The terror lives
>>
After 170 years I guess I should be more patient but I can't wait until they find something big in one of the wrecks. About the videos posted in the last threads. Basically correct because the stories we know remain a mystery. It's very likely that the Inuit simply mixed several expeditions into one. If they found the ship's log maybe we'll know if it was really Crozier who died in 1849 in Terror Bay.

You are the worst kind of anon. You abuse your anonimity. You complain in the safety of your shitposting. You claim you have watched the show when you obviously haven't and you're weak in your shitposting BECAUSE 4chan affords you anonimity... YOU'VE MADE YOURSELF A SHITPOSTER, and a bad one at that, and you blame the show for it. I'm not the shitposter you are, Anon, never will be, but you will never be fit for this thread. And as your fellow Anon... I take some responsibility for that. For the VANITY of your outlook, I should have reported your post rather than write this novel, because you seem to have confused my sympathy with tolerance, BUT THERE'S A LIMIT TO HOW MUCH I CAN TOLERATE, AND THAT IS WHERE WE ARE PRESENTLY STANDING. There are some things we were never meant to be to one another. I see that now. Quality posting on my side, shitposting on yours.

So let us turn our energies on what this thread requires of us. We should give that our best. There can be no argument between us there.

>>97365020
You can't sustain 100+ people off the land that far north. Inuit operate in small mobile groups because that's what the food supply can support. Even if Hickey didn't fuck up relations with the Inuit they'd have never collected enough food to keep all of them alive.

>Now that the dust has settled, can we agree he did nothing wrong?

No rescue plan? Wrong. Forbidding his niece's marriage to Crozier? Wrong (sure, not from that time and class POV but from viewer's which is the point) Lashing out on Crozier like that which was 100% uncalled for? Wrong (show restraint especially since crew was listening) No attempts to recruit Silence and her people's help? Wrong (they new the North, the Brits and Irish didn't)

other than that, everything else is what if. Going for broke could have worked or couldn't (early, unusually cold winter speaks in favor of fail). Sending recon crew to find rescue as Crozier suggested didn't work as Crozier found out, so Franklin's rejection of the plan cannot be taken against him.

He was a great motivator and he was right about keeping crew's morale high. JK Simmons would disapprove of so much "good job team" but it kept people if not happy at least proud for being useful.

Anthology series where the theme is failed expeditions.

the Eulogy explains it all. Right? "In his flight, Jacob lighted upon a certain place and tarried there because the sun was set. He thought it a terrible place. No house, no hearth. A ladder set upon the earth and the top of it reaching to the heavens. Behold, the lord stood above it and he said, 'I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places, wherever thou goest; For I will not leave thee.' And in Jacob's dream, he saw the invisible world, Companion to the known one we perceive... With its rocks and moon... Its ice fields and brute animals... And all the people we know... Have ever known... And will ever know. So complete it would seem to leave no room for its invisible brother world which is yet more immense than the one we see. For in this world dwell the angels who keep us, The Lord who will not leave us... And the departed, who though cleaved from the frame that carried them, yet live. Newest to their ranks, our bright captain... Sir John. Who, in the virtue and strength of his every gesture, showed himself the elect of the lord... destined to reign with Christ forever. The invisible world of spirits, though unseen, was present for Jacob. Not future, not distant, but present. And it is now, and it is here, among us, if we open our eyes... And see his truth...Amongst us."

Sir Franklin would have been a much better second than a commander. He definitely had the skills to keep the crew motivated and cheerful, and the men adored him ("don't tell Sir John I was afraid!") but you need someone willing to adapt to the changing circumstances to successfully lead a polar expedition. Crozier was adaptable, but Sir John was not.

Actually, wasn't Sir John's inflexibility the reason for his disastrous land expedition, where he nearly starved?

That's a great observation, that he should have been the second in command, and reasons why.

yes, you are right, it was implied on the show and outright blamed in the book on his inability to adapt.

Well it's something that a lot of people forgot but Cook's third and last voyage that ended in his death had a goal to sail the Northwest Passage. From the Alaskan side. Hawaii was their outpost on two occasions. Franklin's first expedition also ended badly with half the crew dying.
Greely Expedition during the International Polar Year in the 1880s established the new farthest north record but ended in death of majority of the expedition. There was canibalism and one exection.
Then there was the disaster of S.A. Andree's Balloon expedition in 1897 to the North Pole.Brusilov's expedition in 1913 to the Northeast Passage. Finally airship Italia of Umberto Nobile that resulted in death of some of the crew and the legendary Roald Amundsen in his search mission.

In the Antarctic the three most dramatic expeditions were: Terra Nova (Scott), Aurora (Mawson) and Endurance/Aurora (Shackleton/Macintosh).

Gold/Yellow is the color of madness in many cultures. There's some speculation about how Lady Silence cut Crozier loose from the 'chain of command' while this poor fellow was bound to it, which led to his death. There's also mention the fact that the camp was beat up when they arrived which leads one to think that the remainder of that camp simply went mad and did that to him, perhaps he did it to himself in order to keep himself feeling something, anything, until his captain returned to him. Remember that the other lads in his party took a vote that each individual could do what he wanted, and this particular lad was protesting many of the things they were suggesting, making him an easy target for them to vent frustrations on.

There is also the thematic callback to what Crozier says earlier in the series. It's not the same character that he has the conversation with, but the idea of the image still holds.

>I desperately need some more JaredHarriskino. But as far as I can tell The Terror is the first thing he's been a main character in that's actually good.

It's tough for elderly actors who have never been pretty boys/beefcakes to score leading roles in anything. It's a miracle that AMC forked out so much money for this show considering the lack of a traditional lead ( buff, square jawed actor in this late 20s, early 30s, think Hemsworth in that sea-faring movie with a killer whale or whatever). They could have pretty'd up Crozier and cast, I dunno, Poldark lad or Outlander lad or Jon Snow.

That said, that is why it's hard to find good stuff with good character actors. They are either in small roles (Pompei, Resident Evil Apocalypse and resident Evil: Final Chapter) or not fully on the TV show (Mad Men 2 or 3 seasons, recurring on Fringe)

Many mountaneering expeditions end up with at least one death. Those sometimes have around 13 members if they are siege-style expeditions otherwise it's just 2-3 men.
Polar expeditions are also small nowadays. Recent death I remember was that of Henry Worsley who died in 2016 like a couple miles before completing first solo crossing of Antarctica. He may be related to Shackleton's legendary navigator Frank Worsley.

Aside from ships and some siege-style expeditions to the Himalayas perhaps the last truly big expedition was British Trans Antarctic Expedition in 1955-58 led by Vivian Fuchs and Edmund Hillary. Transglobe Expedition from the 80s was also ambitious but it was pretty much Ranulph Fiennes and friends.

If you lads liked this you should definitely watch 'The Last Confession of Alexander Pearce'

Same era, same atomsphere, all true. The story was reported back in London at the time and gave Charles Dickens nightmares when he was a child.

Beauty of the world. Some of us are disappointed he didn't see Silence too.

It's interesting to compare his dying vision to Franklin's (the sea, the opera house ceiling, his bare feet after eating his shoes presumably, and finally Crozier and Sophia happy).

Tom Crean the unsung hero. Guy was like a superhero saving the day several times. One of the reasons Terra Nova Expedition is my favorite is because it had so many colorful characters. If I ever visit Ireland I'll be sure to see South Pole Inn, Tom Crean's restaurant. I think his grave is in nearby village as well. A website dedicated to him is nice looking and still very active. I visited it this morning and found this article. After Scott's reputation have been justly restored some people started accusing his second-in-command because goddammit they have to find somebody to blame. This nice article explains the controversy in his defense.

One thing I don't remember was what was Crean's opinion on Irish independence. I guess he wasn't very involved in the debate unlike his fellow Irish explorer Patrick Keohane who was an Irish Republican (but still served alongside the British during WWII weirdly enough).

No man, Brits are ugly. They only recently started to mold their actors and actresses after American stars (beginning with orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly) but they used to just ugly Shakespearan types like the Royal family before Diana.

No if it isn't your type of a show. I never press on with something that just isn't my thing. I couldn't get into Rome either back in time. It was praised and I was like, but everyone is so unlikable and the story wasn't told in interesting way either.

>The "don't sell sir john I was afraid" bit really sold that. It's all stiff upper lip throughout this horror but at the end of the day they're kids from across the world in a place they probably never wanted to be in, let alone die in

this is beautifully said. I think that the Episode 3 Eulogy sums that up really well: ""In his flight, Jacob lighted upon a certain place and tarried there because the sun was set. He thought it a terrible place. No house, no hearth. A ladder set upon the earth and the top of it reaching to the heavens. Behold, the lord stood above it and he said, 'I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places, wherever thou goest; For I will not leave thee.' And in Jacob's dream, he saw the invisible world, Companion to the known one we perceive... With its rocks and moon... Its ice fields and brute animals... And all the people we know... Have ever known... And will ever know. So complete it would seem to leave no room for its invisible brother world which is yet more immense than the one we see. For in this world dwell the angels who keep us, The Lord who will not leave us... And the departed, who though cleaved from the frame that carried them, yet live. Newest to their ranks, our bright captain... Sir John. Who, in the virtue and strength of his every gesture, showed himself the elect of the lord... destined to reign with Christ forever. The invisible world of spirits, though unseen, was present for Jacob. Not future, not distant, but present. And it is now, and it is here, among us, if we open our eyes... And see his truth...Amongst us."

No, he told the esquis what to say, that everyone was dead and that the English should not come back. That was a more dignifying closure than having to expose cannibalism, suffering, etc.

I don't know space exploration is a bit different. At least during the pre-shuttle era the idea was that those who became astronauts were astronauts all the time, training or on a mission.
