Television: Fired on Mars

A new series is coming to HBO Max on April 20th.

The series, Fired on Mars, is described as an “Existential workplace comedy set on the Martian campus of a modern tech company.” It stars Pete Davidson. It’s animated. And HBO Max seems to be doing the bare minimum to advertise it. Or, more to the point, it is doing nothing to advertise it.

Does that peek your interest of scare you away?

I am more in the latter category, but I will watch the first episode to see that I think.

Update: I watched the first few episodes and decided that was enough. It really has very little to do with Mars. The planet is just a backdrop to an office drama that is not very interesting. If you want a good science fiction office drama you would do better watching Severance on Apple TV+.
