Based on the evidence of the first six episodes, it's an adaptation that badly misapprehends the point of its source material; it doesn't even have the decency to be an interesting failure.
August 5, 2020
This new TV series is a pale imitation of Bong Joon-ho's brilliant dystopian thriller.

Fueled by enigmatic performances, especially by Diggs and Connelly, Snowpiercer eventually proves to be worthy of your time, but as more and more quality TV shows are announced and streamed, Snowpiercer is under the threat of getting lost.

Snowpiercer delivered a solid first installment, and I can't wait to see where this season will takes us.
June 19, 2020
Its concept is solid, its performances are admirable, but neither of those can hide the fact that Snowpiercer takes too long to get good, and by the time anything interesting happens, the ride is already over.
June 17, 2020
Snowpiercer, for all its delays and production issues, is arriving at exactly the right time for its narrative to really hit home for anyone who might be sitting at home and watching it.

The most enthralling part of this show so far is absolutely the world building. The more we learn about the train, its factions, its underbelly, the more immersive it becomes.

What works here is the way "Snowpiercer" the series expands on the science-fiction fueled dystopia of the film

You'd have thought the last place you'd want to set an ambitious and sprawling epic was a train carriage that resembles a claustrophobic toilet pipe.
June 8, 2020
Though set inside a superfast train condemned to circle the globe on a never-ending loop, Snowpiercer is a show that changes direction and speed with whiplash-inducing frequency.
June 8, 2020
At its heart, it feels like a police procedural or old school, episodic sci-fi a la Battlestar Galactica or Falling Skies... Still, this definitely has plenty of positives.
June 5, 2020
The show is as imperfect as the humanity that it depicts

At least in this first episode, the leading actors lack the strength of the attributed roles. [Full review in Spanish]

An original idea becomes vulgar and cliche. Snowpiercer turns into something like CSI: Trans-Siberian. [Full Review in Spanish]
May 27, 2020
TNT's Snowpiercer does not live up to the expectation of the film it is based off of, but it truly attempts to be something radically different. It manages to evolve a sometimes stale murder mystery plot into a enthralling revolutionary story.

Exposition barrels along faster than the train itself ("Just making a quick stop at Gun on the Mantelpiece Station!"). In short, it's perfect. Sit back, relax and take in the trash.

It seems like a projectile moving at full speed toward disaster. [Full Review in Spanish]

The desperate cry of "Guys! I'm the last Australian!" is probably not meant to be funny.

May 21, 2020
I think it's a fabulous premise, realised here with less anger than in the film, but equal wit and imagination and the same clarity of setting.

Although there are some predictable moments and familiar tropes, this is one show you won't want to miss.
