A Great Thriller...and ignore the haters!
2 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

This series is exactly the type of entertainment we're missing in today's "reality television" culture. The characters feel refreshingly honest in how they would react to the admittedly wild circumstances, but overall you can tell this was a passion project for the entire cast. Katic herself is a force and her character is easily empathized with throughout her journey...seriously just give the woman her Emmy already! As far as some of the negative reviews out there...let's just say it looks like some Fillion fans are still unjustly resentful and angry at Katic for the situation that went down last year. I say ignore the haters and, if you like thrillers, suspense, and films with deeper emotions and characters, then you'll love Absentia!
