Why did the monster have to be muh ancient legend ghost dad instead of abominable snowman or some crazy ass monster like the thing. That was my problem, not the monster itself, but what the monster was. It's like if predator wasn't an alien hunting for sport, and instead was the ghost of an ancient jungle man who hunts down those on muh homeland. It becomes lame as fuck when you find out exactly what it is, where as a lot of movie monsters you just know what they can do what they look like and maybe their motivation.

Either should have had cool ice monster or no monster, fuck this show.

>>116518169
He’s a fantastic portrayal of a sociopath. He appears genuinely charming on the onset and his instability only surfaces during key moments with his character and often in subtle ways. Statements he makes or bizarre looks he gives people, unwarranted self importance, etc.

Also to answer your question OP its the same reason Master and Commander is mostly overlooked now, it’s a movie about boats. That automatically and disengages all females from liking it. Only men enjoy sailing and stories about boats unless it’s Titanic which is a shitty movie about a shitty boat.
>>
>>116521259
Inuit mythology isn’t consistent with modern storytelling structure and Tuunbaq was representative of the entire region to the white man. It can’t be fully understood by them just like the land itself. That was barren, uninhabitable wasteland to the whites and they never fully comprehended how natives lived there or why they’d live there.
>>
>>116512811
they either should've made the monster just a particularly large bear amped up by the crew's collective delirium or at least give it a better design, practically every Google result for Tuunbaq that's not the snow one is better, or make it something else entirely, like that snow Hassan

It’s really not important, it’s just the Inuit mythology. It also doesn’t apply to the show because in the book the Tuunbaq is genuinely invincible and can not be killed and is barely even “real” in the sense that it can even be physically harmed. Absolutely nothing can do it any permanent or even temporary damage, Gore blasts it point blank with a rifle and the round doesn’t even hit it, it just phases through it while Goodsir watches.

He didn’t, he fucked it up. He noticed the shaman they shot and later Silence had no tongue and put two and two together. But like a sociopath he jumps the gun rather stupdly with a half formed plan only a mentally broken person would be so confident in.

>>116524178
Because when the book was written they never found either ship and there was still a lot of mystery surrounding it, same reason there wasn’t a vampire hanging out in Crozier’s bed when he burns the Terror himself (this actually happens in the book).

There’s less mystery to the mystery now than there was when he wrote it I think, so they probably changed it. Also it was AMC making it, and they probably figured normies wouldn’t like a monster that just completely buttfucks everybody, gets no “comeuppance”, is completely incomprehensible, and isn’t even something Crozier should want to kill. They excised Crozier’s religious history and own backstory about his dream seeing, which again would’ve put people off. It’s still a good show, but the book does a much better job painting the land around them as so different from their origin that it might as well be a fucking alien planet, and how the evil of the place won’t die and literally seems to make nightmares manifest as reality. In the book the Arctic is portrayed as outright otherworldly. This was how people saw it back in the day. It only makes sense if you put yourself in the mindset of a superstitious 19th century Englishman trying to not die in what would seem to you like frozen extension of literal Hell itself.

>>116523187
>Titanic
Excellent post. I would add that, while Titanic has a ship in it, it's not really a ''boat movie'', because it lacks the camaraderie, or the adventure factor to it.
The ship is too massive, and while it has some typical scenes of a boat movie, it most definetely is not, because females can quote and understand it.
>>
>>116524319
Non-straights cannot survive even on everyone else.
>>
>>116524562
It’s not bland imo, just not as weird and out there as the book which does get super fucking weird at times. Tuunbaq still functions as a representation of their inability to coexist with the land. And yeah, there is a scene at the end where Crozier stumbles upon the drifting Terror now free of ice and finds a corpse with “rat teeth” in his bed. It gets up and starts coming towards him when he turns his back and he’s able to recognize using his weird spirit vision that it really is there, but he knows it will only hurt him if he turns to face it, so he calmly walks out and burns the ship down. You never learn exactly what it was but imo it was the leftover agony of his dead and dying crew.

Ironically certain parts of the story Simmons wrote are MORE possible now, iirc I read somewhere that they now think some of the whites did settle and have kids with the Inuit, which happens in the book (Crozier fathers 2 children himself) but not in the show.

Oh man that scene in the book when Crozier or somebody looks at it through a telescope and sees it walking like a bear, then it stands up and extends its fuckhuge neck and stares right at him from far away i still think about sometimes. Every scene with Tuunbaq in the book and show was kino imo, I like how they made him resemble a short faced bear for the show too since it was a real thing that existed there and helped demonstrate how alien it was to white settlers to be in that region.

well it sounds like that stuff is well integrated in the novel while in the show the mostly material story rejects the supernatural parts forced onto it, especially since in the ways presented they're so unnecessary and could've been completely replaced with the sailor's superstitions and delusion warping the otherwise natural happenings to seem otherworldly, leaving the show with much better integrity

Psychos can be really charismatic and would be best adapted to convince people to kill and eat someone, giving them the upper hand to survive such situations?

I finished it a few days ago and thought it was good but I dunno, it was like it couldn't decide whether it was about the voyage and the men or about some Inuit supernatural legend thing.
If it's about Tuunbaq and Lady Silence, make it about them. If it's not, the lead poisoning and the men going crazy as they starved would have been enough to make it creepy kino and so Lady Silence and the magic bear were unnecessary.
In fact it would have been creepier with no Lady Silence and shaman shit but still with something like the Tuunbaq to represent what a polar bear looks like to a bunch of half-starved delirious poisoning victims.

Drive it onto the ice as in leading it away from the group.

Doesn't matter if Tuunbuq had been just a very large bear or not, its role in the themes and subtext of the show would be the same, in the end the monster isn't very significant compared to the hubris of the explorers and what they experienced.

>>116532092

When it ate him, one or more forks tore the shit out of it's digestive system. There's a chance it died because of internal bleeding, though it's ambiguous.

>>116532092
the forks were so it would get them lodged inside it and hopefully that would harm it, between that, goodsir's poison and the big chain at the end the monster basically kills itself by continuing to eat the explorers.

They hurt it at times but they don't really beat it directly, it dies just through contact with them

It actually died because it consumed Hickey's soul, which was the real poison amongst the crew.
>>
>>116532598
I thought he choked with Hickey's half body and the rest of the men chained together
>>
>>116532617

How does he do it?
>>
>>116532662
This and the chain being the chain of command that trapped them all there to die in the first place, it being equally bad.
>>
>>116532662
I heard that's in the book, but i don't remember seeing the "soul eating" effect when it ate hickey, like when it are whatshisname at the camp. But yeah, I agree also that

>>116532691
Again yeah: eating the explorers, prob combined with the wounds they inflict on it, kill it. you can read that as being about colonialism in north america, about the rational modern world destroying the pre-modern superstitious world, or whatever

>that final Goodsir chapter
>>
>>116524087
Croxier mentioned to him in like episode 1 how "close" was a terrible thing (being "close" to success etc)

I had to look it up but the gold chains thing is based on an innuit account of finding one of the bodies years later with a gold pocket watch chain fastened to his earings. Nobody knows, just creepy:

>One body — the one with flesh on — had a gold chain fastened to gold ear-rings, and a gold hunting-case watch with engine-turned engraving attached to the chain, and hanging down about the waist. He said when he pulled the chain it pulled the head up by the ears.

>>116533103
Re-watched it, and the bit in episode 1 where he consoles the dying kid by saying that when he dies he will see angels, made his dying visions make more sense

>Titanic has a ship in it, it's not really a ''boat movie'', because it lacks the camaraderie, or the adventure factor to it.
All the scenes with the captain, and those musicians on the deck say otherwise.
>>
>>116512811
because its just not that good.
>>
>>116524083
They also like to pretend to be historians on their blogs, so having a show with cute male actors in military uniform only increases their interest
>>
>>116533205
Yes, but they're hardly the focus of the story. The Titanic is more like a hotel than a ship. The captain and the band scenes are good and all, but the movie isn't about them, sadly.
You could have a titanic movie about the crew, captain and telegraph operators to show their bravery in face of certain death.

No, it never dies in the book. It’s genuinely unkillable and can not be stopped even by its creator which was literally an Inuit god. It does however flatly refuse to eat Hickey, and Hickey dies from fright as it examines him. It smells him and walks off in complete disgust. Crozier becomes a shaman.

the “fag shit” was fine. situational homosexuality is a real phenomenon. if you’re stranded in the arctic surrounded by men then you’ll make do with what you have

This. The quality is so high at first, then really plummets. I don't remember exactly when it happens, but I think it coincides with Ciaran Hinds' departure.
>>
>>116533879
One of my favorite part of the show is the relationship between Crozier and Fitzjames: in the beginning Crozier could barely stand him, then he hated him and at the end they became brothers.
I guess I felt the same about Fitzjames as well, I didn't like him at first but then he grew on me and his death hit me more than the others

I agree that the tent scene with Fitzjames and Crozier was the best. Menzies acted it perfectly

Wasn't there some practice among sailors to have enough jewelry on you to pay for your funeral in case someone finds your corpse?
Might be something like that.

Either that or just cheeky cannibals fucking around.

If they kept all the corpses as food could they have survived?

>You could have a titanic movie about the crew, captain and telegraph operators to show their bravery in face of certain death.
Make it about the generator-room lads who stayed in the bowels of the ship in the certain knowledge that they'd die, dedicating the last moments of their lives making sure the electricity would last for as long as possible, to help the passengers find their ways in corridors that would otherwise be pitch-black, and for the telegraph boys to be able to communicate for longer. Fuck the captain, he doesn't deserve to be in the same movie as those lads.

Probably not. Apparently humans eating human flesh is unhealthy. There's a high chance of developing some sort of infection that causes holes in the brain to develop.

I decided to check this show out and for whatever reason the link I chose was actually the finale...I had no fucking clue what was going on other then they were hungry and the creature they fought at the end looked retarded, I later chose a different link and watched the first actual episode but haven't watched any further yet, did I completely ruin the series?

>>116534914
It wasn't really to pay for your funeral, in most cases. The fact was that sailors didn't have a use for banks since if they'd lodged their money in England it would be of no use to them when having a day off on the other side of the world. Some ships would act as banks for the sailors, but then they'd end up with lots of coin when switching ships etc. So they'd end up with a lot of coin if they were successful/frugal, but it wouldn't be very safe for them to keep bags of coin among their belongings, and neither do you carry that much upon your person every day. What you did was you bought jewellery and finery, so that your riches would always be on your person where you could be safe in the knowledge it couldn't be stolen. Rings worn as you sleep would safe. As a bonus the person finding your corpse could take your shit and at least give you a decent funeral as thanks. A lot of travellers of little means(if you don't have enough money stashed with them the banks won't accommodate in your travels) or just people with no name to them would do the same on land.

There was a similar reason why women always had so much jewellery bought for them as presents through history. Because pretty much everything a woman "owned" was actually owned by her husband, except for jewellery which was firmly hers in the eyes of the law/custom. So if the husband decided to fuck off and leave you on your own, or in more recent years divorce you, then he could take the house and most your shit, but you'd be able to live off of the expensive jewellery that he couldn't touch. I think they also had an easier time keeping husbands from drinking or gambling away jewellery, since there'd be legal recourse for them "stealing" the jewellery by selling them behind her back, so a wife could make sure that even if her husband was a drunkard they'd at least be able to sell some jewellery to keep the house or buy food. So in that case it was like an insurance against harder times.

They were dying from lead poisoning. Any disease that comes from eating human flesh wouldn't be anywhere near as much trouble as the fact that by eating the lead poisoned flesh they'd only poison themselves further.
>>
>>116536033
In the first episode he told the kid that when you die you see visions of things you love or cherish, like angels for Christians. It bothered him that the kid died hallucinating something horrible, and when Goodsir kills himself he imagines plants because he loves nature.

How the fuck is it even possible to watch the finale by accident? It's still worth watching from the beginning.
>>
>>116536363
>How the fuck is it even possible to watch the finale by accident?
That's a common occurrence with the HBONordic streaming service, or at least was. Because the eggheads thought that the UI should start you off on the very latest episode, rather than episode one of season one. Or at least that's how it was. When I clicked to play Banshee they started me off on the premiere of the third season or something and I thought it was a cold open when they hunted down and executed some guy. There was no "play next episode" either, you had to go back to the main menu, click the show, change the season to the one you're on and then click the next episode.

I've genuinely never seen a worse UI than what HBONordic started off with, and even all these years later it's way shittier than Netflix.

This is actually not in the book at all and Fitzjames is a minor character who receives almost no characterization. It wasn’t known at the time of writing he was illegitimate and I don’t think Simmons knew what to do with him. Definitely an improvement, because all he does in the book is die, and even that is offscreen.

There are probably a bunch ally good deleted scenes and bloopers no one will ever see because of the shitty home release.

That’s like their only scene together that is memorable at all. It would’ve been cool to see but I think the show did a MUCH better job of showing the two leads together when the book mostly ignored it.

Both. I can't believe the shit that was Chernobyl is actually considered a masterpiece. It had like 2 good episodes, solely carried by Dyatlov, and that was it.
