I gave this a positive review because it's genuinely interesting, but, as with all Netflix content these days, the politics are so overt that anything beyond the most surface reading of the show reveals an insidious critique of men and fathers as toxic and broken. All the issues the characters have in this show are directly attributable to their repressed stoic fathers, which is not quite as insidious as the portrayal of men by Homer Simpson, but it becomes tiring when paired with the tokenized homosexuality that are pandering in the extreme. Ultimately though, I recommend watching the show, but don't think about it too hard lest you be driven insane. Unless that is, you're a blue haired cat lady.
This series proves, once again, that the best stuff on Netflix is the stuff not made by Netflix, or even Americans.
There's no great lesson to be learned here, no witty ending, no meat. I kept expecting a great punchline, but instead I left this thinking about the time lost and how this genre of time travel movie has been done so much better than this. Ultimately, I was left watching another Netflix woke production that depicts characters that exist in some other dimension, but not one in which the majority of people can relate to.
Sure, there are some derivative elements of the show, but I'd say that the main reason this show received so many bad critical reviews was because of its allusions to the insanity of social justice culture and Feminism. The show is, like all great Sci-fi, cerebral and an amazing social commentary.
