Finished watching Into the Night (2020– )

I thought this was interesting, with a strong narrative drive that comes from a compelling premise. The sun kills people. A small group of people, with assorted personal demons, find themselves on a plane trying to outrun the sunrise. As tensions build between the passengers, they must hop from airport to airport, scavenging food and fuel as they go. It’s not perfect. There are several moments where you question the choices made by the writers. ‪They seem expedient rather that actual. In the end, it’s that constant pressure to move, the pressure to stay ahead of the sun, that ramps up the energy of the story, and makes it so compelling. It’s an interesting devise used to great effect.‬
