Dancing on the Edge: Season 1 (2013)


Critic Consensus: Visually resplendent but occasionally pretentious, Dancing on the Edge benefits from a first-rate cast and a terrific 1930s jazz soundtrack.

The five episodes... are brimming with twists, surprises, delightful set pieces - and some very unexpected performances.

The story has ample pulling power. But the music is its driving force -- all day and all of the night.

Many of the people we meet in the cast are good guys, which gives Dancing a hopeful tone, even when the odds go the other way. We want the folks who deserve it to win, and so does the show.

What's missing is passion, joy and (ultimately) interest.

An exquisitely mounted miniseries about the interplay between a black jazz band and the upper crust of English society in the 1930s.

It's the rare TV series that's a feast for the ears.

The rest of it is good enough that I can overlook that bit of lazy screenwriting.

Really, I challenge you to find one bad performance in the miniseries because frankly there are none.

This show doesn't dance - on the edge, or anywhere else. Instead, it lumbers straight into the tar pit.

Oct 24, 2013 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Dancing on the Edge is a thing of beauty to watch, as the scenes of noirish late-night jazz discoveries in 1930s England are so wonderful to behold.
