“The Night Of” really grabbed me after the first episode. I thought as a whole this was a very well made mystery story. The show does choose to be ambiguous about a few things but is still very engaging nonetheless. Riz Ahmed and Jon Turturro give outstanding performances that make the series’ overall quality much higher. I think the miniseries format for the show works well, but I did feel it probably could have been told just as effectively with maybe slightly fewer episodes as some of the middle parts aren’t as impressive as the opening and the closing. The show explores some complex ideas which make it an interesting watch and I think murder mystery fans like myself should get a kick out of this very well put together story.
