Extant – CBS
The summer 2014 TV shows are ending so I thought I would begin writing some short reviews. Note: The finale is somewhat SPOILED for Extant.
The Set and Art Design were cool and futuristic but also livable and comfortable. Good job there.
Halle Berry’s acting was spot on throughout the series. She was probably the only character I really cared about. I did like Katie Sparks, but alas Katie was neither here or there (if you know what I mean).
The story wasn’t too bad but the execution was too slow especially during the middle episodes.
Why was Halle trying to save the world again? Wasn’t “the offspring” already here on Earth. Won’t the spores be back to find him?
If people knew (or were told) they were seeing a mirage (albeit a pretty convincing mirage) wouldn’t that take the fun out of seeing your loved ones alive again? I mean the characters still know the folks they used to love are really dead, right?
I guess overall I liked the premise, and some parts of the episodes, and Halle Berry, but I don’t need this show to come back next summer.
