Snowpiercer (based on the film of the same name) is a train, 1,000 cars long, carrying the last known humans on earth. Poor management of climate control is the cause of the reality in which they now live. The atmosphere is far too cold for anyone to survive; one would freeze instantly upon exposure. This is an interesting storyline that paints a dark view of our possible future. The train is constantly on the verge of a mechanical catastrophe that scientists are trying to repair which adds to the high-speed drama.
The series premieres its second season this month and stars the alluring Jennifer Connelly, Broadway’s Hamilton mega-star Daveed Diggs, and my personal favorite, Alison Wright. She slayed in the critically acclaimed The Americans on FX. Game of Thrones fans will have their tongues wagging for the arrival of hottie Sean Bean as Mr. Wilford, the creator and mastermind behind Snowpiercer. Season 2 also introduces us to Melanie’s (Connelly) daughter played by Rowan Blanchard. The train cars are decorated brilliantly and are specifically set up by class. Living in the tail car is basically prison. Some cars are decorated with extreme hip and wild style. The bar and nightclub cars feature cool and edgy hip-hop music, so some passengers not consumed by the war on the train try to achieve some kind of normalcy. The fashion is futuristic and extreme. Snowpiercer is fun!
“Snowpiercer” season 2 premieres January 25th on TNT.
