TV The Passage (Fox)

#53
The first season only has 10 episodes.
And too many people from the pilot episode in all 10 episodes per IMDB. No mention of any 100 AV cast members.

It felt like the pilot covered nearly half of the material of the present day from book 1. I still enjoy the book, particularly the audiobook (Scott Brick). It can be tediously slow at times but its still solid.

Watching it now, not hating it. They condensed the origin story of the virus into the first 5 minutes, which wasn't a bad call. And I'm surprisingly not hating Mark Paul. Turns out Zack turned into a decent actor. Who knew?

A couple of big red flags right at the start:

1. Supposedly smart people doing incredibly stupid things to advance plot.
2. Long exposition given to people who obviously already know what's going on.

Straight up poorly done. I almost respect it because they didn't even attempt logical transitions.

I never claimed to have high standards in my televised entertainment.

Watching it now, and it's disappointing.

Anyone still watching? I thought how they did the time jump was actually quite clever.

Stopped at episode 2 but still acquiring them. Was going to wait until the end of the season and then see if it was worth binging. Did it get and better?

Not sure if it’s gotten better. I’m just watching to see how they try to pull it off, for science.

Haven't seen last night's ep yet, but I'm not hating it. I'm even forgetting that I'm watching Zack Morris now. One thing that still annoys me though it's not detracting from the story is all the virtue signaling it's doing with regard to the characters. Making the little girl black, making the one monster female, turning Anthony into a really bright guy (He was supposed to be slightly dull in the story.)

Like I said, not enough to detract, but if you read the novels you pick this shit up quickly.

I have only ever seen the tv show and it's ok. Not as douchey as I initially thought it would be.

How the hell did you see the time jump in February? It only happened in the season finale last night?

BTW, I didn't hate it. The novels were better but this didn't totally suck. Interesting to see what a season 2 might look like.

Read an article saying The Passage is right on bubble of cancellation. Could go either way.

Lied. Tried to do a bit. No one bit. Got bored. Haven't watched it at all yet.

I didn’t hate it but ultimately it’s forgettable.
