Description

Lem, a human, and Mikey, an A.I., are piloting the first ever faster than light speed ship when they find themselves twice as far as they meant to go, and without any fuel for a return flight. The two of them communicate with Earth using tiny faster-than-light-speed drives, which carry information for Mikey and questions for Lem from his kids. As they work together to solve the problem, they forge a friendship that could change the course of human history, all while trying to answer the question “how did this happen?” And more importantly… “Why?”

Ask Your Father asks the question: What does it mean to be a family? What does it mean to be a person in that family, even if you aren’t a human? The show allows us to explore concepts of human rights, the ownership of our labor, the limits we put on morality and the fight for personhood - all in the form of a sci-fi thriller. The first season is 9 episodes long and tells a complete story, but one with room to grow in unexpected directions in future seasons. Lem, a human, and Mikey, an A.I., are piloting the first ever faster than light speed ship when they find themselves twice as far as they meant to go, and without any fuel for a return flight. The two of them communicate with Earth using tiny faster-than-light-speed drives, which carry information for Mikey and questions for Lem from his kids. As they work together to solve the problem, they forge a friendship that could change the course of human history, all while trying to answer the question “how did this happen?” And more importantly… “Why?” For credits, transcripts, and more info, visit Gideon-Media.com Learn more about your ad choices.

I dig the concept and the execution. But most of all I love the non-Hollywood but better-than-human ending!
