Low Winter Sun Season 1 Review “Pilot”

AMC has built quite a reputation in the past few years, producing numerous critically-acclaimed series.The network has certainly had a few misses as well, but the arrival of a new original series from AMC is usually worth checking out. Enter Low Winter Sun, the network’s latest offering. The big question is whether or not the show lives up to the high standard set by previous efforts. Fortunately, there’s a lot to like in this pilot.

Right from the opening, it’s clear the show is going to focus as much on the characters as it does on the ongoing investigation of crooked cop Brennan McCann’s “suicide,” which is definitely a positive. The pilot quickly establishes Frank Agnew and Joe Geddes as very different characters brought together out of a shared desire to take out McCann. It’s clear that Agnew was more adamant about killing McCann out of his desire for revenge, but he seems less sure as the investigation begins. Geddes, meanwhile, is more worried about his own skin, with IA arriving to investigate McCann shortly before his body is found.
