High-budget science fiction series derived mostly from original stories by top SF authors. The unrelated stories (two by John Varley) are re-set in a future Utopia, Betaville, which is being undermined by out-of-control technologies.
In the future, Earth's entire population is being wiped out by an unstoppable virus. Mankind's only hope for survival is to launch a spaceship stocked with clones in cryogenic freeze, which will return to a devastated planet and re-populate it. Prior to its arrival, however, its crew of 6 is awoken to face a threat to the ship. They must come to terms with the workings of the ship, the dangers faced by their ship, the realization that they are clones, and their ultimate destiny: to save their race. Written by

First, let me just say that Deepwater is actually based on a trilogy of books (Deepwater Black, Deepwater Landing & Deepwater Angels) by a fantastic New Zealand sci-fi writer Ken Catran. The credits for his name roll by WAY too quickly. And I apologise in advance for any fans of the show, since I know how annoyed I get when other people bash the shows I like with petty accusations, but... well, I tried to give it a chance, I really did. But I felt really let down after reading the books (DO go and read them). Apart from the character names, the ship's name, and other such names, the whole STORYLINE is different... the whole issue of prexing is reversed. After a few episodes I couldn't take the weakish plots, the kinda of gaudy special effects and the so-so acting any longer. Reb is NOTHING like how he's supposed to be. Even his HAIR is different from how it's described in the book. So, to sum it up, if you don't really have anything more important to do for half an hour, then watch Deepwater. But PLEASE just read the books by Ken Catran. They show the true story, they are actually challenging, interesting, there is a POINT, the character's relationships actually develop! Don't be put off by these TV series... and I hope they re-make the series or a movie based on the REAL plot soon!
