My Favorite Jovian

My Favorite Jovian

My Favorite Jovian is a light-hearted take on the cultural differences of Jovian bioconservativism when put directly at odds with the rest of the solar system, but primarily that of Mars. The main character, Reginald (Reggie) Castle is a retired soldier whose last tour was during the Fall, whose dream it was to one day own a farm. With Earth no longer viable, and space for “proper farming” in and around Jupiter sorely lacking, he moved himself and his family out to Mars to work on a farm near Valles-New Shanghai. While Reggie is bigoted, gruff, seemingly ignorant, his character is portrayed in a complex and endearing way. Even anti-Jovian groups have grown fond of him because he humanizes the oft-vilified “Jovian Junta”.

The show is currently in its third season, and show creators are considering a name change to “Reggie Castle’s Place” to move away from the potentially condescending title, but no official announcements have been made.
