Dispatches From Elsewhere – a review


Well, it has been a while since the last post. Let’s be honest, this blog is catatonic at best. It will be useful once again because I really have to set up a review. Yep, I know that everybody and their cats are doing this stuff every day, and I know for sure that you don’t need to read another piece like this one. What you need is to see something worth your time and your money.

Think about what’s going on for a while. Great series everywhere, with all-star casts and enough FX to sink a battleship. Can you name without googling the last time the story impress you for real? Then again, can you remember the last time you see an episode without understanding what will come next? Originality is the name of the game if you want to make an impression in this market, and the team that delivered this product scored big time.


The usual factors are all in place, of course. People like Sally Fields and Richard E. Grant are granted to give acting lessons anytime, and I have to say that Andr√® Benjamin really improved as an actor. I’ve never seen before Jason Siegel and Eve Lindley, both of them delivered their roles with a loud “bang!”. Add to the mix a spoonful of good characters, and you have it. You see, people are key here. And this will be the only piece of spoiler you will find here.

You see, I can’t tell you the story. Nor can I explain how much everything you will see or hear is connected with all the other elements. I can affirm, loud and clear, that this serial is much different from its competitors. Just remember the only hint I wrote in the previous paragraph and try your luck with this little gem. Odds are that you will thank me after the end.

Still here? Go away, this blog has to return to its beauty sleep.
