A series about a boy who grows up with parents who only argue. Once he goes to school alone because his parents are arguing and the boy then goes missing. Overall, the series starts off reasonably well, but there are also some things in it that I never liked. Some things make you think, they should have left that out. Start strong. The middle is a bit weaker, but the ending is strong again. I was initially thinking of a 6, but the ending brought me to a 7. Nice for once.

Unfortunately, Benedict is unable to create anything credible here. It seems as if the storyline and/or the space he is given by the director get in the way of performance. In any case, he doesn't convince me.

The whole storyline is also just slow.

Unfortunately not worth watching for me (after having struggled through 5 episodes.

The good news is that the supporting roles are doing just fine.

Unfortunately, that doesn't outweigh the bad rest.

I thought it was a fascinating series. No top. And that was mainly because a lot happens in the series besides the disappearance and the search for Edgar. A little less would also have been nice. Quite ambitious. But possibly the author wanted to prevent it from becoming yet another "kidnapping series". It is set in 1985 and this can be seen in the slowness with which the search progresses. Fortunately, this is now a bit faster and more efficient. I always think it's great to create the street scene and decors in 2024 in such a way that, in this case, you imagine yourself in 1985. Probably CGI and old footage, but still....

The acting is okay. Benedict Cumberbatch succeeds in creating a very unsympathetic boozer. I also think McKinley Belcher III's acting is strong. Neat and somewhat respectable detective with a hidden private life, who survives in the NYPD macho culture with corruption and racism.

The ending is weak, tear-jerkingly melodramatic. That could have been better.
