Combination of so bad it's good, and a little bit interesting
11 December 2016 | by mgl-92037See all my reviews

Let me start out by saying that if ever a less talented actor or actress than Halle Berry won an Oscar, I would be surprised. She can't act---at all, in anything. If anything, the actor who plays her husband is worse, and they have less chemistry together than Lily Tomlin and John Travolta in Moment by Moment. To be honest, this is part of the "so bad it's good" element. I enjoy seeing them struggle through their lines, syllable by syllable, and sometimes even letter by letter, like children who have only learned the sounds of speech, or like aphasic stroke victims. It is just absolutely precious to watch them try to act. The robot boy is not a bad little actor. The absolute worst is Grace Gummer, the nepotistic no-talent who is also ugly as sin. My god, did Streep threaten the producer's children or something? Every scene with Gummer induces teeth grinding.

If, over all the acting is mostly in the "so bad it's good category"---including the 0.5 dimensional Jeffrey Dean Morgan---the plot ranges from interesting to bad, bad, bad. The whole sexual dynamic with her hybrid alien "son" was beyond creepy. The "but it's my baby" screech from Halle Berry was offensively stupid. On the other hand, I found the concept of the show rather interesting, at the beginning, and I am a sucker for space stations, to be honest. The end of the second season was beyond bad---beyond horrible. Jesus would have refused to die for our sins if he knew that writing so bad was coming in the future.
