What do you think? Are you a fan of sci-fi dramas? Will you check out Pandora?
For the entire second episode the show argues Atria is a person, with a soul and not a mindless thrall. Then her friends shoot some clones then blow all of them up, murdering all the people they ostensibly desire to “free”, leaving the evil clone owner alive, because they aren’t “like him”. Laughable. Sorry, the entertainment industry’s social justice mishmash just doesn’t hold water, as usual.
Season One took its time telling us who were the Real Bad Guys & Gals and who wore the white hats. So, Have to see a Season Two. Everybody seems to be splitting from their jobs as Professors & Students at their “Academy” & on to different occupations. Politician, Fleet Admiral, Mind-reader/Telekinetic, Queen of the Galaxy Internet, Spy & Pandora to be is just a few of the different directions our “Study Group” is off to. Should be no shortage of plot lines if our gang is gonna keep helping each other out of the fixes they each get into.… Read more »
Pandora looks like a old school tv show from the 70’S..
This is actually a good show. The characters are very strong. I agree there seems to be a randomness of plot, but this opens multiple avenues of story to come. If given enough time, all the randomness could turn into something really cool. I hope this show continues, because it has huge potential. I’ve lived without TV for the last 4 years. Now that I finally have an antenna, this is one of the only new interesting programs i’ve found. (The Goldbergs/Black-ish/Big Bang are my style.) but this is the only Sci-fy on now that interests me. Please give it… Read more »
Oh, one critique: I wish they were called The Union, not the confederacy. :)Coy
Not impressed. First off what is this bs that ever new TV show has to have a gay character. First thing that put me off the show. A Second the Main character acts all much but the first sign of trouble he curls up in a bag as a frighten girl. All the others characters are great, the mistake is with her. I give this series half a season before it’s canceled.
It is not bs, it is about representation. It is not a gimmick to include LGBTQ+ characters, it isn’t a “token” that should or should not be chosen, LGBTQ+ people exist, LGBTQ+ characters exist. From your review, it sounds like you want to see another fearless cis male character. “What is this bs that most television shows need the token, fearless straight guy.”
This review aged like milk. Yikes.
This show has know idea what it is or wants to be, it needs to quit being too many things at once and pick a direction, three episodes in and I wish it was cancelled after two…
Great premise and solid character potential. But the storyline jumps around, the timeline makes no sense and there’s little character or plot development. Its sooooo confusing. Let’s get some new writers….
Just watched – seems OK so far
I am watching this now. Yikes. It is not off to an officious start. It’s corny, the dialogue is contrived and trite. The plot is ridiculous. But it’s summer and the pickings are slim. So, I will probably stick with it. It’s either this, or Star Trek TOS again for the hundredth time.
Dumb dialogue. This could be so much better
