Re: General TV Discussion and Thread for Shows Without A Thread Thread

Two shows I'm curious about

Underground Railroad - Amazon
Quote:
Follow young Cora’s journey as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. After escaping her Georgia plantation for the rumored Underground Railroad, Cora discovers no mere metaphor, but an actual railroad full of engineers and conductors, and a secret network of tracks and tunnels beneath the Southern soil.
Mosquito Coast - AppleTV+
Quote:
A gripping adventure and layered character drama following the dangerous journey of a radical idealist and brilliant inventor, Allie Fox, who uproots his family for Mexico when they suddenly find themselves on the run from the US government.

How does someone pitch that as a serious drama with a straight face? I'm guessing Amazon just wanted some black actors on their platform, which is fine but this dumb **** better be worth my time.

I'll change it to hack who wrote it, but I haven't read it or watched so I may be wrong.

Agreed it’s a crazy premise. Turned out to be an exceptional book.
