Adapted from a Turkish series, “Game of Silence” tiptoes around the events that set the story in motion, setting up an elaborate revenge plot with an overabundance of twists, many of which don’t hold up to close scrutiny. In that regard, this serialized NBC drama — tonally similar to the program it replaces, “Shades of Blue” — is sort of an anti-binge proposition, where it’s easier to get drawn into the episodes if the viewing is spread out enough to overlook some of the absurdities. In terms of hooking viewers, the pilot puts a reasonably good first foot forward. Yet however much the network might yearn to emulate the success of another series with “Game of” in the title, “Silence” isn’t golden enough to occupy that exalted seat.
