I was really excited for this show, but extremely disappointed by it. It had such potential but was wasted with not so great acting and weak plot lines. I'll be surprised if this makes it to a second season.

The Alienist is a period crime drama that follows a case somewhat like Jack the Ripper. The murderers victims on the other hand are young men that dress up as woman and who "work" for a living. The term alienist refers to experts who studied people suffering from mental illness were they thought to be alienated from their own true natures. The series follows a group led by psychologist (alienist) and a forensic caricaturist. that try and crack the case. The series is directed well, the time period is well recorded and the writing isn't terrible. The show is also quite slow and some characters were not cast very well... still watchable but not thrilling enough for my taste. A decent subject to be covered, just slightly didn't hit the mark with this one, watch at your own risk.
