Ripper Street: Season 5 Reviews

  • May 24, 2021

    I'm really surprised it got such high ratings. It went way downhill from earlier seasons. It all felt very contrived and I'm very happy it's over. A huge letdown considering how great the show started. It turned into a soap opera and departed rather far from its roots as a show centered on investigations. The entire season centered around one as opposed to each episode covering a single investigation and the "outlaws" being pursued. I was disappointed to say the least. Sure, the original elements and parts were there but they failed to ignite.

    Short of Reed's wife's casting and her subpar everything, it's a great show!
