'Dublin Murders' leave UK viewers confused, will US fans have better luck?
'Dublin Murders', a joint venture of BBC and Starz, premiered on BBC One on October 14, 2019 and the British fans of the show have seen all of the series as of now.
Starz premiered its most-anticipated crime mystery drama 'Dublin Murders' on November 10 and fans are already hooked.
The weekly series has set the stage for one of the creepiest, nail-bitingly mysterious show of the season and as soon as the first episode was over, we were left with a bunch of questions that, hopefully, the show will answer over the course of the next seven episodes. However, the tweets from our British counterparts have us doubting these high expectations.
'Dublin Murders', which is a joint venture of BBC and Starz, premiered on BBC One on October 14, 2019, and the British fans of the show have seen all of the series as of now. And, they have been quite vocal about their thoughts. The collective emotion experienced by the fans seems to be frustration, especially since they believe that there has been no pay off for the eight hours (approximately) they invested in the show. There are many questions still left unanswered, and many plot lines that don't seem to have been explored fully.
"Just watched this series and to be honest it was very confusing and a bit what's going on! The ending didn't clear up all the loose ends either. #DublinMurders", writes one fan, while another tweets, "I'm going to the woods meself to find out wtf happened to Peter and jamie . Watched 8 episodes and still have no fuckin idea what's going on #DublinMurders." One of the more furious fans tweet "ABSOLUTELY FUMING. RAGING. WASTED SO MANY HOURS AND WENT TO BED WITH SO MANY HEADACHES. FOR WHAT??? FUCKING NOTHING THATS WHAT #DublinMurders"
The fans who invested their time, energy and intellect into the show seem to be questioning their own smarts. "4 weeks and 8 episodes later and we still don’t know what happened to Peter and Jamie?! Or did I miss it completely?! Or are their bodies in the woods somewhere? #DublinMurders", tweets a viewer, while another says, "Retired after 40 years hard work... but never ever worked as hard as I have these past weeks trying to follow Dublin Murders #DublinMurders"
Another viewer has the perfect solution: "Fuck this, I'm gonna have to go to them woods myself and find out what happened #DublinMurders [sic]". Hopefully, the American audience will have a better time understanding the details of mystery and reading into symbolic answers to literal questions. If not, they can join their British counterparts in demanding a Season 2 that would be able to answer all the questions without puzzling us further.
New episodes of 'Dublin Murders' premiered every Sunday on Starz.
