While all the other reviews are correct...
15 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

and I gave this a 5.... I still watched it through to the end. Chalk it up to sentimentalism, but I really enjoyed some of the writing - the dialog was cheesy as hell sometimes ("We *all* have some explaining to do") but there were honest moments and I actually got surprised a couple times by the success of the attempts to make the characters more relatable and believable.

Treat Williams was a fantastic choice of casting. I could sympathize just enough with the character Max and his menacing side was brilliant.

Most of the other characters were mostly flat and staid, but as I mentioned, there were these glimmers of honest dialog that kept me happy.

All in all, most of the cast was damn good - far better than I expected for a 2 episode miniseries that Netflix basically introduced as "eco-maniacs ruin earth for the rest of us."

Heck, it was good enough that I opened an account on here finally just to comment on it!

Watch it if you have any appreciation for crappy sci-fi or good attempts at making films. I am now off to rate Stargate SG1... 30 stars for every episode!
