Horrible pacing & cheap emotional subject matter
17 September 2018 | by freshness09See all my reviews

This show is bad. It's the kind of show that combines all the classic emotional tropes and clichés to force viewers to feel something. It's literally using all of them. The lesbian black commander who loses her job to the white guy. The single father who lost his wife to mental health who has a recovering drug addict daughter. The career first woman who prioritizes being an astronaut over a mom to the disappointment of her husband.

It's nauseating..

Hulu doesn't typically put out all of the episodes at once. It's clear they did this time because the show is paced so horribly if they didn't there'd be few folks tuning back in..

I've fast forwarded through parts of most episodes and still think I've wasted time..

The only bright spot to me is the cinematography is pretty good.
