Storyline

Two jaded space tourism employees (Jack Reynor, Benedict Wong) take up an elderly woman's (Geraldine Chaplin) request for a trip back to Earth - a planet which has lost all life due to a catastrophic "solar fire". She's easily confused but very rich, so what's the harm in indulging her fantasies? As the journey unfolds, their scam begins to eat away at them and they ultimately find themselves dealt a bittersweet surprise. Written by Channel 4

Weak story, rather more fantasy than sci-fi
9 October 2017 | by c-kelsallSee all my reviews

I couldn't give a rat's arse how much this does or does not resemble the story on which it is based. I do care, however, about a good, interesting, well told story. This bland guff fizzles out like a damp fart at a guff-lighting contest. Smells. Actually, I'm not sold on the fabulousness of the series overall, but this is by far the weakest to date. Still far superior to that festering toenail scraping otherwise known as The Shannara Chronicles, though. Honestly, don't get me started....
