Storyline

Naz is a strait-laced Pakistani-American student who is off to a must-attend party on a Friday night. His only available transportation being his father's taxi cab, Naz sets off into Manhattan. But his party-going plans are quickly forgotten when a mysterious young woman jumps aboard in need of a ride. Charmed by her intense intrigue and good looks, Naz gets swept up by her pressures. After a mind-altering night of drugs and passion, the woman is dead, and Naz finds himself in the crosshairs of a gruesome murder investigation, panicked and shaken, but possibly with a trace of doubt as to his own innocence.

Trivia

John Stone's problems with his feet seem to reflect Naz's situations; the worse Naz's situation gets, the worse Stone's condition gets. See more »

Goofs

The plot turns on Nasir "borrowing" his father's medallion taxi on a Friday night. Most medallion taxis are not parked on the street overnight, and Friday night is peak time for NYC taxis - it did not make sense for it to be out of service. See more »

User Reviews

 
The story is just a small part of it
13 July 2016 | by lamichhane-ranjanSee all my reviews

What I like about this kind of series is that the story is good by itself but its by no means outstanding. The most important aspect is the storytelling, the presentation, the psychological tour of the characters, the portrayal of different cultures, and family, and relationships, and professions. That's the most impressive thing about this series.

One of the most fascinating things about shows like this is the characters itself are so rich. I've seen very few TV shows that covers extremely sophisticated characters like Matthew on True Detective, and this girl on 'The Night of', and Naz himself. For me, just focusing on the story line for the sole purpose of entertainment is like just focusing on guitar sounds in a piece of music.

This is the reason why I love the first season of True Detective, and this is the same reason why I love this series just after one episode.
