Honestly one of the best written shows I've ever seen
27 January 2018 | by decster98See all my reviews

It's rare to come across a show that has the perfect balance of dramatic tension, comedic relief, and epic story-lines. The relationships between the characters never seem forced or pushed, they all develop naturally as the seasons progress. This show is very similar to Breaking Bad in a sense that what you get at the beginning is not what you'll have by the ending, similar also to Breaking Bad, 'In the night garden' is truly a show about the process of transformation, about going from one state to another, and I don't think I'm alone in saying that it did it better than BrBa. You'd be doing yourself a disservice to skip over this.

It's easy to draw comparisons to shows like 'Game of Thrones', 'Breaking Bad', 'Mr Robot', 'Doctor Who' and 'The Wire' but in the end, 'In the night garden' is a rare, unique gem, you'd be hard pressed to find another show that can add this many layers of tension and not crumble under the pressure it's put on itself. Every single episode (except for maybe some in the middle of season 3, the shows ONLY slightly weak spot), is absolutely fantastic and will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end, and let me tell you, the finale of the final season does not disappoint, all the differing story arcs collide together in an epic final episode which ties up every loose end and leaves you wanting more, but satisfied with the stories incredible, heart wrenching climax, expect tears. It's close to impossible to find another show with writing THIS consistently perfect.

With a series this tightly written, perfectly directed and incredibly acted, I just can't see any show stealing it's #1 spot for a very very long time. In a sense this is the pinnacle of all television, this is the finest example of the small-screen out-performing the big-screen. I personally can't wait to see what the creators do next. Do yourself a favour and watch this, this is literally the perfect show.

Proud to say that 'In the Night Garden' receives a perfect '10'
