It’s hard, at times, and by that I mean always, to figure out what’s going on in Britannia, which is basically the show’s biggest problem. And they had a maybe pedophilia is not that bad moment two episodes ago, one that I’m not likely to forgive them for, so for me to continue harping on this same message …it’s because I need to.
The show has absolutely no idea what’s going on. I would bet good money the writers room had no idea how season 2 was going to end when they were breaking episode 7, and there are just two episodes to go.
Or maybe I want to think they don’t know, because if they do and they still can’t transmit that …well, that’s worse, isn’t it?
Some people clearly enjoy the show – or we wouldn’t be here in season 2, but I’m clearly not one of them, and we’re too far in for this show to pull me in. At this point, as I’ve said before, I’m just waiting for it to end. I would, however, appreciate it if it ended in a more interesting way, though.
More happened in this episode than in last episode, that’s a plus. On the other hand, I have a hard time explaining what happened in this episode. If this were any other show I’d be tempted to rewatch the episode to try to understand it, but I’m not a masochist, so I’m not re-watching Britannia unless there’s some monetary compensation for this undertaking.
Perhaps not even if there is.
The show isn’t good. It was somewhat original when it started, and it could have gone into some interesting tangents, but it continuously chose the path of least resistance, and that’s where we are right now, with a show that is visually very, very pretty, and that’s about all I can say for it.
I don’t even have any commentary about the acting, because when the writing is as bad as this one, I don’t like to blame actors for not being able to pull it off.
Just three more episodes. Maybe something will happen next week. Or, like …before season ends.
One can hope.
