Spoiler-Free Review of “Big Sky” Season Two Premiere: That Cliffhanger though…

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

Big Sky is back!

Big Sky quickly became one of my favorite shows last year. Sure, the plot went off the rails sometimes but it really had a mystery that hooked you right from the start and its well-placed reveals, twists, and turns kept you coming back for more. I absolutely love this series…no excuses!

As a reminder, the show stars Katheryn Winnick, Kylie Bunbury, Brian Geraghty, and Jesse James Keitel. Season two premiered on September 30th 2021. Weekly episodes will air on ABC.

At the end of season one, we were left with a major cliffhanger. One mystery was wrapped up for the most part while another one still has the potential to make some waves, but what can we expect from season two and will it still pack the same punch?

Let’s find out…

The Pros:

New characters with promise!

I was beyond thrilled to discover that Logan Marshall-Green was joining the cast and we have several returning favorites as well. I thought the first half of Big Sky (season one) was stronger than the second and I connected more with the teens that were abducted off of the highway.

Season two is smart trying to replicate this formula for success as we are introduced to Cassie’s babysitter and several of her friends. They are already lighting up the screen for me and I can’t wait to see what happens next with this new mystery they have become entangled in.

That cliffhanger ending!!!!!!

There will be no spoilers in this review but make sure you stick around until the end of the season two premiere. I almost fell off my chair at that reveal. I was a little worried that the story-line from season one had run its course, but I’m back in 100 percent and I think that we have a good balance going on between the new mystery and that one.

The Cons:

A lot of set-up.

I didn’t really mind it but there was quite a bit of set-up in the season two premiere. I am confident that the reveals will be rewarding enough but I wanted a touch bit more action in the first episode. Either way, I’m intrigued and ready to watch more as soon as possible.

So am I in or out?

I’m in!

This show is my guilty pleasure. I absolutely love watching it and I don’t even care when things don’t make complete sense because it is just so much fun to watch and it really is so addicting.

We have a lot of moving pieces for season two but I think that it has successfully done enough with that ending alone so I will be tuning in every week to find out more.

DON’T TAKE THE JOB…

Girl Number Thirteen Only Job

It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.

I hope you enjoy!

Spoiler-Free Review of “Intrusion” on Netflix: Not Your Average Home Invasion Movie…

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“We can get through this…”

Intrusion premiered on Netflix on September 22nd 2021. The thriller film stars Freida Pinto, Logan Marshall-Green, Robert John Burke and Megan Elisabeth Kelly. It runs for approximately 90 minutes.

Meera and Henry Parsons are traumatized after a home invasion occurs in their newly built home, shattering their trust in those around them.

Here is the trailer:

Intrusion has a chilling and unsettling impact as it takes a home invasion premise and weaves it into something even more disturbing. But does this film do enough to earn a watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Performances with edge.

I was absolutely thrilled to see Freida Pinto in this and I thought she did an excellent job. Logan Marshall-Green was so fantastic in both Upgrade and The Invitation and he is no stranger to this type of movie. I really loved the character dynamics and I thought they both presented us with believable performances worth getting excited about.

I cared about what happened to them which made this movie come to life that much more for me.

A shocking twist.

It’s not always easy presenting the audience with an unpredictable twist and I thought that this film delivered and then some. There will be no spoilers in this review, but I was so shocked by the reveal and I could not stop watching this movie once we got toward the end. I loved every second of it!

The Cons:

Flickering identity in the middle.

The film quickly gets off to a chilling start but then things split off into several different directions during the middle portion. I was slightly confused and started to wonder about what kind of movie I was actually watching. That being said, once I reached the peak of the movie, I was completely hooked, but I think that some of the initial discoveries could have been done in a more seamless way to keep the audience completely invested.

So am I in or out?

I’m in!

This movie wasn’t perfect, but I thoroughly enjoyed my watch. I think that Netflix has been presenting us with some really entertaining guilty-pleasure thriller and horror films lately and this one was really enjoyable.

The performances were great and that twist still has me in complete shock! Loved it!
