Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This grim and shadowy series features a multitude of strange, intensity-filled plot lines that interconnect in different ways. Investigators Molly McGee and Alex O'Connell are central to the story, but the members of the ensemble cast also play integral roles in it, even if it isn't readily apparent. The various quiet tensions between cast members also create a sense of mystery.

If you're looking for a clearly laid out narrative, you won't find it here. The plot twists are many, and each episode seems to raise more questions than provide answers. Nonetheless, the overall viewing experience is both fun and thrilling. If you're looking for a solid and modern crime noir experience, The Gloaming is worth checking out.
