“Unorthodox” tells a good story effectively by delivering an honest and important message. The series is fairly short for a TV series and while I did feel like it missed an opportunity to explore some more things more in-depth, I very much enjoyed the story is presented. I really didn’t know who Shira Haas was before watching this show, but her performance here is worth noting. She creates a genuinely empathetic character who is likable and worth rooting for. I feel the story could have either been presented as a movie or a longer and more complex TV series. Nonetheless, the finished product is still a very solid and strongly acted miniseries that won’t take many sittings to get through and tells a fairly complete story.
