Review of “Analog Squad”

Set in the 2000s, an era without mobile phones, “Analog Squad” delves into complex characters, blurring the lines between drama and comedy. This series masterfully captivates viewers, thanks to a well-crafted screenplay that provides a historical perspective of Thailand’s post-economic crisis and currency devaluation in the early 2000s.

Unlike many typical portrayals, “Analog Squad” presents authentic characters with depth and believability, offering a genuine glimpse into their lives through its finely written script.

The production quality is outstanding, with impressive sets, a well-crafted atmosphere, and meticulous attention to detail. The direction wisely allows the exceptional story and talented actors to take the spotlight.

It is not a story of jumpscares, but it is a story that is well told thanks to the intelligence of the dialogues and because, above all, the story and its characters have a lot to say. They all lead wayward lives, there is no perfection in anything, and everything is a mess, somewhat reflective of the global situation it aims to portray. The series has the virtue of not judging its characters and allowing the viewer to gradually grow fond of them, but it doesn’t force that affection either.

A series that manages to balance the historical perspective without ever putting it above the characters, who are also victims of that situation.

Our Opinion

A script and direction that know how to let the characters develop and come to life. There are no excessive jumpscares, no bursts of laughter, but it is a series that shines in its effortlessly natural approach.
