Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This intense but sensitive series offers a suspenseful story, but manages to do so without exploiting the real victims of these crimes. Granted, some of what is presented in The Vanishing Triangle is based on unsubstantiated media suggestions that many of these crimes were committed by at least one serial killer. It also points to some believable reasons why these crimes were never solved, including (but not limited to) the corruption, systemic sexism, and lack of coordination throughout Ireland's national police force during that era. The Vanishing Triangle is an overall well-produced thriller that is worth the watch. However, the horrific story behind it may take a while to shake off.
