This may be my last episode review of this if the show doesn’t significantly improve early next episode. Mostly because I am bored. Half-hearted incomplete explanation followed by flashing cameras (that you just knew were going to transition back into the gun fire from last episode because they weren’t exactly being subtle with the visuals) and then we wake up in a cell (kind of). Introduce extras who are given about as much personality as mobs in prisons usually get before we introduce wholesale slaughter and wipe out almost all of said extras. It’s sloppy writing and its using sensationalism as a replacement for actual tension or excitement. The only moment that even really interested me was when the guy’s head blew up and you could see that coming a mile a way but it didn’t stop it being entertaining in a B Grade kind of amusing way. The other issue being they’ve already started a pattern of ending on a semi-sensationlist note to try somehow to convince you that you have to watch the next episode. Last week they open fire into the prison van and this week… well you can find out where they leave us if you make it through the episode. My biggest question: Why did we need to Anji’s? I’ll start episode 3 but this one is definitely on notice.
