A series that certainly feels authentic -- surely a godsend for anyone who constantly tuts "unrealistic" at the TV -- but at times it is also extremely slow moving. If you have the patience, however, there is plenty of reward.
You'd just think a show about dangerous criminals, scandalous affairs and adorable pugs would be a bit more...exciting? But with mostly solid performances, this too-strange-to-be-true story is still worth checking out.
Escape At Dannemora could easily package itself as a stylish, well-pedigreed action tale and still be wildly entertaining -- and it's to the credit of [the filmmakers and actors] that it mines deeper, and more subtle terrain.
