I, for the last couple of years at least, typically didn’t pay much heed to HBO series. Then the other night I happened to catch a few minutes of the new series “The Night Of” as I was channel surfing. The tense, tightly-shot police station scene, even at a glance, looked compelling enough to warrant few minutes of scrutiny. Wow. It was gripping. I was hooked. Luckily (as is usually the case with HBO) there were enough reruns during the week to ensure that I could record a complete episode — in this instance, episode 1 which aired last Friday, July 8, 2016.

Tonight we managed to watch about 40 minutes of it. It was good. Riveting. Well made. Very engaging. Strongly recommended. I am now recording the whole series.
