In the Dark: Season 1 Reviews

April 4, 2019
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.

The show's entire treatment of blindness comes across as a regressive curiosity made all the more frustrating by the amount of time the show spends humiliating Murphy in the early episodes.

In the Dark, to its detriment, is so determined to mash up several cliches into one series that it has real trouble coming together as its own entity.

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

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

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

The drama is not without its merits, with an intriguing sub-plot that is actually quite gripping.
July 14, 2019
A crisp opener (of four) - pacy, thoughtful and skilfully constructed, with multiple strands I am eager to see twisted together again.
April 9, 2019
Sex, booze, and smoking in appealing but uneven dramedy.

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.

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

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.

In the Dark is a good show with a lot of promise, and it deserves to be seen and not buried, burned off, or overlooked.

Mattfeld delivers a nuanced performance as a woman who has chosen to meet the world with hostility as a calculated defense. No matter how middling the story, she's always worth watching.

In The Dark is a fascinating, mature turn for The CW that audiences should find a lot to like within. It's different but familiar at the same time, which is very hard to pull off for such a clearly defined network.
