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 »

Don't let the first 4 episodes fool you
27 December 2015 | by jmdetwilerSee all my reviews

The initial draw of season one is very interesting, and there is a definite pull into the series as the viewer learns more and more details that help them understand what they're watching and what exactly is happening to the characters and who they are, but then after about episode 4, the details the viewer is fed to make sense of the plot holes and twists start to sound contrived and feel more like "quick fixes" to otherwise senseless incongruities in the plot.

As the season wears doggedly onwards, the character lines stray farther and farther away from anything believable, and in multiple cases, actors fail to show the logical emotion for the context. each new actor introduced to the season is progressively worse at acting, and by the end, they are truly popcorn-spitting terrible. The casting job suffers from several actors that don't look the part, and the scenarios they find themselves in are very predictable and even laughable in spite of how serious the show attempts to be. so many unrealistic and ridiculous things happen in any one scene that you get the feeling the producers ran out of time, or ideas, or both.
