On Becoming a God in Central Florida

On Becoming a God in Central Florida

This caught me TOTALLY off-guard. I was quite excited to see the series kick off with Alexander Skarsgard playing “Florida Man” in an Amway-but-OBVIOUSLY-IT’S-NOT-AMWAY cult/multilevel marketing cult… and then, well, let’s say Episode 1 doesn’t finish where you suspect it’s going to. Nor does episode 2. And so on. We really warmed to this exercise in plot arc building and… well, not “misdirection” as such – I guess maybe it’s more complex characterisation at work, where you’re continually introduced to characters you think are 2-dimensional and you’ve got a handle on, only to follow their stories to unexpected by completely believeable plot points.  REALLY compelling. 👍👍
