User Reviews

The first series in a long time where the unexpected is expected!!!
24 March 2017 | by kamraheeshSee all my reviews

The last series that I watched so fresh was Broadchurch's first season. I mean wow what a pilot! Transitions were perfect acting was perfect and I can't comment on the story yet, just seen the first episode. But, with this solid beginning, I am sure this series is going to be great. For those who haven't watched it yet.

I would like to say if you are tired of predictable, daily series and want to see something that 'literally' makes you doubt every assumption you make of the story, this is it. Along with that story, the brilliance is in its cinematography.
