Documents come to light which throw doubt on the end of the dangerous white out cycle that besets Carpathia. Tipper has to stop avoiding his past. Tate comes clean. Fleur takes a risk. Cas’ worst and best qualities are on display and Berger uses religion to manipulate.
More background on the AC’s. Character development all over the place.
Good sense of urgency and suspense.
Tipper’s pain and resolve.
Tipper relieving that moment of his youth.
Nice tie back to previous episodes.
There was an awful lot going on this week - can’t decide if it was too much.
Lack of empathy for Tate.
Can they make Berger any more menacing? Maybe if he was the head of Slitheron.
After a disappointing second episode, I was pleasantly relieved that this week’s episode stepped up and delivered us some great acting and quality drama. I admit I cried when Tipper “saw” his sisters again.
The survivors of the transport arrive on Carpathia. Fall out from Hoban's death. Fleur has her illusions shattered. The truth beyond the wire is revealed. Berger creates some waves.
Tate's secret wasn't as bad as I thought but still has impact. Personally I thought my idea would have been much stronger.
The lure of power and politics.
Character development of Cass.
Humanity is still flawed.
You have to be kidding right? Survivors just stroll on in, interact with people then get checked out?
I am going to a new planet on the first ship so I take my weight quota in albums and turntables?
Berger way too over done.
A baby now?
After the promise of the first episode, this one really lacked traction for me. There wasn't that sense of suspense we had in the first with Hoban and the Transporter. Of course the stars would be fine. Maybe this was a ground work episode to set us up for the rest of the series. The problems in the storyline really distracted me - fingers crossed things pick up next week.
In the year 2040, Earth went to Hell in a handbag. Nuclear weapons, riots etc. Things were bleak. So Colony Transporters set out to inhabit a new found planet. The show picks up after the firsts colonists have been on Carpathia for ten years when another Transporter has arrived. This is no picture postcard planet. Humans are still humans, filled with secrets and lies enhanced with a large dose of survival.
Hoban (Bamber) returns to discover he has been betrayed and has murder on his mind. We meet the bulk of our main characters. There are big secrets out there. Families are broken. Minds are read. Fireworks.
Damn it all but Jamie Bamber can sport a light beard like nobody's business.
Nice and gritty.
Good mix of characters and well introduced without it seeming contrived.
Lots of clues out there.
It isn't the great things that make us human, it is our flaws.
Stunning scenery - now way this was shot in GB.
Oh Jamie tell me it ain't so!
Want to know more NOW!
There is a fair bit of subtrefuge in this show. Everyone seems to have secrets or hidden agendas. My mind is reeling with one hypothesis about a decision Tate made. Thankfully the next episode (shown the following night in the UK) is DL'ing now. Just hope I am not disappointed.
