Shades of Lem and Tarkovsky's SOLARIS...a good thing
18 March 2017 | by Mike_OlsonSee all my reviews

Very good pilot episode of what could turn out to be the next big series from Amazon Studios.

"Set in the near future, Oasis tells the story of priest Peter Leigh, who is called to a remote planet where a mysterious multinational company is building the first permanent off-Earth human colony."

Religion is no stranger to science fiction. I've always preferred my science fiction to have religious elements in small doses, if at all. OASIS unites the two with the main character being a priest but it's handled well and is still firmly within the realm of science fiction. Really good science fiction with shades of Lem and Tarkovsky's SOLARIS, mysterious and surreal...that's a good thing.

Hard to tell from just the pilot if this one will have the legs to keep on running but, if you like well-made science fiction and have access to this pilot episode, do yourself a favor and check it out. Everything clicks including a great soundtrack. I'm looking forward to seeing more of this one.
