Civilized is an improvised dark comedy sci-fi show. Humanity’s final hope lies in terraforming a new world. If only the crew were up to the task.
Short and snappy and darkly humorous. There are no bones made about the horrors of deep space and flaws of humanity, but it's all done through captivating and extreme absurdism.
Take my word for it when I say that episode one was great!
