Let the Asteroid Hit
19 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

An ambitious story that the writers don't even come close to attending to. It's almost as if the focus is not so much on how the oncoming asteroid will annihilate all life on Earth, but more on how it's going to really put a crimp in the sex lives of the main characters.

The underlying theme to this show is the deification of the newest 'in' group, the computer geek/tech billionaire, which is to be expected in the information age. What doesn't fit is how these people are either unassumingly charming or suave and sophisticated. For every Elon Musk, there are thousands of techies with social anxiety that couldn't carry on a conversation, much less get a woman to go home with him on the same day he met her.

Unfortunately, even in a disaster show, the libido has to be front and center with heavier themes playing backdrop to whether these people can get enough love before the big one turns us all into dust.

Then there's the big idea. The clichéd ark that its creators say isn't for the elite inhabitants of the planet, but really is for the elite inhabitants of the planet is being converted from a 160 seat vessel into one that can carry hundreds of thousands. This would be a great idea, if they didn't have just 6 months to complete it in.....and the Government wasn't trying to both keep a secret on the asteroid and put the kibosh on the ark....and all the various principles involved weren't distracted by the nonsense in their personal lives....and (well, you get the idea) Finally, we've seen this story before. It's called Deep Impact. If you missed that, then it's Armageddon. If you've seen neither, it's more like 'How I Met Your Mother During the Potential End of the World'.

I can't imagine this show getting a second season.
