*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“You’re making a mistake…”

Blood Sisters premiered on May 5th 2022 on Netflix. There are four episodes in total available to stream now. The Nigerian crime thriller series stars Ini Dima-Okanlawon and Nancy Isime. Each episode runs for approximately 58 minutes.

Best friends Sarah and Kemi end up on the run after they make a fatal mistake at Sarah’s engagement party.

Here is the trailer:

Blood Sisters has plenty of thrilling moments mixed in with a story about two friends who will do anything for one another, but is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

A believable friendship.

This series wouldn’t work without this friendship and I thought both actresses did a very good job with their portrayals. There were a lot of horrifying moments revealed in this series, but we also witnessed the power of love and friendship as well and I think this was the strongest part of the series thanks to these two leading ladies.

Starts off with a bang.

The opening episode really drew me in. We knew things were going to escalate quickly, but there were a lot of other layers and missing pieces thrown into the mix that grabbed my attention. The pacing wavered throughout the series, but the opening episode had a solid hook and made me want to explore things that much more.

The Cons:

Really melodramatic at times…

This series had the potential to follow in the footsteps of Ozark and other crime thrillers, but the melodrama was a bit much at times. I don’t think it ruined the show by any means, but some moments were really over-the-top and silly.

So am I in or out?

I’m in about 75 percent…

If you’re looking for a quick binge-watch for the weekend, you’re in the right place. I got through this series very quickly even with the slow burn pacing style. The first episode was really strong and I enjoyed the series overall, but be prepared for some serious melodrama thrown into the mix.
