(TV SERIES) Tribes of Europa Season 1 - Not Your Average Sci-Fi Post Apocalyptic Series

This weekend there were a bunch of new movies and series on various streaming platforms and cable TV, but after browsing through them, I opted to watch this one which was released more than a week ago. The premise was interesting for me and I was intrigued by the trailer as well. OK without further ado, I'll get right on it.

Brief Story Line

After a catastrophic event in 2029, European countries fell apart and the people created their own tribes to survive. One of those were the Origines who were living by themselves, separated from the rest of the world. However their peaceful lives were disturbed when Liv (Henriette Confurius - Beloved Sisters etc) with her brothers Kiano (Emilio Sakraya) and the youngest Ejia (David Ali Rashed) came across a mysterious cube said to have the best technology and also the subject of various tribes pursue.

Flora & Ulysses - Fun Family Movie of Super Powered Squirrel with Delightful Performance of the Young Lead Cast

Weekend has always been a favorite time of the week for me, especially now when there are so many new movies/series released in various streaming platforms. Yesterday I checked on Disney+ and saw this family movie which I thought would brighten up my day. The premise looked to be a lot of fun, so I decided to give this a try. OK, I'll just go straight to it now.

Brief Story Line

A 10 year old girl named Flora (Matilda Lawler) loved to read superhero comic books especially the ones created by her father George (Ben Schwartz - voice of Sonic the Hedgehog, Space Force TV series etc) who sadly was unsuccessful in publishing them. Meanwhile Flora's mother Phyllis (Alyson Hannigan - How I Met Your Mother, Buffy The Vampire Slayer TV series etc) was a successful romance novelist who was in a bit of a slump recently and struggling to write a new good novel.
