Snowpiercer: Season 1

Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly and Blindspotting's Daveed Diggs leads this apocalyptic sci-fi show from the creator of Orphan Black, following a perpetually-moving train holding the last human beings on an ice-ravaged Earth.

Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, the remnants of humanity inhabit a gigantic, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe. Each carriage houses a different group of people of different status and wealth. For those at the back, the least well-off, they're planning a revolutionary fight to the front of the train.

Originally a French comic, the story was previously adapted into a 2013 feature of the same name from Oscar-winning filmmaker Bong Joon-Ho (Parasite).

Snowpiercer will satisfy those who have been the most curious to see where it goes. With a second season on the horizon and the show making some bold moves, it’s not entirely impossible for the problems plaguing this first season — most notably the narrative inconsistencies — to be smoothed out in future episodes.

Snowpiercer” has a curiosity about its characters that exceeds its grasp. It places them in arrangements and situations that are genuinely wild, and then elicits bland or unremarkable emotional reactions.

Snowpiercer isn't exactly good, but at least isn't a disaster.

The story comes together midway through the 10-episode season, raising provocative political questions. But with so much appealing TV out there, some are bound to disembark early.

So while insurrection boils at the back of the train, fomented by a proletariat in perpetual motion, “Snowpiercer” also becomes a police procedural. A stylish production as well, though one does have to make concessions—this “Snowpiercer” is nothing like the original, nor could it be—as well as leaps of faith and suspensions of disbelief.

For those who stumble across “Snowpiercer” while flipping channels, or learn of its existence from a few online advertisements, it might offer enough silly fun to stick with ’til the end. For everyone else, adjust your expectations now. Sometimes, it’s best to travel light.

For fans of the Snowpiercer film or Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette’s graphic novel, this will be familiar territory, along with the conflict between the tail section of the train and the indifferent millionaires and billionaires that make up first class.

It doesn’t stay with you the way that Bong’s Snowpiercer did, but where the film was so eager to tear through the train to root out the truth, the show savors the details of life onboard, dissecting personal compromises and minor rebellions.
