The 3 Body Problem we were able to see the Netflix

The new sci-fi series from Alexander Woo and the creators of “Game of Thrones” is previewed at the Séries Mania festival this Friday. We saw it before its release, here’s what we thought of it.

The most anticipated series of the month of March, and probably one of the most anticipated of the year, is finally released on Netflix next week. From this Thursday, March 21, subscribers to the streaming platform will be able to discover The 3-body problem, adaptation of Liu Cixin’s best-selling hard sci-fi book by Alexander Woo (True Blood), but also and above all by the showrunners of the series Game Of Thrones, David Benioff and Daniel “DB” Weiss. The event is such that the series is entitled to a preview screening at the Séries Mania festival this Friday, March 15. was also able to discover it in advance.

In The 3-body problem, Netflix subscribers will discover that a disastrous decision taken by a young female scientist, in China marked by the cultural revolution of the 1960s, will completely shake up the world decades later. The laws of nature begin to collapse, a threat then seems to come from the universe, which pushes a group of scientists to combine their forces and their knowledge to save humanity.

Is the comparison with Game of Thrones justified?

When we discover the names in the credits, it is very tempting to compare The 3-body problem has Game Of Thrones. And some spectators might hope to discover a work of the same caliber, as epic, complex and spectacular. In a sense, they would not be wrong, since we find the touch of David Benioff and DB Weiss in The 3-body problem : the adaptation of a highly complex novel to stage (Liu Cixin is probably to Chinese SF what Georges RR Martin would be to American fantasy), enormous ambition and grandiloquence, an imposing and spectacular production and surprising twists and turns. We even find some actors from GOT in the series, like John-Bradley West (Sam in the fantasy series), Liam Cunningham (Sir Davos) or Jonathan Pryce (The High Sparrow).

But conversely, The 3-body problem is a pure product of science fiction: cerebral first, emotional then. GOT was fascinating thanks to its gallery of characters, to the political chessboard that was played out before our eyes season after season. The 3 problem body is so by the depth of its messages. The mystery will keep viewers in suspense for a few episodes, before propose a reflection on our relationship to the world, to faith, to fashionrt, to love or to our sound of being, to science and above all to others, to offer a mirror of what makes humanity. The question, undoubtedly, therefore lies elsewhere. Comparable to Game Of Thrones or not, In any case, Netflix is ​​releasing a great series this week, which has everything to become the new SF obsession of the small screen.
