Earl and I finished watching â€œTales From The Loopâ€ on Amazon Prime this weekend. It took us a while to finish the eight episode series. We started it at the beginning of lockdown. While the concept was very intriguing, and I especially enjoyed the intersection of science fiction with retro-futuristic technology, the pacing of some of the episodes was a little difficult for me to grasp.
I shanâ€™t spoil anything here, but basically, â€œTales From The Loopâ€ is about a town that is built above a scientific research facility called â€œThe Loopâ€. We are reminded of photos of the the Large Hadron Collider in Europe. References to activity with in â€œThe Loopâ€ are vague; basically, they make the impossible possible. The episodes show us what happens to individuals as a result of being near â€œThe Loopâ€.
The music in each episode is gorgeous. Itâ€™s probably the best scenic type music Iâ€™ve heard in years. The cinematography and visuals are amazing. The stories are compelling, just paced oddly at times.
Overall we enjoyed the experience, but itâ€™s best left enjoyed at your own pace.
