Has its foibles, but still one of SyFy's better efforts
1 September 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I have made no secret of disliking most of(if not all of) SyFy's output. Three Inches is one of their better efforts, and had potential to grow into a show. Certainly it does have its foibles, some of the sound effects did seem out of place, almost as if they had been thrown in at last minute, and had no real reason to be there, and the beginning(first 15-20 minutes or so) was rather lengthy. But the biggest problem was that despite having a great premise, with some great ideas and rarely feeling dull, the tone of the story was uneven, it alternates from wacky, gloomy, sweet and harsh, and it makes one wish that they had stuck to just one or two of these. However, Three Inches does look good, the scenery is atmospheric and striking and the photography is much better than the haphazard quality I was expecting. The effects are better than average as well, Three Inches doesn't rely heavily on this area and that is a good thing as it does focus on what matters more, the script and characters. The writing is clever and often very funny, while the characters are more than the stereotypical ones you often find, Walter is a character you do identify with and Macklin is an amusing character who I would've loved to have seen more of. Despite the uneven tone, I did like some of the ideas that Three Inches presented, such as Carlos' comic-book-like narration, Ethan's heartfelt reveal about Walter treating him like normal and being the only one and Watts' sweeter personality underneath her seemingly hard one. The acting is good, Noah Reid's lead performance is very likable, while James Marsters gives one of those cool and mysterious performances that he excels so well at. Overall, one of SyFy's better efforts though still not perfect. If it had evolved into a show, I'm sure what was wrong here- which is not a lot in comparison to the usual standard- would have been done better as time progressed. 7/10 Bethany Cox
