News & Interviews for Clarice: Season 1
I think the network will have to work a little harder to find something unique to say outside of the crime of the week.
Despite its mimicry of the nightmarish visual vibe of Bryan Fuller's adaptation Hannibal, [Clarice] ... devotes itself too much to cramming the sprawling strangeness of this world into a tidy procedural.
It's a run-of-the-mill network creep show, more bland evidence of the franchise madness of contemporary entertainment.
In a television landscape littered with gruesome procedurals and compelling female protagonists, "Clarice" feels less like a trailblazer and more like a three-decades-later attempt to catch up.
"Clarice" feels like a cheap knockoff that squanders its source material.
It restricts a uniquely charismatic figure by placing her inside of a standard procedural, which is a shame because Clarice Starling isn't your average agent. In this show, on this network, she might as well be.
It remains to be seen if the show can pull off a completely new and interesting take on the character, but the fact that it has more going on than just being a killer of the week show has us hopeful.
These heavy themes seem to butt heads with the construct of a CBS procedural and end up being played out fairly chunkily.
I do see glimmers of hope in the slow start that leave me curious enough to keep watching, but not enough to pull me through the rest of the season if this pace keeps up much longer.
Creepy, suspenseful, and well-executed, the cast, crew, and creators on this offshoot of The Silence of the Lambs world have created a worthy world to investigate the origins of Clarice Starling.
Audience Reviews for Clarice: Season 1
17h agoThe show isn't awful, but it's definitely dreary and fairly lifeless. There's rarely anything in a scene to draw the viewer's eye in a positive way. The episode storylines are generic SVU-type scenarios, and the overarching storyline has been quite predictable so far. I'll keep watching via DVR because Rebecca Breeds and Devyn Tyler are WONDERFUL, but looking back on the first 3 episodes I'm not holding out much hope for the show as a whole.
1d agoRebecca Breeds delivers a quality performance however her character has been plucked from an amazing franchise and dropped into a boring crime procedural with no uniqueness amongst plots or characters whatsoever leaving it without an ounce of distinctiveness. While previous adaptations in the franchise (both Film and TV) possessed stunningly morbid visuals and tantalising writing in abundance Clarice fails to meet this expectation leaving it bereft of the artistry that makes the franchise so successful. However if you're without such expectations and enjoy generic CBS procedurals this will no doubt pass the time.
1d agoI find Clarice a entertaining new tv series for 2021 very intriguing......
2d agoCouldn't get into it. Seems very plain, not sure if it has potential to improve.
2d agoLove the show so far! Hold my attention from start to finish!! Love the actress playing Clarice...I think they chose perfectly!! Great storyline and believable acting all around!! Michael Cudlitz is amazing as he is in everything he does!!! So much better to watch than all the lame sitcoms that are on tv!! Thoroughly enjoy! A+++ from me!
2d agoSuch an Excellent show as well as an Exceptional cast & crew
2d agoI was very much looking forward to this show, but, unfortunately, it just doesn't deliver. At best, it feels like a run-of-the-mill procedural with a flat rendition of the Clarice Starling we know and love grafted on top. The exploration of her and Catherine's trauma feels heavy-handed and shallow, painted through cliches and lacking nuance. The actors seem to be doing the best they can, but much of the dialogue is cringe-worthy, and the weekly crimes feel like they'd be at home on any killer-of-the-week show. In addition, the attempts at artsy cinematography clash terrifically with the banal crime procedural vibe of the show, and feel awkward and contrived. I also take great issue with the ableism prevalent throughout the plot so far, and find the show's treatment and discussion of autism deplorable and a massive turn-off.
2d agoVery bland, nothing out of the usual stuff you would expect from CBS
2d agoThe concept had potential but with clunky, bland dialogue and a plot nowhere near worthy of the source material, Clarice is yet another police procedural on the trash pile.
2d agoDon't know what I expected but I did have high hopes for this show... have watched a few episodes now but won't be watching anymore Disappointed in it TBH.
