I'm thinking Walt and the man in black have teamed up - pretty sure they are behind it all. Just messing with Michael...I have to give my weekly commentary of the show "From" on MGM+ because it is both intriguing and maddening at the same time. I am invested so I won't stop watching, however, this show is meandering all over the horror genre and feels like the writers are making it up as they go along with no real ending in mind. As I said, the intrigue is there, but is it what will happen next? or what will these clown writers think up next? I have this terrible feeling this story will never end. It will be canceled before we the viewers learn the answers to any of the mysteries, just like the show "Outcast". Or, lacking any kind of coherent explanation for the previous episodes they will contrive something ridiculous without an real explanation. It will be the equivalent of the Sopranos black screen ending.
Last week the show ended when a bus full of new characters pulled into town. This week it was up to the current residents of spooky-town to explain what is happening there. This is where I literally screamed at the TV. "Get it out, man!" I know it would be nearly impossible to explain what was happening in the town but at least try. It seemed like the townspeople fell silent when it was time to say "Shut up and listen to me!".
Then, we are introduced to a new character who for some reason is chained to a wall. The town "sheriff finds him and want to free him from the wall but for some reason has no interest in how the guy got there. When the chained guy tells him it wasn't the usual scary creatures who chained him up but something much worse the sheriff is uncurious about what it was that did chain the guy up. It is almost bizarre. Wouldn't the obvious question be, "like what?"
To me this is lazy writing. It looks like the writers could not come up with a clever way to write these scenes so they just wrote around them leaving me, the viewer, annoyed and frustrated. Or worse, they deliberately avoided the expected dialogue in order to avoid the real explanation for what is happening in the town - probably because they have not determined that in their own heads yet.
Season 2 of "From" giving some indications of Fonzy on a water ski heading in the direction of the man-eating sharks.
Man, I'm right there with you. I'm invested, like the story but this past episode had some many *** moments. Also, the guy on the bus at the end, my goodness that is the smile of nightmares.
