Really good, but makes you wish there was more
21 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was very surprised by this series. Not that I had initial reservations but I did wonder if it would work with each episode having such short running times. No fear of that. It works wonderfully, so much so that I do wish there was/is more and perhaps with the episodes a little longer. The series looks good, the black and white makes certain objects, variable in significance, seem more powerful than they are. Each episode is shot beautifully and even the effects are good, if perhaps not amazing. The Mercury Men is very well written as well, light-hearted but also very thoughtful with some fun references to classic sci-fi from the 50s, while the stories are suspenseful and exciting if simple. The characters do have some degrees of dimension, stronger in some episodes than others, and the acting is good.

All in all, a really good series, worth checking out.

9/10 Bethany Cox
