Seriensichtung „Black“

Hier sah ich die Pilotfolge.

Black is the story of a grim reaper who is forced to track down his fugitive partner. In the process, he uncovers the truth about a series of cold case murders from 20 years ago. Investigating the murders complicates the reaper’s primary role of guiding the deceased to their respective afterlife, especially after he falls in love with a mortal woman – which leads him to break supernatural rules against involvement in human affairs.“ (Quelle)

Wie sagt schon Agnes Alpuerto so schön: „The actors are physically gorgeous; cinematography is superb; showcasing of wealth is well established; arguments between lovers are cute. And it is evident how the production team tried to be more than just that.“ BUT! B U T !!! Letztlich leidet die Serie (in meinen Augen) wie so viele ihrer Counterparts unter der seltsamen Tonalität, die sich zwischen Slapstick und Melodram nicht entscheiden kann.
