News & Interviews for Falling Water: Season 1
The sole appeal upon which Falling Water relies is mystery, and I'll admit that after watching I do want to learn the answers to the questions the plot has posed. But I don't wish for the answers so much that I'll sit through another hour.
The idea of dream-traveling isn't new - see 1984's Dreamscape - but this is a good-looking and intriguing reworking of the premise.
Falling Water is a hollow puzzle box. It is a twisting, turning show that centers on dreams but completely loses the required balance of a series like this one: don't just present new questions, give us a few answers too.
The performances are solid and the production values also make the grade under the direction of show-runners Gale Anne Hurd (who spent a season on The Walking Dead) and Blake Masters (Brotherhood).
The only thing that's crystal clear is that this won't be a short trip, so it's up to a viewer to decide if the show is languorously absorbing or just painful slow... My not goes to painfully slow.
If you're feeling burned TV series after TV series that plants a central mystery and then dances around it for too long to sustain interest, proceed here with cautious optimism.
Intriguing but irritatingly opaque, this drama traffics in dreamy imagery and surreal plot developments that seem cobbled together from other mysteries.
We don't expect answers to the series' biggest questions yet, but we should at least know what the characters are striving for collectively and what's really at stake here. Otherwise, it's hard to really care about what happens each week.
The problem with Water is that it keeps promising revelations that are constantly withheld, as though we might not keep watching if the show tipped its hand about what all this dream investigation is really about.
There's a compelling TV show underneath its heavily stylized packaging, and if you have the patience to watch that play out then you will be rewarded.
So far, the tension has felt more tailored to give the illusion of stakes and mystery and gravitas rather than a filter for legitimate urgency.
Audience Reviews for Falling Water: Season 1
Jun 04, 2020It is one of the best series that can be seen at the moment. The narrative is very well plotted, and it travels through the dreamlike in a plot that links what happens in dreams with reality. I am surprised that "criticism" has not been able to appreciate it adequately.
May 31, 2020Entertaining. There are no gaps in it. Most of the events are carefully planned so that I can believe what's happening.
Jan 25, 2020This show is amazing, from the cast to the sets to tiny details in the environment to pacing. Nearly every episode ends with me thinking it was an amazing episode
Mar 18, 2019Another excellent example of a show the people likes but the critics hated. At this point I think we can pretty much ignore everything a professional critic says because they're mostly shilll souless, lying acks of human detritus. This was a solid series that suffered from poor marketing (more like non existant) and a saturated schedule.
Mar 14, 2018one of the best, but if ur looking for easy thing like teens stuff this isn't what u looking for cos it a bit puzzled and u have to put the pieces together like the Legion TV series
Jan 27, 2018Almost to the end of Season 1 and excited to see how it wraps up. Regardless, it's been a great ride. Not only are the leads great and the mood/atmosphere of the show eerily electric, but the ideas ... so well thought out! I would urge viewers to ignore the critics and give this a good shot. It's better than a lot of the shows and movies that examine dreams and what they might mean. The pacing can be slow, but it works and gives you some time to think about what you're seeing, which is so important when it comes to dreams. Don't most of us wish we could go into our dreams and spend a bit more time taking in the details?
Jan 25, 2018An incredibly original series that get side tracked a little but still has excellent cerebral depth. Fully deserves five stars.
Jan 18, 2018Watched the first 5 episodes of season one and it has been intriguing thus far.
Jan 07, 2018I generally agree with the critics on RT, but they got this one WAY wrong. Falling Water is one of the most unique and enjoyable series o the last few years. I encourage everyone (with any intellect) to give this series a shot.
Mar 13, 2017Falling Water attempted to impress with complexity and intrigue but churned out a poor show. Actors are good, so is camera work and production but the story and how it is delivered lacks imagination and convinction.
