Is It Any Good?

The sultry series, which is written solely by women, attempts the unravel the puzzle of a young woman's strange disappearance within a provocative story world. Each Eden episode is told from the point of view of a different character, and highlights their individual experiences within the context of the mystery that surrounds them. Also central to the series is the burgeoning love story between Scout and Hedwig, which is cut short because of events that ensue.

It's a solid premise, and the cast's morally ambiguous behavior heightens the enigmatic nature of the show. But when it comes to other themes, like addiction, trauma, mysticism, and classism, the narrative feels uneven and underdeveloped. Some of cinematic, arthouse-type scenes are interesting, but don't add much to the story. As a result, Eden leaves you feeling it was trying to take you on a deeper, more conceptual journey, but never quite succeeds. Some folks may consider it a guilty pleasure, but as far as mysteries go, it doesn't live up to its potential.
