    I wouldn't bother watching it. It very slow and dull. Didn't last through the first episode.

    It like 1/3 plot, 1/3 science bits by experts and 1/3 fake crew interviews.

    I recorded the first episode but haven't had time to watch it yet. Was hoping rather than expecting it to be any good though.

    doesn't sound like you actually got to the proper first episode. Girl with the radio, much better and better quality when you get to that bit..
    the spacex, Robert zubrin and other interviews/bits are just kind of back filler.

    I lasted the first episode and wished I hadn't - very boring.

    Thanks for the heads up guys, I was thinking about watching it but don't think I'll bother now.

    I didn't like the way it was filmed. Soap opera quality visuals. Thought this was going to be a big budget series but it's really budget. I'll stick it out cos I love space stuff but it better improve.

    Got to episode two, now getting fed up with the going back in time and the crew moments. This really is a low budget soap opera, there is nothing new for me here and I won't waste anymore time on it.

    I thought EP2 was far better than the first one.

    Disappointed to see documentary bits in e1, e2 better. Also was expecting poor performance from Ben Cotton but he has been OK. He was rubbish in Stargate Atlantis, such a wimp :)
    Great visuals.

    Just watched the first episode - kind of mixed opinion - quite boring in some ways but it did capture some of the passion of exploring a new frontier which is something that we seem to have become quite complacent about over the last 20 years or so.

    the clips aren't just from spacex you got degrass tyson, zurbrin and other organisations .
    however spaceX is the only ones actually building hardware to get us to mars.

    but yeah caught up on the second episode last night and it's poor.

    shame as the second half of the firt episode i thought was good, then it went downhill again.

    Re-watched Red Planet and The Martian to compensate :D
