    Good cast and if they get half the weird **** in the book into this it'll be interesting.

    Read the book a few years ago. Heard they were adapting it for TV a long while ago too, I didn't think it was going to get made.

    Dont see I thread on this but came across this trailer. It is a fictionalized account of Captain Sir John Franklin's lost expedition of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror to the Arctic, in 1845–1848, to force the Northwest Passage with horror elements. Looks decent and has a good cast.

    The book was great (although it wobbled towards the end), I hope they can bring the same sense of claustrophobia and danger from the elements to the small screen.

    Really enjoyed the book apart from a few parts. Had no idea they were making this. Something to look forward to

    Starts tonight I believe.

    I find it funny that Ciaran Hinds, an Irishman is playing a British part, and Jared Harris a british actor is playing an Irishman!

    Have this on my Watchlist but just realised I watched a documentary on Captain Sir John Franklin a few months ago. Looking forward to it even more now.

    First episode is out there. Found it very good. Lot of atmosphere and a good sense of dread.

    Those explorers back then musta been crazy.

    Second episode airs tonight.

    Will this be released one episode per week after the first two? I enjoyed the book.

    I really like Jared Harris. Fine actor.

    Yes, ten episodes final one showing on 22nd May.


  • Registered Users Posts: 43 ✭✭✭ Maaa!


    Is this available on TV in Ireland? Its an AMC show which seems to only be on BT UK.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,604 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    That was a really good opening two episodes.

    AMC are putting all ten episodes up on some US-only streaming service they have, or so I've heard, so if they do...

    Bit of a slow burner but I'd rather that than the show being crazy from the start.

    Good acting and the show looks very good to

    I think we’ll give him a pass considering who his father is.

    Same here. It was fantastic. I love shows/movies with these kind of themes.

    It was very atmospheric. Class. Can't wait for the next few.

    +1

    The subtle way the show presents the horror that is coming for the explorers was expertly done.

    Right up my street so far. Liking everything about it.

    The two captains are great. Harris and Hinds nailing it and I feel that either one could have played either captain. Also liking the surgeon character too.

    The atmosphere is spooky and the slow burn is appreciated.

    Period talk is good as well, "seat of ease" etc.

    Never read the book, so I have no idea where this is going.
