THE MAJORITY OF critics have reacted negatively to the news that Nicola Sturgeon has ordered a sequel to the entertaining Scottish Independence Referendum of September 2014.
“The drama, the hope, that plot twist and Christ, that depressing ending, the first referendum had everything. How are they going to match that this second time around?” queried one sceptical fan of the beloved original dramatic comedy.
“Some things should just be left alone, so we can enjoy the memory and the triumph of the original, I think we can agree it was the ending all viewers in England wanted,” chief entertainment and culture critic for The Telegraph Marion Shields queried, believing no sequel could possibly deliver on its promise of being just as enjoyable to the casual viewer.
Viewers of the previous referendum raved about the event in the build up to its final episode on the 18th of September, 2014 but even the most die hard fans are worried it won’t be able to recapture what made it so special the first time around.
“I’m just not sure the magic will be there. If you’re telling me they can top the performance from that bumbling idiot Cameron or find as silly and inept a villain, I sincerely doubt it,” shared Guardian theatre critic Ben Drenton.
With production already beginning this week with a possible release date of 2018 fans still have some way to go before they can sit back with their popcorn and watch the drama unfold.
“I’m sorry, but I’m 100% against it, and this May character is the most unconvincing antagonist I’ve seen for some time. Am I really supposed to believe people are going to listen to what she has to say? Plus, as much as I liked Sturgeon the first time around, that character is sort of played out now,” one cynical fan shared with WWN.
