‘Constellation’ season 1 episode 5 review: Less paranoia, more reveals

If there’s one perfect word to describe “Constellation” so far, it’s “uneven” (as much as it pains me to say it). After an explosive three-episode premiere that left us worried about the show’s long-term appeal – despite the stunning artistry and acting on display – episode 4 turned things slightly around with compelling character drama and some neat tricks.

With Oliver Hirschbiegel once again in the director’s chair, episode 5 (‘Five Miles Out, the Sound Is Clearest’) feels too meandering and unengaging to keep the momentum going, instead shifting back to focus on the writing’s weakest links and paper-thin mystery. However, it does provide a wider look into the conspiracy surrounding the otherworldly plot at its center and ends with a genuine headscratcher.
