The dystopian drama Severance comes from executive producer and director Ben Stiller (Escape at Dannemora). It tells the story of Mark S(cout) (Adam Scott) who leads an office team within Lumon Industries where an implanted chip ensures that the office and home are completely separated. Extremely useful for monitoring the work-life balance! To give you an impression: as a reference I would mention S1 from Homecoming. Which, by the way, was better.

Adam Scott is perfectly cast as an office slave. Scott acts alternately naive, mysterious and initially unfathomable. It soon becomes clear that the dark Severance is not a bite-sized 9-piece chunk. I like slow dramas and character studies, but the first four/five episodes of Severance were a struggle. Severance is mostly secretive and static, keeping the dramatic cards on the chest for far too long. At a slow pace, with a touch of Debtors Crediteuren humor, we are working towards the grand finale. That is not a grande finale, but nothing more than a prelude to S2. Disappointing.

Stylishly directed, mysterious series about a team of office workers whose memories of their private and working lives are surgically split. The tone is somewhere between The Office and Twin Peaks, but despite the sometimes funny situations and dialogues, the series is quite oppressive. The cold, sleek design contributes considerably to the strange atmosphere of the whole and the first-class cast knows how to handle the material. Certain questions are answered in the final episode, but the door is wide open for a second season.

That first episode promises so much. Rarely seen such a good actor as Adam Soctt in a series. Don't be put off by the slowness and the lapping, because at the end credits you wake up again in front of the television. It's great to get away from the daily routine as a viewer, just like the main character at the office

Insane bit of escapism (thanks in part to the soundtrack and hypnotic dialogues).
