Them, with performances as Grand Guignol ludicrous as Dickey's and Pill's, and as vexed by pain and punishment as Thomas' and Ayorinde's, leans too hard on scariness at the expense of what truths those scares are meant to show us.
The performances by the actors are stellar in every episode, especially Ayorinde, Thomas and Pill. Despite the interminable wait to exhale, you will love and hate on their characters long after it's finally over.
Them is a series of beautifully visualised ugliness, which is engaging to watch but only in small doses -- not ideal in the era of binge-watching. But even The Handmaid's Tale allows its audience up for air.
