The Night Of: Miniseries Reviews

  • Jul 09, 2020

    I think people are loving the fact that this series takes it's time, and are revelling in the fact that it's not ' obvious' i.e. relies on action/ plot twists. I watched 2 episodes and then jumped to the final one and I'm glad I did. It wasn't going anywhere and the tone of relentless downbeat seriousness that let you know that THIS IS A SERIOUS TV SHOW just bogged it down. 8 episodes? And the last one an hour and a half long? Come on writers, you needed an editor to cut the fat off this. I had the last 30 mins on x2 speed as I knew nothing would happen and was rewarded with painfully slow courtroom and prison scenes that added nothing. Oh except to tell you that this is SERIOUS and YOU NEED TO SEE ALL THIS. Save hours of your life and don't bother. This show is loved by people who will bore you about how intelligent they are but couldn't tell a worthy story from a bloated and glacially slow screenplay.

    Did the series try to save money with regular audio effects? It's such a great tv series but it's like to go on a cruise on a lifeboat

    It has been so many years passed that racism still exists in US!

    Un policial tan clásico como notable//////////////// Un joven estudiante estadounidense de origen paquistaní, Nasir Khan (un sobrio, ambiguo y contenido Riz Ahmed, cuya actuación le valió un Emmy) es detenido como sospechoso del asesinato de una joven en Nueva York. Toma el caso el detective Dennis Box (Bill Camp) tan sereno como implacable, y se hace cargo de la defensa el abogado Jack Stone (John Turturro). Un riguroso, oscuro, pausado, seco drama carcelario y judicial, donde asistimos a la implacable transformación del personaje central, los tejes y manejes de sus defensores, la comodidad de la institución policial y la procuración (una notable Jeannie Berlin como la imperturbable fiscal Weiss), sobre todo con los acusados no blancos, poco interesados en la verdad y la violencia del sistema carcelario, Temas nada originales, pero muy bien tratados y articulados. Turturro está magistral como un abogado frustrado (y por momentos entrañable) a la caza de casos en las comisarías, tratando de mantenerse sobre la línea de flotación, protagonista además de una sub trama dermatológica que es todo un hallazgo. Una admirable serie, que nos depara un muy buen final.

    A fair and thorough comment on the limita tations of the justice systeem, limited because it is run by broken, tainted people, who no longer believe in the system and are waiting for their pension check.

    Dark and anxiety inducing, The Night of is brilliantly crafted and will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final episode.
