Marcella, Episode Four

Marcellas01e040017

Something unusual …

according to Wikipedia (which I had to refer to since Team O screwed up and continues to screw up, leaving out the closing credits), the first three episodes were directed by Charles Martin. Now a new director …

… who also gets an opening credit — unlike Martin — and before the writers:

And with this episode, 99.9% of the aerial shots have been banished, making it feel a hell of a lot less like a mimic of Forbrydelsen.

And this director also goes for the non-obvious shot so many times that it’s distinctive:

Marcellas01e040158

Marcellas01e040171

Marcellas01e040183

Marcellas01e040199

This shot is incredible:

Marcellas01e040244

Marcellas01e040245

Marcellas01e040266

With the new director, there’s a bit more liveliness in the way the story is told.

There are also several significant twists that make me wonder just what the hell is going on too.

It doesn’t have the adrenaline-pump of Forbrydelsen nor the suspense of Cordon, but it’s kept me interested enough to want to continue.
