Was hopeful

I have only begun to watch this series and was thrilled when I checked the parental guide and it had listed no sexual junk and very few minor foul words. Well, second episode had f@&k and plural of that. Why?

Totally hooked! I really really hope there will be a season 2! Don’t leave us hanging!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This show is an example of how, in the streaming era, a lot of simple premises that could be satisfying movies are getting stretched into TV shows. Night Sky has the lugubrious pace of a show built for binging while multitasking. The upside of Night Sky's 8-episode length, though, is that it showcases two incredible performances by world-class actors Spacek and Simmons.
