Many series suffer in their second seasons after beginning more or less inspired. He feared that that would happen with ‘I Am alive’, because it is a work that manages a number of ingredients whose mixture could no longer work with a enormous ease. In fact, already in the first batch of episodes there were details of improvement, but the positive thing ended up being imposed with slack, passing exactly the same as in the case of the second.
RTVE issued yesterday by the close of this second season, which for many minutes I was even leaving some flavor of farewell to the series itself. However, everything ended encauzándose back to the great threat posed by Mendieta to bridge the episode leaving a very good taste to the viewer.
One of the details that I had called the attention throughout this second season is that the element of manners of the series had lost some weight in favour of a further development of the case with which they have had to deal with Marquez, Yago and Sebas. The meyor weight of the latter in these frames has served as a counterpoint, because ‘I Am alive’ had always shone more by the relationship between their characters that plots police.
The series and has been playing also with a lot of success with the more dramatic side that no-one can know where they come from Márquez and Yago, besides leaving space to a solvent development of the consequences of its presence as everything related to Saints. There he helped the good work of Fele Martínez, but what could have been monotonous ended up having the necessary spark to reach the audience’s heart.
The large, so to speak, of damaged all of this has been Bea, a character with a lot more weight in the first season and in the second has been pushed on too many occasions the role of comparsa. To me it doesn’t bother me, because their plots in the previous season rarely satisfy me as much as the rest of the character, but you have been curious to see how ‘I Am alive’ has been released ballast without looking back.
All of that has led us to a denouement in which, as I noted before, it made you think more in a close final in a point and followed. It is true that have been known to increase the threat when it was needed and have done so by pointing to the personal, which is where ‘I Am alive’ works best. In addition, here it has prevented an epilogue too stretched as it happened in the first season, leaving to change in a cliffhanger much less resounding.
in Addition, the chapter has handled it quite well the small dramas and personal -the apparition of Saints does not cease to be a goop, but he has fit in quite well-the revelations -the pregnancy of Mary – and the small dose of fan service -that appearance of Yago covering her only with a towel-. Details that might be turning against you but that the hour of truth add up to your way to the set.
What has primacy is always in ‘I Am alive’ is to see their protagonists as a kind of big family, and this season has returned to work by this route. The rest, well, look far from being exciting, yes, it is the counterpoint necessary to not be a Spanish series more. Well resolved, but one more. Now, you just need to have confidence in that element of science-fiction will know how to handle even better on a third season is still not confirmed by RTVE.
