Trivia

Repurposed from Moore's take on "The Thing" which was planned as a 6 to 8 hour mini-series on SyFy with participation from Frank Darabont at one point. See more »

Goofs

The series depicts day as bright and night as dark in the Arctic. However, north of the Arctic circle (which is the implied location), because of the tilt of the earth, they would have 24 hours of daylight in the summer, and 24 hours of dark in the winter. See more »

Mediocre
30 March 2014 | by chigwallaSee all my reviews

While the writing had its moments, the scripts were predictable for the most part. By about Episode 5, I found myself watching mainly because I had already seen that many episodes that I might as well give it the benefit of the doubt.

Without exception, the cast was unable to make me believe that they believed what they were saying was spontaneous and emotive.

Don't get me wrong, it's not 'bad'....if you enjoy a lot of the fare coming out of the entertainment mill these days you'll probably enjoy it. If you don't watch a lot of TV because you have a hard time finding programming that's well written and assembled by artists, don't waste your time. If I didn't know better, I'd say the writers gave up and just wanted to get it done after about episode 8. The season finale was silly, inconsistent and tedious to watch.

It's hilarious (well, more like ludicrous) that they expect anyone to still be interested when season 2 airs in almost two years (winter 2015).

This show is one of the shining examples of that well-worn Ernie Kovacs saying: "TV is a medium: it's neither rare nor well done"
