Boring and far-fetched
4 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

A man is shot to death right at the beginning. A little 8 year old is believed the be guilty of his murder (she's holding the gun that shot him). But, for no good reason, the kid refuses to speak to anybody at all about anything. Did she do it or was it someone else? You'll probably figure it out long before the end.

This is from the first season on the "Thriller" TV series. I heard that the show was mostly supposed to be horror but I'm finding out it started out with mostly suspense dramas. That's unfortunately true and they aren't that good. This is, so far, the worst one I've seen from season one (I'm watching them in order). The script is pretty stupid with too many characters and lots of implausible elements--the kid not speaking doesn't even scratch the surface. To make it worse is there's some terrible overacting AND underacting (quite a feat that). A pretty dull 45 minutes. You can safely skip this one.
