Netflix Sci-Fi horror from George R. R. Martin...but due to contractual obligations to HBO, the series is based on the film adaptation & not directly from Martin's novella.

Slow burn start. Characters seem unlikeable. One or two visually gory scenes akin to GOT....story seems straight forward.

Never been a big fan of mixing sci-fi & horror (Pandorum, Event Horizon) but I'm curious to see how this pans out.

Ha! He just couldn’t resist

Overall the series was a big old meh! At time it had my attention and had a lot of promise but didn’t deliver.

I never read the book so not sure how close the source material is?

Yeah it was pretty meh.

That's one of the main reasons I don't like the horror/sci-fi genre...it always relies on too much flashbacks & cerebal (sp?) metaphors. Which IMO takes away from the sci-fi aspect.

Can you imagine if Lucas & Martin collaborated in a film!!??!
