SERVANT: SEASON THREE
Starring: Lauren Ambrose, Toby Kebbell, Nell Tiger Free, and Rupert Grint
Creator: Tony Basgallop
In its third season, Servant frustratingly refuses to provide any answers regarding the mysteries it has set up. It’s such a slow burn filled with repetitive plot points that it often feels like the story isn’t moving forward, which makes me nervous that it won’t stick the landing next season (the series’ final season). However, to its credit, the performances are solid, while the sinister, tension-filled atmosphere that was missing in season two has returned. But, even at its best, Servant is tone over narrative, which can make watching it feel like a chore. Let’s hope next season’s (series) finale makes it worth the effort.
