You may not like it at the beginning but it get better after few episodes, the story is much deeper that it seems

This may be a minority opinion but I found this series badly written with a poorly constructed, underlying reality. The story unfolds in a format similar to 13 REASONS where each episode is one girl’s backstory. The plot is plodding. The “research project” is extremely unconvincing. The continuity is fractured. Basically, you not only have to suspend disbelief, but you also have to ignore any understanding of physical reality. I have no intention of watching them repeat this process with their male counterparts in a second season. I began watching with a willingness to give it a chance but ended up regretting the wasted time. I give the series a 4 (poor) out of 10 [Young Adult Drama]

I absolutely loved this, I literally cannot wait for series 2!!

Half way through bingeing and obsessing over this series I saw the status on here said the show had ended and it BROKE MY HEART. In that fat cliffhanger finale, all I could think as the episode wound down was how we weren't getting any more of the story. I didn't look it up before I finished the show to prevent spoilers but now I finally have, I AM SO F*CKING GLAD IT'S RETURNING FOR A SECOND SEASON. I almost cried when I saw it. My quarantined-stir-crazy-desperate-for-an-escape self needed that renewal. Trakt, dont do me like that ok ---- I've seen a few people on here mention how they hope season 2 won't centre around the male island and I definitely second that. I fell in love with the girls! Their dynamic, their backstories, their crazy ass behaviour. I'm personally not interested in learning about any male characters at all. In fact, I'd be happy to sit and watch 3 years of those girls going crazy.. but bonding on that island. I just really hope season 2 gives us more answers - what happened to Martha? What happened to Nora? How did Rachel recover from that incident? Did Leah confront Nora? Why and how did Shelby shave her head? How long were they on the island for?!!!! I'm sure the show will deal with all of this next season. I cannot wait. I haven't been this engrossed in a show in.. so long! Unfollow me now, this is gonna be the only thing I talk about for the next year..

You have to give it a few episodes to get into. It's really engaging, there's lots of turns and interesting character background. It bothered me that sometimes the teenage angst gets too much and the characters do plain stupid stuff. But overall, really fun show. (p.s. I found it maybe TOO similar to the book Beauty queens by Libba Bray)

I'm frustrated. There's a lot of promise here but it bothers me to no end that [spoiler]each story starts out telling us of a character's specific struggles but **without fail** ends up muddying the water, sometimes even painting them as co-villains of their own stories as well.[/spoiler] Ep.1 - [spoiler]Leah was preyed upon. It fell apart only because the guy was forced not to turn a blind eye anymore. Expected teenage angst ensues. So far so good.[/spoiler] Ep.2 - [spoiler]Rachel struggles to recognize that her Olympian dreams are over, gets on everyone's nerves by pushing people the only abusive way she knows how.[/spoiler] [spoiler]\* We also find out that the island is small as she can see everything surrounded by sea from the top of the mountain.[/spoiler] Ep.3 - [spoiler]Dot has had it rough. Rachel continues being hard to watch.[/spoiler] Ep.4 - [spoiler]Toni could have had a better life despite her home life being messy, but her temper comes out to ruin things way too frequently. Fatin and Leah's pettiness starts showing.[/spoiler] Ep.5 - [spoiler]Oh, Fatin... I feel like she never stood a chance of coming off as likable before but this episode was odd in that it _seemed_ to try to redeem her and then threw it all away. Her relationship with her father was good even without the comparison to how her mother pushed her all the time. Then she finds out he's a cheater and her go-to move is to **publicly** expose him (which ends up being them as the person who is cheated on also has their life put on public display)? WTF?! And her response when she's talking to the guy she's with was that she encrypted it so no one would know? I don't know if I blame this one on age and unearned overconfidence or too much TV and thinking this is a court of law and people have to prove stuff... [/spoiler] [spoiler]\* Leah seems to start moving on as she burns the book. The island grows bigger and now there seems to be animals?[/spoiler] Ep.6 - [spoiler]Leah started a downward spiral that now seems to have had previous deeper roots. While that lessens her fault in everything that's happened, it still doesn't make her character more likable, especially when she destroys a friendship by not only trying to cling to the abuse but also trying to turn her friend into an accomplice.[/spoiler] Ep.7 - [spoiler]We get a better picture of Gretchen's weird plan (mostly commendable goals, disgraceful execution), how Jeanette fit into it and how that makes her death completely stupid and pointless as she wasn't their only agent.[/spoiler] Ep.8 - [spoiler]Shelby's story is mostly what you'd expect, with a few adjustments. It was probably the one best executed though, especially Mia Healey's acting. Heart-wenching as that may be, she still played an integral part in her friend's fate.[/spoiler] Ep.9 - [spoiler]Martha is one of the saddest 'survivor' archetypes. I don't know if leading her whole life like that can fit the profile but the mere idea that a person could create so many fantasies like that just to be able to go on is heatbreaking. And that's without going back to her thoughts on love and sex or how she gave a testimony still unable to tell what really happened.[/spoiler] [spoiler]But the big event here has to be the revelation that Nora is the failsafe agent, not Dot. Ok twist, but then WHY THE FUCK DIDN'T DOT SAY SOMETHING? If Dot is not in contact with them, how would she know if the deal was still on and even if she did, why would she trust the people that are letting them starve and, oh, DIE like Jeanette did?![/spoiler] [spoiler]\* Also, WTF, a goat? If the island was as small as Rachel saw it, there's no place for a goat to hide from 8 people for long. Or from other animals as they feared in Ep.5...[/spoiler] Ep.10 - [spoiler]Am I watching a remake of 'The Other Sister'? Where did reserved but thorougly capable (enough to become a sleeper agent) Nora go to? I had noticed the steady increase of Nora's mannerisms but this episode turned it up to 11.[/spoiler] [spoiler]While at the end of the story we empathize with these characters, very few of them are actually likable. We empathize mostly because we have the bigger picture that they're all under great stress and suffering abuse (sometimes even from each other). We can hope that the relationships that they were forced to develop and all they were forced to learn will help them grow as people but that still would be a bittersweet outcome as Gretchen could claim that result as her victory and the experiment a success.[/spoiler]

I was hoping for some weird cliché and I got something really different from what I expected. I loved it from the beginning to end. I'd like it to be less Leah focused but other than that, it's so good!

avatar

I'm only 2 episodes in and I want them all to die. Word is it picks up, so we'll see.

avatar

First four or five episodes suck a$$ I'm ngl but after that it gets REALLY GOOD, I honestly did not expect to like it so much bcs of how boring the beginning was but you have to stay strong to get to the good stuff. AND THE ENDING OH MY GOD THE ENDING, I am so excited for the next season. [spoiler]And Leah that bastard was so annoying the entire show expect for the last episode, I guess I got used to how mentally unstable and insane she always looks.[/spoiler]

I really liked the whole mystery story that surrounds the series. Waiting for new chapters.
