Honest, Heart-breaking and Hopeful: Run Reminds us how Television Should Be
30 September 2014 | by totalovrdoseSee all my reviews

Run is not the stereotypical television program that many might be used to, and rather than being something that viewers may enjoy, or necessarily be entertained by, it captures the attention of all with its raw, taunt, inescapable poignancy, alongside the authentic characters and environments.

Over the course of each forty three minute episode, the creators and actors alike are able to brilliantly capture the characters to an extent, that by the end, we, the audience, feel as though we have known them all our lives. Each episode tells the story of one particular individual, each story eventually leading into the following episode. Rather than viewing the lives of traditional characters, we encounter individuals stricken by financial woe, poverty and social intolerance. A homeless heroine addict, an illegal Chinese immigrant, a Polish woman forced into a hopeless situation, and a single mother, are the four individuals we are introduced to over the course of the story.

Actors, like the always amazing Lennie James (Line of Duty, The Next Three Days, Columbiana)in his portrayal of the addict Richard as he fights to remain clean is as fantastic as it is heart-breaking, while the outstandingly beautiful Katie Leung (Harry Potter) and her interpretation of Chinese immigrant Ying, is not only powerfully mature, but meaningfully heart-felt. BAFTA award winning actress Olivia Colman (Tyrannosaur, Peep Show) as Carol and Katharina Schuttler (The Promise) as Kasia are equally magnificent in their roles, each of the actors commanding the screen with unflinching effectiveness.

Although on occasion I accurately guessed how an episode would conclude, I was never disappointed by the outcome, with every story remaining true to form. Even though characters are forced to occasionally commit unlawful acts, I never once stopped hoping for them. On more than one occasion I was positively bouncing as a miracle occurred in someone's life, while other times I found myself an inch from the screen, biting at my nails as I was swept up in the intensity of the situation.

With a musical score that fantastically conveys the brutality of the crushing moments the characters are forced to endure, Run reminds us that the concept of hope, is one of the most important, sought after emotions of all.

You don't need to agree with my observations, but I will say this; you, dear reader, will be doing yourself a great disservice if you do not watch this show. The writers of this program have developed something that is as rare as it is powerful; someone, please, buy these gentleman a beer; they certainly deserve it.
