Netflix’s new series Seven Seconds is an addictive procedural drama that starts off as a murder mystery and turns into something else. The show isn’t so much concerned with the crime at hand as it is the fallout – the trauma that befalls relatives, and the way such events can impact several different lives. Seven Seconds has big issues on its mind, particularly tensions that arise in a community when dealing with a racist police force. Ultimately, it’s not entirely successful with its bigger issues, but a series of stellar performances elevate Seven Seconds into something worth watching.
Our Seven Seconds review continues below. Some minor spoilers follow.
