User Reviews

 
Skip the big screen and indulge in this, instead

From the very outset, this chilling portrait of a family in turmoil grabs the viewer by the throat and forces you to walk through the foray of penultimate storytelling at the hands of Beaufoy, beautifully crafted by the vision of Boyle.

From Sutherland's seething view of J Paul, to the brilliant characterization of Brendan Frazer, this series proves to be everything the big screen version couldn't live up to; riveting abridgment that seems intent to begin a slowburn with ample kindling and fierce fuel.

It's high time we acknowledge the ability of fabulous craftsmen to tell a vivid portrayal just as spectacularly on the small screen as that of the theater screen.

This looks to be a wild and entrancing ride that I very much look forward to viewing. My only regret is that this is not available for binging and we must endure a weekly wait for the next installment.
