Tensions and horrors

Working on an oil platform in the North Sea is not easy. Life is hard and difficulties are many. The protagonists of the TV series know this very well The rigcalled to confront a threat even more dangerous than usual and much more frightening because it does not belong to this world.

After a power failure, the Kinloch Bravo platform is shaking with strange tremors. All communications are down and a thick, anomalous fog envelops everything. One of the crew members was also seriously injured in an inexplicable way: “There is something out there” is the warning he gives to his companions. But what?

A series of strange events take place and no one has an explanation, not even the plant manager, Magnus MacMillan, played by Iain Glen, or communications manager Fulmer Hamilton, played by Martin Compston. As the son of a man who actually worked on an oil rig, Compston knows how suggestive the setting of the Prime Video TV series The Rig is: “An oil rig is by nature a quiet place. The same goes for Kinloch Bravo, before darkness and mystery takes over. As paranoia and dislikes mount, it becomes difficult to avoid each other: there are no places to hide.

One of the reasons for the tension is given by the two worlds that meet and collide on a platform. On the one hand, there is that of those who are called upon to manage it on dry land and in the mold. And, on the other hand, that of the workers who, outside, get their hands dirty and face emergencies. Fulmer straddles the two universes but is also in a relationship with scientist Rose Mason (Emily Hampshire), an oil company representative who is seen by all as a corporate cost cutter.

Among the other interpreters of the TV series Prime Video The rig Also noteworthy are the actors Mark Bonnar (as the foreman Alwyn Evans), Owen Teale (as the head driller Lars Hutton), Rchenda Sandall (as the doctor Cat Braithwaite) and Stuart McQuarrier (as the head chef Colin Murchison).
