The pitch meeting for this must’ve been a hoot. “We’ll do ‘The Country of the Blind’… but, you know, in the future!” Just as in that H.G. Wells story, we learn here that being one of the only sighted people among the blind doesn’t necessarily grant you any special privileges.

A few centuries from now, humans have lost their senses of sight, and the few born sighted are hunted and despised—as high concepts go, it’s a little goofy (and the reviews have been a little rough), but the beautifully produced and entertaining show blends Game of Thrones vibes with dystopian sci-fi, and boasts Jason Momoa and the always brilliant Alfre Woodard.
