Game of Silence: Season 1 Reviews

June 14, 2018
Poor title choice aside, the reality showcased in the incoming drama is much more horrifying than anything a non-scripted series could provide. It's worth watching...

All of the actors are good; Mr. Raymond-James is scary good; and the story rips along at a brisk pace.

With a strong cast and moving characters, even a well-known story can still be compelling. It already feels like we're standing beside friends, not watching strangers, and that's more than many series eventually deliver, let alone pilot episodes.

Game of Silence dispenses with the depth that defines much of modern TV drama, and there is something liberating in that.

It's a decent followup to NBC's just-completed Shades of Blue and could easily appeal to viewers seeking casual viewing opportunities rather than a full-on binge-watching commitment.

Game of Silence is not going to win any Emmys, but the murder-mystery at the show's center is sufficiently intriguing to make you want to see the grown-up boys vindicated.

Game's dialogue is inconsequential, pushing the players around from scene to scene, but the plot payoffs come fast and furious.

This entry in the "avenging a dark incident from one's past" genre is competently written, acted, and plotted, if a bit cliched.
