The Underground Railroad: full season. Season 1, Ep 1
Amazon Prime says: "From Academy Award winner Barry Jenkins and based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Colson Whitehead, 'The Underground Railroad' is a new series that chronicles Cora Randall’s desperate bid for freedom in the Antebellum South. After escaping a Georgia plantation for the rumored Underground Railroad, Cora discovers no mere metaphor, but an actual railroad beneath the Southern soil." I've just watched the full ten episodes of this over a period of about two weeks. I found it very gripping, full of great casting and first-rate performances. The later episodes are stronger than the early ones in my view, but maybe that just reflects my increasing investment in the show as it went on. What did other MeFites make of it? [more inside]
