Y: The Last Man debuts first three episodes on Hulu

[Spoiler (click to open)]

- Based on the 2002 comic series, all animals with a Y chromosome die en masse, very suddenly. The surviving women/ trans men/non-binary people have to contend with a world where half the population is suddenly gone. Yorick, a young man in his 20s, and his pet monkey, Ampersand, appear to be the only animals with a Y chromosome to survive.

- The FX series has updated the comic’s sex and gender politics for 2021, so it includes trans men from the jump and in later episodes will delve into biological sex and the Y chromosome.

- Includes several prominent new characters, like Nora Brady, an advisor to the former president, and Amber Tamblyn’s Kimberly Campbell Cunningham (who is modeled off of Meghan McCain and Ivanka Trump).

- Appropriately, the titular “last man” is incredibly self-involved and annoying.

- Agent 355 is a standout in the comics and looks to be the highlight of this series as well.
