“I spent a lot of time around dead bodies…”
A Murder at the End of the World premiered on FX on Hulu on November 14th 2023 with its first two episodes. There will be seven episodes in total that will air weekly. The mystery limited series stars Emma Corrin, Clive Owen, Brit Marling, Harris Dickinson, and Alice Braga. Each episode runs for approximately 60-62 minutes.
A tech savvy amateur sleuth and true crime author, Darby Hart, gets invited to an exclusive retreat in a dazzling remote location by a billionaire, but things go horribly wrong for the invited guests when one of them ends up dead.
Here is the trailer:
A Murder at the End of the World is engrossing with a solid whodunnit mystery at its core. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…
Meet your new favorite amateur sleuth!
Darby reminds me of Lisbeth Salander from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in a lot of ways. She’s a little offbeat and has some hacker skills, but she still has a sizzling charm to her that lights up the screen. We’re getting a lot of character layers right off the bat and I’m confident that she’ll continue to show off her sleuth skills as the episodes continue.
The rest of the cast is fun as well and it’s always great seeing Clive Owen.
A fantastic location with lots of potential!
I’m not sure that I would sign up for a remote retreat in the middle of nowhere, but the hotel the guests are staying at is absolutely breathtaking and filled with unique technological advances. This modernizes the whodunnit approach in a clever way.
So far I’m really enjoying the mystery involved in both the past and the present and I can’t wait to unlock more.
I really love the whodunnit genre because it allows viewers to become active participants. With this series, I already have plenty of suspects and theories, but I can’t wait to see what Darby discovers next.
The episodes are on the long side…
This isn’t a major con at all, but you need to be prepared to devote a lot of time to this one. This is one of those shows where a minor detail can come into play later so be prepared to pay attention. There’s some excess fluff to sift through, but it’s not disrupting the pacing at all for me just yet.
So am I in or out?
I’m in 100 percent!!!
A modern whodunnit mystery with a captivating lead and a spectacular setting!
This series is everything I hoped for so far and I’m excited to continue my watch. If you enjoy whodunnit mysteries, I highly recommend checking this one out.
