Servant is undoubtedly one of the strangest and utterly mesmerizing series you’ll ever watch and season two finally begins shedding light on so many of the questions haunting us from the first. Thanks for listening to our pleas, AppleTV+! Unrelenting from the first episode to the last. There is no other show like this anywhere.
The most perplexing family is back and just when you think they’re starting to move towards healthy reality, delusion and ignorance pull them right back into a world of heightened emotions and pain. This time, however, they inflict it, constantly pushing their own boundaries to a place there may be no coming back from.
Cards on the table, season one took me two tries to get through but after making it past episode three I could not stop! The second installment of this imaginative story grips you that much harder. M. Night Shyamalan FINALLY gave us what we knew he was capable of, creating something that is easily among his very best and his stunning cast continues to blow us away in every scene.
Visually, the show pushes the envelope with creative, elegant and off-putting angles that keep you fully engaged throughout. Our cinematographers masterfully play with light and shadow to elevate the genre even further. One of the most visually creative shows on any streamer or network.
The writing is wonderfully unique and precise. Somehow they manage to deliver thirty minute episodes full of incredible content while always moving the story forward but rarely making us feel rushed. There’s a talent in that. This show could easily pull off the hour long structure of dramas but opts instead for the thirty minute sitcom length and makes it work.
I’m amazed to be promoting a Shyamalan show with such fervor but it really surprised me. Once I accepted what was going on as well as the fact that not everything will be clear at once I was able to hop on this rollercoaster ride and milk it for all it’s worth. An absolute must watch in my book so what are you waiting for? Go check it out. You won’t regret it! And yes, this season is better than the first…
