Not since Apollonius of Rhodes have we borne witness to so stirring an epic. We see the kinship of Iron Age sailors and a sailor of the airless, starry void. We see humanity struggle with their shared burden against insurmountable odds, a struggle against the closing darkness. We see the blossoming of impossible love.
Spaceships, Vikings, Dragons, Fair Maidens, Ron Perlman. Yes, all of that, to be sure. All of the archetypes are here. Every story is told through this story. Here is the Odyssey. Here is Beowulf.
Here is King Lear. Here is The Godfather. Here is Predator (the first one).
All of life is here. And all that makes life worth living. And as we learn about CGI carnage, we learn about ourselves.
Here is Outlander. It is not to be missed.
