You guys! I admit, this one snuck up on me. It actually took a few attempts to actually get into it (at first I gave up after episode 4 the first time). But you know how it goes: your friend keeps tweeting about it, it’s getting to the end of the regular tv season and there’s starting to be a drought of new episodes of… anything, (there’s a chance at an interesting ship…). Anyway, it’s actually, surprisingly, kind of a really good show? So I thought, since I started out here (almost 2 years ago, ack) recapping a sci-fi show, I’d try to convince you to try out this one. With gifs! Who can resist gifs?
Besides gifs, after the jump I’ve included a trailer, my opinion on what’s good (and a little bad) about the show, plus a character rundown.
In my opinion, it’s actually a great time to jump in a catch up, because the season finale is this Wednesday. It’s only a 13 episode season, so it’s not that many episodes, and it’s not like there’s a ton of other shows still airing new episodes right now. (Cause I know you’ve already binge-watched all of the second season of Orange Is The New Black). So if you prefer to watch shows with already finished seasons, that works. And if you like engaging in the social media element, people should still be talking about it.
Fair warning: I’ll be touching on a couple of plot points from throughout the season below the cut. Nothing too spoiler-y, but if you want to go in completely blank, be aware.
