"He survived, he’s now in Disneyland in Orlando, and no way am I going back there. How did he end up in Disneyland? I saw him in Disneyland, Jesus Christ!"

I just watched Ep1, HQ quality and Ep2 and Ep3 have also been leaked on Internet. *SPOILER*: -1 There are Biblical connotations (Genesis) Cain and Abel (Suggestive scene) -2 Members of the Ark and Mithraic people are talking about the Prophecy (I couldn't figure out what they are talking about) -3 Mother is an android who suffers schizophrenia, and she does not know how to funnel that rage into himself, clear parallels with Ash in Alien, she spits milk incessantly with violent reactions when she is enraged. The vision and panoramic view of the planet is amazing, starships, costume etc But I'm afraid this script will lead nowhere.

Ragnar Lothbrok's raids are getting more and more daring

Correct me if I am mistaken but the android in the last picture that DK posted looks a bit like General Grievous in Star Wars 2. It actually looks kind of cool, also the elongated thing that it has for a nose looks a bit like it was when we saw the Space Jockey in the first Alien movie.

Pitch Black has David Twohy as a director, he was involved with one of the scripts for Alien 3. He was the first one that mentioned a prison planet that later became Fiorina 161, the planet where the prison was located. One of the interesting things about movies is that you can see similarities with other ones, intentional or not. This only shows that it is difficult to come up with something of your own, since many things have been done before.

"Now he can stretch out without being shackled to the Alien universe."

If that’s the case I'm glad if he won't get to direct a third prequel because what I have seen of RBW isn't very interesting. Another crazy android, where have we seen that before? ;) Seriously, if people will find it interesting then good for them but I just feel bored from watching the trailers.

Roger G:

That sounds crappy, but then Scott is a visualizer that got to have a decent script otherwise he is screwed. My reason for boycotting this is that I am not even the least interested in an android series or movie that has crappy human characters. Both the story and the characters got to work, the look comes after that. Unfortunately Scott just seems to be able to handle the visuals even though he's very good at it.

Nope, I'll watch something else since I am tired of the android stuff but it seems to have some sort of take on religion which is interesting. As far as the video-clip is concerned, to me it is just another AI gone bonkers in other words boring.

I take it your more of a IPHONE kind of a Guy ;)

Joke ;)

I hope this Series does well.... because maybe it could lead Ridley Scott to look at doing another Sci-Fi TV show but then maybe ONE that does-not rely on the A.I Theme so he can try something Different.

Frame of the scene about the painting hanging on the wall appearing in Ep. 2, there are many subliminal messages, but if they don't assembling them correctly you are breaking the DNA of the story. For someone who has seen it who can give us an empirical explanation. SPOILER:

Roger G I have only seen episode 1 but noticed drawings in the "orange dome" over time.

Sep-08-2020 3:52 PM

@DK I'm waiting for cave scene, I don't know in which episode it will happen, we'll see if these tracks lead us somewhere, or are like in Prometheus, simple holes.


Sep-08-2020 3:57 PM

They may or may not mean anything except for being Easter eggs. I can only speak to an episode that everyone has access to over YouTube.


Sep-08-2020 5:06 PM

Like I said, I can't watch any video online now, so I have to satisfy my curiosity reading the spoiler filled reviews.

If you care to read a good one, you can find it on IGN.

Not for BigDave, he has enough patience to wait for the show.

Fair enough. But sometimes the best way to avoid temptation is to simply yield to it.


Sep-09-2020 5:19 AM

Well unless i use a Proxy Server/VPN then i CANT access the HBO Free 1st Episode.

@Roger G

I cant seem to Access that Image on my Computer, i did have a Quick Look on a Phone but the Screen is Small and Image not Clear so its HARD to work out so i need to see the Image some other way and i can give better TWO Cents.

From what LITTLE i saw of it and taking into Account the Mithraich (Sun Worshipers) then maybe it bares more to the Story of Icarus

R.I.P Sox  01/01/2006 - 11/10/2017


Sep-09-2020 5:45 AM

Nope i cant view the image anywhere NOW so i have to go by the Few Seconds i had a Quick Look at it.

The Painting that MOST resembles it is

The Fall of Phaeton by Sebastiano Ricci

This MAY-NOT be the same, its just what i think it looked a bit like from the FEW Seconds i only got to see the IMAGE.

The Story of Phaeton is Similar to Icarus to a Degree and i think maybe BOTH of these Stories could Connect to what we may be shown in RBW.... but then i have YET to see the TV Show and could be WAY OFF BASE.

I can from the Trailers only assume that Mankind had Advanced Science to FAR to Create some Synthetic Beings who became Powerful, that it Caused a Religious Cult to go to WAR against Science and Atheist i can only assume that MOTHER saw that Religion had always Caused Downfall for Mankind and Conflict and maybe is Sentient and Feared for her own Species that HER KIND had led to the Destruction of Earth.

I will assume some of the REBELS (Atheist) saw that they have to SAVE our Species and Tasked the TWO Androids to go to Kepler22B to Raise Embryo's and Start Again.

Maybe the Mithraich Religion has some Armageddon Prophecy about the Destruction of Earth and HOW their Cult/Followers will Inherit a NEW EDEN and so they are OFF to Kepler22B which may HOLD some Significance to them in some Prophecy.

The Arrival of the Mithraich Concerns Mother she knows if they Discover she is a Android they would Destroy her, and she would also FEAR that the Cult of the Mithraich would just lead to the SAME DOWNFALL of Mankind again.

So her Agenda is to STOP THEM and maybe Rescue some Children to TRY and Raise to be about Science and not Gods but that has Conflicts.

Even though i have NOT seen the TV Series i would be Drawn to think that WHEN/IF we get to a Season TWO we could see MOTHER get a GOD Complex and wish to RULE the Planet Kepler22B as a God and develop her OWN kind of Cult of Worship to HER.

so she kind of would BECOME what she had at First been FIGHTING against.

Sep-09-2020 12:24 PM

It's funny, all this reminds me Prometheus, the painting is the fall of mankind and a clear cult of the Sun, but I can't capture the image very clearly, I did anothe one below...the painting is beautiful, @BIGDAVE The Fall of Phaeton probably match with this point of view is very interesting painting... RBW has something mythological without a doubt, and another thing is clear, it is a direct criticism to the religious dogma, All of these fears assume that religious belief is dogmatic, intolerant... If someone is strongly religious today, maybe wont be amused at all. SPOILER: there is an unholy/profanation scene in EP 2 one of the priests carries in his hands the sacred host and a chalice to some members that are departing in the Ark, this is a clear example.

Another frame:

It seems there is a human or humanoid crucified upside down in that picture, tried to edit it to better see details, but quality of original does not allow much improvement.

Where is this picture from,  Roger G?

"He survived, he’s now in Disneyland in Orlando, and no way am I going back there. How did he end up in Disneyland? I saw him in Disneyland, Jesus Christ!"


Sep-09-2020 4:15 PM

Mother is a Necromancer, a battle model repurposed to raise children. That's why she is feared by the Mithraic.

I can't wait to see the series, until then I am open to spoilers, that won't make me enjoy less each episode, on the contrary, I would be more attentive to details that otherwise I might miss without the spoilers.

"He survived, he’s now in Disneyland in Orlando, and no way am I going back there. How did he end up in Disneyland? I saw him in Disneyland, Jesus Christ!"


Sep-09-2020 4:51 PM

SuperAlien I watched the first episode off YouTube several times now and keep finding little details- and a couple flaws. Mother is a very interesting character and there are things that are strange but will likely be explained as the story unfolds. Right now I can see at least three major things that will develop but I don't want to spoil anything. The first episode is well paced and even has some humor that balances well with some tense and dark scenes. The musical score really helps too. It's very much about religion/atheism and starts to point out the pros and cons of both camps. 


Sep-09-2020 5:59 PM

Thanks dk.

Sounds like my kind of show, and by the time I will be able to see it, I guess all epispdes will be released. I'm preparing for binge watching.

I am glad they got it right with the musical score. That's one of the things I like at Ridley Scott's films, although the visuals are great, the score and the actors' voices spice up the whole package, sometimes I just like to close my eyes and immerse in the soundscape.

It's gonna be a cool winter!

Collider posted an exclusive clip from episode 4, tempting BigDave again.


"He survived, he’s now in Disneyland in Orlando, and no way am I going back there. How did he end up in Disneyland? I saw him in Disneyland, Jesus Christ!"


Sep-09-2020 6:46 PM

I am not a big fan of the this show...I like some of the special effects and that is about it. This looks more like a rough draft on screen then anything else....and it looks like they had a lot of money to do this but could not get the concepts right. 

No spoilers but this has taken a lot out of the RS playbook from other films....these androids are horrible in my opinion.....saw better treatments back in the day on star trek tv shows.....this is no Michael Fasbender playing a synthetic - not even close.

The screaming part is cheap and very annoying.....we get that the mechanism can create high frequency waves....less is more.....and the fact that it is a female characterization with the screaming could be misconstrued as potentially sexist....

I get that the show is a dystopian portrayal and yet even with the sparse levity that is there the show just seems dark and overcast like a cloudy day overall.  

Everything has a serious undertone to the performances like the characters are not happy in their roles....a lot of the actors are young so this happens on productions like this with inexperienced directors....I give this so far a C- for the effort; but, there is nothing here to love or keep....

Moving on and cutting my losses with this....gonna fast forward through most of it because you kinda have was not worth the effort in certain parts.


Sep-09-2020 7:00 PM

BlackAnt Though I disagree on a some points, your assessment sounds fairly reasonable. I am only speaking of the first episode open to the public and figure things will be fleshed out later. I am confused on Mother's powers but will ride with it since it's only the first episode.

Roger G

Sep-09-2020 7:29 PM

@SUPERALIEN That painting appears on Ep 2 did you copy that? CLUES and "The Three Little Pigs": For me the allegory or fable about "The Three Little Pigs", represent a numerology, is another clue to keep in mind, thinking the script is well developed this time and there are no flaws or continuity, in my opinion must represent certain points to be discussed. The word "three", In particular, the Pythagorean doctrine considered "three" as the first "real" number, since it was the first one that could be physically manifested through the geometrical formation of the triangle. It is not surprising, then, that three represents a sacred number in almost all the world's religions (there we have the Christian Trinity, the Hindu Trimurti or the Wiccan Triple Goddess, among others). And likewise, it is not surprising that three has always been a very special number throughout history, loaded with symbolism and meaning. Three were the Gods that controlled the world's empire in Greco-Roman mythology. Three were the names of the three Parcae who influenced the lives of men. Three are components of the Holy Christian Trinity. Three also referred to as the (Three) Wise Men or (Three) Kings. Three vertices formed the love triangle that led to the decadence of Camelot.


Sep-09-2020 8:11 PM

Roger G you are over thinking. 

This way you could find some mythical dimension in the Snow White and the seven dwarves, seven being a magical number as well, while BlackAnt could say the story is sexist, racist and sizeist.

C'mon people, just enjoy the show or at least let others enjoy it.

"He survived, he’s now in Disneyland in Orlando, and no way am I going back there. How did he end up in Disneyland? I saw him in Disneyland, Jesus Christ!"


Sep-09-2020 8:23 PM

SuperAlien Yes, but that is part of the fun around here. We can enjoy or trash but we discuss and debate. I disagree with BlackAnt and that's ok since he does bring up some decent points. Roger G and BigDave can get way deep into the weeds but it's cool that a show can inspire that engagement. As much as I like it, I can even troll a bit and call Mother a Karen!

Roger G

Sep-09-2020 8:55 PM

@DK RBW is worth it for now, (just a few flaws that I won't comment to be potential Spoilers), don't give up, let's wait for the next events.


Sep-09-2020 9:26 PM

the fact that it is a female characterization with the screaming could be misconstrued as potentially sexist....

Fair point. Maybe they couldn't afford Rob Halford screaming for vengeance /s  Good screams aren't cheap, and cheap screams aren't good.


Sep-09-2020 9:59 PM

Rob Halford's screams didn't hurt anybody, so casting him as Mother would defeat the purpose.

On the other hand, Amanda Collin's screams hurt a lot, both on / off screen.

"He survived, he’s now in Disneyland in Orlando, and no way am I going back there. How did he end up in Disneyland? I saw him in Disneyland, Jesus Christ!"


Sep-09-2020 10:29 PM

Victims of Changes, Screaming for Vengeance and Pain Killer prove that he has/had the chops for the screams. I know it's way off topic, but I am also adding some distracting levity to a serious OT like we traditionally do around here. The screams literally melted faces, which is very metal. Halford's screams melted faces too. That's what a metal god does- all fear the Sentinel.  Cheers!
