Okay this review of the show is not as well planned as my other ones. I have just finished watching the season finale and possibly the series finally and I need to talk about my love of this show.
A while back I did several fist impressions on some of the series that were coming out at the time and Forever was one of them. As I said in that first impression I enjoy both the actor Ioan Gruffudd and the concept of Immortals, making this series a must watch for me. Since watching all 22 episodes of the show, the series has not let me down. It has continued to entertain me with the mystery presented each week, the knowledge that Henry Morgan has and his past. Burn Gorman of Torchwood fame plays the main antagonist of the series, Adam. Another Immortal who has tracked down Henry and may have more of a connection then we are lead to believe. The series had a great cast of characters that I enjoyed watching every week. They were fun to watch and the were more developed then the average TV show character.
The series did not have the greatest or most complex mysteries, but because of the characters they were interesting to watch. A show with Immortals is in my wheel house, I like the concept and the problems that being immortal bring. Even though people may believe that being immortal would be amazing, no one considers the consequences. I really did enjoy the show and I would hope that the series is continued because I thought it was fantastic. It may not have been the best show airing, but I thought it was a well thought out, well casted and interesting show.
If you agree or don’t please sign the petition I found online to possibly help the show get another season. It ended with a cliffhanger and I want to see more. Thank you for your time and I appreciate you reading this.
