Disappointing
11 September 2014 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

I wanted to love this show - I really did. However, the cinematography can't really compensate for the shoddy, underwritten scripts the poor actors have been subjected to. Everyone is a cipher--a somber, miserable cipher, too. There is absolutely no effort at characterization aside from "meaningful" looks at both one another and at nothing. One can't help but compare it to Broadchurch--to which it is deeply indebted. But while that show was vivid and moving, this one is lifeless and boring. The suffering main character, Mathias, is an object lesson in delayed,teased-out motivation: really, six or so hours should be enough time to help us know what makes this man tick--and to care about it. His poor subordinates fare no better and are given virtually nothing to do. Wales deserves better.
