The Alienist, Season 1 Reviews

Excellent show  Disneyfan01  5 star

The book is fantastic, I recommend reading it. The producers have done a wonderful job with the show. Pretty close to the book. The visuals are fantastic.

Feels Very Holmesian  raikenclw  5 star

As others have said, kudos for the production values. This show feels a good Conan Doyle novel brought to life, but with a different set of characters. I don't understand the poster upthread who complained that no motivations were shown. Dr. Kriezler's motivations are obvious: he is both fascinated by the minds of children and also feels guilty about the unsolved murder of the Zwiez boy. [He's also very Holmes-like]. Sara's motivation is equally obvious: she's a feminist and a career woman in a time when such a thing was truly rare [Doyle's Irene Adler as a cop]. Moore's motivation is the clearest of all; he's an everyman who's trying his best to help a rather weird friend (John Watson as a whoremonger). What's not to like?

Dakota Fanning!!  Moviegal  5 star

This is such a brilliant show!

Really Excellent  majorthomas  5 star

I have had a tough time understanding the cool change within entertainment wherein certain short run television series can be as powerful as one long great motion picture. The nexus of this series being basically ‘Jack the Ripper’ in New York; is enough to check out the time frame and vibe of this show. Even though the acting can be a little stiff; Bruhl is amazing as the doctor or ‘Alienist’. The attention to detail is similar to ‘Taboo’ with Tom Hardy. In other words; very exacting and macabre. I actually am waiting for each new episode with interest rarely this strong for this motif. Definitely not a family show due to the nature of the story. But if you are a fan of ‘From Hell’ then enjoy this strange view of pseudo history.

Over The Top Time Waster  Moschell  2 star

I’ll give this series an extra star for set production. Otherwise, after 4 episodes in, it just doesn’t keep your attention. There is not ONE likable character. This show was overly advertised for months before it debuted (clearly somebody had faith in it). When I went to LA on the release week it was on every bus/billboard/park bench... so I started it. It’s downfall is the acting. SO OVER dramatic. It’s like watching a bad local theatre production. The leads are so ridiculously over dramatic. My partner and I even mock it around the house while having regular conversations that we “Alienist-ate”. A genuine fail. Ridiculously over-acted and not a single character that intrigues (except the mute servant woman).

Parallax Condor
Way to aim for the middle  Parallax Condor  2 star

Want a GOOD period cop show? Try the German-language BABYLON BERLIN on Netflix. Daniel Brühl and the production values are the only good things about this. It’s heavy-handed and spoon-fed like everything Turner produces. There’s no effort to explain the motivations of any of the major characters, even halfway through the second episode. The source material isn’t the greatest, but anyone could’ve improved upon the Carr novel. Pass.

Meh...nothing to write home about.  Rdubesq  2 star

Didn't knock my socks off, didn't bore me. First episode spent way too much time on the "gritty realism" (which always feels fake) of the time, and failed to engage the characters with the audience. Dakota Fanning is the only reason I'll be tuning into Episode 2..... which was boring AF.

An amazing soundtrack.  echols108  5 star

This a dark and sometimes disturbing psychological thriller. The amazing sets and costuming is excellently done. I love the soundtrack and hope they eventually release it for purchase. The story is well cast with great actors. I'm excited to see how the story continues.
