The show touches on the usual themes that underlie such stories-male ego, Western hubris, the absolute power privileged officers wield over poor recruits-but it does so with rare style, intelligence and detail.
We're all still caught up in a mad, self-perpetuating cycle of fear. If that's your entry point to The Terror, so be it, but it doesn't have to be. The terror is many things, and one of them is bound to get you.
The Terror isn't trying to impress its prestigeness upon you by making everything as nasty and extreme as possible. These may be humans under almost unimaginable pressure, but they're still recognizably human.
(The) history-horror hybrid may be the reason the show doesn't quite come to life despite the luxuries of the production and the generally high quality of the performances (particularly by Mr. Harris).
A lavish event series that could be called 'Master and Commander Meets The Thing.' It's not quite as exciting as that pitch makes it sound, but it is a show that builds up steam around the fourth episode.
