THE OUTSIDER
January 12, 2020  | By David Bianculli

HBO, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
SERIES PREMIERE: This new 10-part miniseries, based on the novel by Stephen King, premieres with an episode directed by Jason Bateman, who also stars as a murder suspect – in a case that becomes increasingly mysterious and, in some ways, irrational. Ben Mendelsohn and Cynthia Erivo play the detectives working on the baffling case, and Richard Price is one of the writer-producers handling this HBO adaptation. The opener is moody and slow-building in a good way, adding to Bateman’s stellar choices since making the transition from child star to adult actor. Arrested development? Far from it… For a full review, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.
