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.

The remnants of humanity work to survive in a ruined world.

Gritty and good. It's got a lot of bullshit in it though, so you really have to turn your brain off.

I had someone point out this was supposed to have comedy, but it's so thin I had no idea.

Synthetic humans are created, but once again philosophers weren't involved, and when some present intelligence and emotion they take umbrage at being slaves.

A girl, engineered to be a killer, flees her keepers, but as a woman she pursues general vigilante justice by helping a crime-fighting genius.

This series hits the ground running, featuring not just a stupifyingly hot Jessica Alba, but a great world, plot and everything else.
