    ''Origin''
    Surprised that there's been no mention of this new show, which debuted this past Wednesday on YouTube Premium, their monthly subscription video service. The first 2 (of 10) episodes are avaiable free to watch. A 1 month free trial is offered making season 1 a virtual giveaway for interested viewers.

    It's ''LOST'' meets ''Dark Matter'' meets ''Manifest'' neets ''Sunshine'' meets ''Event Horizon''...in SPACE! of course... ;)
    The first two eps, tasked with setting up the storyline and characters, moved briskly enough to keep my interest. Guess I'll sign up for the trial to see how it progresses. Just make a note to cancel before the 30 day period ends...

    This was my binge watch this week.
    I actually found myself quite enjoying it. Even some of the characters that I wasn't super fond of ended up growing on me at least a little bit. Halfway decent mystery too.

    Some of the science and space stuff was a real pile of garbage (as so often happens in almost every show like this), but a lot of the future earth stuff was pretty neat. Heck, the spaceship was a decent enough attempt too, despite some scientific problems, but the design was a fairly interesting one.

    The best part is that the story really held my interest as the episodes progressed. Thumbs up.
