What is Mulligan (TV) About?
Mulligan is an animated sitcom with a satirical edge set in a post-apocalyptic world. The series begins with Earth in ruins following a catastrophic alien attack. With the majority of the human population wiped out, it falls upon a motley crew of survivors to reconstruct a semblance of civilization. The cast of characters includes Matty Mulligan, a working-class hero who rises to leadership; Lucy Suwan, the love interest and partner in governance; Dr. Farrah Braun, a brilliant scientist and single mother; Simon Prioleau, a historian helping to guide the new society; Senator Cartwright LaMarr, who self-designates as the Vice-President, longing for the past; and Axatrax, a high-ranking alien general held captive. These characters navigate the challenges of establishing a new order, grappling with power dynamics, personal relationships, and the daunting task of not repeating history's mistakes. Created by Sam Means and Robert Carlock for Netflix, Mulligan offers a humorous and introspective look at what it means to get a second chance at creating a world, highlighting both the follies and potentials of humanity.
