Here we go again.
In Germany …
… 2003 …
… a young girl goes missing …
… and appears out of nowhere in 2014.
Really, I was going to bail on this from the start but I saw they brought back
Jean Julien Baptiste …
… who was the only redeeming feature of the first series.
This first script is a real botch. They’re asking us to keep track of what will be at least three timelines: 2003, 2014, and present day!
Stop this shit already. Tell a story from the start and go straight through. All of these flashbacks and flash-forwards and in-betweens are a pain in the ass to keep track of, dilute any sense of drama and suspense, and usually don’t work out at all in the end.
Besides all that, from the start I came to the conclusion
Jean Julien Baptiste revealed at the end of this episode:
And shit, if I saw that before the opening credits, what’s there left for me to endure? What could they possibly spring on me to keep my interest aside from making
Jean Julien Baptiste even more interesting than in the first series (which is possible, given that he’s French!).
I will try to suffer through more, but I will skip posting about every episode, as I did with the first series, and only do the final one next.
