Black Summer Season 2 Netflix Review

what is up netflix fans welcome back to,my channel its been,a long time since season one but black,summer season two,is finally here was this a zombie show,that worked for you,do you believe season two can be better,lets do it so in this new season winter,comes with cold-blooded new,challenges during the zombie apocalypse,as frantic scavengers and violent,militias,battle the dead and desperate and oh my,gosh,the division during season one between,fans was,wild some people loved it and said it,was one of the best current,zombie shows others hated it and brought,up reasonable points as to why,certain things were problematic and i,thought it was,okay i thought there were really good,elements that could have been improved,in,season two and were going to talk about,some things that were improved,but there were also moments and,characters that didnt quite get the,development and depth that i required,so i was interested to see what they,were going to do different here,and how they could enhance this idea one,thing they keep consistent is the,cinematography,and some of these extremely long takes,that we get during the season thats,where i want to start,on a technical level its really cool,this is a very,difficult thing to capture especially,with the show like this and so many,different extras that have to do their,part,right and then we continue the shot and,there are no cuts in between and there,were,a few episodes where it was just a lot,of one takes im a sucker for that kind,of thing,and it really felt real because,of that specifically and the show almost,way more so than season one in my,opinion feels like a documentary at,times i mean we are starting out with a,bang in this first episode and funny,enough thats what we ended on,at the end of season one a big 30 minute,scene of,action and battles and people taking out,each other because no one really trusts,anyone during an apocalypse,we kind of got to experience that last,year with the toilet paper,uh but beyond that were getting right,back into it with season two as,uh you think were with someone and then,someone else will come in and take that,person out and then somebody else comes,in and takes that person out and,its just this wild crazy hectic frantic,opening episode,and i thought it was really effective,less stupid mistakes,in this first episode uh because we know,in times of trial and hardships people,are going to do things that dont,seem maybe as smart as they should seem,and we do get a lot of that in season,two but they definitely,sort of course corrected there with,giving us characters with,more compelling qualities this time,around but were also still with some of,the characters that we knew in season,one,and really the ones that get the most,development are rose played by jamie,king and then we have anna who is her,daughter,played by zoe marlett and of course we,saw them reunite at the end of season,one and that was definitely compelling,but this time theyre trying to trudge,through this snowy,landscape and thats one of the big,themes here is,game of thrones winter is here and,obviously its going to make things a,lot more difficult and they are going to,encounter,other characters with a very similar,objective as,theirs but conflicts often clash,when you have so many different people,trying to survive,and that level of trust is just not,there,we saw that with season one were seeing,something like the walking dead and,thats a very consistent theme theyre,going to maintain,the standout element for me this season,was one,i did care about the characters a bit,more her daughter coming in and becoming,more of a main player,that is something that really stands out,for me and elevates this season above,season one in my opinion,but also the intensity is so rampant,this time and just keeps you on your,toes on the edge of your seat,that being said of course there are,times during this season where it slows,down we get a bunch of characters in a,mansion or a bunch of characters in one,room and,you know somebodys hungry somebody,needs medicine someones just kind of,like i dont want to be here anymore,and i dont trust you so im going to,hold a gun in your face we get a little,bit of that,and thats going to frustrate some,people obviously,and there were times where i thought the,character decisions just didnt quite,fit what they were slowly building up,with that character if that makes sense,but again kind of going through what we,went through last year,and seeing how people act in times of,crisis,part of it did feel a little bit more,realistic than season one ill say that,much,and you add in the style of this show,thats one thing i really want to talk,about,is how this show is put together not,just the title card being put on,uh each episode well multiple title,cards but its the narrative structure,of showing us the resolution not,spoiling anything of course when they,show us but showing us the resolution of,how,a bunch of different people come,together or the fallout of that,and then flashing back always cutting to,black,and giving us the build-up to that,moment and were gonna fade to black and,cut to black,about a hundred times in this season and,if that kind of storytelling bothers you,i dont know if youre gonna like it but,i actually found it to be,um extremely compelling in a way i,thought for the most part it worked,and were picking up with a lot of,different stories now thats something,else that i i,foresee you know bothering many people,is theyre going to watch this and say,well what was the point,right it feels like every show like this,theres always one main goal for all of,our characters,and this feels more like just following,around a bunch of different groups of,people,trying to survive even though we do,leave off on a huge cliffhanger at the,end of this season,and you know its not going to work for,everyone and i myself had,questions at the end as to you know why,we didnt get,more of a cohesive goal but,at the same time i found it really,interesting that they went down that,route and they told the story,like this and we get to see all of the,different interactions and so many,different characters in this location,and fighting against the elements,fighting against each other,and of course fighting against the,zombies so,a lot of different things at play in,this season and a lot of different,characters but the focus,always or well sometimes comes back to,rose and her daughter and a lot of those,characters that they interact with there,um not all of the acting was perfect but,i do think the performances were better,off this time around as well,so what black summer managed to do is,they did manage to improve on a few,things in season one,that i thought they had potential to,improve on so first off if you enjoyed,this netflix review and you like what,were doing on this channel be sure to,smash that thumbs up down below and,stay with me were moving into a new,house the sets gonna be a lot different,soon,black summer season two dives even,deeper into the human interactions but,the narrative structure,and brilliant cinematography were the,standouts,this time around um im interested to,see what people think im going a,70 for this season a solid season,of zombie television and sometimes you,just have to sit back relax turn your,brain off,and enjoy the madness and the intensity,thankfully,even with some of the flaws with the,characters uh there were,definitely things to keep you satisfied,visually in terms of the cinematography,and how they managed to do that and just,the structure i thought the structure,was really cool so are you guys watching,black,summer season two what is your favorite,zombie show,of all time it could be walking dead it,could be kingdom,thats probably my answer alright guys,ill see you soon,[Music],you

The Red Death Virus (BLACK SUMMER & Z NATION) Explored

[Music],hey guys whats happening nyet here with,film comics explained and is requested,today well be taking a look at the Red,Death virus also known as CN 1 as,featured and z nation and the recently,released black summit television series,so for those of you who dont know,blacks honor is a prequel series to Z,nation that recently dropped on Netflix,that follows a handful of survivors that,attempt to make their way to a safe site,some 10 miles away while z nation picked,up a few years after the zombie epidemic,had ravaged most of the world black,summer takes place roughly six weeks,after the initial release of the red,death virus what I loved about this,series is that unlike other shows like z,nation and The Walking Dead where,everyone seems to know that the way to,take out a zombie was by going for the,head the victims featured in black some,I have no idea how to effectively bring,down the undead giving way to some hard,stomping action scenes that can only be,described as chaotic,now zn1 was essentially the designation,given by the Center for Disease Control,for the virus that was responsible for,the global zombie apocalypse before the,American government and the nation as a,whole was plunged into self-destructive,anarchy in the z nation television,series which was unfortunately cancelled,by the Sci Fi Channel after its fifth,season despite the fact that it was,performing better than the other shows,renewed by the channel its explained,that a Walter curium was responsible for,the creation of virus now Kurian was a,disgraced former director of the,division of infectious disease at the,University of California that ended up,being wanted by Interpol for,manufacturing and selling bioweapon,technology to numerous countries around,the world with little care or thought,about the major ramifications of his,actions,the sinister doctor had in essence,created the virus by gathering numerous,samples from crocodile addicts in New,York patients found in Ebola camps in,Africa a man hed infected with,radiation in an abandoned bioweapons,facility in Kazakhstan as well as,samples from a Haitian man who was found,alive after being buried underground for,21 days and whod remained in a trance,with no semblance of will can you sit up,please,he responds to commands but seems to be,completely unaware of his surroundings,you can lower your arm,turn toward me,lie back down the menacing doctor then,used a blend of these core samples to,synthesize zn1 for a secret project,codenamed Red Death with the aim of,selling the bioweapon to the highest,bidder,while the virus remains secure in,Colorado at a secret lab within Fort,Collins it was eventually transferred to,humans via lab technician named Brandon,Doyle who was patient zero,Doyle was then quarantined and given an,experimental vaccine which stopped him,from turning into a zombie,but this also prevented him from dying,causing his body to decompose until all,that would be left of him was bone red,death then spread like wildfire within,the facility before eventually taken,over the 160,000 plus inhabitants of,Fort Collins and the greater Colorado,area within days turning the entire,region into a black zone which was the,military designation for cities and,areas that had no humans and were,inhabited by only zombies though the,virus was originally blood-borne,requiring direct contact between its and,the cells of the victim caused by bites,and scratches like most world-ending,virus outbreaks the pathogen eventually,mutated to an airborne strain making,containment impossible because of this I,actually think that its likely that,everyone in the world had essentially,become infected with a dormant strain,within weeks and the virus was merely,waiting for the body to die before it,could activate itself and take over the,host much like the wildfire virus,featured in The Walking Dead which Ive,also covered on this channel and will be,leaving a link to below what the bites,and scratches of the infected do to a,healthy person is begin the process of,irreversible contamination as their,blood and saliva which contain an active,strain of the virus begin inducing a,cytokine cascade which is a potentially,fatal immune reaction consisting of a,positive feedback loop between cytokines,and white blood cells which is further,exacerbated by the bacteria that resided,in the mouths of zombies once a host was,infected by Xion one they would begin to,exhibit a number of symptoms including,but not limited to flu-like fevers,cellular necrosis resembling gangrene,that would also cause severe,discoloration of the skin and soon after,the transformation they would begin to,experience an enhanced sense of hearing,a reduction in motor and cognitive,functions as well as violent tendencies,towards an uninfected individual,the infected would also have their red,blood cells increased their oxygen,storage capacity resulting in slower,blood flow and increased muscle,endurance and strength however it should,be noted that due to the cellular,necrosis over time the muscles were,deteriorate and waste away to nothing,due to the damage done to the nervous,system the undead were limited to simple,activities like standing balancing on,two legs walking biting pushing and,pulling similar to small children and we,have no concept or awareness of their,surroundings with the exception of Alvin,Murphy who had been given a vaccine in,the first episode of Z nation which Ill,be discussing later because of the,transformation caused by Red Death the,infected essentially become new mindless,undead beings that did not require,shelter food rest or water to survive,though they still maintained an,unbounded hunger for flesh,unlike the Walking Dead where the,wildfire virus took some time before,taking over its host the transformation,caused by Zn one was near immediate,making it impossible to help anyone that,was bitten even if the bite site was,amputated within seconds Red Death also,created a number of infected fareeds,seen throughout the znation series,including zombie animals the incredibly,fast blasters fighters which were a,hybrid plant zombie type radioactive,zombies Franken Zs which are,essentially mutated zombies with,numerous limbs and of course the heart,to kill mad Zs that had incredible,resilience due to their aggressive,mutation and who needed to be completely,destroyed in order to be stopped the,most unique zombie hybrid however would,have to be Alvin Murphy a former prison,inmate featured Z nation that had been,forcibly given an experimental vaccine,much like Doyle before him directly,after being given the vaccine Murphy who,at that time had been strapped to a,gurney was then attacked by a number of,zombies that bitten eight times the man,who miraculously survived due to the,strain of the vaccine hed been given as,a result of the vaccine its harmonious,integration into his cells Murphy became,more than both human and zombie with his,newfound super-strength,the ability to control other zombies as,well as the power to infect others with,his antibodies which in turn made them a,slave to his will,interestingly as a series progressed,Murphy began to dissociate himself from,the human survivors around him and he,began to sympathize more and more with,the zombies that he also shared a bit of,kinship with I think this has a lot to,do with the circumstances and how he had,become infected and the insistence of,everyone around him that he had to be,experimented on once again as a means of,finding a cure Murphy essentially,becomes a sort of God amongst humans and,zombies featuring the best of both,worlds not only having the intelligence,of humans but also maintaining the,resilience and strength of zombies,that what I really appreciate about both,znation and black summer is that they,try to do something different with the,zombie genre that has proliferated,popular culture not only following the,backstory and journey and survivors most,films and TV shows often do but also,exploring the unique

Everything Wrong with Black Summer (Zombie Sins)

[Music],so its pretty safe to say the military,know fully well what the infection is,since they are doing an eye and skin,check to make sure people arent,infected i cannot wait for them to,somehow get overwhelmed by dumb,slow-moving zombies wait okay theyre,fast but still they have guns why is,this guy giving this couple a full,interrogation when he barely gave anyone,else the time of day even having some,smart ass remarks about not having a gun,so military procedure for a pandemic is,to vet people for signs of infection and,if they find a bite victim are supposed,to punch them and drive off leaving,behind tons of other civilians what,seems like a hammy plot device to have,the mother finder kid again like rick,grimes with carl in the walking dead,seems like those air strikes outside,concluded rather quickly once they got,to safety well i was fully expecting him,to turn while she was cuddling and,cradling her husband but apparently he,has had time to turn within the minute,she walked out of the room this scene,feels so awkward yet hilarious she busts,right through this door while granny is,straight chilling and she barely reacts,or says anything youre lucky you didnt,walk into the room of a prepubescent,team getting one last spanking session,in patrick patrick patrick patrick why,are you screaming patricks name fearing,he may be a zombie now didnt you grab a,knife earlier possibly expecting the,worst it seems that even this early in,the outbreak people know what to expect,a little bit but will still probably be,completely freaking stupid so the zombie,patrick gives up on his wife and,instantly finds the quiet grandma in her,room and bites her why would you slam,the door behind you knowing noise,attracts them in the first place this,zombie hears the sound to the slam door,busts through the glass and starts,chasing his wife again leaving the,grandma to run away with a bite to the,neck do these types of zombies not,finish the job they just get a bite in,and run,well we know head shots are the way to,go now now the scene of her breathing,into his ear nearly ordering him to help,her get to the stadium goes on for the,longest 30 seconds of my life the,soldier agrees to help her and doesnt,even consider that she may have been,bitten while she was being attacked on,the fence this woman speaking purely,korean drags away the deaf guy for some,reason,what the [ __ ] is going on,please,please i thank you please,thank you,thank you okay,okay would you like me in a drive,total stranger walks up says he needs,help you give enough space in the window,for him to reach in at any time and you,let yourself be convinced that not only,can he hit your ride with you but he can,drive the car man youve got what you,deserved and just like that we,transition away from the night of the,living dead reference to lance so we are,dealing with the walking dead like,zombie outbreak where everyone is,infected and will turn into a zombie no,matter what the cause of death unless,the brain is destroyed with the bites,just causing a disease that kills the,host ill go ahead and remove the sin,because i love the dynamic and danger,this can bring up but well see how the,show executes this as it goes on the,zombies in the show sure do give up,pretty fast once the door gets in their,way so they can have some semblance of,how fences and doors work and configure,the way around pretty easily interesting,cant wait to see this dynamic fade in,the coming episodes these two guys dont,hear the zombie girl yelling and,grunting and as she runs towards them,and only react when she is within feet,of them ultimately costing one of them,their lives gotta love people that are,oblivious to sound in a pandemic event,never trust a captured person when they,say they gotta pee the military guards,just say oh man after getting pushed,over and lets the civilians have free,reign past the checkpoint were into,episode two and theres tons of awkward,silence hey,im not gonna rape you at least he is,straightforward we start to spectate a,couple doing some pallet looping with a,zombie before eventually the woman is,attacked with the man not realizing,until moments later the zombie just,growled at him and gives him time to,escape so he could get one more bite in,the woman turns in the span of 20,seconds 20 seconds from the initial bite,the husband from earlier had a bite that,lasted probably a day and he didnt turn,she doesnt even die first shes just,like you know this guy is kinkier than,my husband better switch teams it feels,like these are just a mesh of ideas of,how people would be in martial law but,honestly lazily executed people would,just throw rocks and grocery carts of,fire at any car coming by and they would,have this coordinated with a flammable,cart just in case a car came down the,small town road no zombies around come,on no one gonna address the rear end is,visibly still on fire youre just gonna,leave it like that if zombieland taught,me anything and it wasnt quite a lot,its to buckle up this zombie makes no,noise after climbing on top of the car,from the back just to slightly jump,scare the driver and the audience good,thing they wound up on a long road with,no cars or debris to run into while they,confront this clinger so while this,zombie has the control and dexterity to,grab a hold of the driver while he is,slamming the gas pedal it doesnt dawn,on him at all or even from the start to,just slam the brakes and let gravity,take care of the situation no just gonna,have this scene of him almost biting you,good job bro while she doesnt speak,english lets stop the truck to discuss,and translate directions after being,attacked by people and zombies and being,stalked by a big black truck nothing bad,could happen especially with an already,busted out window and now telling what,debris is in the undercarriage of the,car you know im really getting sick of,these title cards to divide up the,episodes into many chapters it is,ruining the pacing for me and feels kind,of pretentious,wow his girlfriend was quick to resort,to dick sucking while he just offered,food and water be gone,after being stalked attacked and having,a stowaway lets just casually drink and,sing like nothing bad can happen now,that were on the open road,why would you just now put your seat,belts on why would you ram into a,high-rise truck with a minivan youre,going to be doing more damage to your,vehicle than you are to,his i want to say that was shocking but,damn that was hilarious well i might be,going to hell for my sense of humor i,gotta say fasten your [ __ ] seat belt,and keep your eyes on the road i dont,care if somebodys right next to you,slamming into you these zombies turn,after everyone in both cars conveniently,wake up for being unconscious even,though zombies immediately come back,from the dead in other scenes after,these people purposefully tried to ram,you off the road and almost got you,killed in a head-on collision with a,concrete wall i would not be doing them,any favors by keeping the door open,these zombies cant break through this,glass door even though they have been,shown to be able to do that pretty,recently episode 3 and were already,splitting up to look for clues a double,decision of dumb moments curly joe,starts lightly banging on the drum so in,retaliation lets just ram him into the,wall as loudly as possible great,reactive reasoning aint nothing like a,random ass kid to make people question,their rational decision making in a,post-apocalypse you would think four to,five weeks of this zombie stuff would,have you more numb to seeing dead bodies,the death guy runs away after seeing,this for some brain dead reason even,though he demanded to stay in the school,and help the mystery kid she continues,to yell and say hello over and over and,over again in a deserted school do you,want zombies because thats how you get,zombies what kind of trap is that made,by kids trip a victim blow them up,apparently and lock the doorbot and were,in

Black Summer Season 1 (2019) Netflix Series Review

raise your hand if youre getting tired,of the plethora of zombie iterations,that are available to watch I mean dont,get me wrong,there have been some greats in the,classic and even more in recent times I,mean think World War Z Shaun of the Dead,train to Busan even Anna in the,apocalypse when I sat down to watch,black summer on Netflix as I begin,watching it I was like oh I dont know,if Im ready to watch another zombie,series oh Im glad I did,this zombie series is really a fresh,feel for those Zed themed shows I mean,the opening scene is a continuous shot,that lasts about nine minutes and thats,what drew me in I was like wow if,theyre gonna start doing this I think,Im gonna watch just from the filmmaking,standpoint because they really just drew,me in as things are happening and people,are running and its just the camera is,going but its not a shakey cam I loved,it I mean it wasnt like a total,Steadicam but at least I could see what,was going on it wasnt like but you know,all over the place and the series itself,is less about the zombies and more about,the survivors and their struggle to get,to safety season one is eight episodes,long and it is told in a series of short,chapters the pace is quick moving and,the characters are intriguing and so,what that does is that just designs it,to keep you on the edge of your seat and,not get bored as things progress there,are characters in there that I am,totally drawn to and others that I cant,stand at all but theyre all designed,exactly for that purpose also whats,cool is that because the story is told,in a series of chapters we get little,snippets from here and here and as the,story comes together we realize that,this is really just a larger culmination,of events and that we didnt realize,that they were all connected and yet,they are it made the storytelling and,the viewing that much more exciting now,every survivor is trying to get to a,stadium and what they have to do is they,have to get through downtown because at,the stadium the government is supposedly,there to ship them out to transport them,to another safe location whatever that,is but to get through downtown it is,crazy difficult its just overrun with,the undead as the season comes to a,close the last couple episodes our,characters are making their way through,downtown up until this point Ive loved,the series and I made sense to me and,everything has really fallen within the,Canon that theyve set up but then we,get to the last couple episodes and it,just starts to unravel a little bit,theres certain level of unbelievable,ti to it,they make a lot of stupid decisions but,the tension is built such that youre,willing to overlook it a little bit even,though the logic kind of falls apart one,other thing that I like is that the,episodes dont stick to a strict time I,mean some of them are fifty five minutes,some are twenty five minutes and so that,really helps to keep the pace of the,show going now like I said there are,some things that kind of unravel and,there are pieces in the overall story,that just dont make sense or that they,leave out or that they leave unanswered,and while this is a little bit,frustrating in parts of it Im willing,to overlook it because the parts that I,feel that are being left out or that are,being unanswered they dont really add,to the overall story at least that I,know of and so I feel like Im being,told a complete story even though I know,that Im missing like this piece over,here or this piece over here and so Im,kind of okay with those missing parts a,lot of the writers for black summer also,write for the TV shows znation know Ive,never seen that so I dont know if,theyre actually connected or not but I,have seen some rumors that maybe this is,kind of an offshoot of whats going on,in znation I dont know is it a prequel,is it afterwards I again I havent seen,znation so I have no idea now after,watching all eight episodes I dont know,if this is a limited run series or if,theyre gonna bring it back for a season,two Im really good either way if they,do greenlight up for season two though,Ill be there theres no sex or nudity,but there is a lot of profanity and a,whole lot of violence I give black,summer on Netflix four out of five,couches so what is the best zombie movie,or show youve ever seen let me know in,the comments below if you enjoyed this,review please give it a like also dont,forget to share and subscribe Im Chris,this is movies of munchies thanks for,catching with me

Black Summer Netflix Review

what is up sleep fans and welcome back,to my channel today I am out of town so,I will be doing this review in my car,thats right guys another review in my,car I just watched the brand new series,on Netflix black summer and today we are,going to talk about it if you guys have,seen this series let me know in the,comments down below did you like it did,you not like it were you disappointed,and today I want to tell you guys my,thoughts and whether it is worth a binge,or whether it is worth a try or not in,this show is a very interesting concept,now yes it is zombies which we see a lot,of nowadays and in a way the market is a,tad bit oversaturated so it takes a lot,for something whether its a movie or TV,show to give us something that delivers,and to give us something a tad bit,different and I do think thats,important when youre bringing us a show,especially after seeing things like,World War Z The Walking Dead what more,can they do with the zombie universe and,this is an interesting show because it,is set in the Z Nation universe so I was,excited to see what they were going to,bring what they could offer and lets,talk about black summer so a mother,searches for her daughter after,civilization collapses due to a zombie,outbreak lets start off with what I,really liked about this show first off,the camerawork the movement the,cinematography the entire way that it,focuses on our characters and follows,them on their journey especially in that,first episode one you have all of these,different backstories and away for,certain characters being set up as they,shift from character to character to,character and I really like the way they,started this show out to give you,something to set your expectations off,of and then from there it should take,off Ill get into that in just a second,but the camera movement as well as,youre following these characters the,overhead shot in that first episode,where everyone just starts coming out of,their houses running down the street it,really built up the tension in my,opinion and I loved the camerawork it,was probably my favorite aspect of this,show and while I really liked the early,seasons of The Walking Dead and I,havent watched the last few seasons but,when I started to fall off is when the,Walking Dead started to veer into the,melodramatic territory with certain,kooky villains and just a lot of,dialogue that didnt matter in the grand,scheme of things a lot of repeating,itself this show is like The Walking,did when it wasnt as good just without,all of the melodrama and without that,bloated feeling this is a very simple,show its about characters that are,trying to get to a place and they all,start meeting up but do not get too,connected actually you should get,connected because thats the entire,point of the show is to get connected to,these characters but I am warning you,right now without spoilers it doesnt,matter who it is none of these,characters are safe whether its a main,player a side character it doesnt,matter this show takes risks in terms of,picking off people one by one and it,does that Im not saying everybody dies,because of course we have to follow our,characters until the end but which,characters are we following and which,ones are we sticking with thats for you,guys to find out and it was one of the,more entertaining and exciting elements,of the show now lets get into the,actual narrative where this story goes,it is a bit familiar more familiar than,predictable from a plot sense I think it,is predictable but like I said some,characters they will get picked off and,you do not see it coming so I cant say,the entire series or at least the first,season is predictable and it is a show,that Im excited to see more of because,I like this universe and I really like,the tone in the feel of this show my big,problem was just the narrative of season,one it felt like something we have seen,before and it felt a bit too bleak for,me not that this show shouldnt be bleak,because it is a show about zombies,chasing people bathrooms killing them I,just didnt gravitate towards characters,like I wanted to in the first episode I,started to get attached but as the show,went on it just felt like it was,slightly repeating itself and it mistook,certain elements of filmmaking to make,up for a good narrative and I mean that,by technically I think this show is,really well done I like the practical,effects I love the character actors,playing the zombies because theyre,getting into their role as they should,as they do in a show like The Walking,Dead I hate to keep comparing it to a,series like that because you know,everybody and their reviews are going to,do that but it is the Walking Dead its,like the standard of all zombie shows,and even movies at this point so you,have to compare to the early seasons,anyways and Im doing that and Im not,saying black summer is a horrible show,because its not but it is something,that I just felt like there was an,element,missing mostly from the characters and,the interactions I didnt feel as much,as I wanted to feel towards the people,that we were focused on throughout the,entire story and by the time you get to,the end you see a lot of the plot,elements coming and when you get there,you are satisfied in a way but then,again its just it dont feel so,familiar and Im not taking away from,anyone who enjoyed season one because,like I said Im excited to see where,they go in season two and I do think,this show could get better thats the,thing I think the show should go up from,here because I dont think they executed,on every single element that they tried,to execute on in season one and they,just didnt take very many chances you,have a show based in a universe that is,very entertaining and very cool and this,really is the start of this event,happening and it reminds me of the movie,that I just watched last night the,silence which wasnt very good and that,movie was about the start of this big,post-apocalyptic event happening and it,was completely and utterly underwhelming,from a story aspect and a character,aspect now this show is way better,handled and more well crafted you can,tell the direction is a lot better in,this show compared to that movie but,even then they just didnt get me into,the characters like I wanted to get into,them especially after those first two,episodes when they really had a really,good establishment but they never really,kept me hooked now the good thing about,season 1 is that every episode varies in,length and theyre not all like 45,minutes to an hour long there are some,episodes that are like 20 or 30 minutes,long and I love that I love how the,directors can sit back and say you know,what we are going to do what we want to,do our own episode links if an episode,needs to be 20 minutes boom its 20,minutes if it needs to be longer then it,can be longer and thats just another,reason why I think the show is worth,watching because the length here is not,a problem even the pacing is not a,problem I think the show was well paced,like I said the direction the crew the,people behind the camera I think they,did a good job I just think this story,was a tad bit weak and something that we,have seen multiple times before,thankfully I thought the acting was,solid so that did help it,be a guys at the end of the day heres,what Ill say about black summer its a,good start,to this future show that I think will,continue I think a lot of people are,going to watch this and like it just,enough to stick around for season 2 and,I do think it could get better unlike,the Walking Dead that started out so,strong and progressively got a little,bit worse,in my opinion I think this show could do,the opposite it starts out on an okay,note and continues to get better because,I do like where the story is headed,especially after that final episode,which will leave a lot of people kind of,dry but all this things being said Im,still gonna go pause get black summer,its 65% I think its a solid first,season and I do want to see mor

Black Summer Season 2 Netflix Series Review

In 2019, I was extremely,surprised by Black Summer,,it was a zombie show,that I figured out,later was kind of a light prequel,to Z Nation.,And I had fun with Black Summer,because it was quick moving,,intense and highly engaging.,The second season is arriving.,So does it retain,what made the first season fun,or does it lose its luster?,Winter comes with cold blooded,new challenges during,the zombie apocalypse,as frantic scavengers and violent,militias battle the dead,and the desperate. Season one left off,with some of our main characters,making it to the stadium,where , most importantly, Rose,is reunited with her daughter, Anna,,who she was separated,at the very beginning of the show.,Season two picks up a few months,after the first ends.,And while there are some questions,about how the characters,got where they are,,especially in one particular character.,I mean, the show does,continue its trademark,long take action sequences,where the camera follows the action,no matter where it goes.,Now, Im not sure,if these are actually long takes,,but at the very least,,theyre edited to feel like,theyre continuous takes.,The camera operators must,be stunt professionals,because they do perform some crazy action,to follow the characters,as they move through the intense scenes.,And the actors move through,wild action sequences and theyre running here,and there, overcoming,obstacles and dangers,and a lot of the time without any dialog.,And I think this helps,to keep the scene moving.,But they go in and out of buildings,,through doors, walls, windows,,and all the while,the camera is right there,to capture the action,,which then puts us right,in the middle. ,The small vignette story format also continues,where we have a black screen,and then a chapter title,to give a vague description of what,the following sequence,is going to contain.,Sometimes the story is told out of order,where we watch a sequence happen,and then later in the episode,we revisit that scene,but from a whole different perspective.,Or we watch all the events,that led up to that moment,sSo we have a full understanding,of whats going on.,Its just not in chronological order.,Now, this season takes some moments,to dive deeper into,a few of the characters,,and that helps to build out their depth,and make them more relatable.,And if theyre not more relatable,,at least theyre more understandable.,Now the drama is still surprisingly high.,I found myself really invested,in a few of the key players,and I was sucked into their well-being.,There are some over,the top moments or even characters,that youd classify as clichéd,apocalyptic antagonists.,But somehow they still fit,in this crazy world thats been built,and they dont detract any from the fun.,Now,,sometimes it felt like,there were a few of them,that had just been waiting around,for this to happen.,And then when it did, boom,,they get to do their happy,dance and go all out,militia nut.,I loved Spears,character arc in this season.,Hes a military guy who is with Rose,and Sun through much of season one.,Here we get a lot more of his backstory,and he plays the part really well.,Hes mysterious and untrusting,,but he opens up and is vulnerable,at just the right moment.,And the characters,are all on a journey to get to a place,where they believe,is going to afford them safety.,Im not sure how they know its there,or that it even exists.,But the story of hope,also keeps them going.,Now,,some of the scenarios,are pretty predictable, but,because of how the show,breaks up the sequences,,it makes those scenarios,still engaging and exciting,,even if we know whats going,to come up at some point.,Theres also holds true,because sometimes weve been shown,the aftermath of a sequence,,but then the episode works,to show us everything,that led up to that point.,I really like that the show works,to give the characters moments,of safety and security.,And what I like is that then,the characters, theyre,faced with decisions,of whether to stay,in the safety and shelter,or to venture out into the unknown.,Now, as to be expected,in a show about zombies,,I mean, there is a,crazy amount of violence,and for the most part, its quite brutal.,But through most of it,,we dont see the execution,of the violence.,There are a couple of times that we do,watch a head explode,or something insane like that,,but typically we watch,a character wield,a weapon, say, like a brick,,and then they slam it down.,But we dont see the skull,actually being smashed.,Either way, though, if youre,looking for a show with some violence,,this is a good one.,Its not yet to the violent,degree of Gangs of London,,but its working its way there.,Now, I think the weakest portion of the show,is with the character development.,Well, we do get some really good,info on a couple of the characters.,There are even more,that we dont have any background on,,and some of these are,more of the major players.,I still enjoyed the scenery,in the season, too,,even though the show,is called Black Summer.,This now is taking place,during the winter,and the characters are traversing,through mountainous landscapes,that are just filled with trees,and they are just covered in snow.,Well, the trees and the characters,,its cold and desolate,,but it still has its beauty to it.,And I especially like when the camera,will give us a wide shot,to show the grandeur,and space that a character,has to navigate.,Now, one thing,this show certainly taught me,is that if Im going along,and Im approached by someone,who wants a ride,,they instantly get,the double tap to the head.,The apocalypse tends to make people crazy,and act without regard for anybody else.,So out of self-preservation,,you got to go.,Overall, this is an intense,and heart pounding ride.,But the show does vary its pace to allow,for some slower and quieter moments.,And in those we get to dive more,into our characters, backstories,and their psyches.,There are eight episodes,and most of them are in that 45,ish minute range.,And I found it really easy to binge,and was caught up in the drama,and the urgency that,every episode brought.,And they were all different, too.,And while some characters,that were introduced in this season,could use more development,,the season was still pretty engaging.,And while the exposition,is not groundbreaking,,it still is just,a really fun time in front of the TV.,Theres no sex or nudity with a whole,heaping of profanity,and, of course, violence.,I give season two of Black Summer,four out of five couches.,So are you a fan of the show?,Do you have a favorite character?,I really like Spears,,but I think my favorite is Sun.,But Id like to know yours,in the comments below.,If you enjoyed this review,,please give it a like.,Also, dont forget,to share and subscribe.,Im Chris.,This is Movies and Munchies.,Thanks for couching with me.

BLACK SUMMER Season 2 Ending Explained | Series Timeline Breakdown And Full Spoiler Review

welcome to the heavy spoilers show,im your host paul and this video were,breaking down what the ending of black,summer season 2,and trails this series has got a lot,going on with it,and in this video well be recapping the,story talking about the final few scenes,and giving our review of the netflix,show if you dont want spoilers then,going past this part of the video,is a grave mistake and youll just be,slowing us down,make sure you like the video if youre,not brain dead and of course dont,forget to subscribe for videos like this,each and every day,without the way thank you for clicking,this now lets get into black summer,season 2.,now in case you need a recap of the,first season then for the first part of,the video well be picking your brains,by walking dead the journey that the,survivors went on,so its really bad puns now ill also be,going through the plot of season two,beat by beat,but if you just want to skip ahead to,the ending then time codes are below,now season one started after the,outbreak of a deadly virus,this turned everyone into undead flash,eating monsters,that would stop at nothing for some,finger food,through the eyes of rose and several,other survivors we saw the rise of the,zombies first,hand and we followed her as she,attempted to rescue her daughter anna,after fighting through thick and thin,rose and her group managed to make their,way to a stadium,that had been advertised as being a safe,haven initially it seemed like a dead,end,however her daughter and several other,survivors emerged,and we cut to black now black summer,season 2,should be called black winter as its a,completely different landscape for the,most part,but its just as tense and nail-biting,as the previous entry,whereas the prior season had people,simply battling against the undead,and the occasional school child season 2,is very much about the group going,against the elements,however it also throws in the element,that when the chips are down,humanity will very much turn on itself,in order to survive,humans are self-centered and selfish for,the most part and seeing how they will,happily step over one another,just to get five more minutes of life,makes for some incredible moments,nowhere is this exemplified more than in,the opening of the,show we join lance who you might,remember from last season,and within the first two minutes hes,killed by a couple named luke and sophie,so that they can take his car in the,first season he had an,entire episode where he was constantly,chased by one of the undead,it was sheer nightmare fuel and he,somewhat reverses this when he becomes a,zombie,as he chases luke until the character,crashes his car in the opening,getting rid of such a big main character,early on after all he was trying to do,was help people,is a brilliant way to start the season,and it lets us know instantly that,humanity will be the real threat here,this nail in the coffin is hammered home,when we cut to four months later,and see a sole survivor in the snow,being chased by a zombie,he makes it to a house and mercilessly,he and the walker are shot by a sniper,who we later learn is actually rose we,then see two men fighting in the snow,during the midst of an ambush and,whatever preconceptions you had it,becomes very clear,early on that this is going to be about,man versus man,versus dead man so bad now theres a,line in the show in which they say,nobody is good anymore and i think that,this perfectly sums up the whole season,most shows and movies have a macguffin,that the characters and villains want to,get a hold of,but black summer is very much based,around making it to a certain location,the first season was of course about,reaching the stadium and this one is,about making it to an airstrip,if we go in chronological order then we,pick up with rose,anna sun and spears out on the road,attempting to get there,however theyre forced to make decisions,that split them up,but their paths do cross later on in the,series now son attempts to save spears,who rose was ready to leave behind,but in doing so shes captured by a,group led by a man named ray,rose and anna make it to a house in the,wilderness and here theyre given,sanctuary by a group of survivors in,sight,however we know from the way that the,story is told that she and anna end up,being the only two survivors there,and theyre willing to kill to keep a,hold of it the house is a great setting,and in the season it perfectly,demonstrates why rose goes from someone,whos willing to trust others,to someone whos ready to turn her guns,on them after one of the survivors heads,out to get medicine for his mother,he doesnt return and his brother sonny,starts to suspect those inside,are plotting against him he commits,murder which in turn births a zombie,and this forces rose to kill everyone,left in the house,the only survivor is a man named freddy,who is hiding up a tree after going out,to get wood,but such a grand location on the market,is quickly sought after,we see that rey has learned of the,airstrip too and he and his group decide,to storm the house,elsewhere on the road spears comes face,to face with a man named brathwaite,and we learn about his past spearss,life before season 1,was always ambiguous and all that we,knew about him was that he was a,criminal,however this is cleared up and we learn,that hes actually called james,james or rather little james used to,carry out hits for his brother,big james who i have no idea why they,were both called james if theyre,brothers but,never mind anyway little james tried to,kill brathwaite when he was younger,but he of course survived unlike most of,the characters in the show though,brathwaite and james decide to let,bygones be bygones,and the pairport ways realizing that the,future is more important than the past,now unlike most of the characters in the,show because they choose to do this,rather than turning on each other the,pair survive their journey is laced with,lots of metaphors,and though might be reaching in the,wilderness they do see a black rider on,top of a white horse,which is thought to be the,personification of death when we look at,religion,we never learn the identity of this,rider and though this mysterious figure,stalks them throughout the landscape,they never end up dicing with death,brathwaite even refuses to shoot him,when he has a chance,and if our metaphor is correct then this,might be why hes spared,his journey ends with him and james,coming across the horse by a stream,and james almost of mice and mens him,but he lets him live,its a really emotional scene that shows,the character arc james has gone on,and i really hope that next time we do,come across breath wait and the,perspectives are switched several times,as are the actions with rose receiving,sanctuary in the house before taking it,over herself,and denying it from others the show,jumps back and forth between the time,periods,showcasing the origins for certain,characters and the aftermath of their,actions,i very much felt that this had a last of,us part 2 vibe in that we had two clear,sides in the show,that we both saw things from the,perspective of though it would be easy,to say why one was good and the other,was the villain,both were clearly doing what they had to,survive making for a really,thought-provoking narrative that would,constantly have you switching sights,after losing the house rose and co head,out into the dead snow,with a man named boone he promises,theres a magical place where,on our way there yes with the food all,under one roof its called elk valley,lodge now here,rose anna and boone find a great setup,and they decide to lay low there,james arrives on foot after hearing,about it from brathwaite,theres a very tense exchange but,ultimately both have come to accept what,they are,and who theyve become even if they,dont like them james has realized that,he is in fact dying,and that he can either turn into a,zombie or end it before then,we learn that hes been attempting to,take his own life
