Did You Know?


As seen on the Wilford Industries world map that is on display in the hospitality rooms and in the opening title sequence, the route of the train is around the coastlines of the majority of continents, excluding Greenland and Northern Europe (Great Britain and the Scandinavian countries). This implies that there is some kind of a connection between the continents, potentially the frozen oceans. See more »

Definitely intrigued
19 May 2020 | by hayleyscomettSee all my reviews

It's not bad. I gave a 7 with the potential for higher numbers as this progresses. Not sure why others gave such harsh reviews and low numbers. Geeesh give a new show a chance! I never saw the movie, so I have no comparison to offer. For a first episode I'm intrigued enough to want to see more. Isn't that what most want from a pilot episode? Plenty of characters and potential for expanding storylines. The hour went by very quickly and previewed the upcoming season at the end of the episode. If you liked the Hunger Games this seems to be a similar vibe, although more gritty.
