Raised By Wolves – the show’s discussion and themes
Raised By Wolves is set in a war-torn world. Introducing to us the planet – Kepler 22B, the show’s main protagonists, and focus are two parents who are androids but are growing humane day by day. These parents are tasked with looking after and taking care of two children who have been transported from the Earth via pods (of course. Mother Earth has been destroyed and the new civilization of some humans and some androids have arrived.)
The parents’ are in conflict of parenting and how to raise the children. Of course, as mentioned before the show and its premise is based largely on the concept of faith and unfaith. The world is divided between the atheists and a community of believers who worship and follow a higher power called Sol and the people/followers is called Mithraics.
The Androids are at someplace in charge and someplace a pawn in a big game of chess. Humans largely use these androids as killer robots. The parents are raising the children where the beliefs and what to follow and not are the questions in the foreground. And a slight trivia- The Mother is an atheist but the father is not.
The show does an applaudable job of being something with the intent right in the face. With the question right on the whiteboard. The notion of communities, the omnipresent conflicts due to differences of the opinions and beliefs, and how the world as a whole, especially the ones not related are the collateral damage in all of it.
The Earth eventually gets caught up in the war of atheists and believers and is decimated at the end of it. Only for the conflict to be still there. The show is raw and explicit about it. Only with a hint of subtlety. But that makes it even more impressive. The discussion on parenting is also quite noteworthy. Also not something you would expect from a science fiction based show.
With a lot of characters onboard and a plethora of storylines in development, the show kind of loses sense of surprise or excitement. You can already see the grand elements of the story played out from the distance itself. But the positive thing will always be the message i.e. how fanaticism is dangerous, irrespective of the sides you pick upon.
