    Saw a trailer for this show this morning. 6 part conspiracy thriller, starts next Wednesday (10th) on Universal (Global in the States,not sure if same date).
    DEPARTURE is a six-part whodunit series revolving around the shocking disappearance of a passenger plane that vanishes over the Atlantic Ocean and the investigative team is tasked with finding the missing aircraft and rescuing possible survivors. Featuring an all-star cast led by Emmy® Award winning Archie Panjabi and Academy Award® winning Christopher Plummer.

    Apart from Plummer and Panjabi, it has a solid cast of well known faces (Kris Holden-Ried, Peter Mensah, Claire Forlani, Dougray Scott). Worth checking out I think....

    Been looking forward to this for a while just hoping they stick with it being a 6 episode mini series and have a full beginning middle and end and don't cliffhanger it hoping to get a second season out of it.

    Kinda lost me the moment whichever cast member said "fasten your seatbelt, it's going to be a bumpy ride" :rolleyes: :D

    Can't believe Christopher Plummer is nearly 90.

    I'm intrigued as to the mystery but jeez the writing isn't great. It's like CSI the way it dumbs it down for the audience. The aviation forensics expert: "It's unlikely that a bomb wouldn't be detected in a passenger's luggage" - well no fecking sh1t! "The Air India bomb wasn't" (nor the 747 that exploded over Lockerbie) "Yeah but that was before 9/11..."

    Wow, I'm learning so much!

    Well this was steaming pile of a mess.


    They had a great cast a somewhat decent script and story idea.


    However whoever storyboarded it and edited made a total mess of it and it feels so disjointed.

    Yeah, seems a bit lifetime-quality. Only watched the first one so far.

    Did you watch it all? Episode 5 seems elusive. :o


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,417 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    It is available on an other channel to the one I usually watch.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,417 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Well who knew this got a second season? It's now on Peacock.


    Christopher Plummer's last role who passed away shortly after his scenes were finished.





  • Registered Users Posts: 55,417 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Season 2 was a quick and easy watch with a alright storyline.


    Renewed for a 3rd season.

    The first season is being shown on Ch5 and Sky Witness simultaneously, bit strange!

    First season was decent enough with a very strong premise. Two episodes into the second now and again a decent start. One major flaw though was when Kendra was just driving around for some reason, then stopped randomly in the middle of the road for no reason - exactly where the fugitive happened to be. I mean..... how convenient.
