Fans raving about dark cold case thriller 'Black Snow' which has a perfect Rotten Tomatoes score
| Last updated
Fans have found a new murder mystery to sink their teeth into, and it's proving to be a hit.
Australian crime thriller Black Snow landed on BBC earlier this month and follows a detective on the trail of a case gone cold. Check out the trailer:
The series centres on teenager Isabel, played by Talijah Blackman-Corowa, who was killed in 1994.
A synopsis for the series reads: "A small-town Australian high-school gathers for the ceremonial opening of a time-capsule buried by a class some 20 years ago, shortly after the murder of class-member Isabelle Baker.
"Isabelle’s family and the police are shocked when the capsule is opened to reveal cryptic messages in Isabelle’s written statement.
"These messages and other long-lost items suggest Isabelle had known she was in danger in the days leading to her murder.
"The case is re-opened causing heartache for the family and raising questions that certain people would rather not answer."
The thriller originally aired in Australia earlier this year, and since it landed on BBC viewers have been glued to their screens.
"Black Snow was fantastic, I'm a massive fan of Travis Fimmel but what a show that was," said one.
Another commented: "Really enjoyed watching Black Snow on @BBCiPlayer Set in Australia.
"I didn't know anything about the South Sea Islanders history in Oz before this.
"Travis Fimmel was great in this."
"I'm not Australian but recently watched Black Snow and found it incredible," put a third. "Binged the series in a day."
While someone else added: "Black Snow is probably one of the most phenomenal shows I've seen in a very long time. Travis Fimmel & Jemmason Power are incredible."
And while there aren't so many reviews to go on just yet, it's managed to secure a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes, which isn't too bad.
Praising the series, one critic wrote: "Come for Australia's latest must-stream crime drama, and the first of 2023, then, but stay for a show that embraces and interrogates much more than its recognisable basic setup typically indicates."
While another remarked: "This is a moody, well-made crime drama that forefronts a little-explored area of Australian culture and history, and so definitely worth adding to your queue."
One to add to the watch list, for sure!
