Does Another Life suck?

I agree with this review of the Netflix series Another Life. The reviewer says that he watched the first four episodes and then quit because he couldn’t take any more. I feel that way after watching even less of the series.

Katee Sackhoff was tomboyishly cute when she was in her twenties, but now she just looks ugly, although her body has become more cut than when she played Starbuck on the Battlestar Galactica remake. Not to be confused with Dirk Benedict who played the real Starbuck who was a man. And in case you take me to task for focusing on Sackhoff’s MILF body, that seems like it was the whole point of the series. In just about every scene, there’s an excuse for her to be wearing practically nothing. It’s even worse than the gratuitous scenes in the original Star Trek series in which William Shatner took off his shirt.

The premise of the series is that a future Earth sends its only spaceship capable of interstellar travel on a mission to discover the source of a UFO. But the supposedly best and brightest sent on this mission are all a bunch of morons who can’t get along with each other and wind up getting into a lot of fistfights and worse. And the guy on earth investigating the UFO thing, who coincidentally is married to Katee Sackhoff the leader of the mission (and only person on the mission over the age of 30), also comes off as a bozo who has no idea what he’s doing, except it involved playing Beethoven music to the UFO thing.

There’s also a lot of political correctness like a transgender (or something) crew member.

Yeah, I can’t take any more of this crap.

  1. I’ve seen 3 episodes and of COURSE there is a trans doctor. I mean, how could you crew a spaceship with out the trans community represented? The main problem though is that the bickering crew is less believable than the UFO or Earth having an interstellar ship. It’s like they used a selection process that totally precluded even being in space.

    • What embarasses me, as a human, is that in the 70s NASA sent out a circular record made from metal, like an old 78 or 33 1/3 LP. I think it was part of the Voyager program. It is now beyond the solar system and might be picked up by someone or something someday. I don’t care what music it was on that record, and I love some music more than most things. It’s embarassing as hell. It’s not the way to make interstellar friends, sending out a damn Columbia Record Club advertisement! For all we know their playing that record could offend them to the core or even kill them. Seriously, whoever was responsible for that in NASA got some splainin to do.

      • No one is going to find it. Space is vast, a fact that’s ignored on crappy sci-fi like this stinker of a series.

    • After unconditional victory is won by the left in WWT (World War Transsexuality) what new front will be opened up by SJW cadres? I’m guessing the opening shots of WWB (World War Bestiality) will be fired before 2024.

  2. I never thought she was especially cute in BSG — just thin.

    I liked the premise and worldbuilding of the BSG remake but the show itself was utterly joyless, with the tone of a Holocaust documentary. I hated almost all the characters except for Olmos’ Admiral. The change from the old to the new Starbuck epitomized why new BSG was no fun to watch.

    I get the feeling I’d have the same complaints with this show, except the premise itself doesn’t sound near as good as BSG.

    • The first season of BSG was 5/5, the rest was nearly unwatchable with the expection of the Pegasus trilogy. No plot, no characters and no logic.

  3. I couldn’t even make it through the first episode, when I tried to watch it.

  4. Yes. It’s a current year daytime soap opera full of today’s narrative. Too much talking, too much girly office politics.

    A crew like that makes for good drama, but totally ruins a plot surrounding a spacecraft headed for the unknown. Two women having it out over their feelings while trying to recouple the spacecraft during a life or death emergency? There is a reason women can’t be trusted as Captains. The gay sex scene? Gross. Bat People? Just lol.

  5. I liked her in Longmire.

    I’ve started watching Occupied on Netflix. Iowahawk recommended it. It’s in Norwegian with subtitles, but so far I think it’s good.

    • Completely agree here. This is the best new show I’ve watched in a long time.

  7. I’ve only seen the first episode. It was pretty lame, but not Space 1999 lame. I’ll try a few more an see.

  8. Everyone has their own tastes. Personally I really liked the show and am looking forward to its continuation. It was fresh and innovative, and very creative. I found it very entertaining and binge watched the whole thing in a matter of days. Yours is one of several whining, unintelligent reviews I’ve read about the show. Your loss. And no, there is no ‘transgender’ character. You’re just a moron.

  9. > Katee Sackhoff … now she just looks ugly, although her body has become more cut.

    This goes to show that guys don’t care about a cut body. We are much more attracted to a pretty face as long as she isn’t obese. For another example, see Jillian Michaels.
