Strong moments combined with borderline stupidity, saved by superb acting
Safe is about a family living in a sort of a community. After the loss of his wife, he is trying to move on with his daughters and new girlfriend. But everything falls apart when is daughter turns out missing after a party, and everyone seems to have one small bit of a puzzle, which is otherwise also connected to a mysterious shared past.
Michael C Hall plays the father who was never there, and is now desperately searching for his daughter in a series that brilliantly merges flashbacks with strong storytelling. Besides Hall, the supporting cast is amazing as well.
The minus, is the stupidity that appears more and more. Decisions like confronting bad people alone, instead of informing the police, thrusting unknown people and not your own family, not recognizing blatant lies etc. etc. All this is used to create tension and momentum, but wouldn't it be refreshing if series depended less on stupid decisions and find more creative ways to expand a story? Still, this series is interesting and exciting and absolutely worth a watch.
