I wanted to love this one. I really did. I found it while looking for new tv shows to watch on Apple TV before our subscription runs out. I quickly realized it would be one of those shows I struggled to watch until the end.
Some things happened at the very beginning of the series that confused me and forced me to go back and watch a second time. There were very predictable parts of the series and parts that dragged on so long that I had to force myself to continue watching.
The suspects start out as strangers and I was trying to figure out how they were connected. Had I not paid full attention, I would have missed the connection (as small as they were).
There were parts of the show that really weren’t done well. Without giving too much away, they are told to disguise themselves, and they basically look exactly the same. A little haircut, added glasses? I can’t understand how they thought that would make them look different enough not to be noticed. Plus, they already had fake passports, so how did the photos reflect their new “disguises?” It just seemed that the show had a lot of parts that they could have made so much better.
While I wasn’t expecting the ending, it left me disappointed and bored, waiting for the climax, which never seemed to arrive. Many of the storylines were left unfinished, but not in a way that I would want to watch a Season 2.
I give Suspicion on Apple TV 3.5 out of 5 stars.
