The Apocalypse has come and gone; its survivors forming small communities for protection. Banished to the vast Wasteland, Isaac - a giant humanoid panda - sets out to find a young girl and reinstate his family into the Tribe of Legion. The idea is preposterous on the surface – a web series fusing elements of Mad Max, Lone Wolf And Cub and Zatoichi revolving around a walking, talking, sword fighting panda bear. It’s the sort of thing that simply should not work, not at all, or at least not without descending into wild camp. And yet it does work. And it works in no small part because talented writer-director Victoria Cocks plays things absolutely, one hundred percent straight. There is nothing camp here, not at all. And, yes, Cocks will make you buy in to the emotional plight of her furry protagonist.
