News & Interviews for The Stranger: Season 1
With revelations dealt out like treats, actors of the quality of Stephen Rea and Jennifer Saunders in the cast, and pacing that is guaranteed to elevate your pulse rate, just try to watch one episode without being sucked in.
In elevating the emotional stakes to the same level as the conspiracy, Brocklehurst imbues "The Stranger" with a weight that stays with the viewer more effectively than all the other weekend crimetime options parading across TV schedules.
[Harlan] Coben is nobody's idea of a literary crime writer, but this briskly recounted, plot-driven saga about skeletons in suburban closets is not entirely lacking in psychological insight.
A clever, mystery thriller, that doesn't reveal its secrets until it absolutely has to.
If you're a fan of British mysteries and strong women, I can't recommend it highly enough.
The skillfull tying together of all the twisty knots is an all-enveloping and charged experience.
In lieu of a single, compelling premise, its mystery is a web of disparate threads, which not only makes it plot-heavy but prevents any real character development.
The notable performances by Siobhan Finneran and Richard Armitage... are the strongest pillar that make the series work, even though it doesn't fulfill all its expectations. [Full Review in Spanish]
Audience Reviews for The Stranger: Season 1
12h agoReally twisty, white knuckle suspense, and a blistering pace make for entertaining watching, but at the end the twists are a bit much, and the tying up of loose ends seems a bit rote. It was five stars all the way until the last episode and a half maybe. It is ultimately satisfying, but not a slam dunk. There is one ingredient that's a serious saving grace: the acting is superb. Brits are the best actors on the planet, hands down.
Jan 27, 2021Finally a thriller/mystery with answers and a good storyline. Great show highly recommend it.
Jan 23, 2021It was pretty good, and it will hold your attention, but it seems like they tried to cram to many plotlines into the show and when it came time to tied the storylines together, they rushed it and overlooked too much stuff. Alot of the plot holes have already been mentioned already, but the one that bugs me is, when she told him to get the DNA test on his boys, he never did, and then they just dropped the subject. He looked into everything she said except that? Wouldn't he want to know that more then his wife faking a pregnancy. Eh, whatever it was still pretty good overall.
Jan 21, 2021I was going to rate this 4 stars until the last two episodes. Several plot lines, some connecting to the main mystery, others seem randomly added to fill time. Writers thought of every possible plot line and then decided to keep them all. Good acting, strong character development, but the climax doesn't seem to tie in with the rest of the season. It's okay, something to kill 8 hours of your day.
Jan 12, 2021This show starts off with a bang and holds the pace, so it will keep your attention. The acting is good and there are several interesting story lines, and you are not quite sure until the end how they relate. But the ending is dark, disappointing, and kind of dumb.
Jan 10, 2021Potential spoilers. Ridiculous plot. Very disappointed about the number of times and the level of violence I saw against women in this show. I understand that this is part of the 'story', but it would be great to change things up a little and not just have women as part of the story to be murdered and abused. This normalizes it to some degree and that is not okay.
Jan 07, 2021If Corinne had just told Adam what was going on with the football club instead of being unnecessarily secretive, none of this would have happened. There was literally no reason for her to not say anything (to anyone). It is one of my biggest pet peeves in any story.
Dec 19, 2020It's good. Entertaining. Lots of twists. Some holes in the story but not bad.
Nov 26, 2020How to review this one. Storywise is okay, but the plot is unsurprising. The acting of some of the main actors could be improved. But overall, not a recommended series, perhaps ‘awful' is the better selection of word | follow us at @uncle.review
Oct 18, 2020The show tries to be funny at times but it just fails miserably and on top of that the plot is very predictable, boring, and just outright stupid while the premise of the show is okay they just didn't implement it well I really don't recommend watching this show unless you like being tortured.
