Wikipedia about Vagrant Queen (Tv Series)
Vagrant Queen is an American science fiction television series that premiered on Syfy on March 27, 2020. The series is based on the Vault comic book series written by Magdalene Visaggio and illustrated by Jason Smith. Elida built a life as a scavenger and outlaw, but when an old frenemy, Isaac, turns up with news about her long-lost mother, she is forced to return to her broken kingdom with Isaac and Amae in hopes of staging a rescue before a deadly childhood foe, Commander Lazaro, finds them.
Vagrant Queen Review:
Sci-fi on TV tends to fall into two categories: Shows that are meticulous about the world they build and have characters that take themselves very seriously, or ones that acknowledge that aliens are “just like us!” and go for some camp along with the space flight and shoot-em-ups. Vagrant Queen is in that second category. But can it maintain its campiness and still bring some good sci fi action? Opening Shot: “PLANET GALLIANOX. Another Galaxy. Not Yours.” A woman searches some rubble and finds what she’s looking for. “Jackpot,” she says. The Gist: Two other scavengers with guns happen on her and threaten her. One thinks he recognizes her from a karaoke night he goes to regularly. But the scavenger, Elida (Adriyan Rae), gets the jump on both and she’s the only one who makes it out of there alive, annoyed that one of them got blood on her new jacket. It’s a show that sometimes goes for gags a little too hard, like the fact that the name Elida decided to pick for herself in order to hide isn’t all that different than her actual name. And the tonal shifts from goofy to serious can be a bit jarring. But the show tries to be in the spirit of swashbuckling sci fi adventures that came before it. That makes us hopeful that, now that the story and the show’s core group — Elida, Isaac, Amae — has been established, we’ll settle into a bit of an adventure-of-the-week format as Elida makes her way back to her home kingdom to find out about her mother. It helps that Rae is a strong lead, and has immediate chemistry with Ronzon and McGregor; it’ll be fun to see the relationships among the three of them change as the series goes along. We just hope the tonal unevenness gets smoothed out as the show continues. Sex and Skin: When Elida goes into Amae’s shop for the first time, she sees Amae getting busy with another woman. Parting Shot: Amae pilots the ship toward a crash-landing on another planet, because the thrusters are breaking down and the power distributor isn’t doing its job. Sleeper Star: Thembalethu Ntuli plays a dog-like creature named Nim who helps Elida out. We’re not sure we’ll see him in subsequent episodes, but he definitely displayed more character development in his few scenes than most of the cast did in the entire pilot. Most Pilot-y Line: “I saw you talking to the mechanic. I hope it was to discuss installing a new coffee cup holder,” Isaac says to Elida about “Peggy,” his ship. That’s an example of going a little too hard for a gag. Also, who says “coffee cup holder” instead of just “cup holder”? Our Call: STREAM IT. If you want some light entertainment to keep your mind of being stuck in your house, Vagrant Queen will fill the bill for you.
