Have you gotten tired of watching and re-watching the dark-topia television show named The Handmaid’s Tale? Well, here’s another dark-topia show for you to sink your teeth into. This new telvision show is named Brave New World. It is available on the Peacock television streaming service.
Brave New World is about a strange and a futuristic place named “New London.” In “New London” everyone is happy. Everyone belongs to everyone else. Privacy is a myth.
Everyone in “New London” is divided-up into categories. There are the Alpha+, Alphas, and Alphas-. There are the Beta+, the Betas, and the Beta-. Finally, there are the Gammas, Deltas, and Epsilons.
In “New London,” everyone knows their place. Everyone knows where they belong.
And all you need to boost your spirits is a soma.
In this new world monogamy is a mythic ritual of the “savages.” Everyone in “New London” is expected to sleep with as many people as possible. In fact, it is looked down upon to sleep with the same person more than once.
The two characters, Bernard Marx and Lenina Crown, are a part of this world. However, their perspective is altered when they meet a “savage.” The “savage” is named John. He lives in the old world that is foreign to Marx and Crown. Can he influence the two enough in the world of “New London” to change things forever?
Brave New World is another ground-breaking dark-topia television show like The Handmaid’s Tale. However, it is not as dark as that Hulu television show. It was originally a book of the same name. The book, Brave New World, is written by Aldous Huxley.
I enjoyed this great and intriguing new television show. There are only nine episodes in its first season. However, the show made me ache for more. I hope more seasons are forthcoming.
Do I need to say it? I give Brave New World a 5-star rating.
