a much better story line that simply having him run amuck, not only has that been done before but we all now how it ends.

The series instead, depicts life in 19th Century Whitechapple, and does it very well, through the 8 episode season we are shown the hopes, fears, troubles, growths and grim realities of the time; everything from the development of science (and opposition against it by some) to the pestilence of Cholera. I'm not an expert of the age so I can't really say how accurate these depictions actually were but from my estimation they were quite true to the point.

So now we have an interesting show during an interesting period, what we need now s interesting characters. Sadly we don't get them. The characters here are as stereotypical as they can come, and so are their personal story lines, which we see bits and pieces of throughout the season. Had the creates taken some more time and come up with complex, un-predictable characters he show might have evolved into a higher dimension, but non-the-less the characters we have are good enough for entertainment and makes the show fun to watch.
