Yet another high-quality series from HBO. They rarely put a foot wrong. The Night Of is an eight-part series that delves into the intricate story of a fictitious murder case in New York City. The series follows the police investigation and legal proceedings, all the while examining the criminal justice system and the purgatory of Rikers Island, where the accused (played brilliantly by Riz Ahmed) awaits his trial. It’s based on the BBC’s Criminal Justice. I’m only up to episode 2 and it’s already a seriously tense and addictive watch. Perfect casting and a potential community service announcement for sweet naive young men that are tempted by the beautiful yet troubled young woman. View the trailer. Get the series from iTunes or stream via Foxtel or HBO.
