Watched it off my DVR last night. It was…meh. The visuals were mostly well done, except for the Krill or whatever they were called. There was just something about the way they moved that made me think the guys in the costumes couldn’t see or move very well. It stood out.
The comedy was also kind of jarring at times. I do admit to laughing out loud a couple of times, mostly at the interplay between some of the supporting characters. I don’t much like the Gordon character (helmsman), but I do like the interaction between him and John (the navigator). The scene where they discuss the dog on the communications screen was one of my LOL moments.
If the show wants to be a sci-fi drama with a few lighter moments tossed in, that’s fine, and I’d watch it, but right now the comedy bits tend to yank you right out of the sci-fi universe, and that’s not good for a show that wants to be sci-fi first.
