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.

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.
