    I've been wondering about the giant snake skeletal remains that were near their settlement. I figured the huge pits had something to do with them and that it was only a matter of time before they made an appearance. But giant flying lampreys? Seriously? It appears that the other creatures were once humans but had devolved into what we see roaming the planet. Sucking snakes that fly and evolution going in reverse? This planet is totally bass-ackwards.

    Some days I think Ridley Scott shouldn't be allowed to produce things without adult supervision. ;)

    (I know, it's not exactly his baby, but his fingerprints are all over it, and whomever is in charge appears to be attempting to out Ridely Scott Ridley Scott)

    After Alien and Blade Runner, I really thought he was the future of cinematic science fiction!


    Turns out I was right. But not the way I had hoped.

    The author seems to forget that its mother can fly, with no obvious means of generating lift.

    I love the declarations that it all sucked. There's a Season 2 that you haven't seen, how do you know what they have planned is awful? Just let the story unfold, holy gee willickers.

    To be fair, part of the story has already unfolded, and that's what people are reacting to.

    And personally, I don't think their reactions are out of line (frankly, Scott burned through the massive good will he earned early in his career a long time ago, so I'll cut him a little slack...but not much).

    I dunno, I was really happy with Prometheus, where most people hated it, so perhaps my view is different than other peoples'. And I tend to not watch shows based on the producer but on whether or not it looks good, the name above the show title might make me more excited about what I'm about to watch, but I don't watch just for him.

    The show's been overall fantastic, it's had a few moments here and there that were bleh but the one thing people keep ignoring is it's highly original, which is a rarity these days.

    loved the first couple episodes and am still watching (all caught up) but the show is pretty boring and I'm disappointed. The problem for me is I hate ALL the characters and there is no rooting interest here.
