The story of three strange people, who gradually find out that their dreams are separate parts of a single dream. Each of them gets into mysterious situation: one is looking for his missing girlfriend, one is finding a lost child, one is searching cure for his mother - and it is the tracks from their collective dream that help them to disclose the truth behind.
The problem with Water is that it keeps promising revelations that are constantly withheld, as though we might not keep watching if the show tipped its hand about what all this dream investigation is really about.
We don't expect answers to the series' biggest questions yet, but we should at least know what the characters are striving for collectively and what's really at stake here. Otherwise, it's hard to really care about what happens each week.
Unfortunately, Falling Water makes the mistake of prioritizing intrigue over interest, failing to take any of its concept or conspiracy and connect it to meaningful characterization or narrative stakes.
Perhaps, if one took copious notes, consulted the show website's "About" page... the convolutions in "Falling Water" would yield rewards. As it is, it's hard to imagine finding the time for this dull, plodding thought experiment.
The sole appeal upon which Falling Water relies is mystery, and I'll admit that after watching I do want to learn the answers to the questions the plot has posed. But I don't wish for the answers so much that I'll sit through another hour.
Falling Water is a hollow puzzle box. It is a twisting, turning show that centers on dreams but completely loses the required balance of a series like this one: don't just present new questions, give us a few answers too.
