No thread already for this amazing Netflix show???

Ten years ago "The Great Crumble" wreaked havoc on the world and led to the mysterious emergence of hybrid babies born part human, part animal. Unsure if hybrids are the cause or result of the virus, many humans fear and hunt them. After a decade of living safely in his secluded forest home, a sheltered hybrid deer-boy named Gus (Christian Convery) unexpectedly befriends a wandering loner named Jepperd (Nonso Anozie). Together they set out on an extraordinary adventure across what is left of America in search of answers—about Gus' origins, Jepperd's past, and the true meaning of home. But their story is full of unexpected allies and enemies, and Gus quickly learns the lush, dangerous world outside the forest is more complex than he ever could have imagined.

I've loved it so far (two episodes to go). It's basically an adventure/drama in a post apocalyptic setting, but it's heartfelt and brilliantly made. I think the kid actor does a good job of being endearing and not annoying, and there's a nice dynamic between him and "Big man" which grows over time. I won't say anything more out of fear for spoiling, but it's well worth a watch! I think the first episode sets the tone well, but give it at least two before you make up your mind!

I tested positive for covid at the weekend so basically I’ve binged through the whole series in a couple of days. It’s decent and the ending sets it up for season two quite nicely. I know it’s a minor thing but the narrator completely does my head in, despite the fact he only has about four lines per episode. He just says something stupid whilst trying to make it sound clever or thought provoking. I also agree with you on the kids performance, on the first couple of episodes he threatens to be annoying but I did grow fond of him in the end. His relationship with Big Man is the best part of the show I think.
