News & Interviews for Mr. Mercedes: Season 2
A nice slow simmer is well-suited to Gleeson's talents as an actor who doesn't mind taking his time in further molding a character with a gruff exterior and an old, buttered soul.
Mr. Mercedes may fumble a bit in the transition from hardboiled detective drama to supernatural sc-ifi, but the caliber of the performances and the commitment to character drama ensure that there's still plenty of reason to tune in.
It's these little touches, as much as the brilliantly realised and often violent set-pieces, that distinguish Mr Mercedes from most other dramas and that ensure I'll be keeping faith with it until Christmas time.
Whether it's because the actors feel a kinship when they get down to business or the writers get excited at the possibility of what Gleeson and Treadaway will do with their material is beside the point. They're electric.
Though it's not always successful in what it's attempting to do (a fact that's a little more apparent in season 2), Mr. Mercedes is nevertheless entertaining and driven by compelling performances that it's worth seeking out.
