I really like Netflix. 2018 & 2019 were two of the best years for this company and the reason are high quality series like Altered Carbon, Castlevenia and . Also i like post apocalyptic series, games and movie. Reason enough to watch The Rain from Denmark.
Core facts about the series:
Title: The Rain
Original title: The Rain
Episodes: 14 in 2 seasons
When a virus that is carried out by rain wipes out most of the humans in Scandinavia, Danish siblings Simone and Rasmus take shelter in a bunker. After 6 year of isolation the siblings leave the bunker to look for their father who left them alone during their time in the bunker.
Together with another group of survivors the siblings are exploring the post apocalyptic country to find a safe place and the father of the siblings. It seems that the Apollon company could be a safe place but they have their own plans. Especially Rasmus become the most important major character because of his realtion to the virus …
My opinion to the series
The Rain has a creative setting and premise. Scandinavia is a relatively unspoiled venue that is perfect as a venue for the post-apocalypse. In addition, there is the virus itself, which spreads at the beginning of rain (hello droplet infection) but evolves. This creates an extremely interesting atmosphere.
The true strength of the series lies in the characters, their relationship to each other and their development. All the main characters are young but have to grow up fast to survive in this tough world. The series takes a lot of time to develop the characters. Rasmus, in particular, is undergoing a blatant development and becomes either the savior of humanity or its fall.
The combination of post-apocalyptic scenario, character development and the story creates a continuously rising voltage curve.
In summary, The Rain is one of the best Netflix originals and shines through an exciting story, interesting characters and a creative setting. Those looking for a European Netflix series should definitely give The Rain a chance. The trip to post-apocalyptic Scandinavia is worthwhile!
I forgive the rating for The Rain especially worth seeing!
We read in the next post. Have a good watch!
