Dr Hynek’s quest

Project Blue Book is back with Aidan Gillen!

In season 1 Dr Hyneck mockingly asks if he was hired to investigate “flying saucers”. Captain Quinn replies they simply wanted him to establish the truth– that UFO doesn’t exist. As Dr Hyneck started investigating, he realised that he had gone into something more than they can handle. 

Season 2 shows Dr Hyneck in a new light. He asks more questions and lets us know that it is not very easy to fool an expert eye. In hindsight, given that he works with pretty dangerous people, this is not a great idea. The good news is that honest scientist finally gets it and becomes a mole in the system to keep on working for the truth.

With the progress of the investigation, he strongly believes that something bigger is going on and he is being used to cover up. 

In season 2, Hynek confirms that beings from outer space do exist and they have been in contact with Earth for a very long time. It is only a matter of time till they pay a visit here. 

Mimi 

Mimi, Hynek’s wife, ends up being more involved in his secret work. The couple realises that all this secret-keeping is taking a toll on their relationship and they don’t have anyone else to trust but each other.  

Michael Quinn

Captain Quinn is the one who is sent by his boss Harding to meet the traumatized soldier in Fargo. At the same, he is asked to recruit Dr J.Allen Hyneck to debunk all alien theories. 

Initially, he emerges as a devoted soldier who only believes in facts, figures and whatever his Boss tells him to believe in. After meeting Dr Hyneck and facing some strange situations himself, Quinn changes a lot. Finding the truth becomes his mission too.

Conclusion 

The docudrama is one of its kind. The topic itself gets a full score for showing the terrifying side of the  State and its obsession to control the narrative. It is the State that decides on the truth as well. The show has done a fine job regarding the portrayal of one man’s search for truth and the State’s old habit to oppress him.
