If you are a fan of series like LOST, the 100, the wilds, manifest and others similar, you would definitely find this entertaining.
The series received mixed reviews from critics, but still was renewed for season 2 in November 2021, and it premiered on September 27, 2022.
The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 29% approval rating with an average rating of 4.5/10, based on 21 critic reviews.
The website’s critics consensus reads, “There may be method to its madness, but La Brea simply doesn’t commit to its insane premise hard enough to shake out a show worth watching—at least not yet.”
Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 49 out of 100 based on 7 critics, indicating “mixed or average reviews”.
When a massive sinkhole opens in the middle of Los Angeles at the site of the La Brea Tar Pits and Wilshire Boulevard, hundreds of people, vehicles and buildings (including the distinctive Petersen Automotive Museum) are pulled into its depths.
The survivors find themselves trapped in a mysterious and dangerous primeval land where they must band together to survive.
The show follows one family (father, mother, son, and daughter) who are separated by the events and attempting to reunite.
The father has visions providing glimpses of when and where his wife and son are.
The sinkhole and the sudden appearance of Teratornis has attracted the attention of the United States Department of Homeland Security who are studying a similar event in the Mojave Desert.
As the series progresses, the investigators realize that the sinkholes provide a temporary portal to the same location in 10,000 B.C. Meanwhile, the survivors struggle to find a way back through the portal before it closes up.
Season one comprises of ten episodes, and so far has aired six episodes making a total of sixteen episodes cumulatively.
