Brave New World: Season 1 (2020)


Season 1
Brave New World

Critics Consensus

Brave New World is sleek and seductive, but not very daring, only skimming the surface of Aldous Huxley's dystopian epic without plumbing its philosophical depths.

Audience Reviews for Brave New World: Season 1

  • Sep 09, 2021
    Outstanding. The acting is across the board excellent and the film captures the class dynamics of the social engineering in the "Brave New World" skillfully. We see how the alphas lead lives of conspicuous consumption based on the servitude of gammas and betas. Wish they had explored the science and philosophical underpinnings of the book to the same extent Westworld & Mr. Robot do with their respective subject matters but the series is still very well done.
  • Jul 10, 2021
    Each episode left me wanting more! As the story unfolds, so does the complexity of the human condition and the ripple effects across society from individual emotions and behavior.
  • Jun 30, 2021
    This thing not only has nothing to do with the great novel it takes the name and setting from but after the third episode it is a direct antithesis of the ideas in the book. It is what you get when you order Westworld from Ali Express

    This show was the best ive seen in so long.....that was a mistake been canned

    Of course someone had to come along and butcher Huxleys most renowned work. Hopefully these hacks stay away from other classics because the world is full of people that are too lazy to read and have skewed perceptions based off this sort of cheap entertainment as it is.
  • May 13, 2021
    A fantastic modern update to the original story, stripping away some of the anachronistic elements of the book that don't fit anymore.
  • Apr 14, 2021
    A series describing the almost same situation as we live in nowadays, with perfect actors like Joseph Morgan and great characters! It's such a pity that it has been cancelled!
  • Mar 23, 2021
    Naively, I imagined the film would follow Huxley's chilling, thought-provoking book. Ha! The vague similarities pale before the many bewildering differences, including main characters of the wrong sex, harrowing violence, frequent dull orgies - and an impenetrable back-story involving clones, mind control and an AI brain that apparently has conjured up this whole Brave New World. The sound track is mumbled and hard to follow, though the acting is excellent and the cgi sets are simply stunning. But the series is destined to be a flop because no amount of technical excellence or tantric sex can fill the yawning void where the Biblical, Shakespearean and philosophical overtones should lie.
  • Mar 18, 2021
    Sumptuous (and expensive-looking) set design. Great story, characters, and offers an examination of confronting our inner truths, not running away from them, to gain a rich and full emotional life. Why there are mixed critical reviews, is beyond me.
  • Mar 09, 2021
    The concept is nothing new, but it was interesting to have in the background while doing other things. The plot moves either way too slow or way too fast. All relationships are driven by sex (and there's lots of it). I feel like the 'savage' was supposed to be a deep character but to me he came off as an icredibly shallow caricature, making him unbearable to watch at times. Not a very striking show but overall watchable.
