THE SHORT VERDICT:
Silent is, to my eyes, a pretty special snowflake of a drama.
Compact at 11 episodes, Show manages to pack more meat on its bones than some longer shows.
It’s contemplative, thought-provoking and layered, and I often came away from an episode, chewing on the thoughtful nuggets of insight and wisdom that Show served up.
Our characters are likable, and sometimes their behavior might even lean on the aspirational, “goody” side of things, but the heartfelt writing and delivery somehow makes it all land as believable and organic. I found that quite remarkable.
As a bonus, the music in this is thoroughly enjoyable, and just brings the watch experience to another level.
Very much worth the drama hours, in my opinion.
