An Honest Review On Netflix’s TV Series, Pine Gap

For the first time in history, we have the privilege of seeing an ABC TV/Netflix co-production. What’s more exciting is the fact that this new TV series is set in Australia’s ultra-secretive spy facility. It sounds like an exciting concept, doesn’t it?

One of the people who served as consultants for the show advising the director Mat King on issues such as dialogue and decor is David Rosenberg. The reason why he was picked is possible because he worked at Pine Gap for 18 years. So let’s get started on Pine Gap Review.

As much as the concept of this TV series itself is good, its visualization was done poorly. The blame can be placed on Greg Haddrick and Felicity Packard, who are the writers/co-creators, and the director for spending less time on tweaking humdrum conversations and sterile-looking sets and more time flexing their imagination. What they should have done is encourage more dramatic intrigues, or anything else to energize a painfully inert and dull production characterized by a group of people staring on screens and discussing what they see.

This Pine Gap Review, which made up of 6 parts can be described as a show to take you through your insomnia, rather than a film per se.

The first couple of Gap Pine’s episodes premiered at the Adelaide film festival. The response it received was nothing but poor. Given there is nothing cinematic about the show but too much talk and some sex scenes, those who attended its premiere at the festival were filled with a sense of disappointment.

The background of this show’s story is the longstanding alliance between the American and Australian intelligence apparatus through Pine Gap.

The center of the show’s drama is the Operations Floor at Pine Gap. Operatives at the base, try to identify those who are guilty of shooting down a civilian plane over the APEC summit in Myanmar. The plane was shot down with two heads of state nearby, that is, the US president and the visiting Australian prime minister. The most disappointing thing about how they conduct their investigation is they do it while staring at screens. Anyway, a squabble ensues that results in changes at Pine Gap, including the appointment of Stephen Curry as the new mission director.

The main characters include Parker Sawyer’s who plays the role of Gus, who is an American living and working in Australia and Tess Haubrich (Jasmina) — an Australian citizen working as a communications analyst who’s task in the operation is to narrate the contents of screens displaying spreadsheets, maps, and tiny lines representing sound files.
