Year of the Rabbit: Season 1 Reviews

March 20, 2020
The best material subverts the crime and costume-drama genres and all of their clichés, like "Ripper Street" gone off its rocker. The pace is fast, and the language is gleefully profane.

The most surprising thing about the whole mad shebang was that it worked. It was really, really funny.

It may simply be a question of Year of the Rabbit finding its feet, for relationships between the characters to develop beyond the mere exchange of insults, and for the plot, which extends across the series, to take hold.
