Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

One thing the recent wave of Netflix Harlan Coben adaptations (Safe, The Stranger) have in common is how well they establish the world around their protagonists. Gone for Good quickly builds a rich, complex world around its central character, Guillaume. For fans of mystery shows, the fun is in seeing how all the disparate elements come together. In this case include his brother's death, his girlfriend's disappearance, his first love's decade-old murder, a friend's ugly past, and secrets about his parents' relationship that come to light in the wake of his mother's death. But, while the mystery itself is intriguing, the show is slow and steady. Without the dramatic arcs and twists that episodic drama really needs to engage viewers, Gone for Good is for mystery fans only.
