"The Night of" is a riveting police and court procedural with outstanding performances, especially by Rhiz Ahmed and John Turturro, and by supporting actor Jeannie Berlin as the district attorney. It takes the viewer through the process of being detained, arrested, arraigned, and then shipped to Rikers to await prosecution. Watch the demeanour and body language of Rhiz Ahmed change over the episodes. Innocent or guilty, his life is never the same.

3.5* I found this series rather drawn out and slow at times. It was good drama and acting well done. I did fastforward at times.

Wow! Riz Ahmed could write a book with his eyes.
He can play innocent with those big brown long lashed eyes, or cynical, angry, lustful, fearful, grateful, and happy too perhaps? I began half watching the first disk and couldn't get interested. Something happened and then I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. By the end of the second disk I had to go back to watch the first disk again. On this rollercoaster ride of a story, I was convinced, several times, that he was innocent. And then they pulled me back in again: guilty. Tucci reminded me of Columbo so although I enjoyed his performance, Riz stole the show with the least lines of the main characters. That's what I call acting.

a young Pakistani man, out to party in Manhattan, a few years after 9/11, is accused of an egregious murder he says he didn't commit, throughout eight episodes, his life changes, and the lives of everyone around him, including his lawyers, the investigators, his family, the prosecution - fine performances all around keep the suspense bristling, but wait for Jeannie Berlin as the lead prosecutor, who steals the show absolutely every single scene she's in, wonderful

You're not going to see better than this. Turturro's closing moves both you and the jury. Don't miss a minute.

I started to watch this series and then realized that it is based on a British BBC tv series by the name of Criminal Justice. It is actually available on Youtube. I watched the first episode and find in comparison that the original is a much better production: the acting is better all round, especially the accused, much more convincing than the American made spin off.

This best TV series I've watched in years. I thought there would be a second season. Hope springs eternal.

Very dark brooding police drama. Good story line, however it was dragged out far too long for my liking. Interesting cast of characters ranging from the main character, a Pakistani student charged with murder to a disgusting attorney with a skin disorder. Too much of the story is dedicated to prison lifestyles.
