Ridley Scott produced scifi series Raised by Wolves drops today on HBO Max. Will probably check out after work.

Raised by Wolves revolves around an android, called the Mother, who was designed to nurture human children on a new, desolate-looking planet after the earth was destroyed due to a great war.

Can’t wait for this one.

EP 1 has an A- on AVClub, 8.9/10 on IMDB, 75% on RT, but as I understand it, most of those reviews were based on the 6 EP (out of 10) critic screeners.

I'm pretty stoked, even decent sci-fi is hard to come by.
OK. So I just finished episode 1. Could be really good. Interesting start.

Oh, I see see Primal is on HBOMAXULTRAPLUS+

Very cool animated series, it was developed by Genndy Tartakovsky, who's worked on a ton of animated series, including the full creative monty for Dexter's Laboratory and Samurai Jack (both just fantastic).

It's only 5 EPs, er, more are scheduled, who knows ...

So it's a caveman, and a dinosaur (trust me, it works ...), very violent, and there's __zero__ dialog. It's pretty brilliant.

Sorry, dude bro, but you're wrong. Cobra Kai was rad.
I’m holding you to that. Just finished ep 5. I’m being dragged along by pure nostalgia. I was 14 when Karate Kid came out and my first name is Dan. I’ve been called “Daniel-san” 100,000 times.

Geez, man. I'm sorry. :(

Though seriously. It's not what I'd call a great show, but it is a fun show. It's pure popcorn entertainment. Nothing less, nothing more.

Just got done watching up to episode 3 and I won't give anything away but so far this show is absolutely terrific IMO. One of the best new shows I've seen since the early seasons of GOT.

So far, I love how they point out that both atheism and religion can be equally ridiculous. Additionally, it's hard to root for a good guy or a bad guy in this one as they both have redeeming qualities, I'm just interested in seeing where they go with it.

Just finished episode 2. Unusual show, no idea where they’re going with this.
