News & Interviews for The Fall: Season 3
For all its psychological, almost literary complexity, it loses much of its narrative steam. It's that great 21st-century phenomenon: a show that's more fun to think about than it is to watch.
What was hard to watch became unworthy in Season 3, and that's a fall we simply can't bear.
Its hallmark traits of knife-edge tension, sexual discussion and psychologically-charged scenes have been posted missing, and replaced with an hour of medical procedures and jargon that would bore the most ardent of E.R. fans.
This is not how I imagined The Fall concluding... It's both futile and poetic, I suppose. And surprising -- I'll give creator and executive producer Allan Cubitt that.
This year's series has been the natural conclusion of the race to the bottom.
The Fall needed an actor who could play charming and wicked with equal panache, who could hold his own against Gillian Anderson. For all his talents, Dornan is not that actor.
Cubitt has found more to explore; perhaps six episodes is stretching it too far, but Anderson's magnificent, controlled performance is worth tuning in for again and again.
This show thinks it is Very Important Viewing, unmissable drama, televisual literature. The fact is it's very missable indeed.
Season 3 does a passable job ending the story, but you have to watch the other seasons first.
The Fall was back for another bout of sadistic psychological chess played out between Jamie Dornan and Gillian Anderson, subjecting viewers to its usual unbearable tension but in the opposite way we expected.
Audience Reviews for The Fall: Season 3
Dec 05, 2020Watch season 1 and 2. Forget season 3 exists. My god what a pile of steaming s**t 😵
Nov 15, 2020Just simply awful. Got to the end of season 2? STOP. Do not bother with this season, trust me on this one.
Sep 06, 2020Couldn't take this season seriously due to the laughable lack of procedure (and plain common sense) by the police in the hospital! Where do I start... putting a victim in the same ward as her attacker? Assigning a female nurse that exactly fits the profile type of his preferred victim? Failing to handcuff a suspected serial killer.to the bed or having armed officers directly outside the room - not only to protect him from attacking others, but also others from attacking him! I can forgive a certain amount of daftness in the pursuit of telling a good story, but this was way too distracting!
Aug 23, 2020I loved Season 1, enjoyed season 2 and hated Season 3. The whole season had enough material for 3 episodes at most and even then would have been tedious. In all 3 seasons Gillian Anderson is pretty annoying, coming as she does from the whispering school of acting but it's forgivable in the first two seasons because her one dimensional acting suits the character. In season 3 she might as well not have turned up. Trying to justify this as exploring the psychological aspects of serial killing doesn't work. Characters are introduced who go nowhere as does the season. God forbid there should be a season 4.
Aug 19, 2020The Fall series 3 continued from the first two series, and even though it fell slightly from its pure brilliance, the concluding series still left me very satisfied. At times it appeared that ideas had run out for the show, but with most loose ends being tied, it was impossible to not detract from the knife-edge suspense that this show had previously brought. A was not disappointed!
Aug 15, 2020Garbage waste of time, it should have been finished st the end of 2nd season. A lot of misconceptions regarding the penal system and it's faulty trial process, doesn't worth a minute this third season, it's a completely shame.
Aug 03, 2020It is not as good as the previous ones, but it has its moments and the narrative is more provocative then ever. Overall, it is a must see for those ones who like mystery series, like Hannibal. But not near as good as that masterpiece.
Jun 16, 2020The third season concludes the series in likewise excellent quality in atmosphere, production and performances and simply goes a bit more into depth on its characters; however, the actual ending is unexpected and rather illogical to what we have learnt so far.
Oct 10, 2019I loved all the Series of The Fall!
Sep 26, 2019Slow, poor story writing
