You'll soon notice how boring the whole thing has become
27 February 2018 | by rabbitmoonSee all my reviews

Before We Die starts promisingly. but soon descends into endless threads of soap-opera style pointlessness. The central idea (sort of like The Departed with a strained mother/son relationship) is spun out for all its worth. The problem is that each episode feels like its treading water, occasionally throwing a little idea in here and there to keep you from noticing how boring it actually is. The bad guys are not at all interesting in how they're written or acted, the only notable thing is how contrived they are - e.g. a villain seeing his wife having an affair, then keeping it to himself, being normal with his wife and the guy in question. Its simply not plausible, and another fault of the show treading water because it doesn't have the balls to move any of its pieces in a way that would corner the options. There is no emoting from the actors - just concerned faces, monotonous conversations in police rooms, corridors and kitchens. The young guy playing the mole, which the show really pivots on, comes across as far too gormless for the drive and motives of his character.

As a show, it just doesn't work, and I feel like it could have been told in two hours rather than an extremely boring, unfulfilling and unengaging ten.
