I’ve been recapping THE ALIENIST over at The AV Club! (All recaps so far should be gathered under that header; if you’ve wanted to get caught up, now’s the time.)

It is a fascinating case study in adaptation (especially the pros and cons of adhering to the letter of the law), and it features, among other things, gorgeous sets and cinematography, three lead actors who are all pitching their performances to different iterations of the show, and occasional bursts of incredible weirdness that include one of the most sublime moments on TV this year: Sean Young silently looking to her dog for legal advice.
