In the clip, a character is offering to buy a baby (0:18). Maybe only six mothers were willing to give them up. Alternately, maybe only six of the 43 had special abilities. I suppose we we'll find out in two weeks.but I can't help but ask, if 43 were born, why are there only 6 ?

Modified a bit for the series, but...In an inexplicable worldwide event, forty-seven extraordinary children were spontaneously born by women who'd previously shown no signs of pregnancy. Millionaire inventor Reginald Hargreeves adopted seven of the children; when asked why, his only explanation was, "To save the world."
Yeep. I noticed the first ep free on iTunes, but with my backlog already stretching into the final stages of the sun, didn't bother downloading it; sounds like it might not have been quite my cup of tea after all.Has anyone watched this show? Can you explain it to me? Maybe I need more coffee and to try watching it again but the whole thing seems to be a confused and pointless mess.
Netflix pushed the trailer at me a few days ago, and it honestly left me somewhat conflicted.Anyone with Netflix looking for a good but quiet, grand as in ideas not wall-to-wall CGI sci-fi film, check out IO with Margaret Qualley and Anthony Mackie. I liked it a lot.
If it helps, they rocket off to live *near* Io, not on it. These will only lead to further questions I'm sure, but hey... (I suspect as myth is part of the storytelling elements of the film, Io's mythological features probably have more meaning here than its astronomical ones.)From that trailer, it appears to be mostly a "journey to the last safe haven" story, across a broken and hostile post-apoc Earth, and that is something I can seriously get behind. On the other hand, the fact that this "last safe haven" is Io is something I find deeply stupid. Okay, a rocketship to anywhere is pretty low on the realism scale anyway. It's just that there are several other destinations that require less suspension of disbelief than the most volcanically active piece of rock that we know about.
I really enjoyed it.. especially the VERY END. Myficals don't dismiss this.. its not quite what you think.Anyone with Netflix looking for a good but quiet, grand as in ideas not wall-to-wall CGI sci-fi film, check out IO with Margaret Qualley and Anthony Mackie. I liked it a lot.
Note that some people online hate it with a passion. I don't see why unless they were expecting a better take on The Titan, Netflix's shitty 'Man Plus' rip-off.
Russian Doll is . Natasha Lyone's Nadia is a wonderfully manic trainwreck of a central character, the supporting cast is brilliant and the show really does some new and interesting things with the time loop plot.Quite enjoying Russian Doll on Netflix though.. weird, whacky and a little bit disturbing.
