Netflix has released a trailer for its next science fiction series Another life, featuring Battlestar GalacticaKatee Sackhoff. The 10-episode series starts on July 25 and looks like a fun cross between the first-contact movie Arrival and the Syfy channel Black matter.
The series follows Commander Niko Breckinridge (Sackhoff), who was chosen to lead a mission to a distant planet after an alien spacecraft passed to Earth. All the tropes of a "reluctant leader leaving for a dangerous mission" type show are present: loved ones have the promise of being back, lost sight of, and members of the meditating team on their place in history. Meanwhile, her husband (played by Justin Chatwin) is responsible for determining where the artifact is coming from, and it seems that there are bigger ramifications for the fate of the man. humanity. Along the way, extraterrestrial monsters, crew members apparently developing strange powers, as well as cockpit actors also play a role in the story.
The series seems to have the vibe of some big sci-fi sci-fi shows from the early 2000s, such as Andromeda, Firefly, Stargate SG-1, as well as shows like Black matter, Killjoys, L & # 39; orvilleand Netflix Lost in space. These programs were not exactly at the same level of genre projects as Battlestar Galactica or L & # 39; extendedbut they are quite fun entertainments that rely on a pretty decent hook and characters fun enough to keep watching. This one seems to have enough mystery and planetary exploration. Hope it will be a little better than Syfy Nightflyers.
