Audience Reviews for Unbelievable: Season 1

  • Jul 27, 2021
    Perfect series! Thought I'd check it out real quick, ended up binging the entire series in one night, couldn't get to sleep otherwise. Absolutely brilliant, beautifully and accurately portrayed through different great multidimensional characters.
  • Jul 25, 2021
    Although not every story detail was addressed in the end, overall, Unbelievable draws to a satisfying conclusion. This extremely intriguing and suspenseful mystery is led by spectacular performances from Toni Collette, Kaitlyn Dever, and especially Merritt Wever who I thought was particularly outstanding! I would strongly recommend Unbelievable; just keep in mind that the subject matter is dark and potentially sensitive for some people.

    Magnificent. In 70 years of TV watching I don't remember seeing a better acted, scripted, cast and filmed series. Deserves all its plaudits and awards it has had. The actors actually looked, talked and behaved like real, ordinary people. Superb.

    Just WOW, this mini-tv show is a must-see!

    It feels relieving to finally see a crime series where the characters basically seem like real people and not superficial close to perfect stereotypes requiring certain and monotone types of actors. It also makes it so much easier to truly feel involved, and get some real empathy in their struggles or antipathy if they are the reason to the problems. And in Unbelievable there is lots of opportunity to be emotional on behalf of the characters, either way of the specter, about abuse on several levels, trust and distrust, professionalism and mental strenght. The conflicts are highly recognizable and the persons identifiable, though the portrayals occasionally stumble over a few bumps. However, it's very educational and nothing falls too hard and far out. It's always easy to get dragged back into a plot which is real and comprehendable. A very good and credible cast makes the most of it, but then there's also so much to act on and around, and the directions and cinematographic ideas, together with editing have obviously followed closely, as has also the rest of the visual and technical crew. Some moments are truly magic, and there are some not that convincing, but the plot is however brilliant and the total very close to perfect.

    Ok, we got the memo, men rape and basically, most of them in this series are a screw-up... Weird that it was the intern who actually gave the definitive lead to solve the case.
  • Mar 26, 2021
    The story of this series is very hard and realistic. It has very well written characters and manages to make us understand the trauma that Marie Adler has.
  • Feb 26, 2021
    Flawless acting, sharp writing, and a righteous sense of anger elevate this true-crime miniseries above most others.
  • Jan 21, 2021
    First show I've binge watched! Fantastic acting, well told story of a tragic story.
