Snowpiercer TV Series (TNT)

(1/5) > >>

Trond:
Holy smokes, this show is great. IMO it is MUCH better than the movie. This despite the fact that I always thought the central premise is a bit....odd, albeit very interesting, I have been getting really into this, and I can be pretty hard to please.

For those who don't know the premise: the world has gone into a deep freeze, and humanity's survivors are all stuck on a train in perpetual movement, driven by some sort of eternal engine that also keeps them warm. Passengers are strictly divided into 1st-2nd-3rd class, and then you have the "tail" people who actually strong-armed their way on board and have been treated like garbage ever since.

The TV show feels much deeper and more complex than the film (again IMO)

Well, i tried to get into it. Seems i have to try again. :-

..But i will forever see it as a Willy Wonkas Chocolate Factory sequel, no matter what continuity or form, nobody can take that away from me.

To be fair, I give up on things easily, but my wife got hooked to it. Then I realized I actually really like it.

I found snowpiercer the film misanthropic and utterly retarded.

If you figured out water-fission reaction- who the fuck builds a world loop train for that? By that point you can trivially go to space (or have mega human metropolises that can be heated forever). Congratulations human race, nearly infinite energy has been discovered.

And with a dull and stupid 'Dem evil fat cats oppressin the poor' plot, how the fuck do they stretch that out for a series?

The first bit is still fuzzy and weird. It’s just an excuse to be on an ever-moving train.

The last bit is much better in the series. If you follow it you’ll soon find that there are no clear cut good guys and bad guys.
