AVClub: Okay A.V. Club friends, we’re calling it. Aquarius reviews’ time of death: episode five. Because after five episodes (and four weeks), we can confirm that Aquarius is not much more than a somber, soul-crushing enterprise, which in this episode manages to wring out its last vestiges of humanity by destroying our main character. There’s a reason Hodiak’s been turning down all these drinks from pretty women: He’s an alcoholic (as his wife Opal hinted), and at the end of the episode, having lost faith in absolutely everything—his job, his country, his son, and the woman he loves—he goes back to the bottle.
