Clarice: Season 1 (2021)


Season 1
Clarice

Critics Consensus

Effectively grim, but narratively bland, Clarice is a disturbingly safe procedural that lets down both its talented cast and source material.

Audience Reviews for Clarice: Season 1

  • Apr 02, 2022
    I was skeptical in the early episodes as it felt a bit disjointed, like the story was kind of floundering. As it started to pick up half way through, the activism kicked in starting with the racial angle. I couldn't make it past episode 9 as the transgender victimhood narrative was being pushed alongside the racial victimhood narrative. I came to watch a crime thriller and instead got woke activism. What a waste of what could have been an incredible story line, and disrespect to the phenomenal story of SOTL.

    Was quite enjoying a good old fashioned murder hunt, but then the activism started, the "woman" hiding the Adams apple appeared, and it all became pointless

    Clarice is or rather was a mind-bending thriller that told the tale of Special Agent Clarice Starling's life in between the events of Silence of The Lambs and Hannibal. It was only on the air for a short time, because you didn't watch it! Why didn't people watch it, three reasons. One, it doesn't feature Hannibal Lechter in any way (input collective groan here). Two, it was continuous, rather than episonic, meaning the season followed a single story, rather than having Clarice do battle with a different psychopath every week. and Three, the producers of the film did a series about Hannibal Lechter a few years back, that was weird, confusing, and basically awful, but they weren't the ones behind Clarice. Clarice was the brain child of Star Trek producer, Alex Kurtzman, and for all intense and purposes, it was Silence of The Lambs. Everything from the location headers to the music and lighting were exactly the same. The story literally takes place weeks after the incident with Buffalo Bill, and had it been successful, would have finished with the events leading up to Hannibal. The story begins with Clarice (Rebecca Breeds) being assigned to join a new task force, created by now Attorney General, Ruth Martin. Many believe that the young agent isn't ready to be part of such a high profile task force, and she's only there because she saved the A.G.'s daughter. Their first case is to investigate the discovery of three woman found brutally murdered and dumped in a local river. The lead agent of the task force, Paul Krendler (Michael Cudlitz) sees the case as straight forward, there is another psychopath on the loose, but Clarice disagrees and goes off on her own to investigate. This show has serious Silence of The Lambs vibes. The producers have gone to great lengths to make everything specific to the time period and film, even Rebecca Breeds, the actress who plays Clarice, looks like Jodie Foster and has a similar accent. As for the story, it obviously had to be toned down somewhat for network television, but it is every bit as chilling, mind-bending, and creepy as the film was. At first, I had my doubts, because after all wasn't this series completely about Hannibal? One would think so, until seeing this show. Similar to the Netflix series, Mindhunter, the focus of Clarice is on the profilers and the people who hunt serial killers, the only difference being, that they are actively hunting killers. I loved this series, from character development to a story that turned out to be much more complex that it originally looked. In my opinion Clarice was a better sequel to Silence of The Lambs than Hannibal was. Odd when you consider the fact that Hannibal Lechter plays no part in it. Rebecca Breeds leaves her soap opera life behind and has a career defining role. It's too bad she was only a kid when Hannibal was made, because I'd take her over Julianne Moore in a heartbeat. The story was great, the cast was excellent, I really would have loved to see where the series went, and learned more about how Clarice went from being the wide eye naive agent to the jaded woman she became in the sequel, but as is often the case with network television, I guess I'll never know.

    It's an incredibly grueling showcase of a mind of madness. Loved it. Hoping for season 2!

    Clarice is playing a pivotal role struggling from the demons of PTSD, she's a young agent in the 90s set in a testosterone profession (more so at that time) and if you watch her character develop you'll see she will not be pushed around. Rebecca Breeds displays brilliantly her complex psychological makeup that comes from a challenging childhood which empowers her to begin to find her voice while working in a man's world, as well as escape the family secrets that have haunted her throughout her life. Other reviewers are asking where Hannibal is- but the show is called Clarice. It's about her, not him. Disregard the negative reviews this is a brilliantly filmed series which picks up straight after SOTL, the first episode gave us that rush of fear and well portrayed flashback moments, a must see

    Starts out pretty good but goes down hill by the end of the season. Writers/Director are more interested in pushing a narrative than making a watchable sequel series to The Silence of the Lambs.
  • Jul 29, 2021
    I've watched the first four episodes and have enjoyed them but it's a pretty familiar format. You get the " killer of the week" that they have to hunt down while her back story plays out in the background. Hoping the shows holds up as it goes.

    sem palavras prá maravilha que foi um dos melhores momentos da minha vida.
  • Jul 05, 2021
    No começo acreditei que não ia gostar tanto dessa série. Mas no decorrer vi um elenco incrível, atuações impressionantes, personagens que cativam muito rápido. Episódios bem sombrios no sentindo de você se surpreender com a capacidade humana em suas crueldades, dois pontos que colocaria como ruim na série era o tempo de lançar cada episódio a demora de um pro outro não era legal, e a indecisão de colocar episódios aleatórios de casos individuais ou uma investigação de um caso único para toda temporada. Mas fora isso,achei uma muito boa merecia uma continuação pena que talvez não tenha, adorei mesmo assim.
