British TV series “Five” is a great example of quality storytelling. The wide scope of the narrative (the film takes place within several tens of years) allows to collect a full history of the emotional tribulations of the characters.
Intrigue here as the standard for the detective, Yes sweetwhat also a powerful dramatic element. Its intensity at the end of the first season allowed the creators to offer viewers the ending, which is a genuine exultation.
Baby Jesse followed his older brother and his friends. The discrepancy between the understanding of the leisure time activities of adolescents and 8-year-old child was quickly found, and Jesse is sent home, where he never got.
20 years later, this story haunts my brother Jesse and his friends. Don’t add it and DNA Jesse, discovered on the site of the murder of a woman.
Proper disclosure of the characters, the development of the drama, which seamlessly interacts with a detective suspense and fuels the latter, not escaped from the eyes of critics. The series has a score of 7.7 score on IMDb and 92% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics praised the series for the perfectly chosen setting. “The style is in keeping with both the spirit of the event and the nature of most of the characters,” says the Explorer on Movie Rewind. To Harlan Coben — the Creator of the series, pay tribute and the author’s approach to heighten the suspense: “He slowly and with many branches makes the facts. All seems suspicious. What has been taken for the tip, turns out to be meaningless, there is a new murder with DNA evidence of Jesse in the place of its Commission. The characters and the causal relationships are added as you progress episodes,” writes Virginia Debolt in his review on Old Ain’t Dead.
Of course, the success of the first season encouraged the creators to run continue. Channel Sky 1 has announced the extension of the series under the new name “Four.” The Hollywood reporter says that it will be “a scary story about a family idyll, irrevocably torn riddles, lies, suspicions and false naivety”. Obviously, the show will be performed in a unique kalinovskoj style, but will get a new plot. Coben himself declares that though he is infinitely proud that he managed to achieve with The Five, but he believes this story is finished: “I never wanted to do a sequel for The Five. This story is already told but told in order to give birth to something fresh and bring on the screens of a completely new detective drama”. On the possibility of inclusion in the new story characters from The Five Koban expressed more categorically: “I would think about it and force to do it, but I don’t want anything to do only to receive the cheque”.
It is worth noting that in Sky 1 do not exclude the possibility of extending cooperation with Coben and paintings such as The Three, The Two and The One. Fans can only hope that the reduction of numerals in the title will not lead to the demise of quality TV series.
