At a time like this, it might be interesting to wonder just how the world might look if it froze over entirely. We’ll have the upcoming Snowpiercer TV series to thank for that, when it premieres on 17 May on TNT.
The live-action TV adaptation of the popular French graphic novel by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette features a star-studded cast, including the likes of Jennifer Connelly (Alita: Battle Angel, Top Gun: Maverick), Daveed Diggs (Star Wars Resistance), Mickey Summner (Marriage Story), Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings), and Steven Ogg (Grand Theft Auto V, Westworld).
For the uninitiated, Snowpiercer takes place over seven years, after the world has literally become a frozen wasteland, with its remaining denizens living in a gargantuan train that literally circles the globe.
Its main themes centre around social inequality, survival of the fittest, and political intruigue. If this show can pull those themes off, it will certainly shape up to be quite an interesting drama to binge on.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
