Nightflyers

Syfy 2018

In the year 2093, a team of scientists aboard the Nightflyer, the most advanced ship ever built, embarks on a journey to find other life forms. Their mission takes them to the edge of the solar system, and to the edge of insanity, as they realize true horror isn't waiting for them in outer space—it's already on their ship.

    BTW don’t bother with this show. Weak plot. Piss poor writing. Terrible edit job. Broken story line. And the last 2 episodes won’t make sense. Save your time & go watch something else.

    Zzzzzzzzz.... Looks more like an insane asylum in space than spaceship on a mission. For the likes of me I can't find one sane pearson on that ship, and not in a good way. It looks like everyone is acting in their own solo show, and then someone took all the pieces and made Nightflyers.

    It was a bit exciting at the beginning but towards the end, it was just hopeless. and the last episode!! what was that ??? not worth watching

    It feels like the creators of Nightflyers were trying too hard to create something unique which sadly resulted in a mishmash of different themes/concepts that didn't really work well with each other imho. While the first few episodes were quite promising, the show slowly disintegrated into singular fragments. Towards the end, it was just too much of everything and it often felt like there were parts missing inbetween episodes, as if they cut out several scenes. One could argue that the way the last few episodes are constructed, it mirrors the emotional state of the crew - but it also takes away from the experience. I can fully understand why some viewers felt confused, the writers could have done a much better job with the material at hand imho since the entire premise has a lot of potential. But with the final episode, I'm not sure what else there is to tell since they have basically used up any possible twist material already. Overall, the show does provide food for thought regarding its main theme but sadly doesn't offer many answers or insights and only scratches the surface regarding the various themes/concepts it presents. Thus, it doesn't bring anything new to the table thematically and even with their attempt of a different approach, Nightflyers disappoints with shallowness.

    Do they not vet these people before they go into space? One seriously damaged crew. Quite a good show though. Enjoyed it. Worth a watch.

    This could have been a pretty decent series but it’s got, for me at least, one big problem - you just don’t care for any of the characters so it’s hard to get invested in this show. Combine this with mediocre plot and you got another series canceled by SyFy.

    I hope there is another season and it starts to make sense. Let's tell a good story and not try to be the next lost.

    Pretty good. From the mind of George R.R. Martin (as yet another new book/series, like the Game of Thrones Prequel book just released, instead of actually finishing Game of Thrones!). "Event Horizon" (or "Cloverfield Paradox") meets "Interstellar".

    Wow, that ending was an epic thrill of sour cheese.

    It's got plot holes you could pilot a colony ship through, but it did scratch the Event Horizon itch for me. I thought the cast were overall good and the production design clearly had a lot of effort put into it, so it's a shame the writing wasn't up to par. I liked most of the characters enough that I'd watch another season, with the hope that the writing is less of a mess. As a standalone series, it could have been so much more than it was, and although I enjoyed it I also found myself exercising a _lot_ of forgiveness.
