Review: The Night Of Season 1 Episode 1 “The Beach”

Engrossing and authentic, this premiere episode is beautifully crafted and written, never dragging or losing its focus, even as it spends over an hour depicting the events of one night with every subtle detail captured through beautiful cinematography and direction, I was tense and aware throughout my viewing experience as I found myself consistently yelling at the characters, questioning and judging their every move, with my own suspicions and thoughts, a testament to the magnificent writing and flawless performances. ‘The Night Of’ grasped my attention like few pilots have before, a riveting crime story that is able to raise a number of issues about the justice system and its view of race in a way that is not overly suffocating or forced, but true, honest and balanced. 10/10
