The Alienist follows Dr. Laszlo Kreizler (Brühl), a quirky and curt early psychologist who forces himself into an investigation of the brutal murder of a young male prostitute, which may be related to other killings. He dragoons his friend and illustrator John Moore (Evans, trading his Beauty and the Beast smarm for more of a sweet and bumbling ineptitude) into his investigation, and eventually Sara Howard (an all-grown-up Fanning), the police chief's secretary and the NYPD's first female employee. The team is filled out by investigative brothers Lucious and Marcus Isaacson (Matthew Shear and Douglas Smith). The series weaves in some real-world figures from the era, including J.P. Morgan and Teddy Roosevelt.

Watching it now.

Looks to me a rare television gem.

Sorry, forgot the link.

It's a redo of the premier episode tomorrow night.

I highly recommend watching it, it's on TNT.

I heard a critic discussing it on NPR, this morning. Let us know if it is good or if it's "not creative and, yet, not conventional enough."

(---That's what the NPR critic said.)

ETA: Also, the NPR critic guy had viewed the first two episodes.


I mean, obviously I found the NPR critic to be pretentious, insufferable, and he sounded like he had a big fat stick up his @ss...I really would rather hear your take before I commit to watch or not watch.

I liken it to "Taboo". That period piece starring Tom Hardy.

It is dark, gritty, authentic.

I've only seen the first episode, but I will watch it again!
