So I'm caught up finally on season one. I have mixed feelings. I like the overall world building of the show and the lengths they go to get the science right...or at least as close to right as possible. On the other hand, I don't care about any of the characters. Its not that I dislike them, just none of them are interesting. They're all the most boring lifeless people I've ever seen.
Miller is about the only exception and that's only partly because I like Thomas Jane.
Maybe that's supposed to be the point. These are just ordinary people, but even for ordinary people that have been swept up in something bigger than any of them, I don't particularly care about them. None of them have anything one thing that makes me want to know more about them or invest any time in them. Is Naomi OPA? I'm not sure, maybe...but it doesn't seem to matter. Is what's his name something more than just a thug with something to prove beyond loyalty to Naomi? Doesn't seem that way. Is Holden looking to redeem himself for past guilt or live up to some unfulfilled potential. Not sure.
Hopefully season two fleshes this out more and builds more upon these characters.
