Resident Evil (2022) Season 1 Episode 1 Discussion

Recommended Posts

I wasn't expecting this time format of storytelling for Netflix's new series. At first I was not a big fan of jumping back and forward through time but somehow it grew on man.

I'm actually much more interested in discovering what happened in the past then what's happening in the current timeline. But I expect for that to change as more info is revealed in the about the future timeline.

I thought this was a pretty good introductory episode for the series. It feels like they spent a lot of money on the opening episode. Seeing the virus severely mutate and change that worm was pretty cool. Although I must admit, that I'm now wondering why we haven't seen some giant zombie dogs.

I feel bad for the girls having to move into a new school but man, they are giving the dad all he can handle. It seems pretty obvious to me that he's trying to make the best of bad situation but he's catching it at work, he knows the product is bad and then when he comes home he catches it from the girls. On top of that he's sick, its just problem after problem for him.

I will openly admit, I'm not a huge fan of the plot devices that are being used to get us from point a to point b. I think the writers did a great job of writing an interesting backstory but they make all the main characters behave in absurd ways. Everybody's in Whesker's  family is keeping a secret, everybody is trying to solve things on their own. It's all really painful to watch characters that you genuinely like make incredibly bad decisions again and again.

Why on earth would you just randomly go an unlock a locked safe in a room full of animals. Why would you just assume that Umbrella only has one camera to capture surveillance footage. Why would you use your father's password to login to a secure network? How could they not consider the massive repercussions! 😅
