Raised by Wolves

Critics Consensus

Bristling with imagination and otherworldly imagery, Raised by Wolves is a bloody exploration of artificial intelligence and religious belief that will stimulate the eye and mind -- if not the heart.

  • 2d ago
    Sencillamente extraordinaria / Simply extraordinary (Español / English) Sumario Extraordinaria serie de ciencia ficción, con un relato tan inteligente como conmovedor que reflexiona lúcidamente sobre el instinto materno, la educación, la religiosidad, la evolución de la humanidad, el valor de la memoria como sustrato esencial de la identidad y la preservación de los legados. Una serie que nos prodiga a la androide Mother, un personaje con una riqueza, una potencia y una originalidad que hace mucho no encontraba en una ficción, de la mano de una actuación de Amanda Collin portentosa, magnética y absolutamente conmovedora que seguramente arrasará con varios premios. Reseña: Dos androides, Mother y Father (Amanda Collin y Abubakar Salim) dejan atrás en la Tierra un escenario apocalíptico y arriban a un lejano planeta desértico con el propósito de criar y educar a una colonia humana pionera, pero su misión se verá amenazada por la llegada de otros humanos, lo que llevará a una inevitable confrontación. Es tanta la riqueza de esta serie de ciencia ficción que uno no sabe por dónde empezar a describirla y analizarla. Podríamos empezar por su maravilloso diseño de producción, sobrio, que no busca apabullar, que combina elegantes elementos de alta tecnología con lo rústico y el primitivismo del paisaje desértico, realzado por una fotografía que le otorga una extraña luminosidad diferente a la de la Tierra. Y todo ello envuelto por una notable banda sonora. En el mismo sentido, está lograda esa mixtura de tecnología con las limitaciones que imponen los recursos naturales del planeta, donde los protagonistas se ven forzados a tratar de reproducir la revolución agrícola de la humanidad antigua. Raised by Wolves entrelaza admirablemente varios ejes temáticos. En primer lugar, la misión de Mother y Father deja atrás un escenario terrestre apocalíptico, fruto de una guerra entre un bando religioso y otro ateo. Esa confrontación entre religión y ateísmo, entre misticismo y racionalismo volverá a reproducirse en el planeta por un lado en el marco de la educación que Mother inculcará a sus niños, expresada con total naturalidad y sin subrayados y por el otro, en la interpretación de los sucesos que depara la realidad. La serie propone, en segundo lugar, una profunda reflexión acerca de la educación confrontando dos interrogantes: ¿qué significa educar a un ser humano? ¿qué significa programar a un androide? El tercer eje de la serie tiene que ver con sus miradas sobre el instinto maternal y el amor filial. Por último, rescata el valor fundamental de la identidad en la conformación de la identidad y de los legados y su preservación. La serie (producida por Ridley Scott, quien dirige algunos capítulos) combina de una manera ejemplar el drama con la ciencia ficción dura y probables toques fantásticos y recorre desde escenas de una cotidianeidad entrañable hasta la poesía o la extrema violencia, eludiendo siempre cualquier rasgo de heroísmo vacío, en un relato tan inteligente como conmovedor. Dejo para el final lo mejor de la serie: el personaje de Mother, con sus sorprendentes facetas y habilidades; una madre amantísima que las pone al servicio de sus hijos e hijas. Hace mucho que no encuentro en serie alguna un personaje con semejante riqueza, potencia y originalidad. La actuación de la actriz danesa Amanda Collin es portentosa, magnética, absolutamente conmovedora y seguramente arrasará con varios premios. La secunda el Father de Abubakar Salim, que con el correr de los capítulos se revela como mucho más que un comic relief. Tanta es la potencia de Mother, que durante parte de la serie opaca la subtrama de sus oponentes, entre quienes se encuentra una pareja conformada por Marcus y Sue (Travis Fimmel y Niamh Algar), cuya historia trae lo suyo, también, portando secretos, luces y sombras desde el bando "religioso". Summary Extraordinary science fiction series, with a story as intelligent as it is moving that lucidly reflects on the maternal instinct, education, religiosity, the evolution of humanity, the value of memory as an essential substrate of identity and the preservation of legacies . A series that lavishes on us the android Mother, a character with a richness, a power and an originality that I did not find in fiction for a long time, by the hand of a portentous, magnetic and absolutely moving performance by Amanda Collin who will surely win several awards . Review: Two androids, Mother and Father (Amanda Collin and Abubakar Salim) leave an apocalyptic scenario behind on Earth and arrive on a distant desert planet with the purpose of raising and educating a pioneering human colony, but their mission will be threatened by their arrival. from other humans, leading to an inevitable confrontation. The richness of this science fiction series is so great that one does not know where to begin to describe and analyze it. We could start with its marvelous, sober, non-overwhelming production design that combines elegant high-tech elements with the rustic and primitivism of the desert landscape, enhanced by a photograph that gives it a strange luminosity different from that of Earth. And all this surrounded by a remarkable soundtrack. In the same sense, this mixture of technology is achieved with the limitations imposed by the planet's natural resources, where the protagonists are forced to try to reproduce the agricultural revolution of ancient humanity. Raised by Wolves admirably intertwines several thematic axes. In the first place, the mission of Mother and Father leaves behind an apocalyptic earthly scenario, the result of a war between a religious side and another atheist. This confrontation between religion and atheism, between mysticism and rationalism will be reproduced on the planet on the one hand in the framework of the education that Mother will instill in her children, expressed with total naturalness and without underlining and, on the other, in the interpretation of the events that reality holds. Second, the series proposes a deep reflection on education confronting two questions: what does it mean to educate a human being? What does it mean to program an android? The third axis of the series has to do with her views on the maternal instinct and filial love. Finally, it rescues the fundamental value of identity in shaping identity and legacies and their preservation. The series (produced by Ridley Scott, who directs some chapters) combines drama with harsh science fiction and likely fantastic touches in an exemplary way, ranging from endearing everyday scenes to poetry or extreme violence, always eluding any trait of empty heroism, in a tale as intelligent as it is moving. I leave the best of the series for the end: the character of Mother, with her surprising facets and abilities; a loving mother who places them at the service of her sons and daughters. It has been a long time since I have found a character with such richness, power and originality in any series. Danish actress Amanda Collin's performance is portentous, magnetic, utterly moving, and is sure to win multiple awards. She is seconded by Abubakar Salim's Father, who with the passage of the chapters is revealed as much more than a comic relief. So much is the power of Mother, that during part of the series it overshadows the subplot of her opponents, among whom is a couple made up of Marcus and Sue (Travis Fimmel and Niamh Algar), whose story brings their own, too, carrying secrets lights and shadows from the "religious" side.

    Not sure what the point of this show is, end the season 1 ending was just weird. If they don't make a season 2 I won't be upset.

    This show is so well made, and has a fantastic setup. But it's constantly ruined by stupid themes such as ghosts, horror elements that just detract from the SciFi, and "mysterious" androids ala Blade Runner and Westworld. Also, the Marcus actor acts completely differently than the other actors, like he's in a pirate show or something. If they just kept the theme consistent and didn't have those few stupid themes, it would have been an amazing show to rave to everyone about.

    Best Sci-Fi series! Excited for season 2!

    Ventured way too far from the initial story line and did not adequately explain too many events. I knew what I signed up to watch for the first 5 or 6 episodes - after that the writers went on a crazy tangent.
  • May 11, 2021
    I enjoyed every bit of season 1, looking forward to watch season 2
  • May 02, 2021
    The first 2 episodes, directed by Ridley Scott himself, offered potent, old fashioned, sci-fi. Not "science fantasy" like Star Wars, but thought provoking sci-fi, on par with Bradbury and Assimov. I was enthralled. But by the mid- point of the season, the show was being heaped with too many sub-plots that only offered meandering drama. By the final episode, I genuinely felt insulted. Not just let down, but insulted.

    Awesome visuals, acting and story while following some common sci-fi tropes.
  • Apr 21, 2021
    "Blade Runner" and "Alien" were two sci-fi masterpieces. The thing is, what people fail to understand, is that Ridley Scott did not WRITE these masterpieces. He just directed them. There are a LOT of great directors out there. Very few great writers. A director is very important to a movie, but he is still a member of a large team of set designers, actors, editors, composers, cinematographers, writers etc in creating a movie. Ridley Scott is NOT a writer. Especially not a sci-fi writer. I don't think he's ever written anything. Though one helluva great director, Ridley Scott's writing ideas or philosophy or whatever is worthless to me. "Blade Runner 2049" looked frickin' awesome and I don't think Scott had much to do with it. The creator and writer of "Raised By Wolves" Aaron Guzikowski is equally worthless to me. From what I can gather from IMDb, he's done 4 other projects, one being "The Red Road" which was cancelled after two seasons. This is his first sci-fi endeavor. Philip K. Dick he aint! Writers should stick in their own lanes and genres. Leave the sci-fi writing to the experts who read books and not to people who rehash a few sci-fi movies they saw on Netflix and think they can write science fiction. Most Ridley Scott movies are an absolute joy to behold. Every frame is art. This is not. Boring and drab to watch. CGI was done by some kid out of high school on his Macbook. Makeup is terrible. Everyone looks like they just came from the makeup artist, especially the kids. What character am I supposed to like or care about in this show? I can only imagine that the people who rave about this show, as if they're seeing something new and unique, don't read or watch much sci-fi, like the writer.

    Each episode is a hit or miss. Some are good, some are bad (episode 5 : Infected Memory was bad) however I still enjoyed the show very much.
