Ridley Scott directs the first two episodes about a far-future post-apocalyptic attempt to save humanity (destroyed by a fanatical religious war) by sending androids and human embryos to the potentially habitable (real) Kepler 22b. But wait, of course there's more.

His son directs the third episode. I've only watched the first ep so far, but I'm in. Fucking Ridley Scott androids. Ragnar from Vikings plays a kind of space templar.

Watch a trailer here.

(if you're in Australia, it's on Foxtel and Binge)

I saw the commercial for this somewhere. Looked interesting.

I want to watch this but Roku and WB need to get their act together first.

Thanks for the heads up on this Tale. The first 40mins of the first ep was... not exactly predictable but unsurprising, then things went off the rails nicely, really enjoyed it. Looking forward to more.

Promethinator. Terminetheus? It's got those two vibes and its own stuff going on.

I finished episode 3 and think I had a good time, but I was watching with the sound too low (while working from home near wife and child) on a new streaming service that doesn't yet have closed captions, so I missed a lot of what was conveyed in the dialogue. I need to watch through again.

When she crossed over, she was just a ship. But when she came back... she was bullshit!

First episode was good enough I'll binge the rest in a couple of months.

I'm liking it.  Reminds me of the New Wave sci-fi stories that I grew up on.  Lots going on.

Do you also object to Binge? That is Foxtel's new Netflix-priced streaming service (in Australia). It's on there, along with all the other HBO stuff. You don't need overpriced Foxtel cable.

Yeah, I've been in the fuck foxtel camp for years - but Binge is pretty nice and reasonably priced.  And I'm really enjoying working through the HBO back catalogue - well worth $14/mo.

I sorta object to anything News Corp, but I might give it a go.

So...did that little lander ship go through the planets core and come out the other side? cause if so they should be making all their ships out of whatever they made that of.

This show has a lot going on. I feel satisfied like I've seen a well-constructed, quite cerebral, ten-episode movie. I'm kind of awestruck.

The show has a lot going on but I'm not convinced it knows how to resolve any of it. Virtually every plot thread introduced has been left dangling until next season.

Fine with me. I want more. Ridley Scott knows what's actually going on in every plot thread, and here are his thoughts: Its a very rare bird, this story. I thought: Oh my god. Ive got to do this. Ive got to set the pace and direct the pilot.

Another thought in response to Threash:

Wanting more is fine, but I'm wary of stories that just keep throwing ideas out there without resolving some of them. Also, as much as I like Ridley Scott (and we've rewatched a ton of his stuff in our Discord movie nights this year) I'd be a lot more convinced that he knows where everything is going if he hadn't made Prometheus and Alien: Covenant.

Lots of info in this Q&A. (and spoilers if you haven't watched the show)

I found the answers sat well with how I interpreted what was going on. Only added a couple of pieces of genuine inside info.

Binged this over the weekend now that I can get Max.  Hoo boy did this show get freaking weird.

We're working through it now too. It's plenty weird.
