Although never addressed in the story, jellyfish are seen as living representations of rejuvenation. The Turritopsis doohmiiare or the immortal jellyfish is able to revert to its infant stage once it reaches old age and experience adulthood all over again. It is one of the few living organism known to delay the death process and heal itself from injury or sickness through anti aging. Scientists in real life have been studying such anti aging and rejuvenation techniques in jellyfish to see if it can be applied to human society. See more »
Someone still knows how to make quality sci fi....
After the sea of atrocious rubbish that passes as sci fi lately, from the demise of Dr Who, not to mention dismal attempts to remake The War of the Worlds, its refreshing to see a series "this good".
Ad Vitam blends a quality crime thriller with a sci fi that has elements reminiscent of films such as Blade Runner, but still manages to have its own unique personality.
This is a deep series, that delves into human emotion and the things that define us as human. Just as importantly, it looks at what we can become when those things are taken from us.
Top notch acting rounds out this marvellous French series I had to watch in one sitting. Something of a rarity for me these days.
10/10 from me.
