CGiii Comment

When the writing is this bad...the acting is compromised from the very start.

'Compromised' is a gentle way of putting it...the acting is grim, especially JoJo & his clan...and - love him as much as we do - Michael C. Hall's accent is something else...he never quite sells his character as a surgeon...with his Dick Van Dyke-ish articulation!

Accents aside...Safe has a bigger problen: The story. A 15 year old girl disappears - no, she runs away - for, as it turns out, no apparent reason whatsoever. Mayhem and murder ensues in what can only be described as the unsafest gated community known to mankind.

Michael C. Hall plays super-sleuth [with his gay best friend in tow] upstaging the police at every opportunity...the twists and turns come aplenty. As to their plausibility...well, a major suspension of your disbelief will help enormously!

The conclusion...well, the writers threw everything at it, including the kitchen sink...what a mess!


The(ir) Blurb...

After his daughter goes missing, a widower begins uncovering the dark secrets of the people closest to him.
