What a fantastic beginning. The tension that is held throughout the episode is awesome.

I underestimated the pilot episode, wasn't expecting it to be as riveting but it's actually pretty solid.

I watched the 1st episode of “The Night Of” when HBO previewed it early. The acting and production quality are very good, but overall it moved along rather slowly. When the episode ended, I found it good enough continue when the series formally starts — but didn’t mind waiting. I read somewhere that “The Night Of” was actually a remake of a 2008 British mini-series “Criminal Justice”. The remake is 8 episodes, the original is 5 episodes. I watched the 1st episode of the BBC production to compare. Noticeable immediately was the quicker pace of the story. Much more engaging when it hasn’t been stretched out with 3 hours of additional material. I also prefer the way the original suggests undesirable elements of the criminal justice system in general rather than the emphasis on racial profiling of “The Night Of” remake. Now that I’ve watched the story as originally told, I have no desire to watch the HBO version. Based on the first episodes, I’ve seen the better one and have moved on to season 2 of BBC’s “Criminal Justice” -- different cast and story, and just as good as the first season.

when I started watching the first episode I kind of thought where is this going, but after watching 40 minutes I was hooked! I'm excited for the next episode, I love the show, I love the characters and how its directed. 10/10

A very well executed, developed, and written series. I'm not sure there is another show that has progressed slowly, but still held my attention quite like this one. I particularly enjoyed how attentive to sound the show is. How scenes intermingle what is happening, through sound, or how something in one scene, stays with you into the next. A unique flavor of producing that I enjoyed. [spoiler]I have to give credit to both the writers and the actors, for me still not being sure who I think committed the murder. We see Naz has the capability and maybe even tendency to losing himself in aggression, but yet that doesn't make sense in the circumstances he is charged with. Again, I think this being left hanging in the air was a wise and tasteful choice by the makers, and I thoroughly enjoyed the journey of character development.[/spoiler]

I saw this show on reddit of being one of the best from 2016 and after the first episode , I was hoocked! , The feeling that you get from the beginning regarding how the system works, is a harsh one , you are always wondering why the hell is this poor guy in this situation, was it really worth it? did he do it but doesn't remember? the slow pace gives you the anxiety of Naz , the lazy cop and lazy detective makes you angry at the system and only the poor itchy lawyer gives a damn about him. Great mini series , worth every episode.

Anxiety. Anxiety. Anxiety. Full of anxiety!
