A few things about the first three episodes, which dropped Dec. 15 (and which self has already watched twice)
- Splitting up the characters creates great narrative drive.
- The scale of this universe is tremendous. Just the scope of the whole production, the ambition and sweep — not even Battlestar Galactica had that.
- The actor who played Erich, Jacob Mundell, is amazing. Once again, props to whoever casts this series. Can’t imagine any other actor who could play this role. They apparently found Mundell in Chicago.
- Drummer’s grief over Ashford broke me.
- Beltalowda is a thing.
- Absolutely hate Filip, he is trash. Points to the actor who plays him, Jasai Chase Owens.
- Monica Stuart, as played by Anna Hopkins, is a lot of fun to watch. Wonder why she never makes a pass at Holden, lol. Even just to worm some information out of him. She seemed pretty ruthless, in the books as well.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
