To many false starts, are a bad start
11 March 2019 | by eddiecatoneSee all my reviews

Being a big fan of both Eco's novel and Annaud's film I had been anticipating this series with the always likeable John Turturro.

The first episode started by hopping from location to location in an effort to create backstories for the main protagonists, and by the time we get to the Monastery where everything takes place, (and where good should be delivered), the story had already lost its initial spur. More flashbacks later on don't help and the murder-mistery plot ends up loosing the grip it might have had.

My judgment is partial as haven't watched the whole series (the last episodes are still to be aired), but I haven't been intrigued by it so far. Meanwhile I picked up the novel again and I'm looking forward to re live the suggestive atmosphere of J.J Annaud and Sean Connery's 1986 film version.
