Kept watching for 1.5 episodes, because it was so bad I couldn't really believe it.
So immensely off-the-mark in just about every respect that it is...stunning. Woman is rescued after SIX years of being held captive by a serial killer in a mask, who beat and barely fed her and repeatedly drowned in a locked tank of water with hallucinogens added to it. But after a few days in hospital she starts to look kind of pretty again and goes home. Of course, she has to go home to her brother's place, since while she was missing she was declared dead by the courts in absentia; her husband has remarried; and her kid, who was just a toddler when she was taken, is now a preteen who considers the new wife his mom. (Ok, sure.) Yet...nobody talks about any of this. When they do talk, it is in ways that are astonishingly inept--not true-to-life inept, mind you, but the sort of inept that can only be written by people who have lead emotionally stunted lives (and yet feel too full of their own clueless selves to be bothered to research what a case of extreme trauma might actually look like). Writers, actors, and designers alike conspire to ensure the mood is one of unceasing, unqualified sulkiness. I think they think this is the key to approximating a really good Scandinavian cop show/thriller? Which means that every excellent nuance of the Scandinavian cop show/thrillers they've watched has gone entirely over their heads. Which makes me kind of sad...because how do people like this even get to make a series in the first place?

Please oh please just skip this one. Unless you want to watch it stoned with friends and laugh? But no, even that would be too painful. Just go watch Bosch again instead, if you're jonesing for your cop show fix.

Audio levels were maddening
I tried. I really did. But the thing that got me is that between the dialog and mood music, and from scene to scene, the audio levels were like a roller coaster. Even after adjusting the Dolby settings on the Fire TV Stick, and the audio settings on my TV. The range is absurd, from inaudible whispering to crazy eardrum splitting music. I finally gave up... it's just unpleasant.

Absentia is goofy waste of time. Soooo unsatisfying....
These agents are too young and too pretty. And on what freakish planet would an FBI agent be actively investigating the disappearance of his own FBI agent wife? And for him to then be interrogating the suspect? Ridiculous and completely unbelievable. I hate trash like this that completely insults its audience's intelligence.

This is one of those shows where all the adults - nearly without exception - act like precocious junior high schoolers.

Amazing Show
Verified purchase
I loved this series. I actually was looking to watch Castle as being a fan of that show for many years and I then saw Stana Katic was in her own and I was like hey why not. I loved this show and It kept me glued to my seat and I can't say that about many shows. The only thing is when I tried to watch it through the apple tv the audio was a bit difficult to make out, but watching it on my laptop was much better. I hope season 2 will come soon!

ABSENtia S1
Verified purchase
Just received this series. Have waited 2 yrs. for it to come out on DVD. Half way through S1 and am loving it. The plot is twisty and very interesting and what happened to her during those missing years that she was kidnapped is going to be a big reveal when I get to the end of the video. Keeps you in suspense. Yes, starts off very intense, but Kana Static is outstanding. Great show.
