When the trailer for the Bryan Singer-produced web series “H+” hit the web back in July, we were certainly impressed by the feature-like production value and novel concept of the series which certainly piqued our more sci-fi prone tendencies. “H+” is set in a future world where technology has moved beyond smart phones in the palm of our hands to pushing itself further into our lives due to a new device from a high-tech company named Hplus Nano Teoranta. Basically, It’s a widget that’s capable of connecting both the human brain and the Internet in the most nightmarish of ways. When a virus is unleashed on this system, killing a third of the world’s population, only bands of survivors are left in the chaotic aftermath.
The first six episodes certainly establishes the epic-scale, post-apocalyptic vibe of it all, even if the first two plunge the viewer into the thick of it all a little too quickly. It’s a healthy dose of Philip K. Dick-style sci-fi courtesy of writers John Cabrera and Cosimo De Tommaso, along with a familiar face for viewers of “Angel” and “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” in actor Alexis Denisof, but there’s a good chance that you’ll fall for some of the other talent on display in this ravaged landscape.
If you’re looking for your first taste of “H+,” you can check out the first six episodes below. [via Bleeding Cool]
