The Terror

As long as we recognize Lucas is washed up and most TV sucks, we'll all get along fine.

The Terror

New show on AMC about to end it's first 10 episodes. It's a fictional account of real events based on a book by Dan Simmons.

The show is based on a real life English arctic expedition in the 1840s. The goal was to finish the mapping of the theoretical north-west passage through an area of far northern Canada that is iced over most of the year.

After ice breaking their way north during the 4 month summer, the explorers end up stuck on a huge ice sheet come fall. They have a ton of provisions and two ships, but things spiral out control after the first year of being stranded out on the ice.

There's some science fiction, historical fiction and plenty of solid horror so far. I've really enjoyed it. I don't know if there will be more than one season.
