In the latest Netflix thriller, Behind Her Eyes (2021), the series follows the life of a woman as she begins an affair with her psychiatrist boss, while also befriending his wife. Based on the novel of the same name by Sarah Pinborough, the series stars Eve Hewson, Tom Bateman, Simona Brown and Robert Aramayo. YouTuber Austin Burke shares his reactions to the six-episode limited series.
A show that starts out in one genre. It starts to veer into a completely different territory and by the time you get to the end, whoa boy. I mean whoa boy I had no clue it was going to go in that direction. I won’t lie to you, I was sitting kind of scratching my head at first saying it’s not what I expected. It doesn’t necessarily follow the trajectory of what it sets up at the beginning.
A shocking and unexpectedly entertaining show, says YouTuber Austin Burke of the Netflix limited series. He describes the show as a combination of multiple genres that veer into different directions. Every time you think you know what may happen, it goes and takes an unexpected twist, according to Burke.
Burke also enjoys the way each main character is depicted with a specific color palette associated with them. It makes for a creative and visually interesting take on the story, says the YouTuber, who also really enjoys the writing for each character. The way they are built up, their emotions, and the sense of mystery behind them makes you question who is the hero and who is the villain.
The YouTuber claims this series is a story that has been done before and some parts feel somewhat cliché; however, it is interesting and entertaining enough to watch through its entirety.
