Miss Ripley: Episode 1
Finally, the last of the May dramas premieres: Miss Ripley
opened today with solid 13.2% premiere that landed it in first place, above Baby-Faced Beauty
(11%) and Lie To Me
(10.6%). The show wasted no time diving into uber-melodramatic waters,
laying out its backstory speedily to bring us to the lie that sets
everything in motion.
I’m not sold on the drama yet, though, because while there are things
I like about it, there are also things that get on my nerves. Let’s
just say: writing and cast are fine so far, while the directing,
editing, and music are not mere irritants but positively drive me NUTS.
How the story builds on its premise tomorrow will probably decide
whether the upsides outweigh the flaws for me.
