Review: “We want to reinvent television with De dag .” As if there was not enough buzz around the series by Jonas Geirnaert and Julie Mahieu, Telenet boss John Porter decided to raise the bar a bit higher. Too high? No. The day is top.
Who wants to view the day does not know too much about the series. That it concerns a hostage situation in a bank in an unnamed town. That you see in the first episode how the police develops en masse and tries to get a view of the situation. And that you see the same events in the second episode, but from the point of view of the hostage takers and the people in the bank who hold them.
More details tell us about who, what, where and how would be sin and possibly also punishable, and I will not do that either. But is it good television? After six episodes bingekijken – The day counts a total of twelve – the answer is without doubt yes. The first episode seems to be almost just a stoneware policier, but after five hours of watching television, you see that it is much more, and that you do not spend a single second.
Playing with points of view to tell the same story again is not new in itself. Some films and series did it already, and The day does it too. But how well did the creators not elaborate this? Every second episode may be about the same events as the previous episode, every time you get new elements, some extra pieces of the puzzle will be placed. For that reason you look De dag best in blocks of two episodes. Immediately you understand why Julie Mahieu and Jonas Geirnaert worked on De dag for so long : writing this scenario and working it out in this way, you do not do it in a few months. A daring piece. And a
If at a certain moment you think something is wrong, you see that it does make sense in the next episode. Delicious also how the makers do not give viewers too much info. Information is provided, things are suggested, but you also have to fill in your own holes and contribute ideas.
The day keeps pace , and after six episodes you wonder how the makers keep the last six episodes exciting. A few important twists have already passed, so you wonder what can happen. Just a stroke to keep the arm, though the chances are small that this series collapses like a pudding. If only because you also have a bunch of actors who only make De dag more credible. How often has not been written how good it is to not always see the usual suspects? Well then, The day confirms that again. Glad to mention names of actors such as Sofie Decleir, Willy Thomas, Lukas De Wolf or Bob Snijers in De dag .
Is it all top then? After a few episodes you get more info about the plan of the hostage takers and rationally seen that is a bit of a jerk. Because to get money now? Only then are you so far along in the story and there is suspension or disbelief : you frown the eyebrows but pick it up anyway. Oh yes, and the way in which the media are shown is also quite caricatural, but in that bed many series are sick. Television will reinvent the day or maybe not, but it’s damn good television. After Beau séjour and Tabula rasa set the bar a little higher last year, De dag is doing the same now. And now quickly look at the last six episodes.
