The Outsider - Series Reivew

by iwantmycookies | created - 2 months ago | updated - 2 weeks ago | Public

Season rating - 8.0/10 Highlight episode - Roanoke MVP: Cynthia Erivo

Came out of the gate swinging with the first 2 episodes but never quite reached them heights after. I feel the amount of material covered there was a mistake and a lot more time could have been spent on the actual Terry Maitland character/investigation. I did enjoy the eerie, macabre atmosphere built up by the show - thanks to great camerawork and music - however, the end result led to a rather generic ending, which overall was disappointing due to the purposeful slow burn of the series.
