Bottom Line: Pink is a stylish assassination drama that gets the job done.
Natalie Cross works for the government – any government that pays, that is. Technically, she’s a subcontractor – like Haliburton, only with guns.
She gets hired to hunt down scum and dispose of them – and she always gets her man. Always.
Natalie loves the color pink. As in, “pink mist” (you can figure that one out).
Her prison psychiatrist called her “unstable”. Blame her dad, he was the dangerous one. Old School. Black Ops. And he always wanted a son (that’s why he called her “Nate”). He taught her things like, how to skin a deer and how to fire a rifle. So please forgive Natalie for being a “little girl” in a woman’s body, for wanting a childhood she never had, and for trying to walk away from The Life she was born and bred into.
Prison was a haven for her after she quit, and she’d still be there if her biological clock hadn’t started ringing. So she’s back on contract, working The List. But looking for two men now.
One she’s trying to eliminate. The other… well, she’s got something else in mind.
This show simply drips cool. You have a hired killer committing herself to prison. You have episodes filled with guns, BlackOps, assassinations and angst. If you are a little sick of all your web series being served up with a big side of comedy, then Pink is your place to turn for a little mayhem. (Style 4.5)
The episodes could be longer. They are going with the one episode, one concept model of storytelling but it does leave you wanting and not in that “oh my god what’s going to happen next” sort of way. It leaves you thinking that if they just gave it another minute they could tell a much better story. That being the case, it’s fun, kinetic and the off-screen violence is strangely satisfying.

Everything about this show is top shelf, the camera quality, the directing and a few cringe-worthy lines notwithstanding the script. (Polish 5)
