Here’s my first problem with this series:
Who the hell can read titles like that unless you have big-ass one-percenter 4K 85-inch TV? Come on!
Meanwhile, the in-episode credits are this size:
And hey, can we finally get some guidelines from all channels about the Safe Area for credits so they’re not obscured by the damned channel watermark?
My second problem is the special effects, which are videogame quality …
… and then sometimes worse:
As for the story, I’m still not sure what the hell is going on. But there’s been a cop taking a bribe that he later regrets, the same cop getting an “off-book” assignment to track down a rich runaway(?) girl, and a looted(?) and crewless freighter that has been left to send out a distress call that might or might not have been bait to trap others.
Oh yeah, and the future will still have shit like this:
Look, can writers stop calling them that?
Were Auschwitz, Buchenwald, Treblinka, and the rest Nazi Black Sites?
Call them the disgraceful thing they are: Torture Chambers.
When you use the language of the torturers, you make them seen good and cool.
They’re not good and cool. They’re Nazi soul-brother motherfuckers.
What they do is disgraceful and should not be made to seem something that’s run of the mill in an advanced society.
This episode was very rough and very confusing. But it intrigued me enough to want to see episode two.
That, however, is not a recommendation.
