THE CONSULTANT: SEASON ONE
Starring: Christoph Waltz, Nat Wolff, Brittany O’Grady, and Aimee Carrero
Creator: Tony Basgallop
Despite an unnervingly menacing performance from Christoph Waltz, The Consultant will give you narrative blue balls. The first episode is excellent, setting the stage for a mystery about who (or what) Waltz’s Regus Patoff is. With each passing episode, further questions are asked that excellently build the tension and mystery. It’s all very absorbing. However, the series doesn’t answer a single goddamn question posed, providing absolutely zero closure. It’s been a long time since I’ve been this angry and frustrated by an ending, and as the final credits rolled, the first thing out of my mouth was “fuck that damn show.” I stand by it.
