THE FIRST
September 14, 2018  | By David Bianculli

Hulu, 3:00 a.m. ET

 
SPECIAL PREMIERE: This new Hulu drama series, starring Sean Penn as an astronaut in the early 2030s, when private investors are pushing for a manned mission to Mars, is another series that’s best left with very little description. Its secrets, and its characters, are revealed slowly, and sometimes in visual hints and mysterious flashbacks, like Sharp Objects or Better Call Saul. And yes, those are very high bars, which this series approaches enough times to make sampling. For my full review on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross, visit the Fresh Air website. And for a full review her on TVWW, see Ed Bark's Uncle Barky's Bytes.
