IGN:
Paranoid: Season 1 Review

1 post in this topic

Note: this review discusses basic story and character details for Paranoid, now available on Netflix in the US, but avoids any major spoilers.

The only way Paranoid could be more of a cliched conspiracy thriller is if one of the characters actually uttered the line "This conspiracy goes all the way to the top!" It cycles through just about every other trope in the book over the course of its eight episodes. But even if the series did offer a compelling narrative, the thoroughly obnoxious cast of characters would still make slogging through those eight episodes a real chore.

A joint venture between UK network ITV and streaming juggernaut Netflix -- it aired in the UK earlier this fall before its recent debut on Netflix in other parts of the world -- Paranoid is a crime drama that unfolds simultaneously in the fictional British town of Woodmere and Dusseldorf, Germany. The series opens with a respected doctor being stabbed to death in broad daylight. This being a conspiracy thriller as well as a cop drama, it's not long before our plucky detective heroes discover that there's far more than meets the eye to this particular murder.
