Re: Another Life (Netflix) -- S: Katee Sackhoff -- Sci-Fi Thriller series -- Premieres 7/25/19

Just finished the last episode.

Note to future Earth: If the best people you can find for a long, arduous, dangerous space mission that may determine the fate of the Earth is a bunch of stupid, petty, stupid, horny, stupid twenty-somethings led by a captain who is obviously mentally unstable, then... just don't even bother. I mean, what the fuck? Is there anyone in the future who isn't either an idiot and/or a giant asshole?

This is what got to the wife and I when we tried it.
NO WAY was this setup even close to suspending our disbelief long enough to get into the series.

I still can't believe NF picked this steaming pile up....

Looks like I won't bother with this one. Too many other things to check out.

Lemme put it this way...
To say this series is crappy is an insult to crap.

So itís on par with 90% of other Netflix original series.

I don't what the % is for NF series.
FWIW, I find a lot of good/great series to watch on NetFlix.
Of course, YMMV.

Maybe it's just cause I'm a sucker for these kinds of shows... but I don't get what the hate is about. Other than Katee Sackhoff being kind of terrible at times and the characters often making extremely dumb choices, I've enjoyed the show enough that I binged through 7 of the episodes in a single day.

I am with you. Is it some groundbreaking show? Nope. But I was entertained.

I dont think its nearly as bad as some people here are making it out to be. Its not great but its watchable and mildly entertaining. I'm 5 eps in and plan to finish it.

For those who can't get enough of Ms. Sackhoff, there is her other sci-fi masterpiece currently playing on NF:
