    The overarching premise of the 15-episode season cracks and crumbles under the slightest scrutiny.

    Ripper Street is a decent but not especially remarkable thriller about crime solving in Whitechapel immediately following Jack's reign of terror.

    It's just too bad a show paved with such an enticing premise doesn't get a little deeper under your skin.

Good sides are the acceptable actors, the visuals and some mediocre excitement. But the bad sides are, each episode has its own closed plot and is not really connected to the next episode like in other series, even worse, each episode runs after the same scheme, the main characters get some Mac Gyver like ideas or clues or hints and solve the case. Most of the time i found myself doing other stuff and let the series just run in the background since most of the time i didn't miss any important plot.
    Its quiet enjoyable but not really great

    CyberGhost I have to respectfully disagree. Everything about this show is fantastic, the characters are what makes the show! I do howeverCyberGhost I have to respectfully disagree. Everything about this show is fantastic, the characters are what makes the show! I do however agree with not really knowing how accurate everything is but you truly care for the characters and you you can truly sense the plight of White Chapel. Love this show, I can't believe their are not going to do a season 3. Can lose some of the "reality show" crap and have really great drama like this and Copper (which they failed to renew).
