Those Who Kill reviews
Heather Dekin, Examiner
In terms of questions, the show asked a few important ones that mostly involved the behavior of the two main characters. A prime example would be to examine the beginning of the premiere when Sevigny's Catherine breaks into her stepfather's house. The show's opening minute made it appear to be that Sevigny was going to murder someone in a matter of seconds, which didn't really happen in the end. D'Arcy's character made viewers shudder because he appeared to be harboring a huge secret and was less than willing to share the truth with anyone. Sevigny and D'Arcy excelled at making viewers wonder if their characters were worth rooting for or running from the hill to avoid in a dark alley. D'Arcy's character seemed to have a tendency to keep overly obsessed with his work in a way that it would be interesting to see him fold under the constant pressure. He also made viewers wonder if he was a serial killer himself, but Schaeffer sometimes seemed to be sympathizing with killers a little too much that he sounded very close to being one too. The mystery of Schaeffer's true nature made viewers wonder if Sevigny's Catherine would be investigating D'Arcy's character now or much later. Of course, that depends on what Sevigny's character will be doing in the future to solve her own private mystery. The weekly cases held some level of interest, but the personal interaction between Sevigny's Catherine and D'Arcy's Schaeffer made those cases exciting enought to watch live.[...]
As for breakout performances, Sevigny and D'Arcy led the pack because their characters were the largest focus in the series premiere and gave strong enough performances to make them unforgettable. Sevigny's Catherine was embodied to be a tough as nails detective by day and a very damaged soul by night that needed to cut herself to relieve the pain she felt. She made Catherine a character that took every part of her job too seriously that she only trusted a few work colleagues. Sevigny also added another level of mystery that made Catherine a wild card on so many levels based on the fact that no character or viewer knew what they were thinking. Her best scene came towards the end of the premiere when she was able to catch a killer, but she almost sacrificed herself in the process. Without uttering a word in a brief on-screen moment, Sevigny expressed her character's shock and fear of being turned into a victim before switching up into becoming a survivor instead. It should be interesting when future episodes start to flesh out Catherine's background to explain why she had become so obsessed with finding out the truth. A few flashbacks could explain things a lot clearer down the line. D'Arcy's performance as the quietly dangerous Schaeffer made him seem interesting and a little disturbing at the same time. He always managed to bring out the dark side in most of his characters by expressing an ulterior motive in his eyes and with an extra gleam in his eyes for reasons only known to the character. D'Arcy's strongest scene came towards the end of the episode when a simple package managed to explain a lot and also asked more questions at the same time.
Nancy Dewolf Smith, The Wall Street Journal
To say that Thomas Schaeffer is a method profiler is an understatement. A scene where he is poised to free a trapped women but delays the rescue to hover trembling above her, his eyelids fluttering, will leave you agog.
Todd VanDerWerff, A.V. Club
Catherine teams up with criminologist Thomas Schaeffer, played by James D’Arcy, and the scenes between Sevigny and D’Arcy are the sole highlights of the pilot. The two have a surprisingly crackling chemistry, one that makes the viewer wish Schaeffer weren’t married to a wife.
Anthony Marcusa, TV Rage
The man she enlists to help her track a killer is equally cerebral and weird. Thomas Schaeffer, played with controlled chaos and nervous stares by James D’Arcy, is an insightful and invested forensic psychologist... The marginal success of the pilot has everything to do with Sevigny and D’Arcy.
Taylor McDaniel, TV And Film Review
And, in fact, Sevigny and D’Arcy are the best part of Those Who Kill. Sevigny plays Jensen as offbeat and dark and twisty in a way only she can. D’Arcy plays Schaeffer as mildly tortured (for reasons we don’t quite know yet). And D’Arcy has this kind of wonderfully creepy Anthony Perkins vibe that serves his character well. The two have good chemistry and are interesting to watch together.
