Thrilling and eerie, Bellevue is a mystery set in a small blue-collar town with a lot of 'good people' who 'live right' and take it upon themselves to make sure the neighbors do too. ...

So confusing and frustrating.

I really enjoyed this story in spite of all the unexpected twists and turns.

Confusing Mess .

Bellevue has one of the most intriguing potential in recent times and has all the opportunities to make a masterpiece thrilling series but all of it was misused to bring us a boring messy series.

My beef was that it is a "sit and watch" mystery rather than a "beat the police to solve the crime(s)" mystery, but it is an enjoyable "sit and watch".

The central crime was enough of an engaging story.

Bellevue (2017): Right from its posters to its trailers,Bellevue promised a great thrilling series.

Let's give this show a chance to fill its boots before dismissing it after such an engrossing first episode.

Anna Paquin (The Piano, True Blood), Canadian born but New Zealand raised, plays a local detective with a complex and intriguing past who takes on the case with great enthusiasm, and does so brilliantly.

A must see for fans of Anna Paquin, who has little trouble adapting her considerable talents to the minimal demands of this pedestrian and predictable noir flavored melodrama that never quite lives up to the promise of "thrilling and eerie.

Driving the series is Detective Annie Ryder (Anna Paquin), a cop whose intense and brazen personality has always been at odds with her hometown.

" Nevertheless, the series somehow escapes the utterly tedious as the story meanders from one patch of trouble to the next toward a hammy "all's well that ends well" finale that has characters and cast literally rushing around to tie up loose ends.

No Story; just strange stuff that remains unexplained .
