There are only eight episodes in the freshman season of this new show, which isn't a lot for a television show. I know I was not the only one who wanted a little more, even with an extended final episode.
This series is not really a horror series, which many people have said, it is more science fiction than horror, even with a few scary scenes with an unnamed monster. There is a lot which is never explained, and I often find it frustrating since a freshman season of a show should not only introduce the characters but the idea behind the scenes. What was this show about? Honestly, I cannot say I am sure. It could have been about a bad place, it could have been about a bad man, it could have been about a monster, but this was never divulged. So after watching it, I will probably watch season two, but I am not as excited as many of those who I have talked to about how the first season went.
I would have liked a little more about how things had come to be, as there were some hints and some conclusions made, but nothing was really fully developed, even the reason the main female child was kept. Was she created? Was she born the way she was? There was not development in how she came to be where or who she was.
There also seemed to be an unnecessary character, the father of the missing child. He is seen in the first episode and then once towards the end but it is added drama that was not needed and his character didn't add anything to the series. Also, he alludes to the mother having an issue before, but it is never spoken about again.
I can't say that I loved this show like everyone else I have spoken with, however, it was interesting. I am looking forward to season two just to see what happens next, but I don't feel the eagerness I have felt with other shows, such as JESSICA JONES.
