Critic reviews for Night Finds You
There was just enough to keep us watching. The plot nudged an inch or two forward.
Great drama relies on the element of surprise, not false promises of it.
If the first episode was all brood, mood, and ideas of fatherhood, the beginning of "Night Finds You" had liftoff.
Last season the stakes were serious. ... This season, the mystery needs to be solved because...Vince Vaughn needs his money back. It's a race against time to make sure he can pay the double mortgage on his game room.
What works this time around is actually getting to the story and having the characters crash into it.
