ReMade 1x02: Hungry

No one wants to deal with a food allergy, especially when you’ve just escaped a space station overrun by menacing robots.

ReMade 1x02: Hungry

Previously: Holden and Seyah get in a car crash and woke up … on a space station. And after running for their lives from the menacing “caretakers,” they find themselves on a very changed Earth.

This Week on ReMade

We meet May, one of the 23 who died from a food allergy and who, in her former life, was an overachiever (and kind of a jerk?). She and a group of the other kids, including Holden, decide that they need to make sure that none of the caretakers get off the space station. When they return to the elevator, they find their way to a control center; when they can’t make out the language written on the panels, they break the elevator’s cable instead.

Later, May and a different group of kids go on a search for water and food, but don’t find much other than examples of some pretty strange wildlife and dilapidated buildings unlike any she’s ever seen. As a group, they decided to set up camp and figure out what to do about their situation after they have shelter.

Moments of WHUT

- The space elevator cable snapping!
- There are now butterflies the size of dinner plates.

Best of the 23

Wesley, even if does share a name with “the annoying kid from Star Trek,” seems like the kind of nerdy guy I’d like to hang out with. We share a dislike of giant, hairy bugs and an interest in alien planets.

Honorable mention: Loki. For the name alone.

Burning Questions

- I feel like the repercussions from snapping the elevator cable should have been more impressive, don’t you?
- What kind of animals are lurking sight unseen?
- Why are the constellations not quite right?
- Where’d Umta sneak off to?
- To echo May’s final thoughts, what had happened to them, anyway?
