Boring. Its kind of like a bunch of modern day liberals living in the 19th century. Absolutely nothing but the costumes matches to the period.AGAIN. The show deals with how immigrants are mistreated, cops are dirty, religious people are bad, its perfectly natural for boys to wear dresses, blah, blah, blah...and whatever else. Can Hollywood EVER just tell a story, or a good mystery, or romance, without killing it with liberal talking points? Just once? Eventually people will just refuse to watch anything they make.

A difficult undertaking, turning Caleb Carr's gory Victorian-era novel into a watchable series was expertly handled by TNT. I loved the book and am relieved to see it translated to the screen in a sophisticated way. I really think this pilot surpasses the likes of Penny Dreadful in its refinement and subdued gloom.

I liked this episode, the casting is top notch, the wardrobe matches the era as well as the roughness of its times, so far it has a lot appeal and keeps the audience watching, I can see this getting better with time.

I stopped watching American Crime TV a long time ago and switched to Foreign Crime Series, mostly because of the unimaginative writing and bad acting but every once in a while the writers and directors surprise you and make a real gem. Right from the start the mood and atmosphere of the series reels you in...no better time period for a murder mystery than turn of the Century New York, no? I have already ordered Carr's first three books and cannot wait for more episodes! 5/5

It took me 10 minutes watching this before I realized that I had read the book like 20 years ago. Very good start to the series.

So far-so good, even though it's hard for me to see Dakota Fanning grown up and in a role like this. If anyone's interested, take a look at the Clive Owen two season series THE KNICK. As good if not better. And, as it turns out, the hefty and heavily Irish accented ambulance driver in the series happens to be the gentle and loving Toby in THIS IS US.

I love serial killer shows but this show is so utterly boring I can't do it, gave it a fair shot with two episodes I can't bring myself to try and sit through the third one. Obviously, everyone likes different things but this is too dry for my tastes if you enjoy a good snooze fest this is the one for you.

Very good. A mixture between Penny Dreadful and Sherlock Holmes...meaning, if you like fast paced, modern shows with lots of shooting and car chases-this is not a show for you.

The critics seem to like it so I kept watching to see why but half way through episode 4 I gave up. Nice buildings but I am bored with the conversations, characters and plot. There is some great tv at the moment so I will move on from this

Despite the mixed reviews , i'm going to give this a go. The trailer was promising. p;s I havent read the book , so excited to judge it as a show alone.

I find that I am enjoying the evolution of forensics and what has become modern day profiling presented here. I'm also enjoying the 'slow burn' as they try to unravel the why rather than the what as the main character describes his goal. Though there are "shades" of Red Dragon (part of the Hannibal story line) when it comes to the killer, I could (hopefully) be wrong on that score. Even if I'm correct it is still very interesting to follow the process in a well rendered past era of policing and the development of the tools of the trade to see how they come to a resolve. As others have noted, the depiction of this era, the people that lived during it and the actors portraying them are all very well done. Enjoy!
