I can understand why one might think Fatal Attraction needed an update. Though still far from perfect, so much since 1987 has changed regarding men’s behavior in the workplace, as well as the way society views women in general, that there are new avenues genuinely worth exploring. Sadly, this remake doesn’t seem drawn to that. The series isn’t entirely uninteresting, with the addition of a murder investigation and redemption arc used to stretch the 119-minute movie to eight, hour-long episodes, but it doesn’t add anything noteworthy either…unless you count the double-reveal finale that is so laughably random that it ruins any goodwill the series had earned.
