I don't recall (at this point) if I've written a review regarding the show's first season -- though I know I've referenced it on a few occasions -- but it was one of the most pleasant surprises in the last year or so for me. The show's promotional materials (for season 1) were not very impressive -- in all honesty -- so it was a jaunt I wasn't all that interested in taking. I read a few reviews after it released, and even those weren't all that complimentary. I don't remember what put those folks off about the show, but I seem to recall some taking issue with the story's ideology. (Like so many, I'm disappointed when storytellers infuse political messages into their dramas.) As the season wore on, it seemed as if more critics were enjoying it, so the wifey and I gave it a spin. It was quite nice.
Yes, I'd confess that the story has a political undercurrent -- it would seem that we just can't help ourselves these days -- but I found it negligible. Also, I didn't feel the Ridley Scott production really beat any drum (message) singularly: watchers could interpret some of the developments any way they liked, and perhaps I grew to appreciate that kinda/sorta open-ended political narrative more than themes that tell me what to think or caution me to think otherwise. (Hello, Star Trek: Discovery!) By the first season's end, I was more invested in the characters anyway, so the messages were easier to set aside.
There was a trailer release earlier, but now a second one fleshes out a bit more action for what's in store when the new episodes are available. As this one was a pleasant surprise, I'll definitely be tuning in.
Trailer is below. You folks know what to do. As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
