Defying Gravity last five episodes
After seeing Anim8r mention that the episodes had come out that made
me want to go watch them (remember I like to complete series) so I
found them and watched the last five episodes where we see the crew
find out their real mission. Which creates all sorts of drama as the
crew of the Antares mission has various reactions to the existence of
Beta and it's role in their being chosen for the mission.
Drama is pretty much the sole purpose of these episodes. We know it
isn't science based fiction given the apparent gravity that exists
throughout the ship. They could have easily set this up in some remote
unreachable location on Earth and told the same sort of story. Sort of
like that show that went into the Amazon. With that show claiming a
supernatural aspect while this one is claiming an alien/religious
aspect (with the one astronaut claiming the beings are from God/the
Devil depending on whether they help/hurt her.) Of course there's also
the way that everyone seems to have a romantic connection with others
in the program.
Hmm, reading through what was planned for additional seasons I'm sort
of glad there were none. It's not a bad story that Parriot planned on
telling but it is a drawn out tale that ends up rebooting all that we
would have watched.
What did you watch?
