For an acquired audience
3 April 2019 | by Floated2See all my reviews

Having no intentions and expectations about this show, decided to give it a try. Started watching the first episode on April 1 and ending today April 3. After the first few minutes of the opening episode, we can already see what type of show this was based upon.

Filled with much profanity, nudity, drugs and heavy non stop language, Now Apocalypse really doesn't not hold back on anything. The first episode was quite honestly weak as its introduction, and was considering giving up on the show, but continued watching hoping it would get better. And it did.

The first 2 episodes are quite slow but the show does progresses, it does become more interesting as we start to get more comfortable with its character. Some few boring episodes but in general, around episode 5, it becomes better. Also an intriguing season finale. Avan Jogia is a good actor given his role and lead, as he does play the part believable. The other supporting actors do their part as well, complementing.

The show is quite weird and can easily be a turn off for many people, as it is not completely mainstream wise. But after watching its episodes, it does become more compelling and engaging.

The entire alien aspect of the lead character ads an unusual and different touch which keeps it more interesting. Another positive is the show is only 10 episodes and 30 minuets each episode, so it can easily be watched very quickly.
