People are missing the point. Backstories are the engine that drives a series.

8/10 🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠 = Heavy Praise

Season 1 for The Purge TV series isn't that different from the movie itself. There are characters who have a small storyline that occurs throughout the nite during the purge which they extended through 10 episodes. Season 2 however is a much deeper and expanded out look answering the question we've all been quietly asking ourselves since the first movie was released in 2013, How does the city go about life the other 364 days of the year. What is revealed is a riveting portrayal of rules we knew nothing about. From the start we even meet the amazing voice actor behind the infamous woman who conducts the announcements. Yes I understand most people watch The Purge because of the violence and gore, I myself am a big fan of disturbing movies. I've seen the most sick and disgusting movies ever filmed throughout the world so I'm not squeamish but the scene featuring the murder of the strawberry dairy farmer is nothing to balk at for a TV series. It may only last about 30 seconds but the scene is very graphic and horrifying due to it's realistic appearance and overly harsh tone.

People by now should understand and have a good grasp of the many terrifying ways someone can be killed or hunted down during those 12 hours murder becomes legal. But fans should be anxious to learn more and commend the writers, showrunners and directors for keeping the story relevant and entertaining as it continues to grow and evolve. Kudos too those behind it.
