Brian Tallerico of RogerEbert.com write of this series,
The people behind this 8 episode short story about a serial killer never really know how to tell this story,
and meaning Continued chronologically by continuous cross craft,
which only reflects the piece’s tone n motion.
Dan Feinberg – Hollywood Reporter’s share an opinion that, The Serpent ends with how poor story choices,
bad accents and an opaque central performance can thwart Yarn’s most naturally entertaining performance.
Melanie McFarland of Salon.com says, After a point, the grift & murder end in shock,
and one might wonder what really drives a person like Sobhraj.
His act power is melody, but words describing her soul do not appear anywhere in the script.
