So, this is a new show on Syfy, which immediately discredits it, however it is pretty good. Space thriller/detective story???

It has a bunch of random new actors, who all seem to be putting in the effort to make sure they make it, and its noticable. Ton of different plot lines, all tied into each other into a really complex storyline.

Graphics aren't super, but the acting is really good. 8.3 so far on IMDB.

Thomas Jane plays a detective looking into the events of the exploded spaceship, and his role is pretty cool

Thanks for spreading the word. There are channels that I never check out and end up missing good things.

Watching the pilot so you can stop whining. They are doing sooooo much world building in this first episode. Also introducing 67 characters. What is going on?!

Why Chris didn't want me worrying...
► Show Spoiler


The show was neat and visually impressive (for a Syfy show), but nothing really hooked me. I was often confused by what was going on where. I couldnt tell if they were on the same ship or multiples. I'm a dumb.

I won't remove it from my queue, but it isn't going to be the top of it either

It took me a few episodes too. Once they focus on the smaller group and the geopolitics, it becomes far more interesting
