“You’re gonna catch a serial killer…”
Ragdoll originally premiered on AMC+ back in November 2021 but AMC is now airing the six episodes weekly following Killing Eve. The first episode dropped on February 28th 2022. The crime thriller series stars Lucy Hale, Henry Lloyd-Hughes and Thalissa Teixeira. Each episode runs for approximately 45-52 minutes.
A game of cat and mouse begins between a troubled cop and a serial killer with a sadistic eye for detail.
Here is the trailer:
Ragdoll has a Killing Eve style that works to its advantage, but is the plot strong enough to keep viewers coming back for more? Let’s find out…
Good dynamic between characters.
I love Lucy Hale and she is probably the main reason why I tuned into this one. So far her character seems interesting enough and there is also some really great dark humor between the other main characters, which helps lightens the mood a great deal. The crimes we witness are truly horrifying but I’ve seen a lot of series like this before so I think it’s smart that there are decent character layers and fun banter to keep viewers intrigued.
Stylish visual effects.
The series is brought to us from the same production company that made Killing Eve and that should come as no surprise. I immediately got that type of vibe when I started watching and the network was smart to air these episodes right after Killing Eve to bring in a new audience.
I’ve seen this plot before…
The pacing and plot need some work so far. I think there is enough potential to keep me coming back for more, but there was also a lot of set-up, which slowed down the overall pace for me. I’m confident that things will pick up steam over the six episodes but I don’t want this to fall into the generic crime thriller category because it has a great cast and a dark quality that I really like.
So am I in or out?
I’m in about 75 percent…
Lucy Hale is always worth a watch and I think that there is a lot of potential here, but I’m hoping that the plot picks up steam soon so that I don’t lose interest.
Either way, I’d recommend checking it out after Killing Eve if you enjoy crime thrillers.
