Is It Any Good?

Those looking for a challenging drama with surprising layers should be satisfied with this genre-upending mystery. An ambitious detective stumbles into a deceptively complex case that could put their whole career at risk -- it's a well-worn cliche in this era of television where every third show is a police procedural. Yet The Capture smartly uses the familiar framing device as a way to "Trojan horse" a complex and vital topic into its central mystery: How much can we trust technology? And what happens when that trust is manipulated for nefarious purposes? It's this sandwich of ideas that gives this series depth and unexpected nuance.
