    2 episodes in and this show is brutal. Weaver is once again Emmy worthy. She is a master of quiet performances.

    Based on the first two episodes, I know I’m never watching this again (in a good way). This is a VERY hard watch because of how disturbing it is.

    Starting out with a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes (consensus: “Heartbreaking and powerful, Unbelievable transcends familiar true-crime beats by shifting its gaze to survivors of abuse, telling their stories with grace and gravity”) and an 82 on Metacritic.

    I knew I was about to stan talent when the trailer came out. Can’t wait to watch this, especially with the reactions in this thread.

    Wever possibly gives my favorite performance of the year in any medium. She was incredible here. I would love to see her win lead actress and Dever win supporting (she is borderline as she gets less screen time later on). Collette was also fantastic and worthy of an Emmy nomination (in lead), but Wever absolutely stole the show for me. If this show does well, I wouldn’t mind seeing Marvel and Lange nominated, as they did quite well with their limited screen time.

    This is a fantastic series that deserves to be nominated across the board and it’ll be a shame if it isn’t remembered. A brilliant limited series.

    Started it last night and just now finished it. I mean…just wow. This really was the series of the year for me and got me to lean hard into my feels. That first episode ripped me apart, and I mean ripped. And the next episode was an amazing contrast in what really could happen if you had either a better police officer or a more understanding one and how it makes all the difference in the world. But that ending was such an amazing refresher and perfect in every way. “If the truth is inconvenient, they don’t believe it,” is the quote of the century.

    Dever really is a revelation and I’ll be upset if she doesn’t pull a Clarkson-style sweep at the Globes, CC, and, eventually, the Emmys. In regards to Collette, there’s just something about her presence on screen that just captures and brings you in, completely enamoring you as you’re watching her. Wever, as Dennis said, is potent, to say the least, and was so amazing in her subtleties. To be honest, I wouldn’t even be able to choose between the two leads (good luck with that Emmys). Overall, an amazing and brutal limited series and I’ll riot if anything else sweeps over it this upcoming season.

    Exceptional.
    I want this show to be swamped with prizes.
    Wever is… Beyond words.

    The first episode ignited a feeling I last recall while watching the first episode of The Night Of. An incredibly written and truly captivating crime/mystery/drama that is not afraid being stark and manages to be effective in its theme without being overt. The introduction of female detectives only made it better. I am yet to finish it, but it seems like it will be one of this year’s best. Netflix is on roll with true crime dramas hailing from women, first When They See Us and now this.

    This show is literally phenomenal and definitely ignites a rage. Wow, so good–I watched in one sitting. Merritt Weaver, Toni Collette, and Kaitlyn Dever (well, the entire cast) were exceptional.

    Merritt Weaver was truly on her A-game: she gave a nuanced, focused performance that left an impression. I still can’t believe from my early years of being a “Nurse Jackie” fan that Weaver has come so far. She’s THAT good here. She will be deserving of another Emmy win if nominated.

    I was worried about visibility for this one but it’s currently sitting at 3,700 votes on IMDB three days after it’s release, compared to Fosse/Verdon’s 2,500. Granted the latter may have had (somewhat) bigger names and industry-bait subject matter but nonetheless Unbelievable has the reviews and early viewership of a hit, Netflix needs to keep pushing
