It must've been a Science Fiction message board or maybe even a Twitter or Facebook thread. The back-and-forth had grown really intense with both sides starting to lash out into personal insult territory. As calmly and courteously as I could, I interjected with a few posts, explaining that I watched the show, I didn't think it was as awful as some (in fact, I find it quite entertaining, but I realize it's not everyone's cup of tea), and I even admitted that I had some trouble getting into Season 1. As can happen from time-to-time, it takes a few episodes for programming to hit a stride and start taking audiences somewhere that looks interesting, especially when we're dealing with life after the Apocalypse, you know what I mean?
Anyway, there was no coaxing folks down from what they perceived as their respective high grounds, and that's a shame. There are plenty of SciFi and Fantasy shows out there I don't like, but I don't wish any of the talent -- before or behind the camera -- any ill will over their efforts. I've always argued that I'd rather have more genre properties than less, and I enter into each new show expecting to dislike it and hoping to be proven wrong. Perhaps that's my age showing, or perhaps it's just my realist attitude. Whatever it may be, it's worked for me for decades, and I'm sticking to it.
In any event, Snowpiercer is returning this January, 2022 for its third season. As I said, Season 1 took a bit to build up steam, but Season 2? That was a huge step forward as the writers really honed in on the class warfare stuff as well as the "science" behind Earth's dire circumstances (or are they?). We even said goodbye to a series regular in a way that made perfect sense, so kudos to those involved for their willingness to take risks as so few shows do that these days.
Trailer is below. You know what to do if you're interested.
