One reason to watch - Gillian Anderson. I think she is a brilliant actor and solely followed this show because of her. Of course, Jamie Dornan is an added bonus! The concept of a serial killer and a the detective who is chasing the serial killer to be attracted to each other is not a new concept. But it is very well written and directed. If you like suspense shows, I would say this is a 'must watch'!
There are many foreign show I like, but this one is horrible. Please cancel, or change the story line. Really, you would release a man that has killed all these women. Of course, the police a blamed for the criminal getting shot. Didn't have anything to do with the criminal seducing the man that shot him, wife. Not too different from the real world.
This show has an unexpected obsession appeal for me. I watched both the seasons by staying up all night: I just couldn't stop myself from watching the next episode! The story line is superb and the unique way this show portrayed the mindset of a serial killer is enlightening and eye-opening. A must watch for all those who like crime-based stories, however, it isn't for the faint-hearted. So beware!
Excellent! The story, the tone, the pace, the acting. I watched the first season before the bad 50 shades of Grey was released... fortunately. So, I didn't have any prejudice. Jamie Dornan is very good in the role, subtle and strong when he needs to be. And Gillian Anderson is for me a happy surprise, since I didn't watch X-Files. I normally watch all I can from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4. Good quality TV.
The Fall hasn't received nearly enough attention awards-wise if you ask me. It is about as dark as it gets and completely and utterly addictive. Jamie Dornan is bloody brilliant in the role of a serial killer but the real standout is Gillian Anderson, the fact that she hasn't been nominated for Emmys and Golden Globes is a real shame, because her performance is right up there Bryan Cranston in BB and Jon Hamm in MM, she really is that good. The writing is completely on point and the tension builds at the perfect pace. Best thing to come out of the UK in a long, long time.
amazing show. the cast is doing a great job. especiall jamie dornen who shows that he is more than just a pretty face. it is a great concept to follow a large case of two and soon to be three series. watching the drama unfold feels more realistic than a lot of other tv shows. also the ups and downs of the investigstion feels more realistic than in other shows.
and let it be said: the killer did not fall of the rails. he jumped of, head first while the drama developes.
a must watch! one of the best things out there.
