In several episodes, members of the Atlas crew are seen crying tears. However, tears would not roll down a person's face in a weightless environment, but form into watery spheres and float away (a dangerous prospect at they could float into electronics and short them out). See more »

People are just angry because it's not what they expected
5 September 2020 | by malinx-63745See all my reviews

This is an excellent, slow burn drama, with amazing acting. Definitely not the most original idea, but it's SO freaking refreshing to not see an over the top action-packed sci-fi series where every character is behaving irrationally every second to create unnecessary drama, because the teens watching can't watch anything that doesn't stimulate every part of the brain at all times.

The series allows you to actually feel for the characters, because they actually act like people. Could have done without the daughters arc, but whatever, it's a sweet story I guess. But yeah, this is a heavier kind of psychological drama, SET IN SPACE. Just watch it.
