Utopia (USA) – TPToA Podcast 187
Not as interesting as it's originator
A faster paced and less involved US remake of a 2013 produced TV show, that has failed to update for a 2020 audience.

Positives
It's scarily prescient in it's reflection of the world around us
John Cusack is an appropriately creepy presence in the story
Negatives
It's predictable and formulaic as hell; what should be breadcrumbs of plot are entire loaves of exposition
Its hard to really care much about any of the characters

AWESOME

Way back in 2014 we reviewed the UK version of Utopia (in Episode 00F) and had a lot of good things to say about it. Now, 6 years later, we’re looking at the US remake on Amazon and learning that a show about killer pandemics is much less fun when you’re living in one.

Quinny, Dion Jill and Peta are all diving head-first down the rabbit hole this week to find out what each of them has done, to earn their place in this crowded podcast.

The live recording of the Twitch Stream is available on our Youtube channel here!

As always, thanks to our audience community who joined the conversation live on the Twitch stream and especially any who supported us by chucking a tip in our jar via Ko-Fi. Our recording sessions are streamed live and loud on Twitch each Tuesday night at 7:30pm AEDT!

WE WANT YOUR FEEDBACK! Send in voicemails or emails to info@theperiodictableofawesome.com

Here’s a big shout out to @Tiki_doll on twitter for another fun T-Shirt design based on comments in the show.
