Station Eleven #TVShow

Streaming on Crave

10 episodes



Survivors of a devastating flu attempt to rebuild and reimagine the world anew while holding on to the best of what's been lost.




My review for the book, Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel


REVIEW:
I was in the middle of the road with the book. The beginning was less than satisfying, so it made for reading three hundred and something pages hard to start into. It was good enough at the end to intrigue me enough to want to watch the tv adaption. 
The series starts off exactly as the book but maybe better. The book was flipping between point of views, where the show although it does it, it's more fluid. It made for a better beginning and I was hopeful.
Then it got weird. Just like the book.
But unlike the book, you were able to get through it and understand it.
What I appreciate about this series was how real it felt, especially after the beginning of our own pandemic and what we went through. It was easier to connect to the show. I did read the book before our pandemic and feel that might be the disconnect to the book. I just couldn't fathom an apocalypse until we lived through one so-to-speak. Seeing no one in the streets of cities like Los Angeles during the beginning of the pandemic will stick with me the rest of my life. It was also powerful and humbling. 
Still the show was weird, but likable.


3.5/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
