Tv Season Info

When a woman is found brutally killed, the clues surrounding her death connect to murders both past and present. Political corruption and shady business dealings are soon entwined with sinister crimes and occult practices. At the center of this web are two detectives, Molly McGee (played by Emma Booth, "Once Upon a Time") and Alex O'Connell (played by Ewen Leslie, "Top of the Lake") who share a tragic past. In a harrowing journey to find the truth, their fate is coerced by the ghosts of the unsettled dead that linger in the liminal space between life and death -- known as "The Gloaming."

Like Kettering, The Gloaming is bathed in frosty moonlight and ensconced in fog and haze.

Mar 26, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The Gloaming is a very good bet for an unusually intense and evocative thriller series... The first episode alone has more terrifying menace than anything I've seen in months.

Mar 19, 2021 | Full Review…

If you're looking for a solid and modern crime noir experience, The Gloaming is worth checking out.

Apr 5, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Not only does it have the moody tone of many stories from both genres, it's effectively set against the natural beauty of Tasmania, creating an interesting contrast between the lovely visuals and disturbing criminal activity.

Mar 26, 2021 | Full Review…

The photography is stunning to look at and the story is intriguing -- a promising start to this new crime drama.

Mar 22, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The Gloaming definitely has a sense of place, and we're so curious about the relationship between the two main characters, we'll keep watching.

Mar 22, 2021 | Full Review…

Gorgeousness more fitting for the Louvre than even the small screen of premium cable... Can be quite demanding as the narrative rarely matches the visual exquisiteness.

Audience Reviews for The Gloaming: Miniseries

  • 1d ago
    I see a lot of negative Audience reviews... I totally disagree with them apparently. I found this series impossible to stop watching. I was drawn in from the start with the dark foreboding imagery and the quiet building angst. I truly hope we see more. If you enjoy Supernatural Thrillers with deep roots in the realms of Black Spot, Dublin Murders and Equinox then you shall enjoy The Gloaming as much as I do.

    Little bits of flotsam keep coming to the surface.
  • Apr 26, 2021
    Soooooo Boring & at times nonsensical as to prove maddening at times to the point of "Media Psychosis". If this show was done by a more risk taking studio like HBO & Not Disney/ABC, perhaps it could've been saved it's current dour Rating of 20%
  • Apr 25, 2021
    Show is great but i wanna ruin the 100%
  • Apr 19, 2021
    The show is a hot mess. It crawls along at a pace that will tax anyone's patience. Four episodes in and still can't tell if it is a horror show or a police drama.
  • Apr 18, 2021
    Beautiful scenery doesn't compensate for this incredibly SLOW series populated with depressed, navel-gazing characters who play the same beats over and over again. The big reveal of the mystery at the end is just plain silly and does not reward the eight hours of slog.
  • Apr 14, 2021
    Quite boring. It's a murder mystery, not very original. I think it probably be more effective if it wasn't an Disney/ABC produced show. A little more violence, realism, goes a long way.
