Station Eleven

Station Eleven ★★★★½

I have a bone to pick with whomever assigns the director credits for mini-series on here or where ever they get it from. Helen Shaver and Jeremy Podeswa directed 3 episodes each. Lucy Tcherniak and Hiro Murai each directed 2. And yet, Hiro Murai is the only director listed because he directed the 1st episode? This is madness and truly unfair to the 3 other directors who did just as much and more. Grr.

I think this series was just what I needed to process and deal with some of the enormous anxiety and grief of the past 2 years. I am so grateful for it and especially for the finale which made me ugly cry in a way I didn't realize I still had in me.

The entire cast is tremendous, but whew, this show doesn't work without Mackenzie Davis. I wondered if she'd ever get a chance to shine the way she did in Halt and Catch Fire, and I'm happy to say she glows.
