• TV: Mars The Miniseriess

    From Chris@VERT/DMINE to All on Wed Nov 30 01:19:17 2016
    Is anyone watching the miniseries currently running on National Geographic channel called 'Mars'?

    It's three episodes in and I'm liking this one a lot. It felt like it might be overly dry at first (which shouldn't be a big deal anyway), but it's great (and unique) combination of real life current day documentary style interviews mixed with a fictional story set in 2033. The story follows a crew of astronoughts landing on Mars and attempting to colonize the planet.

    Has anyone else caught this show? What did you think?

    I plan to watch this. I haven't started it yet. The idea and premise intrigues me.

    The ads leading up to the premier only gave a vague clue as to what the series was. I didn't quite know where they were going with it (in terms of show layout) until I got about halfway through the first episode.
    So far it's been pretty good. I'd like to see more science applied to fiction stories in this way.
