This show has made me realize that I have a thing for women with asymmetric mullets that look like they were done with hedge clippers.

For real. I figured I was the only one. Iím not sure how I got here but Iím not questioning it.

This show looks amazing

The only effect I think looks kinda bad is when they close-up on Mother Necro's face, but it also works because the character is a weird loving marble robot god.

I was pleasantly surprised by the desert set they used and wish the new Dune movie would have made even a little attempt at looking more otherworldly like this show did.

They're shooting on location. If it were a set they'd not be doing as much day-for-night filming.

South Africa, wooo.

Scary ghost dog isnít wrong. Outside of the big snake skeleton and a couple other things like the CGI mother flybys, itís pretty bland, visually.

If they can tell a good enough story though, the sets wonít matter as much


^^^^^ I said a couple pages ago, but those day for night shots really bug me for some reason

Yeah, I knew what you were referring to. I love that "To be discontinued..." at the end of the episode. When you said piths the first thing I thought of was Dark Helmet tho

They have underaged actors. Nightshoots were never going to happen.

Are Marcus and sue supposed to be wearing atheist gear in ep2? I guess there's no suns on it and a big 'A' on the helmet so I guess yes.



Also lol at using 20th century kinetic weapons when you have FTL tech. Would have been more realistic if they had 200 year old AKs.

I wonder if the visor protects against necro blast. They never show what the standard weapon used to fight the necros is either. The capture electro gun doesn't count.

Visor seemed like it was for protecting against the collateral effects of a passing shrieking necro, if one has locked onto you youíre probably hosed!

I mean it makes sense if they make a weapon that depends on you looking at the source they would make a counter to it in the form of some eye gear.

Now a necro with a gun would be pretty brutal.

Paul is Muad'dib.

1. Little mouse

2. He is from another world, and has a voice. Therefore Lisan-al gaib

3. Schlepps across a desert

4. Mother is basically a bene gesserit if you think about it

I really like this dumb show. There is some really fantastic acting for the most part. I'm in love with the newly ordained prophet and seer and I think I almost have his haircut. I'm gonna shave the sides and see how it looks, already got the mullet.It's gonna look real bad

There's an AI or something that's messing with Mother, Ragnar, rapist man and Father, yeah?

It's the voice on the ship that told rapist man to be a poo poo, it's the voice that infected Ragnar through the earwig device and is communicating with him. It got into Mother via the augmented reality device and Father via the new processor, and it's what's causing them to see Tally everywhere yeah?

That's my theory anyway.

The story is actually about how there are nowhere near enough survivors or embryos to have a genetically viable human colony so we just get to watch the end of the human race while Mother tries to figure out where she went wrong

I don't understand why they didn't call the androids Banshees with their power set. Mother better raise some undead minions at some point.

Yeah I was wondering why OG Campion sent out 12 embryos when that isn't anywhere near enough to rebuild the human race. Mother would go batshit after the first disease wiped out ant colony that took root.

There were more, but they could only remove twelve from the craft before it fell beyond their reach.

Yeah, even in Interstellar, there were thousands of embryos and Anne Hathaway and a sentient Tetris piece were going to raise them alone.

12 people just isnít enough genetic diversity to restart humanity. You would need hundreds or thousands, not dozens.

I just went and rewatched the opening, there were only 7 metal cases on the wall and no room for there to be more hiding away, so best case there were 42 babies
