This is the "Prometeus school of little space explorer" all over again. They have the technology, they have the know-how, but for some reason they put the worst possible people in charge of the most important mission of human history. It's like NASA put highschoolers inside Apollo 11. Why writers can't write a good sci-fi show without making people complete incompetents? I miss SG1

`Season One thoughts :` **The Good -** Decent special effects . Some CGI looks fine , other shots look like they were rendered on a Commodore Amiga . **The Bad -** Terrible acting abounds , especially Katee Sackhoff . In this , she plays a poor man's Ripley (*Aliens*) . Her character Niko certainly didn't fall far from the Starbuck tree . The difference from Starbuck here is that Niko has more than three emotions . Unfortunately , Sackhoff's acting style doesn't support such range , her facial expressions and movements all are so contrived and fast changing I can't take my eyes off of her for the wrong reasons , it's too distracting . It's similar to watching Jim Carrey's exaggerated expressions as *Ace Ventura* , though Ace was always meant to be over the top funny and not dramatic . Niko and her husband have zero chemistry , he acts like somebody who's uncomfortable around children and gives off a weird uncomfortable vibe in scenes with his daughter . None of the characters are likable except William/Samuel Anderson who , as always , is a pleasure to watch . **The Ugly -** The cinematography is dated , circa 2004 . Identical to *Battlestar Galactica* with loads of shaky-cam and awkward excessive snap zooming . The cinematographer from *Another Life* also worked on *Battlestar Galactica* so that explains that . The music is amateur hour . Every time the cheesy music starts playing , it signals the viewer that something juvenile is coming . I like just about anything Sci-Fi , I was a fan of the *Battlestar Galactica* reboot , but it's going to be a chore to watch any more of this mess . I'm hoping the aliens end humanity swiftly so that Netflix can spend the money on something more deserving . **Edit** I managed to finish the series . The Earth story line is boring and illogical . The space story line is only slightly watchable with at least some action here and there . Both are filled with stupid actions and WTF moments . The writers should all be fired . I couldn't possibly nitpick everything wrong with the writing , there's simply too much going on here to even start . This show is second rate in every possible way .

One of the worst Sci-Fi shows ever. It's Sci-Fi for people who don't like Sci-Fi. Usually, science fiction likes to engage your mind, however in this show, if you turn on your head for even a second you will be imminently put off by how nothing the characters do makes any sense... [spoiler] The antagonistic XO behaves like he has a bi-polar disorder. In one scene he's well adjusted in other he's a raving lunatic. It's really hard to believe he wasn't booted from the military before. Even harder to believe that he had command of his own ship for any period of time. He starts a mutiny at the first serious disagreement with Katee **While they still have communication with Earth**. Usually, the mutiny would take place when the crew is isolated from the outside. Here they just could have presented the point of disagreement to the higher-ups on earth, and they would have decided what action they want their subordinates to take. [/spoiler] [spoiler] The XO later tries to kill Katee in an overdramatized scene that looked like a red herring for him trying to kill her. You know those scenes when someone bad is about to happen but you know it wouldn't? Like Sansa wanting to execute Arya and switching to Littlefinger in the last possible moment? Only in this scene he actually tries to kill her. [Expectations Subverted!]. So Katee kills him in self-defense. Yet in the next episodes, Katee doesn't mention to the crew that it was self-defense. She just says she killed him. Because he didn't follow orders or some shit like that. [/spoiler] [spoiler] Then some of the crew go to an alien planet. To mine **oxygen rocks** in a tiny cave. And for some reason, they think it's a good idea to take their masks off, on an alien planet. In a predictable fashion, the crew gets infected with an alien organism. For which, they magically find a cure in the last possible minute before they all decide to kill themselves. [/spoiler] I only watched the first 3 episodes. Couldn't take it anymore. Also, It seems the level of technology in this world is an incomplete contradiction to the level of challenges the characters face. Most of the issues facing the crew seem like they could have been easily solved by their current technology. Also, they have a real AI on board of the ship. Thinking, self-aware artificial intelligence. Only it's the most useless AI in the history of AI. He doesn't seem to to have any of the advantages you would expect a super-intelligent being to have. Katee a lowly human can manually pilot the ship better than him. His only advantage seems to be that he can read the ship's sensors. All things else he's completely useless.

Bad acting, poor storyline and each time, the miraculous solution at the last second that saves everybody. Won't watch season 2

I watched all 10 episodes, and this is clearly a sci-fi series for the new generation of touchy-feely politically correct wimps that have crushed the social fabric of humanity. The only element missing is having these characters take regular selfies and it would be complete. I didn't hate it, the story line takes a lot of liberties, but the special effects are decent, and they've come up with some creative future tech or explanations thereof - like how dark matter is a key component in future tech. There is FAR too much drama, and I eventually started skipping over those sequences because they really add nothing to the story. As another reviewer pointed out, its like a bunch of petulant teenagers were put on a space ship and let loose on each other. Skipping over all these sequences almost halves the run-time, and results in a better sci-fi experience in my opinion. There is a decent story plot, with lots of possibility, but they really could have done a better job of filling it out... a times I thought maybe this is a modern take on Star Trek, but then too many Star Trekkie things happened too often, and then I thought it was a sci-fi take on Grey Anatomy or Pretty Little Liars or some other teen hormone fueled cat fight.

what would you expect joining actors of such calibre like gipsy(flash), clark kent(super girl), and goku(dragonball evolution) and kate(anger management)? a roller coaster of shitty acting and lazy writing.

avatar

I got 2 black eyes from the facepalm this series gave me. Still, I caught my attention, but man this show is frustating. If the writing/acting doesn't improve, i'm not watching S02

avatar

there's nothing worse than a science fiction show failing the science bit.

avatar

I got flashbacks to Stargate: Universe watching this. Incredibly similar, in the same way, the first half of the first season has been really quite bad. It'll probably get canceled the same way Stargate Universe did, when it was just getting good.

Started watching this because I wanted to see how bad it was. And damn. The crew on this ship acts like like little children. And where does they control the ship? Don't they know chair exists? How they control the monitors when the ship is rocking around is hilarious. And they made all the display UI graphic on MS Word! Can't believe shows like this get a new season...
