Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

A murder mystery is an ambitious use of Quibi's short-form platform: 10-minute episodes seem like a tough way to establish a complex web of suspects and motives. But When the Street Lights Go On's brief installments feel confident and content-rich, each revealing as much information as, say, a chapter of a novel. The screenplay has been floating around for years, reaching some notoriety, and this is an interesting way to finally see it presented. With continued solid writing and complex but clear storytelling, it's probably worth sticking around to see the murderer unveiled.
