I Loved "The Slap"
21 June 2015 | by jade-58434See all my reviews

I've read several of the reviews and definitely side with the positive ones. I enjoyed every episode, and was happy every week when a new episode came on. As for the content of the show, in my world, it's definitely wrong to go up and slap someones' child unless there's something totally insane going on, which was not the case in my opinion.

The characters were very strong and persuasive with great complexity. Although I could see the reason for the actual slap taking place, I also felt the slapper had abusive tendencies and an anger problem. At the same time the mother was way over the edge in her protectiveness. Interesting.

I knew from the beginning this was to be a mini series and that it would be about a controversial subject. I suspected it would give food for thought and it did just that. I like the mini-series/one season concept and hope this is the way of the future with TV drama. I enjoy the rich characters, interesting topics that explore the complexity of human behavior, and that don't go on forever and ever. Quality over quantity.

I never was a fan of the 'Friends' type sitcoms, or medical, or legal dramas, etc. This new short term intellectual concept is a very welcome change in my book, and I believe that it's attracting those actors, writers, and directors who have limited their work to feature films in the past. Excellent quality and a short term commitment will seem much more attractive and is sure to raise the quality of TV programming. Sounds like a win win to me. I hope the low ratings will not deter more like it!
