A new month has begun and we have our first Channel Surfing TV picks for the month of November. The deceased help solve a mystery in Dr. Brain. Arm your Holons for more war in the second season of gen:Lock. Then, explore the traditions of various immigrant cultures this holiday season in a special four part Taste the Nation.
We’re always on the look out for interesting comic adaptations for television and one of our TV picks comes from an unlikely source. The upcoming Dr. Brain comes from Korea and is based upon a popular webtoon from creator, Hongjacga.
The story follows a brilliant neuroscientist named Sewon who recently lost his entire family in a mysterious accident. Looking to gain a better understanding of what occurred, he uses his scientific skills to synch his brain with dead people. Through the process, he hopes to uncover clues within their memories. However, the more he visits their minds, the more he loses a grasp on reality and is unable to distinguish the memories from his own experiences.
Dr. Brain will premiere Thursday, November 4, on Apple TV+.
The War Continues
The anime, gen:Lock, originally began streaming on Rooster Teeth FIRST in 2019. It was well received and after additional airings on Adult Swim, it was renewed for a second season. But this time, the new episodes would be released on HBO Max initially before finally being made available on Rooster Teeth FIRST 90 days afterwards.
Season two is almost here and the series will be continuing the conflict between The Polity and the Union. Though the highly skilled gen:Lock team finally came together to fight off the autocratic forces of the Union, it seems this ground breaking force is already being replaced. The group’s leader, Julian Chase, reaches a point where he must make the choice to sacrifice it all in order to save the world.
Stream gen:Lock beginning Thursday, November 4, on HBO Max.
