January 2, 2020
Riviera so far is a mess of one-dimensional characters and a dialogue that is almost downright cliche at times.

Sky drama can do better than this.

Yes, it looks great but Riviera is overly serious, frequently implausible and not terribly memorable; in art terms, it feels like an expensive frame, plonked on a finger painting.

The writers are Neil Jordan and John Banville, and a mystery greater than the killing is how an Oscar-winner and a Booker prizewinner could come up with something quite so trashy.

There are an awful lot of good people in this shambles who must have forgotten how to know any better.

Looking like a bargain-basement Sharon Stone or a Britney (on a good day) lookalike - [Stiles] lacks the presence to make us follow her through nine more episodes as she discovers what a dirty, double-dealing scoundrel she married just one year ago.

Certainly there is more money than thought here. It smacks of TV made by too many people and designed to appeal to too many people, and it ends up appealing to no one.
