Another mediocre network attempt at scifi. I'll watch it but the pilot wasn't particularly involving. After all the preview hype, I expected much better.
IMO, a big plot hole is sending one lone astronaut for 1+ yrs to a space station
, not a orbiting laboratory or capsule but a large multi-roomed space station. one person even with AI, to manage the complexities of running the entire station, plus scientific work for 1 year...just not believable. as someone mentioned already...only 1 video record & not transmitted or monitored on earth real time...not believable.
Then there's Remake of AI, complete with a David. Maybe the kid will go Terminator
Even if that happens, which is a possibility given "Extant>>Extinct" and the kid going bratty, nothing new here either.
Dialog, pretty wooden. Scene with Doc & Psychiatrist...predictable to a T. Pregnancy by unknown, invisible alien or AI, take your pick, either one has been done before.
Halle Berry? really not all that wonderful acting either, like she was going thru the motions.
Cliches, plotholes & no drama. And the Man from Helix is back with same acting & dialog style too.
It all becomes clearer when you see "Steven Spielberg" in the credits.
Maybe it'll get better.
