Watched the first episode last night. I thought it was decent enough to keep watching.

Watched ep 1 with the kids. They’re into it, but it’s pretty fucking brutal. The lead dude is awful. It looks like a movie, though, so that’s a plus. We shall continue. I love the old show. Watched all the old eps a million times when sci fi channel was sci fi.

I mean, I'm still watching it. I just don't like that character in particular.

But the rest of it works for you, more or less?

Yeah pretty much. I'm five episodes in, it's pretty slow moving. But the visuals are good and a few of the characters are interesting.

We binged the whole series over a few days and it was pretty enjoyable despite some glaring wtf moments. The science is far more fantasy that fiction though it doesn't really establish itself that way so i found it tough to suspend disbelief a bunch of times.

Ep5 spoiler:
Spoiler: show
for example, there is a bit where the mom character takes the chariot and a bunch of gear and goes off, doesn't tell anybody what she is doing except for some vague nonsense to her husband who inexplicably goes along with it, and then proceeds to RIDE A FUCKING WEATHER BALLOON TO THE EDGE OF FUCKING SPACE to observe the anomaly, then somehow manages to land exactly where she took off from and return to the camp


also the characters are impossibly stupid (ep5-ish).
Spoiler: show
after being established that there are large hostile apex predators roaming around at night, several scenes later people are walking freely through the woods without the slightest care or any protection whatsoever.


and some of the writing choices were absolutely lazy (ep9-10):
Spoiler: show
and then there is the fact that the Resolute couldn't receive communication from the Jupiter ships on the ground despite the fact that the ships can communicate with each other over long distances, and Will was able to communicate with his dad (while in orbit) via that short band radio or whatever he had. You mean to tell me that an interstellar spaceship doesn't have multiple redundant secondary communication systems? To be honest, i was letting that stuff slide because i was expected there to be some sort of trap on the Resolute once the ships got off the planet....but nope. C'mon, NASA was able to communicate with the Apollo capsules on the moon in 1969 and these guys can't figure out a way to communicate with a ship in orbit in 2040-something?


And yet i still enjoyed it... :haha:
