I watched the first three episodes, and I have to say that I wasn't quite enamored with much. There are a few performers in there that I'm totally thrilled with (Thomas Jane is always a joy to watch, as is the reliable Shohreh Aghdashloo), but I couldn't quite build a foundation around those first three hours that would compel me to hang with it. Don't get me wrong: I will finish out that season as I do own it for that very reason... but if nothing develops to tickle my fancy that may be all she wrote so far as that franchise is concerned by yours truly.
Still, I did notice the story in Deadline the other day (here) confirming that the network has indeed renewed the show for a third season. This was a bit of a surprise since I'd read some commentary a week or two back about how everyone in SciFi media thought the property was headed for the chopping block due to lackluster ratings. Hopefully some good will come from this, and man's dark journey into the stars will endure.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
