THE ESCAPE ARTIST - SEASON ONE The sheer quality of acting drew us into a superior legal thriller that got creepier and creepier until it threatened to spill over into gothic melodrama.

The Escape Artist is a British drama (mini-series) about a murder, a man, a consequence and judgment. The main character is a lawyer who never loses a case... one of his cases well... comes back to torment him. The story is legitimate, the actors are well cast but the depiction and execution of this series was not very good. Too many slow placement scenes, to much mystery where it wasn't needed and the show just didn't grab my attention.
