An adaptation of a Margaret Atwood book, written and co-produced by Sarah Poley, great cast - my expectations were high. These are my thought on watching the first episode: Sarah Gadon's acting is a little stilted and although the dialogue is good, it's staccato delivery can rob it of its wealth. The production design is rather sparse, accentuating the bleakness of the piece, but the potential is there for some great storytelling. I give it a cautious 6 (fair) out of 10, [Crime, Drama] *****Upon finishing, I am leaving my rating as 6 (fair) out of 10. The ending left questions unanswered (unless the title itself is the answer), so, as to storytelling, the satisfaction of a mystery was flawed. As this is based on a true story the themes carry the burden of the piece: the defilement of the powerless, and those bleak tones resound in delivery, setting and production. The acting was disappointing with the exception of Zachary Levi and Paul Gross. It's always good to hear from Margaret Atwood and Sarah Poley, but curiosity sustained me to persevere to the end and satisfaction was deferred.****

The story is really interesting and I admire the original author but the show was kind of boring. At some points it had interesting kind of twists where you wanted to continue watching but otherwise it felt… flat somehow.

Really interesting show to watch. The story keeps you in the dark long enough, you start to develop your own theories but it isn't until the last episode that everything is 'revealed' and still there are some questions in the back of your head by the end of it. Beautifully told story, poetic even at times.

Having not read the book, 'Alias Grace,' by Margaret Atwood I can't comment on this show from an adaptation standpoint, however as a show it serves as a great retelling of the historic events of Grace Marks. The cast were well picked and although this serves as a slow burn we truly get to see Grace's development throughout the six episodes. I would definitely recommend this show to those who love a retelling of a lesser known true story.

A really interesting show, that depict the conditions of (white) women a few centuries ago and the behaviour of (white) men toward them. I really enjoyed the pace and the mystery that surrounds the main character.
[spoiler] I think something that the show did well is show the behaviour of men. Exc More
