If you know the name Joss Whedon (Firefly, Avengers, Justice League, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD), then you will NOT be disappointed with HBO’s new offering “The Nevers”. Set in Victorian England, it immediately struck me in a very similar fashion to Amazon Prime’s “Carnival Row”. Still waiting on season 2 of that one that I imagine is delayed due to Covid-19 as are so many other productions. I included that trailer below The Nevers.
It seems a strange craft flying over the city has struck down certain inhabitants of London, both men and women, leaving them with powers they didn’t possess before. Full of Steam Punk gadgets and imagery the story and effects are top notch. In these times, any oddity was considered to be “witchcraft”. I was hooked on the trailer and have now added this original series to my weekly schedule. Check out the trailer and see if you don’t agree.
