now apocalypse review
I decided to watch the show because of Avan Jogia, Beau Mirchoff and Tyler Posey.
The script is crap and the acting is worst. The star rating reflects overall quality. Parents and caregivers: Set limits for violence and more with Plus.

Parents need to know that Now Apocalypse is a mature comedy series that contains lots of strong sexual content (nudity, porn, simulated sex acts), as well as cursing and pot smoking.
The characters, most of whom are too immature or clueless to recognize that their Hollywood dreams will never be fulfilled, spend their time writing, eating, and hooking up with the help of social media apps.
Half an hour of people jerking off, jerking other people off, or getting jerked off to and going absolutely nowhere. She and Ulysses are often paired to argue the sexual politics that the series finds far more interesting than potential lizard aliens.
Ulysses is haunted by visions of lizard aliens coming to conquer Earth’s population in a very intimate way, but it’s unclear whether anything is actually happening.
It feels like these absolute amazing actors couldn't find a job anymore and they accepted their last chance. Really tried to make it through first ep.

The first episode of this brand new series was both entertaining mysterious very erotic funny and interesting to watch. But I find the characters all goofily likable, although clearly cast based on looks.
This is either a really well written soft core porno or a very terribly written drama. Want more Rolling Stone? Then again, I don't live in a state that legally sells something to aid in laughter.

| It's kind of a better version of the disappointing and cumbersome "Here and Now" in that it involves some "is he or is he not psychic?"

Created by filmmaker Gregg Araki, NOW APOCALYPSE is a comedy series about a group of four 20-something friends trying to find fame, fortune, and love in Los Angeles during pre-apocalyptic times.Ulysses Zane is a frustrated actor who is trying to find love while trying to figure out his life.He's also having weird nightmares that have him a little bit worried. I just binged Season 1 and loved it! It's like combining the look, feel, storyline and acting ability of something on Nickelodeon...with a lot of nudity and sex and there ya have it. Yes, the main cast consists of "pretty people", especially Avan Jogia, but they have the same problems that we all have or have had in our lives.

At one point, with Mysterious Skin, Greg had achieved a high level of accomplishment, bringing his unique perspective to a very complex subject. Absurd but amiable nostalgia trip only lukewarm. It's kind of too early to tell but cant help but be curious if this is supposed to the the spiritual successor to 97's Nowhere? But when he meets Gabriel (Tyler Posey), he gets the sense that the universe is taking a strange turn. Ulysses Zane (Avan Jogia) is a frustrated actor who is trying to find love while trying to figure out his life.
This show is like a beginner's guide to having (and what to aviod in) a sex life and/or relationship. The Doom Generation's Gregg Araki brings his signature blend of sex and weirdness to TV with the surprisingly aimless Now Apocalypse.
If someone has never seen anything he has done before this may be marginally more of an interesting series but really it just seems like the work of someone who instead of maturing and getting deeper and better at their craft is just reaching back to stuff from the beginning of their career desperately trying to hold on to the breath of youth and vigor. But this is some kind of a throwaway script, and is almost like a bad parody of the previous work. “On one hand, I can’t shake this gnawing dread, this feeling that there’s something going on just below the surface of everyday life,” Ulysses says in his vlog. I hope he eventually makes them and stops creating these films and t.v.
What Discount Outlet did they pick that costume up at? Even what plot there is to speak of has penetration on the brain.
It’s a strange, messy trifle of a show.
Has Stars gone the way of the 'syfy' channel.. Looks like it. Then i realized i was actually wasting my life away.
Pot-smoking comedy has laughs, irreverent humor, cursing.
Gregg Araki has a unique style, love the weirdness, boldness and the colors. This adult-oriented comedy series mixes romance, humor, and science fiction to create a show that balances the silly and the surreal. When do you think it's OK (if ever) to show innuendo, promiscuity, nudity, or explicit scenes on a show? The only think watchable was Tyler Posey. Wow. If I were any of these actors or their agents I would be furious.

| Don't waste your time. Starz’s new comedy makes the network’s in-house porny aesthetic a main ingredient instead of a side dish, Beau Mirchoff in Starz's 'Now Apocalypse.'. We got through one episode and had to shower the filth off us. It tries hard to shock in a deadpan way, but it's not shocking... in fact, it's no different than any of the films he's been making for years. Similar vibe but with today's 20 somethings opposed to 20 somethings in the late 90s. It's hard to define what Now Apocalypse is really about, which makes watching it feel like you've tuned in to some sort of televised theater of the absurd. I have always thought the early films that Greg Araki directed were superior work, especially The Living End and The Doom Generation. I have to admit I am probably not the audience this is aimed at, I am older and have a brain, but I just don't get what this is about. And how everyone looks (almost) naked. Very 1980s. At almost 60 years of age, I'm willing to bet he has made some serious observations about life as an adult that would make great films.
Where Araki and Sciortino do succeed, in addition to making sly, poignant commentary about power and relationships, is in subverting expectations, first in giving viewers a queer story that’s a bit fraught, but mostly fun. Why Are Men So Compelled to Defend Jacking Off on a Work Zoom? No character development. Online porn that's shown includes BDSM scenes and sexual fetishes. Can it accomplish the same things without this content?
"Now Apocalypse" is fun and sexy and young - and a good,30-minute diversion. I'm sorry to say that this was an absolute disappointment.
If you like it, good for you, give a review. Nothing compelling the viewer to keep watching. We display the minimum age for which content is developmentally appropriate. I look forward to watching it in the weeks to come and can't wait to see where the show is going on in what direction. I've only seen the first 2 episodes and it is at best very mildly interesting, but I have no idea in what direction it is going. When is Araki going to do something different?
A total disaster!!!
0 Lovelyboy. Thank you Starz for making the entire season available, I really enjoyed my Sunday afternoon binge and I anxiously await a second season! This show isn't intended to win awards, awe audiences and win over masses... but that doesn't make it bad.
Its not even tastefully done.
Now Apocalypse creators Gregg Araki (Mysterious Skin) and Karley Sciortino (Slutever) use it almost like a parody of oversexed Prestige TV, particularly in the universe’s simultaneous fascination and exasperation with Ford. Get full reviews, ratings, and advice delivered weekly to your inbox.
Filled with sex scenes, not one of which is sexy or sensual in any way, it tries to be funny and isn't.
"Now Apocalypse" is fun and sexy and young - and a good,30-minute diversion. I thought he was turning into a serious director when he made "Mysterious Skin," but then he went back into his fixation with pretty teenage boys.
Quirky comedy has terrific premise, tons of mature content. Some of them seem like they are learning to act as they go. Be the first to review this title. Our ratings are based on child development best practices.
I'm really shocked. If you're watching 'Now Apocalypse' with the hope of finding a truly well-written and intelligent series, then don't.
Wish I had this show when I was 20-something, Excellent show worth watching very entertaining.
Not even the sex can keep this series from being boring. We want to hear from you! Some bicycle crashes, pushing, shoving, and an act of extraterrestrial sexual assault. Created by filmmaker Gregg Araki, NOW APOCALYPSE is a comedy series about a group of four 20-something friends trying to find fame, fortune, and love in Los Angeles during pre-apocalyptic times. poppycock.
poppycock. ‘Now Apocalypse’ Review: A Near-Parody of Oversexed Prestige TV Starz’s new comedy makes the network’s in-house porny aesthetic a main ingredient instead of a side dish
Vaping, drinking, and pot smoking visible. He's also having weird nightmares that have him a little bit worried. Now Apocalypse features lots of cursing, smoking, and other adult behaviors. Anyway it's somewhat interesting. It just made sex so much less confusing.” Ulysses’ reply sums up the series’ ethos: “When was that?”. If you're disgusted by it then that shows more about who you are than about the show.
Lots of nudity (bottoms and breasts) and simulated sex acts. Join now.
Searching for streaming and purchasing options ... Common Sense is a nonprofit organization.
Either way, Beau Mirchoff can't seem to find his shirt and I'm giving this show a 4 until he does.
If you tried to watch it and stopped because it was graphic, the screen-full of parental warnings at the beginning should have been the first clue, it is akin to soft-core porn.
Doubt ill be watching anything from their channel again.
