Dark, dystopian, heavily racist, a surprisingly good program.

A bold new show, imho.

Naa, . Different channel different charactors same storyline of oppressors and oppressed with same whitewash of exploring racism and all the other social debates. Tedious for me. Thanks though.

And why do I have every confidence it will portray immigrants as people who if sent back to their native country would be arrested before they got both feet on the ground, body slammed, cuffed, beaten with a stick, slammed in the face with a rifle butt, put up against a wall and damn near shot on the spot.

When we've taken pity of them they will try to force us to convert to Islam and demand we kick white Australians out of their homes so they can be given the settlers who come to take us over. dunno why I get that idea. HHuMMMM

I honestly didn't read that much into it.

More of a supernatural twist with a species of humanoids different from homo sapiens.

I enjoyed the first episode.
