Release Date

Plot

Set at the dawn of human civilization, the series focuses on a group of friends who are the first to discover key concepts such as fire and the wheel. The series was also as described by IMDB: "stumble onto humanity's best, and worst, innovations. Art. Alcohol. Fashion. Racism. Small talk. And, much to their confusion, monogamy." We also witness the move from focussing on survival to the discovery of "hallmarks of human society" – like eating cooked meat, living alongside wild animals, and we also get glimpses of the origin of mansplaining.
