My reaction
Synopsis: time-traveling survivors
How I saw it: streaming online (from Netflix), over the past few days
Concept: Great.
Story: Great.
Characters: Great.
Dialog: Great.
Pacing: Great.
Cinematography: Good.
Special effects/design: Great.
Acting: Good.
Music: Great.
Subjective Rating: 9/10 (One of my favorites). This is what television should be. Granted, I could do without the whole 10% of the show spent waiting for a character’s name to be revealed thing, and I was pretty disappointed when A Certain Character didn’t end up dying after all at the end of the finale, but whatever. Easily the best season so far.
Objective Rating: 10/10 3.8/4 (Great).
