    So anyone here watched it all?

    I'm not sure whether I like it or not.

    Parts of it seemed good and I did enjoy it but I really felt like this is stuff we've seen tons of times before, and done better on lower budgets if that makes sense. I really found myself swinging between liking this show and hating this show and I do want to see where they go with this but I'm not expecting anything amazing.

    BTW did anyone pick on the fact William is Danny Pink from Dr Who? Same actor.

    There's a whole thread on the show in Science Fiction and Fantasy forum...

    I'm only on about episode four. It's kind of a slog. It's definitely not as good as either of Katee Sackhoff's previous shows (and one of those is a detective western.) It's like they tried make a more science fiction-y Star Trek but they're not good at writing either Star Trek or science fiction in general. :shrug:

    It's good in a so bad it's good way. I like the Salvare. Also the best character is the hologram played by that actor what was on Doctor Who.

    I didn't look there I thought this went into the TV forum so well if the mods desire it they can lock this thread. I will pop over there.

    I just read an article calling it the worst show of 2019. :lol:

    Ask yourself this question: "Is it science fiction, fantasy, horror etc.?" If the answer is yes. If probably goes in the SF&F section

    I tried watching it...I got about 4 episodes in and quit. At least Katee Sackoff is getting stuff to do after Longmire but I didn't really like this one.

    Katee Sackhoff was the only reason I stayed with this series, it was bad all the way through, but the ship was cool. That was the only decent thing.

    This might've been the worst TV pilot I've ever seen, but I started episode two anyway. Then I had to turn it off a couple minutes in because the Captain refused to tell anyone that she killed their fellow crew member in self defense.

    That irritated me so much. She finally told the back up XO, right? The one that was a long time friend...

    I just love how the crew just stand around while that guy tried to kill the captain. So casual and blasé

    The only thing missing was them taking out smartphones to record it for their social media.

    And why is that?

    I am disappointed they never took the alien AI or actual alien with them as a new ally.

    Instead

    They leave and the planet gets blown up

    The whole "storm Area 51" time has arrived, and it made me think who would be stupid enough to actually attempt it.

    The crew of the Salvare would do it. And then act indignant that there are people there to stop them.
