Today I pushed through the rest of The Missing. I will say, after following the entire mystery of The Missing, I was not able to guess how the boy disappeared. So that aspect of the show was great. However, the remainder of the show was slow with only moments of intense story line. When those moments did occur, the writing stood out to me and the actors nailed their performances. But for the other parts of the show, I was not glued to the screen.I will say that even at the very end of the show, it left me wanting more answers. The final episode ended with missing pieces as to how Oliver (the missing boy) ended up where he did. There is a season 2 premiering this Sunday with from what I understand, is a different story line, but the main detective Julian is involved in the case. I will be watching season 2 but I am going to hold off until all episodes are available to watch back to back. For those interested, there were eight 60 minute episodes. So if you are in the mood for a mystery to keep you on your toes, definitely watch this program! But it is not suspenseful 90% of the time.
My rating: 3/5
To begin, I discovered this show while browsing through my STARZ application on my Apple TV. I had never heard of this show, but once I did my research I learned that it was nominated for several Golden Globes in 2014. This show is extremely well written and is slow paced, which leaves me multitasking between my phone and watching the show. However, I have just hit the end of episode 3 and now I am finally intrigued. This show is set in France and there is quite a bit of French spoken, which is something I am not fond of. Also the plot of the show is surprise a boy has gotten kidnapped and his parents are still looking for him 8 years later. There are many flashbacks which are hard for me to follow~~ but then again I am doing other things while watching the show. I can tell the show is leading somewhere, the plot is very thick and many details are discussed which can be boring at times. I plan to finish the series because I OF COURSE want to know A. if the boy is still alive and B. who kidnapped him. More to come…
Like most people, I am looking for an outlet for my thoughts. Yes, I have a diary from when I was 10 filled with embarrassing drama and self-loathing, but I’ve decided this is a better source to lay my thoughts on the line. Personally, I don’t know how long I will be blogging, but for now this feels like the right thing to do.
My entire life I have been fascinated by television. It has always provided a source for my to escape my life and delve into the storybook of characters displayed on a screen. No one I know shares the passion for television like I do, and I’ve decided to make a blog about what I see and understand television shows. Sure, this will also be intertwined with my personal life, opinions and struggles but the core of this blog is going to be about shows. A little bit about me: I am 22, and a recent college graduate. That’s enough for now.
