Wonder if this ends up like Lost where three seasons in you're like 'Are they ever going to get off the train? What is off the train??'

Haven't seen the original film. Worth a look? Is it on any of the streaming services?

 

It doesn’t appear to be for some reason. I meant to watch it ages ago when you could still switch Netflix regions, but didn’t get around to it. Now it’s like it never existed in the first place.

WarnerMedia have switched it from TNT to TBS and renewed it for a second season at the same time.

Trailer is a bit weird. Like that Avengers game, but not as bad. Bit too close to the movie so it just kinda feels weird rather than it’s own thing.

The Brighton to London train was much like this during the late 90s/early 2000s.

 

and yet only took 4 minutes in 1953...

Yeah felt like the actress playing Tilda Swinton's character was seemingly doing an impression of her performance, but just not quite as full on.

Feels like someone at Netflix said "Are there any old films we can turn into a Westworld style dystopian drama? Oh, how about we just take this film from 6 years ago that's on Netflix already and just spread it out to 10 hours long."

A sneak peek. Animated, presumably from the start or near the start of the first episode, explaining some basic backstory.

Sean Bean is joining as a regular for season 2. Production already under way even though season 1 isn't out until next year.

Starts on Netflix on 25 May. Which is a week behind the US, but 25 May will apparently have 2 episodes. So it looks like episode 2 onward will be the morning after the US broadcast.

That appears to be an almost literal remake of the film, not sure how they're going to string 8 episodes out of it (never mind a second season).

Started yesterday in the US. Watched the first episode and it didn't really hold my attention. Not getting particularly good reviews either, at ~50% on metacritic.

The film is on UK Netflix, watched it the other day, really good.

 

It' not really good, it's absolutely batshit mental. Why did it need turning into a tv series? It's a  fantastic stand alone piece of cinema.
