Season 2 review
19 December 2018 | by MUFCOKSee all my reviews

I loved the first season of the Sinner, so naturally, when I saw that season 2 was being realised, I was both excited and apprehensive. I won't explain the plot as it would be hard to not give anything away and I want to keep this review spoiler free.

Season 2 stands completely on its own, the only thing linking the two seasons is the main detective (Harry Ambrose, played by Bill Pullman). I binge watched all 8 episodes in 1 day and overall I found it to be a very gripping season.

Positives: 1) It is shot beautifully. The cinematography is gorgeous with well-crafted scenes. 2) The acting is solid from pretty much everybody. Bill Pullman and Carrie Coon are particular standouts. 3) The story is intriguing, and the pacing is very good, meaning that after every episode you just have to watch another. The 8 episodes flew by.

Negative: 1) The last couple of episodes got a little 'too much'. There were a few too many twists for my liking, with a couple of them leaving me with the 'really?' feeling. Some of the twists took it from being a really realistic drama to the point of being a little too unbelievable.

The first season was better and overall season 2 is strong and should be viewed on its own merit as it has next to no links to the first season. Personally, I think the negative reviews that this season is getting are a little harsh. This show is much better than many TV shows. It has good acting, cinematography, pacing, storytelling, characters and tension. All episodes are around 40 minutes, taking the entire runtime just over 5 and a half hours - Very easy to binge watch in a day!

Season 2 rating: 8/10
