I’ve been watching The Purge TV show. The first season is pretty much your standard Purge movie stretched to ten episodes. It’s okay, but not amazing.
The second season so far is way better. It’s like night and day. Acting and script seems to have moved up a notch and, interestingly, it focuses on the aftermath of a purge. So first episode you get the end of an annual purge, followed by the fallout and build up to the next one over the ensuing episodes. You see all the back room surveillance and work that goes into maintaining it. Completely different to the first season and the films.
Completely new cast as well, so you could arguably just jump to season 2 if you’re familiar with the premise from the movies.
