Originals On Peacock

If you’re looking for Originals on Peacock this July 2020 you’ll be disappointed. That’s unless you’re on the free, littered with ads version of the streaming service.

The three stand-out Originals include Brave New World, Intelligence, and The Capture. Ironically, two out of the three have already aired in full on UK television.

Brave New World

In terms of being a true big-budget Original on Peacock this July 2020, this is it.

Its cast includes young Han Solo, Alden Ehrenreich, and Jessica Brown Findlay who Downton Abbey fans may remember.

Its source material is described as: “Aldous Huxley’s profoundly important classic of world literature, Brave New World is a searching vision of an unequal, technologically-advanced future where humans are genetically bred, socially indoctrinated, and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively uphold an authoritarian ruling order–all at the cost of our freedom, full humanity, and perhaps also our souls.”

CHILL RATING: Brave New World has the potential to be great. Yet, expect Equilibrium meets 1984, but slower paced.

Intelligence

This David Schwimmer led awkward comedy has already aired in full on UK cable TV. So it’s only Original on Peacock in the U.S. this July 2020. Having already seen the show, we’ll give it a begrudging CHILL RATING.

The show is set within an intelligence agency in the UK. It pokes fun at the big loud American, David Schwimmer, and it has all the usual goofball moments as it plods along with a fairly standard agency mole plot. It’s adequate background noise that gets a CHILL, not a KILL from us because Ross Can… Friends fans will know the reference.

The Capture

From the Peacock trailer, this was the show that stood out. A conspiracy thriller, complete with the burly oaf that is Ron Pearlman (said lovingly).

The ironic twist is that The Capture aired on the BBC back in 2019. The bigger twist is that I had already seen it, despite forgetting I had.

BINGE RATING: Forget the fact I couldn’t remember the show. If you liked The Bodyguard, BBC’s Sherlock, or Luther, then the same standard is here. Mix that quality with a bizarre conspiracy plot, complete with some fantastic cat and mouse chases, then you’ve got yourself a show worth picking Peacock up for this July 2020.
