Today I bring you one of my most anticipated shows of 2020. Let’s find out whether it fulfilled my expectations!
The Plot (as found on Rotten Tomatoes):
Remnants of humanity live in a perpetually moving train after the world becomes a frozen wasteland in this futuristic drama that’s based on the 2013 film of the same name.
Well, this was interesting.
The story is intriguing enough and the acting is on point. However, for some reason – and I just can’t put my finger on what it is – Snowpiercer didn’t work for me.
By all means, I should have binged this show but instead, I watched an episode, and then it took me weeks to get back to it and continue.
Maybe it’s the fact that Snowpiercer – how it works, what happened before, etc. – isn’t fleshed out enough for me. I already had this issue with the movie. While the story we get is good, the world-building doesn’t give me all the information I want.
Nevertheless, I have hope for the second season, as I have a feeling that we might get more of that then. The show thus far ended with a pretty big cliffhanger that promises an intriguing next season.
As I’ve mentioned before, the cast was on point with eg Jennifer Connelly and Daveed Diggs who both delivered a strong performance. The soundtrack was also super well done and I ended up looking for several of the songs afterward.
While there isn’t really anything for me to critique about Snowpiercer, it somehow didn’t hit the mark for me. I wasn’t as hooked as I should have been and just couldn’t get into this season.
Did you watch the season? Let me know in the comments what you think!
