Storyline

"Grand Star", formerly known as "Ice Corp.", is a futuristic, action-adventure series based on the saga by French novelist Georges J. Arnaud. In the latter part of the 21st century, there is a cataclysmic explosion on the moon, which was being used as a nuclear waste dump and the earth is turned into a frozen mass of ice. Billions died but a few thousands have managed to rebuild their lives in railway stations like "Grand Star", where they must learn to survive in the frozen landscape home to strange near humans of unknown origin who can withstand the cold and the "renewer" who profess the return of the Sun. Starring Canadian actors Tyler Johnston (Godiva's, Blood Ties), Kyle Labine (Freddy vs. Jason), Tammy Hui (Battlestar Galactica) and Tristan D. Lalla (Superstorm). Written by Anonymous

How to reduce an epic
31 August 2008 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

The series is based on "The Ice Company" series of comics, by G. J. Arnaud, that spans over 80 comic books and 20 years. The comic -almost- has the depth of Dune in politics, the vision of 2001, and the atmosphere of Blade Runner.

The TV series on the other hand, is targeted to (very young) teenagers. It has reduced the politics to these of a town mayor (the governor of the single Grand Star base), the vision to the here and now (looking for the sun to shine), and the atmosphere to that of McDonalds meets the Mad Max. Oh, and the (new) protagonist is telekinetic as well. Hmmm..

And, I really couldn't stand the way the scenery is designed. All through the series there is talk about energy shortages, power outages and death due to lack of energy (and, consequently, heating). And there is electric lighting in abundance, running electronic equipment everywhere having large and bright displays, all the corridors have good lighting, in all public places the props are neon lights and bright displays, and all doors are motorized. Hope they do not open the windows while turning on the air condition. The electric bill should be awful.

If you like good sci-fi please do not bother with this series. On the other hand, if you are a 12yo and only like cartoons, then this won't be too difficult to watch. And will have human actors.
