One thing. I really love Atwoods book. If she decided to write backround story for Aunt Lydia, I dare to say she doesn't like this what showrunners have done. They almost ruined the character? I expect at least more violence....
But there are still hope I really do.
And in very first episode was visually stunning, beautifully shooted and music and every soundedit or music were perfectly made. This was BIG. Now it's going to be Huge.
Off topic: I follow emmy, golden globe and oscar galas every year. To me it is important who wins or get nom. As we all know first season got multiple wins. Second season didn't, cause of thrones, westworld or the rest decent shows. But this. There are few shows who deserves more attention..I doub't Daredevil season three and Punisher season two doesn't get there. That is wrong. And disricpectful. The very best are Better call saul, the last kingdom The Haunting of the Hill house, Chrernobyl, Cobra kai 2, After Life, the act and couple first episodes on thrones. Hopefully dinklage don't get political win like he did last year. Hopefully Moss walk Emilia clarkes over in galanight. If this keep this great level of storytelling going, this is the very best series entire year.
This wasn't ordinary episode in black mirror. Like the very first (and brilliant) episode(when series wasn't netflix series yet, but they succeed to keep idea of the series most episodes follow) episode, this was a tense thriller. Problem was a plot. Simple is good but there was too many places in that script(I'm an beginner author but different language) where I would plant couple twist, really good spots to execute witch have done way more complicated, unpredictable and tensefull im this story. Maybe they should ' ve describe Characters more, with couple flashbacks. And maybr these characters backround storys conyains somekind of secret, what involves a plot. they wasted that story, there was hslf a dozeng elements what they've can use the plot. Somekind of connection, leverage at least. Something like that. This was too obvious and therefore lame conlusion. I don't understand where that always threatning, twisted ä and tense atmosphere was. Think again those mentioned episodes for a while will you? Good. Why that dark mood, breathtaking soundediting, directing and brilliant shooting, bizarre agles, very original cut are simply gone in this episode. Why these elements missing? This was the highest ranking episode in season 5 and I expected more. Story was good and execution was decent. But i'm a bit a diassapointed here Altough I give it 8 stars cause it is very watchable.
