A bad single mother raises a selfish daughter who, to get attention, almost commits second-hand genocide and grows into a woman who almost commits genocide again.

Quite watchable. I don't know why other people didn't like it. I didn't find any particular flaws.

Descendants of an apocalypse by monsters remained walled in their defences.

Brutal and riveting. Really great, but it's actually quite scarring so you want to be good in life before watching this.

In a world where superpowered people are relegated to second class citizenry, one man struggles to make money for his dying mother.

From acting through to story, this is really good all around.

Painfully mid.

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 Tangle - (2019 movie) poster

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.
