News & Interviews for Absentia: Season 1
The most intriguing moments in Absentia arise not from the whodunnit element but rather the sheer weirdness.
It had the joyless, self-serious texture of too many network shows about serial killers.
The troubling questions and terrific performances are enough to keep you following this murky trail, if you're not seriously burned out on serial killers.
Absentia's problem isn't its premise, which is no better or worse than your average gritty crime drama...Absentia so completely personifies the mundane procedural that it actually becomes awful.
Generic serial killer mystery wastes good lead performance.
