Review of the first season of Servant
Initially, it seems that Servant is going to be just another series that promises entertainment, but in no case addiction. However, the levels to which the series advances from the fourth and fifth chapters make it become a kind of audiovisual drug from which it is difficult to get out. The seal of the creator, M. Night Shyamalan, is evident in each of the episodes, both at the script level and, above all, production. The shots are perfect participants to create a harmony of tension and paranoia that at times makes you want to turn off the television, however the intrigue is stronger.
The character of Leanne is presented as a sweet and innocent young woman who is only looking for her first job with which to become independent from her family, however, as the chapters go by, we learn about a very dark past and a hidden personality that are passionate and shocking in parts. same. The small details that the young woman leaves (such as a scene kissing a mirror) make us plot in our heads what her great secret may be, which seems to be revealed towards the end of the season, however, it leaves our souls in suspense. and a lot of unanswered questions.

Second season of Servant
When the first had not even been released, Apple already reported that Servant would have a second season. It finally premiered on January 15, 2021 , being composed again by 10 episodes. These are still being broadcast and a new chapter is released every Friday. The main premise of this new round is to resolve open questions in the first season around the origin of Leanne, although others are also opened. The producers already warned of a supernatural turn of events that is finally evident in these episodes.
Season 2 review
The bar was very high in the first season and it must be said that the first chapter of this new batch brings back some of the sensations, although with the passing of the episodes it seems that it is losing some steam. The mystery and tension continue, but leaving a strange feeling of wanting to move forward at all costs and not only to discover these mysteries, but not to fall asleep, since time passes very slowly in these new chapters. However, it ends up being just a mirage.
The fourth chapter of this second season begins to discover a Dorothy absolutely out of her mind, with a masterful performance by Lauren Ambrosse who knows how to take a deranged character to the extreme and who has many doubts about her abilities. The script twists appear, somewhat less obvious than in the first season, but they are. The viewer comes to feel anger, compassion, empathy and hatred with the same character depending on which chapter she is watching and that nothing is what it seems. The supernatural turn promised in this season is perhaps not as high as intuited, but it can be seen. Also visible, once again, is Shyamalan's brilliant craziness at all levels.
