Adverts?
Why has this show got adverts? Season 1 was in 4k and an Amazon Original. We pay for Prime to avoid adverts.

Prime content with adverts?
I pay subscriptions to streaming services because I don't want 3-4 minute advert breaks, every 20 minutes.
I enjoyed the first season, but I won't bother watching beyond the first 20 minutes of season 2. If Amazon decides this is the way to go, I'll be cancelling and keeping the subs that don't force me to twiddle my fingers while I'm persuaded to make purchases.

Amazing!
I thought this was great and even better than season one! I loved how it stuck to the core elements of the Eagle Strike book whilst also mixing it up to make it fresh - it was very enjoyable and the cast is amazing! Looking forward to Season 3!

Awesome, Epic, Great Fun! Shows how a solid cast can excel with the right story!
Well, here we are again. An Alex Rider series. But season 2.
Sometimes shows fall short in season 2, but this is quite the opposite.
It's another electrifying spy adventure, with the great cast again. The villains are epic and mysterious, which works well with the awesome hero's of the series. It's like Yin and Yang, perfectly poised together.
Otto Farrant does another amazing job of bringing Alex Rider to life and the rest of the cast help the story progress incredibly well. We find out more information about the mysterious Scorpia and Thomas Levin perfectly captures the confident and mysterious Scorpia assassin.
This series pays tribute to the Alex Rider books and it brings those stories to life, but in a new way in order to continue to surprise and thrill the audience.
This series has done an epic job so far and I can't wait to see where the story goes next!

Brilliant!
S2 of Alex Rider is everything I hoped for it to be and more! It managed to stay true to the main plot lines from the 4th book (Eagle Strike), whilst also having its own fresh take 😎. The acting, filming and special effects were fantastic and that S2 ending already has me begging for a S3!

Like S1, the show cleverly changed outdated concepts to match the current times, e.g. like the change of Feathered Serpent 2 from an PS2 exclusive to an actual gaming app (and then VR).

*spoilers ahead* the new characters for this season, like Kyra and Willby from S1, were great additions to the show. Smoking Mirror allowed there to be more tension between Alex and The Department when he finally catches up with them and it leads to one of my favourite scenes from the whole season, the confrontation between Alex and Yassen in the abandoned warehouse (but to be honest, all Alex-Yassen complexions were really good 😅). The new CIA director placed unwanted pressure on Blunt and unhinged him (in a way). Jack sacrificed her new job and a possible relationship to have Alex's (and Tom and Kyras) back(s) when he(they) most needed it. Back to Yassen, he could potentially be still alive!? This would be a different turn from the books!!!
(I'm guessing he escaped but he bled to death...?)

Its Brilliant!!
Well i thought season 1 was good but this was miles better. 2 slightly slow episodes to start but then full on adventure. Well done to all concerned, cast, crew everyone and to do this stylish, slick production during a pandemic, well you should get awards.
I've read some of the so called tv critics and they're synopsis is poor, this is a brilliantly written and performed action thriller and not great for anyone with a bit of blood pressure, its edge of the seat stuff and in my eyes better written and acted than 007. BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!

Enjoyed the second season!
As a lover of the books growing up, I'm enjoying the differences and the creative choices they have made with the tv show. Unlike the movie, which had too much of a childish, slapstick comic vibe I did not rate, this adaptation has the balance pretty much right. Solid serious drama with layers of humor and character. There are still a few over dramatised childish moments "look what I can do" moments, a few cringey lines that seem to pitch to a children's audience, but its all forgiven as the majority of the show is very good indeed. Will be waiting for a series three, assumedly based on Scopia, as so far we have had point-blank and now eagle strike. My favourite character in Alex rider has always been the mysterious Yassen, and we seem to have a good focus on him in the adaptation, which is, I will admit, a very happy surprise. Would recommend as easy enjoyable watching!
