Falling Water - S01 E03

Sci-Fi . Sci-Fi & Fantasy . Mystery . Drama

mind-bending drama, Falling Water is the story of three unrelated people, who slowly realize that they are dreaming separate parts of a single common dream. Each of them is on a mysterious and highly personal quest — one is searching for his missing girlfriend, one is searching for a lost child, one is looking to cure his catatonic mother — and it is the clues found in their collective dream that come to guide them. The deeper they dig, though, the more they come to realize that their missions touch on stakes that are much larger than their individual agendas. That the visions found in their common dream just might hold the key to the fate of the world.

    By the end of the first episode you have little idea what’s going on; by the end of the fourth show the series is starting to gel a bit, but questions have been piled upon questions and soooo many characters have been introduced you need a scorecard.

    What if nothing ends up coming together? Although there are some signs of that, Falling Water also can be maddeningly inexplicable and perhaps not worth a long-term investment. So far, my interest has ebbed and flowed.

    After the four episodes made available for advance viewing, things were clarifying somewhat and an addictive quality was emerging, but not everyone may get that far.

    Falling Water feels ambitious and maybe even a little pretentious, but we’ll see if it ends up earning a full season of viewer attention.

  • Hank Stuever

    The only thing that’s crystal clear is that this won’t be a short trip, so it’s up to a viewer to decide if the show is languorously absorbing or just painfully slow. Two episodes in, my vote goes to painfully slow, while certain others may be tantalized by Falling Water’s many secrets.

  • Scott D. Pierce

    There's something going on here. What it is is completely unclear in the first episode.

    The Salt Lake Tribune Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    The elements for a very good show are all in place but the show keeps getting in its own way.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Rob Lowman

    The mystery along with its intriguing premise might have been enough, but the main problem with the show is the slow pacing. It’s easy to drift.

    Dazzlingly shot and intriguingly cast. ... After four episodes, I'm thinking this ponderous, pretentious thriller asks too much of us with too little immediate reward. [10-23 Oct 2016, p.19]

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Spencer Kornhaber

    Promising a web of Jungian symbolism, Lynchian surrealism, and Abrams-y subterfuge, but nearly no compelling characters, little narrative cohesion, and blah cinematographic vision, it represents the preposterous pinnacle for the if-you-confuse-them-they-will-come trend.

    The Atlantic Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    The problem with Water is that it keeps promising revelations that are constantly withheld, as though we might not keep watching if the show tipped its hand about what all this dream investigation is really about.

    Perhaps, if one took copious notes, consulted the show website’s “About” page, and discussed each element thoroughly in a subReddit, the convolutions in Falling Water would yield rewards. As it is, it’s hard to imagine finding the time for this dull, plodding thought experiment.

    Variety Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    The blunt truth is that there’s a major difference between complicated and cluttered. Falling Water thinks it’s the former but it’s really the latter, a show that throws so many ideas and references (it recalls “Heroes” as well as the cult classic “Dreamscape,” along with “Inception,” of course) against the wall in hopes to keep you numb to the fact that there’s not much going on.

    Most bad shows are bad because their creators have no imagination and make obvious choices. Falling Water is bad because its creators have attempted something very complicated but failed to ground it in any credible way. They’re in way over their heads.
