  1. Past the tour-de-force of acting, the sets and locations are exquisitely detailed and capture both the claustrophobic feeling of being caught on a ship in the wilderness to what seems like the endless expanse of the ice of the arctic. I'd like to point a particular detail that stood out to me. happy death day movie

    In episode two a smaller expedition leaves Royal Navy issued notes of the kind of "Whomever may find this..." in a desperate effort to both reach and be reached by the outside world. The letter contains translations to every language of every nation that mattered in the age of sail. I already find this a masterful detail that is unusual in Anglo-Saxon productions in general, and American productions in particular. the devils candy

    But what's more, the translations are written in the language appropriate for the age. Being Dutch, to find in that letter the correct use of 19th century Dutch was a small but delightful detail - and indicative of the rest of the series' attention to both the big and the small. watch Avengers Infinity War online

    Two episodes in and I am certainly hooked. This is Ridley Scott at his finest, and to be honest didn't expect him to get back into form after the disasters that were his last two Alien movies. Even with being one wikipedia consultation away from knowing the outcome of this story, it is a gripping, haunting series which leave you curious what will happen next.
