TV: The Shadow Line, Episode Five

No spoilers ahead.

Before I saw this, I was thinking about it. I thought I knew where it would go.

It didn’t go that way at all!

The shape of this looks like it’s finally coming together, but I don’t think all the dominoes have been brought out yet. And there’s probably a monkey wrench waiting in the wings too.

Blick’s visual and editing synchrony is giving me eyegasms. I haven’t seen this done since the heyday of 1960s British TV, when Robert Fuest, Roy Ward Baker, Alan Patillo, and all the rest from that era were directing.

Two more episodes to go.
