      Previous Donal Lynch Sunday Independent (Ireland) The sights and sounds aren’t quite enough to save this overlong script and despite its lofty ambitions, and sleek surfaces, A Nearly Normal Family is only nearly good. Feb 5, 2024 Full Review Dustin Rowles Pajiba It is marginally better than mediocre, but it’s also a quick binge Dec 13, 2023 Full Review Tatat Bunnag Bangkok Post A Nearly Normal Family offers glimpses of promise but is hindered by pacing issues and unresolved sub-plots. Dec 1, 2023 Full Review Marty Brown Common Sense Media A Nearly Normal Family depicts a somewhat compelling mystery, but, depending on the viewer, its central flaw might be tough to look past. 3/5 Nov 30, 2023 Full Review Joel Keller Decider While it progresses a bit slowly, we appreciate the storytelling structure of A Nearly Normal Family, which should reduce the chances of eye-rolling plot points and red herrings as we get closer to finding out what really happened. Nov 28, 2023 Full Review Jonathon Wilson Ready Steady Cut Look, it’s not winning any awards. But truthfully it doesn’t need to, since this is exactly the kind of weekend binge it’s claiming to be and has no aspirations of being anything else. 3.5/5 Nov 25, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews Next

      Previous Robert M Si re dejas asombrar por la serie te la vas a pasar bien, aunque un poco predecible en varios puntos de la trama. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/11/24 Full Review Volodymyr T Repetitive scenes. No logic in movie. Story itself takes 30 mins but they decided to go with 6 series. One of the worst thing I ever seen Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/05/24 Full Review Santiago B It's a mini-series worth watching. Although you can anticipate some things, there are others that surprise you and keep watching the series. The performances are very good, especially from Alexandra Karlsson and her ability to change and adapt to each scene. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/16/23 Full Review Debbie B Compelling series that almost gets dragged down by lazy police work. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/15/23 Full Review Richard G Very overrated. It's a totally standard procedural with no twists or turns and an unbelievable plot. The procedural elements don't make sense. The pacing is boring and frustrating. I had to skim the end. Its well acted though, reasonable cinematography, score is ok but nothing special, the editing is nothing special, script is weak. Compared to something like the snow queen this is second rate trash. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/14/23 Full Review Andy J Unconvincing plot. Absolutely zero input from the police side of the investigation. Inspector Clousseau could have done a better job. What happened to forensic evidence from the apartment? How was Stella's entry via the loft not noticed? The trial itself was a joke. Would have taken about 3 weeks in England.
