Infinity Train is a (as of now) mini-series airing on Cartoon Network from Aug. 5-9. For now, it is ten 11 minute episodes. Each night two episodes will air. The show is also available on the Cartoon Network app.
The event is over, but with the promise of “Infinity Train will return.” These last two episodes answered all of the important questions. I won’t go into them here because I don’t want to spoil it and I think you should watch it yourself. But, I will say the ending was amazing. I’ll also say that I’m glad it is revealed that the person vaporized by the light in the first episode wasn’t killed.
I do want to talk about the questions left unanswered. We find out who the Conductor is and why they are against Tulip while the train is for her. We also found out how the cars and cockroach things are created. We also get a hint at what the numbers mean. What isn’t answered is where the train came from and its purpose.
Lastly, we don’t know why the land the train travels through is barren and full of those creatures. I guess the shows hints at it a bit. Tulip is shown a picture of the train’s engine. She sees that it has cannons, which can be repurposed to make the cockroaches. The cannons can alter reality, such as changing Atticus into a cockroach or changing a computer into a corgi. So, it is possible the Conductor used the front cannons to shape the land it travels through.
But, what I mostly liked about the show is that the big questions were answered. It felt complete. I didn’t feel like, “Great, now I have to wait till the next season.” I was left feeling like the story was done, but at the same time excited for the next one.
I would highly recommend this show to those who like puzzles, mysteries, and fantasy. It comes with action, suspense, emotion, and humor. The animation is also great. The acting was well done. I continually felt like I was watching a high-budget movie. Also, it felt like the world was completely flushed out. 4.8/5
Until the next wormhole…thanks for reading.
