Tv Season Info
When the protagonist is female, as she is in Netflix's binge-worthy crime noir Marcella, the drama at home can be nearly as intense as the murder mystery.
Complex, ultradark, and filled with more red herrings than an Agatha Christie novel, Marcella is a unique, powerful crime drama.
If it sometimes stumbled into cliché, there was ample compensation elsewhere.
Marcella is portrayed as both an excellent detective and a basket case in a way that doesn't add up (despite the past traumas that are introduced as explanations), and her blackouts feel like plot devices, there just to keep things mysterious.
