    I don't get Joel Kinnaman he is TV's version of Jai Courtney to me.

    Coincidentally they both starred in the god awful Suicide Squad.

    Like Disney, I'm not going anywhere near this streaming service til I can see a reasonable body of content - and even then; this looks interesting but one show can't sell a service. At least Netflix and Amazon both started as a provider of other peoples' content before they got into their own productions...

    Agree about Kinnaman, he has one emotive expression - constipated startled rabbit - and that's about it.

    Looks decent enough, though as coincidence has it, this years Hugo / Nebula Award winner was "The Calculating Stars", itself a story set in an alternative America, where women struggle to become astronauts. The inciting incident is a bit different, and less overtly SciFi here.

    Renewed for a 2nd season by Apple.

    this is not where a thought this series was going, but I guess the title was a big hint.

    So they are going The Man in the High Castle route.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    1: That was done well. The writing and directing stood out.
    That was really good!! Somehow they got me feeling angry that Apollo 10 didn't get to land, then they sold me on the crash killing them. Then that huge sense of relief when they came back over the radio. Wow!

    I'm probably gonna be trying to figure out a way to talk about this episode for a while without saying what happens in the ending. Even saying it was really good feels like it might spoil it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    2: Boom! There's the spark!

    I wonder if they'll make
    her a daughter of one of the
    Night Witches

    Before that, the episode felt like it was tame compared to the first.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,454 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Didn't enjoy the opening episode to be honest episode two it starts to show some promise and it starts to find its feet in episode three for me which is enough to bring me back next week for episode four.

    Chris Bauer automatically brings a show up a level or 2


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    3: What an episode!

    I swear, right at the end there as Gordo
    was driving up, I was all "not her, not her, not her, not her, not her, not her". Well done scriptwriters, well done. Phew!

    I'm guessing
    they got me on how Gordo ****ed her over on the phone and then how much heart she showed on the hike

    I spent almost the first 20 minutes of episode three, chuckling or right out laughing out loud at some of his reactions! :)

    4: Don't
    **** up Molly! Don't **** up!
    :)

    Song at the end: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkqfpkTTy2w

    Wiki for
    Jerrie Cobb (the 'Geraldyn M. Cobb' dedication at the end) who I assume Molly
    is supposed to be based on

    ive only seen the first episode,i didnt know what spoiler was and my wife didnt know there was a spoiler at the start. it does look interesting, does it get woke in later episodes?

    A belief in gender identity involves a level of faith as there is nothing tangible to prove its existence which, as something divorced from the physical body, is similar to the idea of a soul. - Colette Colfer

    It feels like they intended the first 3 episodes to give a feel of where the show is going.
    The first episode sets up some of it but not all of it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    5: I wasn't expecting that!
    MOON BASE! W00t!

    Now I'm not sure where this series is going.
    Time jumps to bigger developments and continued solar system exploration would be cool. Moon base means a Mars mission is definitely in!

    6: Good thing they put that in the ending cos for the most part, that episode felt dull.

    I'm guessing
    Gordo just spotted a USSR base they didn't know about



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,875 ✭✭✭ Unearthly


    Thought Apple released episodes on a Friday?

    Latest episode is available, same with their other shows

    Not a great episode. I did like it initially but it's getting a bit boring now


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    7: Felt like.. Bye Bob, Bye Audience!

    Like it feels like the pacing of the show is now a bit all over the place.

    If this was a binge show it might work but this doesn't feel like they'll keep their viewship where they need people to come back week-to-week in the middle of the streaming wars.

    Maybe it'll work if they have a big story
    on the Moon and they need Baldwin stuck alone up there to be a part of it.

    That was a sad episode this week.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    8: That was very sad. Tried bracing for it but still.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,454 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    9) The last 15 minutes Wow great TV.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    9: Uhoh! This could be
    war, a cover up or maybe he didn't even kill him.. just knock him out so he could bring him in a cuff him or something


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,454 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    What a great finale to the season.


    That was a really great season of TV.


    Ronald D. Moore really is the man for Science Fiction.


    What cool place to be
    Buried


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,875 ✭✭✭ Unearthly


    Last 2 episodes won me back. Great end to the season

    There is a scene after the credits by the way and it's worth seeing :)

    10: That was cool. The throwing of the fuel was SO tense!
    The bonding with the USSR Cosmonaut was done well. Gordo and Tracy patching things up felt grand. Deke coming around and Pams story has developed well throughout the show. Margo showing her feelings as well. Then at the end with Ellens speech.

    Overall I really liked the season. Good variety of stories, nostalgia, space, politics and science fiction. Saying that.. I think it's good they got a second season in advance.. I'm not sure there's as big an audience for the show as they might want.
