Review of series «Call. Season 2»

Passed nine months since the power in the Call was grasped by the Terrestrial Republic, and almost all residents reconciled to independence loss. Even the former mayor Amanda Rouzuoter (Juli Benz) does not try to revolt. On the contrary, it quite got used to a role of a soderzhatelnitsa of a brothel which inherited from the lost sister. Meanwhile Deytak Tarr (Tony Karran) tries to get out of a concentration camp where it concluded for murder of the emissary of the Republic, his wife Stama (Jamie Murray) masters management of family criminal syndicate, and the former sheriff Nolan (Grant Bouler) wanders across America after searches of the foster daughter the Irises (Stephanie Leonidas) who has disappeared at the height of capture of the Call.

From all alien languages which sound in series, languages каститанов (a family Tarr) and иратиентов (Iris) are in details worked only. Other adverbs are only fluently planned

Last year the first season of "Call" was advertized with such scope as if the former founders «On the brink of the Universe» and "Startrek’s" sequels, having united, thought up the best fantastic show of all times and the people. On the Internet even started ambitious multiplayer game of Defiance, that the audience could not only watch life terraformirovanny newcomers of Earth, but also participate in battles for fragments of spaceships which brought some alien races on our "ball".

When "Call" reached TV screens, he should disappoint – too for much from it waited. But as soon as the fog of spectator offense dissipated, the series appeared to pretty curious shows which crossed a fantasy to a western and have represented the city on border of civilizations where people and newcomers try to get on and create the new world equal in rights. Intrigues round the secret and obvious power in the city were the most interesting part of the first season of "Call", and all essential characters took feasible part in these intrigues.

Like gnomes from novels Terri Pratchetta, representatives of alien race либерата in "Call" it is magnificent бородаты irrespective of a floor

It would seem, screenwriters of show in the second season should not break the internal device of the Call, and to complicate and deepen passions boiling in the city. But instead they, as preference players playing a mizer, dumped trumps from a hand – got off shaky city democracy, entered in the Call ferro-concrete dictatorship and did not begin to force to organize heroes resistance to aggressors. What as a result? The former leader of fraction of people of Earth Makkoli vegetates in mine, the former leader of fraction of newcomers Tarr suffers that in a concentration camp, on the compelled pension (Stama does not allow it to head again syndicate), Amanda wipes glasses in a bar brothel and waves away from courtings of the new mayor (enough stinker, but not the supervillain), and Nolan who has come back to the city turns into the errand boy on service of the Republic and in one of series tortures the newcomer in very brutal way. The newcomer, however, partly deserves it. But all the same – not business of the protagonist of show for the senior teenagers to be engaged in so vile things.

And how the vivifying intrigues feeding dramatic nature of "Call" in the first season? There are no they. Did not survive at dictatorship. A clan Tarr, however, held brand, and his internal intrigues – Stama against Deytak, Christie against Alak – just that it would be desirable to see from all second season. That is deepening of earlier planned conflicts based on contradictions between terrestrial and alien customs. Unfortunately, Tarrov supported nobody, and against their fascinating family wars life of other heroes seems a ridiculous and depressive koposheniye with no specific aim and sense.

More strongly all of us disappointed the Iris. In the ending of the first season it gave the soul to an alien deity (well, not absolutely to a deity, but it is a spoiler!), to save life of the father. Therefore it spent the second season as the zombie, with horror, but implicitly executing the multistage "divine" plan which threatens all planet, but to its culmination does not touch almost anybody from protagonists.

From the dramaturgic point of view of the Iris with the same success could disappear at all from show that then suddenly to return in the ending as the horseback rider of the Apocalypse. Because the main character should be in the center of events and make independent decisions, instead of колупаться under a foreign pointer on the subject periphery waiting for final special effects. Let even this kolupaniye turned out quite intriguing, with pair of unexpected scenary turns.
