Stream It Or Skip It: ‘The Essex Serpent’ On Apple TV+, Where Claire Danes Plays A Widow Chasing A Mythical Sea Serpent In Victorian Essex

Why we’re so fascinated with mythical serpents and monsters is anyone’s guess. To some people, pursuing the Loch Ness Monster is equivalent to worshiping an all-knowing being in the sky. That’s part of the message explored in The Essex Serpent, an adaptation of a 2016 novel that takes place in Victorian-era Essex. THE ESSEX SERPENT: STREAM IT OR SKIP IT? Opening Shot: An overview of a swampy delta in the British county of Essex. A girl holding a cross and making incantations wades into a marsh, with her sister screaming after her.

Claire Danes and Tom Hiddleston in Apple TV+’s ‘The Essex Serpent’: TV Review

A young widow investigates reports of a mythical beast in a small seaside village in this adaptation of Sarah Perry's novel, set in late 19th-century England. Like the possibly mythical creature of its title, The Essex Serpent is something of a slippery beast. It winds through ideas and genres, twisting and turning in ways that can be difficult to predict, and wriggles free of tidy categorizations or explanations. It’s a story about a sea creature, sort of, but it’s primarily a story about faith and progress and love and maybe half a dozen other things. But if the journey it takes can seem occasionally odd and even frustrating, it’s one guided by a steady heart toward an ultimately worthwhile destination.
