Gets better after the pilot but best thing about the show so far: the soundtrack.
This series is great for the typical sci-fi watcher, and is a sort of campy, yet a little darker, feel. If you like Stargate series with a dash of SGU, then this show is for you. The pilot and first part of season 1 start off slow, with character building and just getting an overall feel for the setting. This is what happens with all new series. Luckily, they ease you in to a very good mystery by the end of season 1 and should continue to make for a great series.
I miss the day of firefly. ..This was very nicely done , love the chemistry .great show
This show warmed my cold, dead sci-fi heart. Really great world building (although it's a smorgasbord of cultural appropriation), a woc lead with agency, wonderful relationships between the main trio and an entertaining and complex supporting cast. It's a really cool show.
