This is the new Lost
29 January 2019 | by kuarinofuSee all my reviews

The structure of every episode after the pilot goes like this:

85% of the episode absolutely nothing happens. Then in the last 15% they suddenly realize "oh yeah, we have a story to follow up on" and they give you another cliffhanger just so they don't lose your attention and make sure you come back.

So if you really want to enjoy this you can watch the last 15 minutes of each episode and you won't miss anything at all. I'm of course joking.

Seriously now, exploring the characters and their lives through these tragic events is one thing, but the way this is done here it's like watching as the water starts boiling for your pasta. Like come on, so many scenes are stretched out to infinity. After a 7 minutes long restaurant scene I really asked myself "do they even edit their footage at all"?

Why not have both the plot movement and the characters discovery. Why does it have to be one or the other.

Season one had both and wasn't this excruciatingly slow. I just don't understand why if they already had chosen such storytelling structure can't they at least make it a little more dynamic.

I was waiting for the follow up on the Trash Man wondering if they did forgot about him and surprisingly enough they did wake me up with something actually happening and it was the follow up I waited for. Brilliant. I really hope the ending will redeem this since I can't see myself coming back and re-watching this later.
