Netflix sci-fi Another Life (with added Sackhoff factor)

What's Hot
TimmyOTimmyO Frets: 4024
Anyone watching? 

I've done 2 and a bit episodes - seems to be a bit kit-assembly of plot devices from standard sci-fi stories but entertaining enough for the scifi-starved among us

    Didn't get through the first episode it was so shite. Shame as I had been looking forward to it and like Sackhoff.

    But the writing is absolutely terrible, and the acting of most of the crew just as bad. It's like Hollyoaks in space, there's nothing about any of these people that would think they could crew a double decker bus, let along a scientific space vessel.

    But Garth Ennis' The Boys has arrived on Amazon Prime so I'm going to watch that instead.

    I've watched a few more and it just gets worse with each episode :-/ 

    Like so many bad scifi series it's become Eastenders In Space, and the space bits are shit

    Fell asleep during the first one but before that noticed the editing was crap and it was all a bit soap-opera.
    Binged all 8 eps of The Boys. Not as good as i had hoped from the trailers but worthwhile way to while away 8 hours.

    We are up to episode 4 as Mrs T quite likes it.  I think its bloody awful.  Badly written and badly acted. So many potholes I dont really know where to start.  Inevitably we will watch it over the next few nights until it's finished.

    it seems unfair to highlight a single example when there are so many bizarrely clumsy plot and general story-beat lurching clangers, but when the instagrammer gets geared-up with the swat team I was just like "oh come on it's like you're daring people to turn off"

    It’s crap but oddly compelling. Sad to say I’m hooked.
