Amazon Show, Night Sky
#1
Don't have time for a full discussion. Wanted to leave myself a note here to come back to.

This is an Amazon Prime original production starring J.K. Simmons and Sissy Spacek. They are a retired couple living in a small town up in Minnesota. They have a shed in their backyard which hides a secret: a chamber that leads to another planet. They've kept the secret for about 20 years (since their son died). They frequently go through the shed to the other planet to watch the night sky of an alien world.

The story is very slow at the start. There is a lot of exposition and character development as they introduce characters and explain what's going on. It picks up pace gradually.

There are 8 episodes in the first season (2022), and the last episode ties up some loose ends while ending on a cliff-hanger.

I'd say it's worth the agony of watching the early episodes, but only just barely. Simmons and Spacek are, of course, excellent actors and I pretty much kept watching the show only because of them. I mean, the rest of the cast are good actors but I don't really know them.

Anyway, I'll have to leave it here for now.
