Space drama. Extraterrestrial contact leads to complicated space mission where things go awry.

Critics have panned it, proving once again that the only people attracted to television criticism as a career are generally morons.

IMO its a good show. Good effects, good acting, plot a bit formulaic so far but Ive seen two episodes. It's solid "Grade B" s.f. and has the potential to become even better. Katee Sackhoff ("Starbuck" from the new Battlestar Galactica series) has the lead.

Is this the new one in which the second scene features a bunch of whiny 20-something millennial stereotypes getting to know their new commander on the spaceship? By being narcissistic snobs & whiners? With the chick from the Battlestar Galactica reboot series?

If that's the one, I couldn't continue watching. All the other characters came off as unlikable at best. First ~15 minutes, I was already hoping they'd travel straight into the plasma embrace of a star.

Yes that one. Happily the whiney millenials are being picked off one by one owing to their own personal suckitational fields. Captain Battlestar killed one of 'em herself and in the most recent episode told Spaceman Biff to go fuck himself. So its ok.

Ahh. So they were supposed to be annoying so we'd be happy to see them killed?

Not the most sophisticated writing, but perhaps the series gets better after all. :lol:

Theres a certain moderate degree of 'Ima head into the basement to check out the growling noises even though the lights and my flashlight do not work' element that is fun. Also, Spaceman Biff bought the farm. So its interesting enough that I watch it during my workouts.
