Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Broadchurch [DVD] (DVD)
I didn't see this on TV when it was shown and bought it based on the reviews on Amazon. Oh Amazon reviewers are you real? Is this what you really do think about things? I asked myself after finishing the series. I have to agree that there were some good things - it was nice to see something based in the West Country that didn't revolve around something specifically rural, and the cast was good along with the scenery. However when you compare the series with what has come out of the USA lately and also The Killing you realise that it just didn't cut it. There was a whole lot of pointless and irrelevant content, along with what was in the end a fairly banal climax. The series didn't seem to build up any momentum, you certainly weren't gripping the arms of your chair by the end of each episode. I wouldn't rush to watch another series whilst I also couldn't say it was total rubbish either.
