Trivia

The name Eldritch Palmer (Jonathan Hyde) originates from Philip K. Dick's 1965 novel "The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch". In it, three body parts of the titular character had been artificially augmented or replaced. The series' character is also portrayed as having undergone surgical transplants. In addition, the author of the novel describes the augmentations as symbols for alienation, blurred reality and despair - states of mind that Eldrich Palmer seems to be familiar with. See more »

Goofs

Abraham Setrakian's tattoo (and the name Eichhorst tends to call him aside from "The Jew") is "A230385." The tattoos were only administered at the Auschwitz camp complex, while Setrakian was held at Treblinka. Also, once letters were introduced into the tattoos, each letter only went up to 20,000 before the next letter was reached; so the progress would be A19998, A19999, A20000, B00001. This process wasn't started until 1944, whereas Setrakian was put into the camps in 1940. Even the original series of tattoos issued only went up to 202499. See more »

Downhill - The Series
16 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

For something that started out pretty good to became so damn unbearable, it's unbelievable.

Scientifically trying to explain the clearly supernatural is one thing, but the terrible, unreasonable choices characters make is a wholly different. The cast is relatively small, and they do their best to keep them around. In a post-apocalyptic world-in-the-making, where pretty much everyone is in constant danger, the main characters always survive, including that damned brat, who tops Game of Thrones' King Joffrey for me. Their choices to face danger when it's not necessary, to go alone when they'd clearly need help to survive (which they do anyway 'cus 'plot armor'), to overdramatize everything and continue to whine about it for seasons to come, to actively push the boundaries of stupidity...

The show started out as a solid 7, maybe even an 8, with an intriguing story, interesting design choices, it was mysterious and even scary, but they managed to ruin it all and turn it into a show where characters have casual conversations and calmly drink themselves under the table while they're under attack from horrors, and spectacularly screw up the solution to mankind's survival, which earned similarly spectacular 1/10 rating from me.

With all the terrible choices, plot conveniences, plot holes, plot armor, horrid writing and whatever else, this is just milking the cash-cow now. Finished 3 seasons, I'm most definitely not going to start the 4th.

If you're really interested in the show, watch the first season and then stop right there and forget about it because with each episode, it gets worse and worse. You won't have a finished story, but at least you'll walk away with some positive experience.
