Alias Grace | Official Trailer [HD] | on Netflix

The following is more information regarding 'Alias Grace' from Netflix:

Alias Grace is based on Margaret Atwood's award-winning novel. The six-hour miniseries follows Grace Marks, a poor, young Irish immigrant and domestic servant in Upper Canada who, along with stable hand James McDermott, was convicted of the brutal murders of their employer, Thomas Kinnear, and his housekeeper, Nancy Montgomery, in 1843.
Has anyone seen the new 'Alias Grace' series on Netflix yet?

As a fan of Margaret Atwood's writing, I was curious about the new series on Netflix based on Atwood's novel, Alias Grace... I've yet to read Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood, so was hesitant to watch the series prior to reading the novel. 

However, not knowing when I'll find the time to read Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood when I have so many other books waiting to be read, I decided to go ahead and watch the 'Alias Grace' series on Netflix.

Although, I enjoyed the acting and costuming in the adaptation of 'Alias Grace', I didn't like this series overall. I can't quite put my finger on why I didn't like it... Something about it just didn't sit right with me.

If you watched 'Alias Grace' on Netflix, 
what did you think of it?


  1. I haven't read this yet but I saw it on Netflix and put it right on my watchlist! I also still haven't gotten a chance to watch the whole of The Handmaid's Tale adaptation (I'm hoping to reserve a week of time and just watch it all then while I'm on a free trial). I'm hoping to really carve down my watchlist this next year, though :) Thanks for reminding me of this!
