Season 3.. What a waste of time..
31 October 2016 | by fastred3See all my reviews

I watched the first 2 seasons of The Fall and found it very riveting. I even recommended it to my elderly mom who loves crime dramas. Both of us were very excited about the release of Season 3 on Netflix just this past Saturday.

Rarely have I seen a series deteriorate so stunningly. The total thrust of the story was about the pursuit of a particularly sadistic and violent serial killer, Jamie Dornan, Fifty Shades of Gray. Gillian Anderson, Scully from X-Files, is the top cop in charge of the pursuit. Her character is smart has a very lively sex life. There was plenty of action, suspense and killing in Season 1 & 2... none of the above in Season 3.

I got so sick of all the talking, talking, talking that I started fast- forwarding through entire segments... 5 1/2 episodes of nothing.

I would recommend watching the first 2 seasons and leave it at that. Don't worry about the cliff-hanger ending of The 2nd season.. it's all a trick to get you to watch Season 3, in which nothing else really happens anyway.
