Forever (Amazon) S: Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph -- premieres 9/14/18





Married couple June (Maya Rudolph) and Oscar (Fred Armisen) live a comfortable but predictable life in suburban Riverside, California. For 12 years they've had the same conversations, eaten the same meals and taken pleasant vacations at the same rented lake house. But after June talks Oscar into shaking things up with a ski trip, the pair suddenly find themselves in completely unfamiliar territory. Forever is an utterly original, insightful and poignant comedy about love, commitment, and marriage, created by Emmy Award-winning writers Alan Yang (Master of None, Parks and Recreation) and Matt Hubbard (30 Rock, Parks and Recreation).

PRINCIPAL CAST INFORMATION:
∑ Fred Armisen as Oscar
∑ Maya Rudolph as June

CREW INFORMATION:
∑ Alan Yang as CRTR/EP
∑ Dave Becky as EP
∑ Fred Armisen as EP
∑ Matt Hubbard as CRTR/EP
∑ Maya Rudolph as EP
∑ Tim Sarkes as EP
Apparently, there is a big spoiler regarding this show, and reviews can't really talk about it, so with that in mind, please be sure to use spoiler tags.

I figured out what the spoiler was relatively quickly. Just not how and the progression of it.

The show is kinda a slow burn too.

Takes 5 eps for it to really kick in for me.
Hated the first ep but stayed with it and watched the first 5.

I've watched two episodes so far. Had it not been given such glowing reviews I probably wouldn't have watched more than the first episode. It's a bit slow.

I hate to be cruel, but 4K close-ups don't work to every actor's advantage.

Are you sure this show is a 4K show?

It wasn’t listed that way on my tv and it’s not included in the 4K category of 4K tv on Amazon video.

They've made it very difficult to find the 4K version of several of their recent shows, though they are there (it's a separate entry, and it's easy to find the standard HD version). I went to the site www.instantwatcher.com and looked it up and they provided a link; I couldn't find it going through Prime's listings.

On the other hand, I watched the recent Steven Soderbergh film "Unsane", and though it shows no UHD option for the film, it streamed in 4K UHD automically (first time that happened).

I got around to watching Episode Four and half-way through I had to shut it off. The couple they're portraying are too low key for me. I kept waiting for the "magic" to happen, but I just couldn't take any more.

The best episode is Episode 6. And they aren’t even really in it.
