If there's one thing I love, it's a fantasy series where women with supernatural abilities fight monsters and killers (think Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Chilling Adventures of Sabrina). And if there's one thing I love even more, it's a period piece. So, when I heard that the new HBO series The Nevers found a way to combine all these things, well, you can guess my excitement level.
Joss Whedon (the creator of Buffy) is the mind behind the series, which follows a group of "orphans" with extraordinary powers, who want to assimilate into society, while also avoiding the murderous woman who is targeting them. The suspense builds from the very beginning, where a woman stands under a stormy England sky, before jumping (presumably) to her death.
Flash forward three years and this woman, who can see visions of the future, has survived, but her situation is more terrifying than she could have ever imagined. Read on for more details about The Nevers, and whether you should put it at the top of your "must watch" list.
