Storyline

The Alienist opens when a series of haunting, gruesome murders of boy prostitutes grips New York City. Newly appointed police commissioner Theodore Roosevelt (Geraghty) calls upon criminal psychologist (aka alienist) Dr. Laszlo Kreizler (Brühl) and newspaper illustrator John Moore (Evans) to conduct the investigation in secret. They are joined by Sara Howard (Fanning), a headstrong secretary determined to become the city's first female police detective. Using the emerging disciplines of psychology and early forensic investigation techniques, this band of social outsiders set out to find and apprehend one of New York City's first serial killers.

Give It A Chance
23 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

The main reason I'm writing this review is to say to all those Taboo fans out there rubbishing The Alienist, that compared to Taboo, a show totally fake and PC, This one, while only one episode in, is dramatic and seems very authentic. The first episode of Taboo, which immediately stank of PC nonsense and tokenism in order to draw a wide audience, (not that it ever helped,) was by comparison, an instant choker.
