Season 3 Speculation (**Season 2 Spoilers**) Really enjoyed this, but I feel for... *SPOILERS* Just finished Season 2 Thoughts on the ending? now you see it... So much potential... Anyone surprised by any of the twists or the ending? (SPOILERS) ep 7 - Lt. Ash Tyler View all posts >


Just finished The Innocents and I found I liked it more and more with each ep. I ignored this for a long time because I expected it to be more about effects and spectacles than anything else, but instead it's a solid drama with memorable characters, and a little bit of effects here and there. Lots of lovely scenery. Nice soundtrack. Just what I needed for a while. Too bad it ended the way it did. I doubt there's any chance of a sequel. To me this show is an underappreciated gem. I don't think the initial marketing got it quite right or I would have watched it long ago. That was what I was thinking early on. Eventually Adrian's character gets filled in some more though and it becomes clear he just had to have it all his way. Not a hint of blame. If they talked to the police, then his affair would have been unveiled, as he was supposed to be in Paris. For him, that was all that was needed to get the ball rolling. Perhaps it was a little too subtle for some to notice, but I like how Erica grew this season. It pained me to watch her in Season 2, but I was glad to see her character fleshed out with talents and the whole fact she's a closet "nerd" herself, to the point where she's clearly calling Dustin a "nerd" affectionately by the end (though she obviously wouldn't admit it), because they've become friends. I also liked that once she absorbed most of the backstory about the Upside Down, El, etc., she didn't miss a beat helping out. Some folks apparently find the stereotypical attitude thing funny so there's that, but I'm glad there's more to her character now. I have seen a lot of people post that interpretation. I can see why people thought so, but somehow I feel it's just another world in which the same people were brought together in yet another different way. My interpretation is pretty close to the one in this video (except I think she also agrees with you about the previous stuff being part of a TV show within the show, which to her is a level of understanding or ascension): I've always been suspicious about the bridge-jumping scene in S1 and whether OA was really meeting the kids and BBA for the first time, as well. I didn't really get into reading theories until the show was said to be "cancelled" (I don't think it really is). I just always felt that we were "misled" (more like re-directed) about where S1 connects to S2 (and everything else that happens). Personally I don't think it was at the end of S1 that Prairie ends up jumping to the S2 dimension. If S1 leads to S2 anywhere, then I think it was when she jumped off the bridge right after escaping from Hap. What if what happens after the hospital scene is both the end and the beginning of the series (like the message on the door Karim reads in the infamous Nob Hill house)? And I don't think it's the least bit out of place for OA to have memories of things she technically hasn't experienced yet (i.e. teaching the movements to the kids and BBA in the later part of S1) in S2. Elodie demonstrated that you can leave and return to a body in the same dimension. What if OA learned during her quest through multiple dimensions how to do just that, herself? Definitely enjoyed the season, aside from a few quibbles. It'll be a long wait for the final one. I'll check out the story. Thanks. I also found it mediocre. That said, even as a disappointed long-time fan of stories that play around with time, I can see how others might have found it satisfying who just watched it more for the simple story that was there. ^^^ I really only came into this thread to make sure someone answered along these lines. :P It's not the hardest thing to imagine. I suspect the writer who came up with this either knows a particular diner that has martinis and didn't consider it to be an unusual thing, or they just don't know much about diners in general. Limited experience of one kind or another. But again, it's not impossible for a diner to have spirits. She would, but those films were okay as they were, I think. Do you think a remake is necessary? I also appreciate smartly-written, subtle sci fi. Prospect was already on my list, but now I'm more interested in watching it soon, thanks. What other such gems might you suggest (on Netflix)? For what it's worth, I also can't stand procedurals, but while Lucifer certainly has such elements, it still kept me coming back for the character and story arcs. I was also quite impressed the bits of actual world-building going on here and there. View all replies >
