Helen McCrory's performance in Fearless in captivating, but it might be the only interesting thing about the show.

...although it doesn't rank up there with the very best, "Fearless" is entertaining, most especially because Helen McCrorly, an award-winning theater actor, plays the lead, and, boy, is she good!

While the series gets off to a stuttering start, it's certainly not irredeemable. The storytelling is brisk and packed with plot, the themes are important, McCrory is dazzling on screen and there is a potentially interesting thriller ready to come out.
