Denisov sneers at the teen rebellion/riot. This is not historical metaphor. This is a fascinatingly unfamiliar world. Peter tries to make the best of unfavourable circumstances. There is not enough credibility or cutting insight offered. Denisov has biting reproof for everything. Jackie has moral outrage. This was murky looking and there is no emotional response just bad acting and no moral reasoning.
This has no enduring relevance. What was the inciting incident for the occupation? Something happened in 88. Denisov has intelligence and depth. This was not engrossing but is not as cheesy as ‘V’. There is no credibility to the premise and its ideological bust up. Peter’s wife radiates anxiety. One can see why this was poorly received. Devin broods and chords blare.
80s perms on legs screech. Devin maintains an icy silence. The squatters and Peter’s wife face off. Devin’s clan yell at each other. No one commiserates with him. The prevailing narrative is to belittle reasonable complaint. Alethea prostitutes herself and whines and is berated for it. Devin’s dad blames for the occupation and unleashes a vitriolic rant. How was it all Devin’s fault? There is a refusal to face up to responsibilities. This was not as good as parts 1&2.
Devin’s evil ex screams and makes disparaging comments. Devin rants, Mariel is apolitical and Denisov has no consoling notions. This was talky and Jackie wears ugly pastel clothing. Her boyfriend whines. Jackie gets into the dance company thanks to Peter. This was not light or breezy. Denisov gets his shirt off so this wasn't a total loss.
“Tell them what to advise.”
“The amazing success of our occupation.”
“Very cynical to be in the KGB.”
“What does he touch in you?”
“Doesn’t make me feel safe.”
“Sound disappointed that you succeeded.”
“Lost your country before we ever got here.”
“Boozing and whoring.”
“Good hard work on the farm.”
“Don’t count on much from him.”
“Get relief food and clothes.”
“Burning old money.”
“Protect my own first.”
“Mourning our past.”
“We’re clinging to our last 50 acres.”
Citizen Z aka Simon hangs out with Innuits. 10k is Murphy’s brainwashed slave. The totality of his isolation and despondence is sad. Murphy plans a transformative action. It is convincing and unambiguous that Murphy is the big bad. Addy whines and bitches. There is an obvious twist about the mailman. This was okay. 10k is Murphy’s cabana boy and the creepy position of his bite mark is really creepy.
“Any sexual contact with the undead?”
“I hated these people.”
Escorpion And The Red Hand
This does not beguile. 10k gets a look of defiance. The subplot of Addy’s tooth is the least anticipated part of this ep. This was not singularly significant. Dr Merch kills herself. There is bad acting. Murphy is an ass without compunction. Poor 10k. Nothing is ever Murphy’s fault. No to this classless and witless ep.
“She gets what she gave.”
“Everybody after him!”
Little Red and The Wolfz
Doc Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest
“Remember last time.”
“A mess beyond hope.”
“That’s the big deal.”
“We die violently.”
“I’m Doctor Quinn.”
“We don’t have time for ready.”
"I'm not feeling that."
"I can't forgive that. I won't."
