Why should you watch The Silent Sea?
The Silent Sea won’t disappoint you if you like feasting your eyes on every sci-fi movie in existence. The eight-episode long series show a probable future of earth with twists not much relatable to the present world. The most treasured resource, water vanishing from our world is horrifying as it is a possible future of the earth. The director has managed to give cold feet to the audience with the picturesque horror! Sounds peculiar but it is what the impact of the series does.
Even though some of the portrayals are unscientific the flavours of the series are not off-putting. If you are a science buff the series might have some illogical stances here and there but the cast has managed to keep our attention grabbed throughout the series. The execution of every character is tremendous. Not a single actor had an unjustified portrayal.
The graphics designing team has given no scope to question their abilities. They have pulled up a fantastic illustration of the moon and the other fictional stuff playing an integral role in the show. The screenplay is worth praising if you oversee some of the indefinite theories related to science. So, if you want to soothe your eyes with an interesting storyline then The Silent See for the weekend won’t be a bad idea.
