Hello people, who may or may not like Canadian historical shows, this review is for you. Check out my take on Alias Grace!

What is Alias Grace about?

Alias Grace is a psychological, period piece that is pretty short (only 6 episodes). It follows a murderess recalling her life in a sort of flashback/interview like the way so that a doctor can diagnose if she was sane upon murdering two people.


Can I watch this show with my kids?

No. It features sensitive topics such as torture, abortion, and assault.

How did I find it?

Alias Grace showed up on my Netflix recommendations. One day I may watch everything on Netflix.

Things I liked about it:

  • The ambiguous ending. You are able to come up with your own version of what happened.
  • The time period is not one I have ever really looked at so it was cool to watch something set in a time period/place I don’t know much about.
  • The outfits are on point. I love them
  • Grace’s character as a whole. I admire her hard-working, sweet nature.
  • The length of the show. It’s not very long so you can get through it in about 4 hours.
  • No filler episodes, every moment of the show advances the plot
  • How the audience doesn’t get all of the information right away. It left me hungry to find out the who, what, why, and how.
  • The closing song
  • Solid lines in the show

Things I disliked:

  • There are so much violence and abuse in this show. Like I get that Grace is a young lass in the past, before women’s rights and such but my goodness, there’s a lot of it.

Overall, I give this show a 10/10. Thank you for reading my take on “Alias Grace”, I appreciate it. Comment below if you think she’s innocent or guilty. If you like my content, consider subscribing to my mailing list and if you want a review on something similar, click here.
