FX on Hulu has adapted the Sci-Fi best-seller novel by Octavia E. Butler, Kindred. While I have not read the book, I just binged watched the Hulu FX series and it was fantastic. Immediately following the season finale I went to Google to see if season 2 was already approved and was glad to see there are plans for a season 2.
Season 1 of Kindred includes 8 episodes. The main character is Dana who moves to Los Angeles from New York. In her new house she experiences time travel that lands her on a plantation in the year 1815.
While it may initially appear like we’ve seen this story before, the nuances of Dana going back in forth in time and navigating both adds to the experience of the series. Dana even drags along an extremely new friend Kevin back in time with her while suspicion grows among the nosey neighbors left behind in 2016.
If you’re looking for something to binge this weekend, Kindred should be on that list.
