Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Slow, murky, and expertly written, this series is the kind of dark drama that rewards viewers who don't need an explosion or twist every seven minutes. The goings-on of Chance have a strong whiff of Hitchcock -- and Mol is a perfect blonde cipher of a heroine, Kim Novak in Vertigo or Grace Kelly in Rear Window -- and of classic noir mysteries, in ways that will thrill fans of the genre and probably bore others. There are plenty of scenes in which characters sit pensively in shadowy rooms thinking or walk slowly up a street, telegraphing their emotions with subtle facial expressions.

But it's easy to see why Dr. Chance is caught up in this fascinating case and why he's consorting with shady characters who promise him a way out of his financial worries. Viewers who don't mind their revelations unspooling slowly will be fascinated with this mature drama and willing to wait for its mysteries to reveal themselves.
