These past few weeks, I’ve been letting my personal frustrations with this series’s storytelling get in the way of the things I genuinely do enjoy about it. Episode 10 felt like a breath of fresh air in many ways, going back to basics (for the most part) and focusing on the bits of the show I like rather than the parts that make me act like an idiot.
I feel like I’ve fallen into something of a rut watching this show. I’ve found myself increasingly hung up on certain storytelling aspects of the series and how it’s dealing with condensing a lot of information from the source material into a mere 13 episodes. Long story short: it’s doing a bad job. Which is a shame, because for the most part I’m still enjoying the series.
I continue to not really understand this game nor the true stakes of it. But a long as I switch my brain off and just ride along with the flow, it’s fun seeing the characters do their thing and start to get some small amount of insight into these new roles they all hold. I get the impression, had I not imposed myself to write about every episode on an individual basis, I’d probably be enjoying Tower of God a lot more.
