Persons Unknown - WTF?

We know we are really late on blogging about this, but Ern just finished watching this show (against Leeard's advice). Leeard maintained that Person’s Unknown was “not worth it,” providing little detail other than that, because Leeard never spoils. (Ern spoils all the time, so watch out for that.) However much Ern trusts the taste of Leeard (which is more than she trusts the taste of most people), Ern will watch just about anything on Instant Netflix (if they have it).

This is why it’s not worth it: It was advertised as a serial, and it turned out to be season one of a series. We expected the season finale to provide closure and answers and it SO DID NOT. Not in a LOST kind of way either. In an “it didn’t end” kind of way. Apparently, the makers were confused and thought they were getting a second season or something. ANGST. It COULD have been an ending, we guess, if they meant it to not have a decisive ending, but that's not satisfying to the viewer.

That said, even though it should have been done in ten episodes and not thirteen, the show was interesting, and we were on board for it. This blogger would watch a second season if they made it, which they probably won’t. The characters were decent, and so was the story and pacing.

If you were thinking of watching this or catching up on it, don’t bother unless they announce that there will be a season two. We think if there is no Persons Unknown season two, the writers should come out with a novel. Just sayin’. It would sell better than most books and give all the viewers closure. We'd read it.

Season grade (if it was intended to be a season): A-
Series grade (if it was intended to be a series): C-

Ern solemnly swears to trust Leeard more. Which means she will return Practical Magic to Netflix, unwatched.

Note: the writers KNEW it would only be the 13 episodes. They created it as a mini-series, not a complete show, which means they also knew the ending would be unsatisfying for viewers. Rude.


  1. Don't watch Practical Magic. Just read the book. It's kinda weird and has slow pacing, but it's still better than the movie. By lots and lots.
