Brilliant
24 May 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Brilliant mini TV series. Devil's Playground is inspired from the 1976 film Devil's Playgroung and it is kind of a sequel to it. I haven't watched the 1976 film (although after watching the series I would like to) and didn't find any difficulties following the narrative of the series. It is a mystery situated in 1988 Australia, after the disappearance of a thirteen year old boy from a Catholic school. A beautifully made psychological thriller about the 1980's society and the church. Very realistic. The plot unravels really smooth, there are plot twists and what I enjoyed most about this series is that the characters are not what they appear to be, like in real life. The acting is great and I absolutely loved John Noble as Bishop Vincent Quaid (he is a great actor and I wish he had his own show). I couldn't stop watching, as I was so intrigued to see what happens next. I highly recommend it.
