Did You Know?


(Around 18 minutes) one crewmember is talking about the War of the Worlds where millions of Americans believed Earth had been invaded by Martians. This refers to the 1930s radio broadcast by Orson Welles. See more »


The first "Duration to Arrival" message says that they have 230 days and 18 hours. That is 63.21% of a year, or just over 7 and a half months. After another update, they are at 188 days and 2 hours. The progress map behind Jerry shows where the Earth was whey they launched and where the Earth will be when they arrive. It is nowhere near 63% of its orbit. See more »


Narrator: [closing narration] It is said that seeing is believing. The crew of the Bradbury heavy mission to Mars might tell you otherwise. They're about to find out that they couldn't trust their own eyes. But who or what can we trust if not ourselves? The answer lies somewhere between takeoff and landing in the Twilight Zone.

Worst episode so far
10 May 2019 | by ltarexSee all my reviews

This was definately the worst episode of the series so far. 54 minutes of overly long, nonsensical boredom. You wait for something to happen, and it never does. The characters are uninteresting, and the plot never goes anywhere. The 'twist' at the end is not even worth mentioning.

This reboot of The Twilight Zone was ranging from mediocre to plain bad so far, but this episode hits a new low even for them. Just skip it.
