What a fantastic beginning. The tension that is held throughout the episode is awesome.
I underestimated the pilot episode, wasn't expecting it to be as riveting but it's actually pretty solid.
when I started watching the first episode I kind of thought where is this going, but after watching 40 minutes I was hooked! I'm excited for the next episode, I love the show, I love the characters and how its directed. 10/10
This show seems to be a copy of the first season of the show it's based on in the UK — "Criminal Justice" (2008): https://trakt.tv/shows/criminal-justice
My wife and I loved the BBC version. It had two seasons. We tried watching "The Night Of", but it was too similar (almost exactly the same) to the original that we stopped, because it was boring. We already knew what was going to happen. It's a shame HBO couldn't write a new story as if to be a third season of "Criminal Justice". I definitely recommend "Criminal Justice" over "The Night Of".
I LOVE how satisfying the tv could be when it's this good!
After finishing the first season, I insanely love the show. I enjoyed every second of the show. what a clever title and opening. And John Tuttorro, what a amazing performance.
