Re: Snowpiercer [Drama, Action, Sci-Fi]

I'm certainly enjoying it, just have the season finale to watch in the next few days.

Re: Snowpiercer [Drama, Action, Sci-Fi]

I watched it all and thought it was ok, despite so much of the science was complete nonsense.  One of the silly things that stood out for me the most was how quickly they moved from the front of the train and back again so quickly.  1001 carriages?  Yeah, right!

A rubber chicken with a pulley in the middle...

Yes! Or the train acceleration seen in the final episode. Or asking the viewer to believe that the railway switch is just going to work in such extreme cold with zero maintenance, when in reality fire is being used against ice or they use stuff like jet-engine-powered snow blowers to remove ice and snow from tracks and switching areas! (/rant)

Still, it's a good show. cool

Re: Snowpiercer [Drama, Action, Sci-Fi]

Worst garbage i've seen in a long time, just the concept is impossible to get behind. The World most brilliant scientists conclude that a train with no track maintenance and avalanches everywhere was the last hope of humanity? Why not design a spaceship with the same eternal engine? They had the technology to cool off an entire planet, so a big spaceship shouldn't be that hard to make.

And why is it that they let the invaders live? It is not explained in the first 3 episodes why they are essential? If they just killed them off, they would have no problems with riots and the like. Meh... Not for me i guess.

Last time I checked perpetual motion is impossible because of the laws of the physics, so, if engine is a fairy tale, why bother to check science for the rest? big_smile

Also if you have a perpetual engine, idea to use it on a train itself is stupid, just produce heat and live somewhere in a cave smile

I watched it just for the drama, they took a shitty movie and made an ok tv series, will watch season 2 as well.
