Amazon’s latest Pilot Season has started with the release of several pilots which viewers can watch and vote on the ones they want to continue to series. This is definitely a time when we should participate, because unlike the broadcast networks and cable channels (and other streaming services), we get to contribute to the programming decisions. All you have to do is watch one or more of the pilots then cast your votes (and you can see all the pilots at this link).
This time around, Amazon has two pilots that should be of interest to science fiction and fantasy fans, the sci fi the entry Oasis and the superhero comedy The Legend of Master Legend. Here is a rundown on both of those.
Oasis: Set in the near future, Oasis tells the story of priest Peter Leigh, who is called to a remote planet where a mysterious multinational company is building the first permanent off-Earth human colony. The planet, Oasis, is humanity’s last chance to escape from Earth’s impending collapse, but it quickly becomes apparent that it may not be as hospitable to humanity as it seems. Watch the pilot here.
The Legend of Master Legend: This one is a dark comedy about the life of Master Legend – a real life superhero whose mission is the security and safety of the people of Las Vegas. Master Legend juggles the demands of justice with the even more complicated demands of his real family, who don’t see him as a hero at all. Watch the pilot here.
