Through art and imagination, people usually look for the same objective that science looks for – A reality beyond that we know right now, yet relatable and useful to us. Time and again, scientists and artists have dared to dream the impossible and made it possible. A Song of Ice and Fire, and then Game of Thrones created a world unknown to us with stories that are as messy and complex, even more, if possible, as our lives. But the show is over; the cast has also kept their GoT cloaks aside and moved on to strange, beautiful things. Jonathan Pryce, who played the High Sparrow on the show, is set to star in a new American sci-fi drama series, Tales From The Loop; premiering April 3, 2020, on Amazon (Prime) Video. The trailer is out now, and it’s serenely amazing.
The trailer sets a somber and delightful backdrop through its music and visuals; it seems to look at the enigma of things, earlier out of reach, possible now with the advent of a path-breaking technology, known as The Loop. Jonathan Pryce’s role looks to be that of a scientist/professor. In the trailer, when a kid asks him, “What do you do?”, he answers, “When someone says something is impossible, I prove that it’s possible.”
Further, towards the end, Pryce’s character lays down the theme for us, “Everyone is connected to The Loop, in one way or another”. The shock, the pain, the wonder in everybody’s eyes show the realization of a dream, far outstretching belief and vulnerability. Another character’s voice speaks for it; “One day, many years from now, you’ll wonder if this really happened, or if it was a dream!” So, the machine, The Loop is overlooking everything, and it’s scary, it’s new.
The series is inspired by the paintings from the narrative art book of the same name by Simon Stålenhag, a Swedish artist and designer whose specialty is digital futuristic images. Amazon Prime video’s official description says the series “explores the mind-bending adventures of the people who live above the Loop; a machine built to unlock and explore the mysteries of the universe – making things previously relegated to science fiction, possible”. Science fiction is a genre with infinite possibilities. And with artificial intelligence slowly creeping into our lives, these might not be farfetched from reality.
Jonathan Pryce’s acting prowess is well known; after Game of Thrones, he gave an excellent performance in The Two Popes, for which he was nominated for Best Actor at the Oscars 2020. Hence, after this promising trailer, we look forward to his tales from Tales from the loop. What about you? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section.
