Following the drama of several relationships, especially a serial-dater.

Understated but riveting; recommended. I wonder if there's a decent quality copy out there.

  • Trailer
  • Inappropriately-rated, this doesn't have much of anything close to R-rated, and what came close could have been adjusted slightly without changing anything. It's odd they didn't lean into that R-rating.

In a fantasy world where people awaken with certain strengths, one among them becomes a hero to fight a demon lord army. But this follows an everyday guy.

Kinda okay I guess.

The axis powers won World War II.

It's kind of okay, but it drags its feet then goes woke.

  • Science fiction starts far later, making this a drama.

Humanity has been infected by nanobots controlled by an AI that ends violence, which, although about as horrifying as it sounds, many people want it and some even work for it.

Slow and halting, but with a good premise. It leans heavily into acting, which isn't at the level needed to make this shine. Still, it's not a turd.

This would have made for an excellent pilot episode.

A key survivor of a world destroyed by a plague is forced to save it. I think.

It's generally slow and boring; luke warm at best, but recommended if you're into this sort of thing.

A retired couple has a secret chamber buried in their backyard that leads to a deserted planet. When an enigmatic young man arrives, their quiet existence is upended and the mysterious Chamber they thought they knew so well turns out to be much more than they could have ever imagined.

I can't say I like this because it doesn't do enough world building and doesn't really develop an arc with the time they have.

  • They really, really, lean into age in this show.

A mysterious message is detected by an astronaut, who learns its senders are on their way to Earth.

Fair, and moody, but it feels like there should be more content.
