What is it?

The 2018 horror television show The Purge (Season 1).

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this television show:

The first season of “The Purge” follows a group of individuals, each pursuing their own agendas while trying to survive the 12 violence-ridden hours of Purge Night.

US Marine Miguel Guerrero (Gabriel Chavarria) returns home to search for his sister Penelope (Jessica Garza).

Penelope has joined a cult that sacrifices its members to Purgers, led by Good Leader Tavis (Fiona Dourif).

Jane Barbour (Amanda Warren) uses Purge Night to conduct something nefarious against her boss David Ryker (William Baldwin).

Rick Betancourt (Colin Woodell) and his wife Jenna (Hannah Anderson) attend a pro-Purge party despite their anti-Purge beliefs to drum up financial support for their various charities.

My Thoughts

My brother GC and I watched this show last year, I did not realize until now that I had not made a post about it, oops.

I did not expect to like this show, but it was better than I had expected.

This show follows the stories of several different characters, my least favorite was the story that followed the married couple, they were pretty boring and not very relatable; and so the other stories were better, but in one of the stories there was a character who was supposed to be a soldier/marine but I do not think that he did a good job playing a soldier/marine.

This show did just enough to earn its existence and it did just enough to continue watching it, and so I wonder what they will do with season two.

The end,
