“Some weeks ago you violently pulled one of my associates Detective Donald Pomp out of a deposition.”
There is malfeasance and this show has burned through credibility. Sergio is grimly arresting and how is it impossible to make Amy immortal? Sarah and Julia were made immortal! Sergio has a fixed smirk. There are no good or kind people. Their wretched predicament goes on. Peter is unloved, isolated and alone. He has significant misery. Julia acts in wantonly, ludicrous ways. Julia does malign and disturbing things. What is Mother?
Everyone hates Peter. Everything is Peter’s fault and responsibility. Julia and Amy are unremittingly irritating. Landry and Amy are siblings. Ew. There is grisly humoured creepiness. Sergio is smoothly enigmatic. Wayward males are ranted at. What was the overarching vision for this show? There are cracks in Amy. There is an atmosphere of suspicion. Everyone has utter distain for everyone else. Amy has mad-eyed disarray and manic insistence on moral decay. Landry is a layabout lout. Amy’s not freakily intense and has undisguised malevolence.
This show has diffuse narrative focus and outrageously contrived goings on. There is nonchalant immorality. Julia is wilfully uncritical and the island is a fantastical, emotional, dramatic place. Alan is complete human ineptitude. Kyle hallucinates in a flow of banality. Amy has limitless ambitions. Sarah has earnestness. Alan has ill-defined motivation. The disease seems to choose who to infect. Anne shows what is beneath her civilised veneer. Peter sees more of the cult’s crazy. Where did he get matches? Sergio dies at Amy’s hands. Oh come on. What a waste. This was good. How did Sarah know Sergio was on the island? This was doom laden.
“I threw away my marriage for you.”
“Has it gone airborne?”
“Why do you hate me? Why?”
“Not follow some kid to a magic tree!”
“We didn’t want them to chew through their feeding tubes.”
There is significant disquiet. There are no valid emotional responses. The CDC plan to spray the island to eradicate all life. Amy has notions about herself. Alan plays up his role of reckless maverick. There is unnecessary hostility and effective violence and no emotional resolution. Anne has moral unease about Amy. Peter wants to be highly regarded. Anne has no look of sentiment for Amy. Sergio is still lying on the ground dead. Nobody told Olivia that Soren was alive?!?
In determinedly unoriginal fashion Alan saves the day. Perpetually crestfallen Peter goes loony for non well judged reasons. This was triumphantly compelling. The CDC has no idea of containment or safety procedures. They also never found Michael’s breeding farm in the cellar. There is rancour. Why did Michael inject dye into his irises if he was playing at being a god? How did he get silver eye dye? Amy looks for confrontations and people are dragged to their ruin.
Peter has power and purpose. Kyle is on to Alan and has a reasonable argument. Peter is treated in a deeply wrong way. Alan has righteous certainty and has deemed Peter unworthy of having an opinion. This was infectiously goofy. Alan has smug contempt. Soren annoys. Amy has ambition if not necessarily wisdom. There is bad VFX. There are lamentable circumstances and the unrepentant Amy and her obvious mendacity gets got. There are cruel manipulations by Alan and his assumed impunity.
