S3E1 is an utter waste of time
29 October 2016 | by xhidden99See all my reviews

It could have accomplished with 1 minute of Previously on The Fall. Instead we're treated to a full length documentary on ER aad trauma surgery process. Not kidding, literally the ENTIRE episode is a real time ER visit. No plot no story almost no dialog apart from medical jargon. It almost beyond belief why they made this. My criticism of The Fall has always been that it's Slow Burn pacing was so bad that it had to be an aggressive act of hatred against the audience. But this episode mines new depths in slow motion nothing happening frustration. It's so bad it might be a joke. A very dark boring joke. Or some kind of weird Zen experiment
