Okay. I have now binged the entire first season and watched the premiere of Season 2 as well. I am inoculated to any spoilers as of this post!
Huge Thumbs up to this show. A fucking 1.
Firstly, to those who ranted about Episode 6: Dudes, you are getting WAY too involved in the nitty gritty of the writing. It wasn’t anywhere near the disaster you are portraying it to be.
Secondly, this thing is, from a writing perspective, really quite brilliant. The balance between the Over-the-top nature of the time travel plots and the humanity of the recurring characters and the leads – and their interactions – is not a small thing. It’s brilliant. David the Social Worker and Marcy are brilliantly written and sublimely acted. That trumps any aspect of Schrodinger’s Plot Hole that has your genre dick tied up in a knot. It really does.
If all you can do is rant about some plot holes in the metaplot – respectfully, you are MISSING THE FUCKING POINT of the series, and perhaps, Life on Earth.
Anyways, this show is a treat. It has a rating on Rotten Tomatoes through the roof at 93%. It’s got it for a reason. It’s not about the finer points of timing on Major Dickless and the implications of Protocol 3.
So if you are a hater, you need to take a break and then watch the rest of the 1st season and move on to Season 2 - which is also well written and enjoyable.
WHEN ARE YOU FROM?
