Tension Building
26 November 2019 | by starsurfer83See all my reviews

There is a simmering undercurrent of tension building as the season moves along. Part of this is because of the overall season arc that the writer's are weaving rather masterfully for us. There are tense moments aboard the station with the audience having a more omniscient viewpoint than any character. The stakes are raised little by little with each episode. What an arc!

Now, because of the showrunning pedigree, there, of course, were brain farts of logic and science. That's too bad, because the narrative is compelling. I just wish the science consultant had the power to override the b-movie slights popping up throughout the season, because they really do undercut the overall impact of the show.
