Are we underestimating ‘The Terror’ at 2018 Emmys? It could become AMC’s third limited series nominee

Is AMC’s limited series “The Terror,” based on Dan Simmons‘ best-selling novel about a lost expedition to the Arctic in the 1840s, being underestimated by our Emmy Experts? As of this writing only one pundit — Ben Travers (Indiewire) — predicts that the haunting program will become the cable network’s third Best Limited Series Emmy nominee after “The Night Manager” (2016) and “Broken Trail” (2007). But don’t forget, the Emmys have a love affair with AMC shows.

‘The Terror’ Broached One of Humanity’s Biggest Taboos in a Thoughtful, Chilling Way

‘The Terror’ Broached One of Humanity’s Biggest Taboos in a Thoughtful, Chilling Way
[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for “The Terror” Episode 9, “The C, the C, the Open C.”]

What does it sound like to lose a connection to your own humanity?

For “The Terror,” the answer came in the form of a sunlit meal around a dining table that was ordinary in every way but one. A faction of expedition survivors, thrust under the murky leadership of the enigmatic Cornelius Hickey, gather to survive by consuming one of their deceased mates.

“The scene where they’re all around the table for the first time eating human flesh, we didn’t score it,” executive producer and co-showrunner David Kajganich told IndieWire. “And when we got to the mix stage and saw that there were quite a lot of emphatic chewing sounds in the temp mix, we were like, ‘No, no, no, no, no. Take all of that out. We’re not fetishizing this moment. We’re just observing it.

‘Motherland’ Review: Sharon Horgan’s Sundance Now Cringe Comedy Is an Accurate But Taxing Glimpse at Motherhood

‘Motherland’ Review: Sharon Horgan’s Sundance Now Cringe Comedy Is an Accurate But Taxing Glimpse at Motherhood
Cringe comedy isn’t for everyone, but the best forms of it — “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “The Comeback,” “Peep Show” — find a way to make the awkward situations their characters go through feel necessary. It helps make that discomfort relatable and cathartic for the audience.

The Sundance Now acquisition “Motherland” has the perfect set-up: What’s more socially awkward than the passive aggressive, gossip-filled, and cliquey world of parenting? Though creators Sharon Horgan (“Catastrophe”), Graham Linehan (“The It Crowd”), Helen Linehan, and Holly Walsh (“Dead Boss”) build this chaotic existence well, they also shoot themselves in the foot by making their main characters self-destructive instead of self-sustaining. They don’t survive the madness so much as they consciously perpetuate it and then complain about the problems they’ve created.

Following one working mom who’s trying to balance her professional and familial responsibilities, “Motherland” begins on a particularly panicked day when

‘The Terror’: How the Show Made Some Tin Cans and Paranoia the Deadliest Forces in the Arctic
[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for “The Terror” Episode 7, “Horrible from Supper.”]

Like many other details surrounding the latter parts of the real-life expedition that formed the basis for “The Terror,” there’s a tiny bit of haziness around the color of the cans that provided much of the crew’s food. Those Goldner’s cans, innocent-seeming at first, have now become one of the most menacing forces in a series that’s already seen attacks of all different kinds.

“We knew they were some shade of red, because of the cans that were found on King William Island, but those are so distressed at this point, you could really make a bold choice about what shade you wanted to go with,” executive producer and co-showrunner David Kajganich told IndieWire. “We tried a bunch and figured out that that was the one that sort of draws the eye in a way that subtextually feels ominous without overdoing it.

The Terror Review

Four episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

The Terror, AMC’s historically-spun horror tale of Arctic exploration gone chillingly wrong, hits slower than its title suggests at first glance, but it still may hook audiences hungry for a 19th-century seafaring screamer.

Adapted from Dan Simmons’ epic 2007 novel of the same name, the miniseries tracks the imagined misfortunes of two Royal Naval bombing ships – the Hms Erebus and Hms Terror – that departed in 1845 on what the British crown hoped to be the most consequential exploration of a generation. They never returned. The expedition’s commander and captain aboard Hms Erebus, Sir John Franklin, attained folk-legend status as a leader who bravely fought a crisis in conditions most would consider uninhabitable.

As told in a brief prologue to the opening hour (“Go for Broke”), The Terror’s central hope is the captain of Hms Terror, Francis Crozier (Jared Harris). A veteran of both Antarctic and Arctic travel,
