TV Review: Black Knight (2023) (Sci-Fi/Action)

Black Knight (택배기사)
6 episodes

In a dystopian future devastated by air pollution, the survival of humanity depends on the Black Knights — and they’re far from your average deliverymen. (Synopsis)

Black Knight was a slick sci-fi-action story that crammed a lot into its small 6-episode playtime. The world building was nicely handled and the characters were well presented within the first episode, so you will immediately willing to get behind them. The choice of English title was perhaps a mistake. The Korean title just says "courier"/"delivery driver", there is already a famous K-drama called Black Knight, not to mention the Marvel character/series. I would have left it as "The Courier" personally, but maybe that's just me. Potential show confusion aside, this was an enjoyable mini-series that my husband and I binged over two nights and which we both enjoyed. Recommended for fans of dystopian action dramas. It gets a solid 4 stars from me.
