That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update. The series explores complex themes -- alienation, the need for love, the human capacity for evil, etc. The central characters are complex and do what they do for complicated reasons, so there are no clear-cut "heroes" and "villains.

The show's first episode, "Night Work," is notable for how well-paced and confident it is, allowing us to bask in the show's atmosphere and beautiful but grotesque creations. And despite being a gripping hour of TV, the episode also tells us almost nothing about the show's plot going forward, revealing a bunch of mysteries, characters some, like Victor Frankenstein, from literature, and some, like Josh Hartnett's gunslinging Ethan Chandler, who aren't — at least not yet , and possible story threads. Here's everything you need to know about the series premiere:. Now that's what I call an intro. A young woman awakes from her bed, her child sleeping soundly. Everything is very slow and deliberate, she's totally fine, until, oh wait, she just got snatched by a monster through a window. In one short sequence that has absolutely nothing so far, at least to do with the show's plot, it established immediately a unique tone, setting, and visual style; and managed to deliver one hell of a jump scare to boot. Green plays Vanessa Ives, a character also not from any piece of literature who appears to be the partner of Timothy Dalton's Sir Malcolm Murray.
