In the Dark: Season 1 (2019)


Season 1
In the Dark

Critics Consensus

Perry Mattfeld is compelling as an amateur sleuth In the Dark, although the series' recycling of mystery tropes and questionable treatment of physical handicaps may leave some viewers with a dim impression.

Critic Reviews for In the Dark Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

It remains to be seen, so to speak, whether In the Dark will play itself out in a single season or find other ways to extend beyond that. The show's creative team, so far have put together a show that's surprisingly and bracingly watchable.

So crushing, and shocking, when the show reveals...the person who killed Murphy...

Jul 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Good actors like these can only do so much with muddled, unsatisfying plots and thin characterisation.

Jul 13, 2019 | Full Review…

It's welcome to see a blind person who is not a saint.

Jul 13, 2019 | Full Review…

A crime and a detective that both need to be solved.

Jul 13, 2019 | Full Review…

The drama is not without its merits, with an intriguing sub-plot that is actually quite gripping.

Jul 13, 2019 | Full Review…

To be honest, it's a bullet well missed as there isn't anything to see here to begin with.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Sex, booze, and smoking in appealing but uneven dramedy.

Apr 9, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

This is the best new pilot that The CW has offered in awhile, but it's still a mess tonally. Hopefully it'll find its stride in future episodes.

Apr 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Among a slew of superhero shows, soapy dramas, and supernatural flair, In The Dark is the most grounded in reality of the network's entire roster of dramas.

    Unlike a few of the reviews, I found the issues of the blind interesting. I also found the relationships believable and most important, I cared about the characters

    Obsessed. Well thought out. Shows so many sides of life. Great acting.

    The main characters destructive & selfish behavior was awful. I was waiting to see if a light bulb would surface in her head where she would allow those who loved & cared for to help. She's a constant victim. Sorry I wasted my time watching this show, had to see it through to find out who killed Tyson. Very lazy writing. But, I understand wanting to do something a little differently. Just wasn't for me. Also, I'm a huge animal lover, so to see this character not have love for her dog upset me.

    Dear Miss Mattfeld, I am A 66-year-old man. I recently retired from a major U.S. airline after 30 plus years of service. Now living in the city of Saint George in the state of Utah. A clean, warm, and beautiful place to live. After working for an airline and having the ability to travel the world for most of my life, I hear all the time how lucky I am. But Miss Mattfeld what thrills me even more than that is a great movie or series. One that I relate to the feelings of characters. So when I retired and moved to Saint George I bought me a big ass TV and some fat power recliners to sit and watch some great acting. Miss Mattfeld, it is me I am the guy that you try to please with your talent and hard work to develop the character you created. So after the director and for sure after the critics, I am the one you do it for, the end viewer. I will decide if you have painted a Master Piece or not. After recently sitting down to watch " In The Dark " watching just one more episode before I go to bed a dozen times in a row. Two days later with no sleep, I could finally lay my head down. Only to wake with Murphy on my mind. For me, that is when I know that I have witnessed a great performance. Yours so much so that I was compelled to pen this letter. Something I have not done before. And so Miss Mattfeld I am looking forward to your next project with anxious anticipation. Thank you so much for two days of great entertainment.

    I found "In The Dark" to be an interesting story about a complicated blind woman who is determined to find out the truth regarding her best friend's disappearance (and possible murder). With 13 episodes, it's a relatively fast watch. I wont give away the specifics of the story but, suffice to say, there are enough twists and turns to keep me coming back. The mystery of what happened to Tyson is much bigger than ya think. And Murphy and seeing eye dog Pretzel get into some pretty harrowing situations. The show has already been renewed for a season 2 so we know Murphy's story wont end here.
