Ridley Scott is one of the greatest Sci-Fi directors currently working in Hollywood, He has given us countless brilliant films like Aliens (1979), The Martian, and Blade Runner (1982) and then he also made HBO Max’s brilliant series Raised By Wolves (Scott directed the first two episodes of the series). The HBO Max series follows Androids who try to raise human children on another planet long after a war has brought the apocalypse to earth and the Android is named Mother. There is a whole lot more to the series than these few lines but the experience of Raised By Wolves will be gained by watching the series, not by reading about it. Raised By Wolves was canceled after Season 2, which made all of the fans of the series really frustrated as the story was not completely told. So, if you also miss the series here are some more shows like the HBO Max you can watch after the brilliant work of Aaron Guzikowski, who created the series.
Synopsis: This enthralling drama series focuses on a suburban town of people whose preconceptions are shattered in the wake of a global event dubbed The Departure, during which, as in the rapture described in the bible, some humans were taken and others left behind. Three years after the fateful October day when 140 million people — two percent of the world’s population — disappeared without a trace, the denizens of the town of Mapleton struggle to comprehend and cope. Seen primarily through the eyes of beleaguered police chief Kevin Garvey, the series shows how ordinary folks react to inexplicable events that can unite or divide families and communities, revealing how the strain of an unprecedented calamity can turn people’s faith into cynicism, paranoia, madness or cultlike fanaticism. Created by Damon Lindelof, Emmy Award winner for Lost, and acclaimed novelist Tom Perrotta.
