Tin Star Review
I don’t like Tin Star. If you do, you should probably stop here. This is not a personal attack on those that enjoy the show. Everyone is different. Now, I skipped forward through the finale, because it was anti-climatic and painfully slow. There was very little substance here. Jim tortured Frank and killed Whitey. Elizabeth used the information against Gagnon to quickly climb up the career ladder with North Stream.
With most of the main characters dead and Jim with no real nemesis, I am not sure why this series would be continued. There is really no story left to tell. It isn’t my cup of tea. I could go on and on as to why, but I won’t waste my time or yours. It scores a 4.5 out of 10. Catch up with past recaps of Tin Star now!
