Departure: Season 1 Reviews

September 28, 2020
All action, twists and propulsive pace, it's a great pulpy distraction.

There's enough competence in the writing early on to suggest that the series could live up to a cast that collectively is better than its IMDb credits. Unfortunately, the talent obscures what is ultimately a disaster in the making.

Just enough enticing elements to pique curiosity, but lacking the execution needed to actually be good.

There's lots about Departure that's really silly, but Panjabi and Plummer carry the series into the realm of respectability.

It's a solid choice for fans of procedurals, and a way to spend time with a talented bunch of actors.

Has its faults, but the mystery of who is responsible for the disappearance of a commercial flight has enough twists to make you never want to fly again.

This six-episode drama reminded me of 24 in all the best ways, as Archie Panjabi's investigation into a jetliner's vanishing leads to reveal after plot twist after red herring after conspiracy. It's one wild ride.

Departure is a smart thriller that keeps you engaged from start to finish. While there are a couple of issues, overall it is a compelling mystery.

A drama that will hook those who seek from their viewing a charge of adrenaline, if not always the most rigorously challenging of mysteries.
