News & Interviews for The Sister: Series 1
Sometimes there's nothing more enjoyable than watching a TV character's world fall completely apart, episode by episode, slowly and surely.
The Sister starts with an intriguing premise, but if it's not spinning its wheels, it's digging into its own grave with unrealistic choices, twists, and a frustrating flashback structure.
The Sister is far from a masterpiece, but never dumb... It's taut and gripping enough to beguile you for four hours of chilling fun.
As the catalyst of drama, Bob is a clever invention, and a frightening one. And he helps carry The Sister -- an imperfect but pleasantly unnerving piece of work -- over the line into worthwhile.
Uneven thriller has drugs, drinking, smoking, sex, murder.
If you are looking for a slow burn series that transforms into a blazing fire full of drama and edge-of-your-seat suspense, then this is the show for you.
I just wish this did more carve out its own identity, so it didn't just feel like another ephemeral show filling space a streamer's roster.
For the most part, these first two episodes work fairly well if you're willing to accept that this is a world that has a different relationship with logic than we do.
Far from being a ghost story, there's an ominousness to what's being told that helps lean further into the show's psychological state, elevating the material in the process.
We're giving The Sister a recommendation because we trust Neil Cross knows how to tease out the truth of the story without annoying viewers.
The Sister certainly does the part in offering a compelling psychological thriller. Though I think it would have fared better as a film, allowing some of the unnecessary filler to be removed.
Audience Reviews for The Sister: Series 1
Jan 23, 2021A hauntingly good show. Russell Tovey puts in a great performance.
Jan 23, 2021Main characters. The couple. He's absolutely terrible. She's just ok. The casting director should be schooled. I mean scolded. Bob even was pathetically overly unnecessarily creepy. Not Good.
