As many of you probably also recently subscribed to HBO Max for Wonder Woman 1984, I now have access to the other goodies on the site. While I may not keep HBO long term, I wanted to get the most bang for my buck before canceling the service. Which lead me to Doom Patrol and then Raised by Wolves. Though I am a hardcore lover of vampires, the title of the show threw me off. But that was short-lived, no actual wolves are in the show. (thank the vampire gods)
Talk about a hardcore style sci-fi, holey freaking damn moley this show had me hooked from the first episode. Even though, to be quite honest, I had no damn clue what was going on. It's one of those shows that spoon-feeds you the tasty bits. I wanted the whole damn meal, and the freaking take-home baggy. What I did not expect at all was how awesome this show was going to be. So many twists and turns, so many meaningful and unique characters, so beautifully acted and executed. I can't say how much I enjoyed this show!
It's dark and it makes no apologies, you might get stabbed in the back or your throat sliced. You just never know what's coming and you love every second of the anticipation. The android characters are riveting! Mother is a badass and I loved every single thing about her, the good programs, and the ALL the bad. Watching her command the scene was everything I could have wished for in a sci-fi thriller style show. I can only hope that the second season is coming soon, cause my budget won't allow me to keep indulging long term. But hey, for now, this was one hell of a ride.
