The Passage: Season 1 Reviews
That said, this series is a real stinker and needs to be cancelled ASAP.
It is not even close to the books which were excellent.
This is a horror series about the litteral end of the world. Amy NLN is not really aware of here power until the end of the first book. She is not even really a major character until the end of the last book. The story moves through her, it is not about her.
I agree that production costs probably made it impossible to portray the virals as the horrific creatures they are in the books, but the show dumbs them down way too much to be effective or even remotely scary.
This is a classic case of a story that is too long too be a movie and too short to be a TV series. It should have been a miniseries on a cable or streaming network, who could do it justice.
