How to Watch Shining Girls on Apple TV+

A dark thriller with twists that you won’t see coming, Shining Girls is another Apple TV+ show that practically demands to be binged.

The series tells the intricately webbed tale of Kirby Mazrachi, an archivist at the Chicago Sun-Times whose present has been scarred by a terrifying past. For years, she has tried and failed to get a grip on her ever-shifting reality, unable to grasp what is real and what is not. But when she comes across a case of a brutal murder committed by a serial killer, her own past — where she was attacked in a similar fashion and left for dead — rears its head. Dead set on zeroing in on the culprit, as she is convinced it is the same man who attacked her all those years ago, she joins forces with fellow reporter Dan Velazquez (Wagner Moura) to finally makes sense of the loose threads of her past.

Is bringing together the pieces of the past enough to solve the mystery that continues to spread in the present? Well, all you have to do is binge the series on Apple TV+ to find the answers.

It’s not just the critics who are appreciating the finer nuances of the show as subscribers of the streamer have also made their love for the show obvious with a hefty rating of 88% (based on 122 reviews).

Shining Girls is equally effective as a mystery-box show, as a detective potboiler, as a horror-tinged sci-fi, or as a powerful metaphor for women not being taken seriously. It’s also another stirring showcase for the seemingly infinite talents of Elisabeth Moss,” writes John Nugent, Empire Magazine.

Many have pointed out that the convoluted plot of the series bogs down the pace of the plot at times, but as John Doyle of Globe and Mail highlighted that even though the storyline is “trying to break out of the sometimes-confusing plot machinations here,” the fact remains that it is “a terrific thriller.” “Close scrutiny is required and rewarded with a dose of the chills. Moss is astounding.”
