"No, this isn’t some deadpan spoof of bad sci-fi, with the lumpen writing, catatonic acting and thuddingly inelegant plotting there to make a postmodern point," Jack Seale says of the Kate Bosworth-led Fyre Festival-esque drama series. "It’s really as bad as it initially seems. "Well, almost. Once The I-Land does reveal its hand – basically it’s Lost meets The Matrix, although there’s a lot less to it than that – it improves purely by dint of making us wonder what handbrake turn into a new field of randomness it’ll perform next. Moreover, nothing can be as poor as the bewilderingly disastrous opening episodes." ALSO: The I-Land isn’t bad, per se, it’s just not all that memorable.
