Tv Season Info
Unsurprisingly, the Dutch appear significantly more committed to the utopian project.
"Utopia" at least is likely to survive for an entire season. Few of TV's notorious disasters even earned that much grace.
So far, Utopia has done a good job of catering to fans of reality-TV arguments, sex and blurred-out nudity.
Even as Utopia promises to never, ever live up to its name, its funhouse-mirror reflections of the fault lines-religion, class, politics-in our own larger, obviously imperfect society make for fascinating TV, if only occasionally.
Utopia was promising before it began, but the execution undid all that promise within the first episode.
