Serie - The Mist: our Withdrawal episod review (102)

  • Par Whispertone, Los angeles, le 27 juin 2017

    Based on a story by Stephen King, THE MIST has been re-envisioned for television by Executive Producer and Writer Christian Torpe and produced for Spike by TWC-Dimension Television. THE MIST centers on a small town and a family torn apart by a brutal crime. As they deal with the fallout an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world, and in some cases, each other. Family, friends, and adversaries become strange bedfellows, battling the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity as the rules of society break down.

    The Mist is an American science fiction-horror thriller television series developed by Christian Torpe for Spike. It is based on the horror novella of the same name by author Stephen King. An unexplained mist slowly envelops the city of Bridgton, Maine, creating an almost impenetrable barrier to visibility. The residents of the town soon learn the situation is even more precarious as hidden within the mist are numerous monsters of various sizes that attack and kill anything that moves.

    Getting lost back in “The Mist” with episode two is a scary and exciting experience. We get to delve a little deeper into the characters as they attempt to unravel the mystery within the mist that has crept into their small town. Eve Copeland (Alyssa Sutherland) and daughter Alex (Gus Birney) are trapped inside the shopping mall with a larger group of other survivors. But most terrifying than the mist is Jay (Luke Cosgrove), who at the end of episode one had allegedly raped Alex. Surprisingly though Alex does not seem phased by his presence and it demands the audience to question her sanity. As Alex, Gus Birney may truly be able to bloom and show off her acting talents with the richness her character deserves to have expressed. Hopefully in the coming episodes she is given more time to explore the damage to her psyche from the trauma and the danger of The Mist.

    With Eve Copeland stuck in the shopping mall as well she and the rest of the parental figures decide it is best to try and get word out that they are trapped there. They try to get into the security room which has a secure radio that can directly notify police of the situation but no one wants to go except for Eve who braves the danger with another man, Clay. Clay has his own agenda but luckily Eve is the heroine to save the day, as well as her own skin. With this incident she begins to peer behind the veil and will most likely be the one to expose the origins of the Mist which seems to have a serious connection to the military. Eve escapes from the altercation with a little more knowledge of the situation for the audience and some credibility as a her own force to be reckoned with. Alyssa Sutherland is able to portray the change in Eve with incredible believability and it is the perfect example of someone who overcomes and dominates a new adversary, and not necessarily the Mist.

    On the other side of the mist is Morgan Spector who plays father of Alex and husband to Eve, Kevin. Last abandoned in the police station he gathers all he can muster and with the inmates assistance desperately tries to make it back to his family. Eventually Kevin and his group of a junkie, a John Doe amnesia victim and a teenage boy make it to the church only to discover more of the town’s residences who are showing peculiar behavioral habits. Morgan Spector will hopefully take on a defined role once the story starts to quicken its evolution by reuniting the two groups but as of now, and as Kevin, he seems to just be going through the motions of anyone trapped inside a sci fi horror tv series.
