I found the first series to be fairly engrossing if a slightly mediocre affair. I enjoy police/psychological thrillers and particularly British ones ie Cracker, Prime Suspect, Trial And Retribution etc and was looking forward to this considering all the hype.
It's certainly watchable and of course the premise is interesting but it's let down by a few things in my opinion.
Firstly in series 1 you get very litthe insight into Paul Spector psyche. Yes, we recommend introduced to him a serial killer who's living a seemingly normal fairly mundane life with a career and family but his character comes across as extremely flat. We see him early on commit heinous acts and carry on as normal as I suppose he d manage to do being a psychoath with no sense of conscience but he just seems very two dimensional. Given that we know who the killer is from the outset this would seem to be the perfect opportunity to give his character some depth. What drives him to kill, how does he view the women who's lives he takes. How does he view the authorities that are trying to apprehend him and most importantly how does he view himself. Very little insight is given into this in series one.
My second major criticism is Stella Gibson's remarkably dry and unsympathetic character almost completely bereft of personality. Instead of bothering to pad out her character the writers have rather given her a penchant for sleeping aroundo with any man she fancies at a moments notice. It's not only that I didn't much care for her as much as she really bored me.Read more ›
Jamie Dornan and Gillian Anderson are compelling to watch, supported by a brilliant cast of equally talented actors.
With twists and turns at in every episode, its simply the best piece of tv I've seen in years.

Love is slowly losing your mind over how sexy Gillian Anderson is.
I really liked the first season but it's not something you watch with family. It's scary to realise there are people who are this sickPublished 5 months ago by mavis
