Everything can have consequences significant for the destiny of humanity.
Another Life is created by Aaron Marton, writer of projects as diverse as Killjoys, Being Erica, Slasher or Degrassi.
The new generation, and from the trailer, it seems that we are going to find a mix between Night flyers, the Stargate saga, Dark Matter and those films from the subgenre of “space mission in trouble.”
The series begins with the inferior officer doing double penance while riding the solar systems.
On the one hand, she has had to abandon her daughter and her partner on Earth (a scientist trying to do with an alien crystalline structure parked in a meadow what Amy Adams did in Arrival, but it comes out dull).
On the other, it forces to support a crew composed of post-adolescent, almost adolescent, insipid and unbearable characters.
That kind of resistance to Breckinridge’s authority leads Ian Yerxa, a second-in-command.
He chose because incorporating the commander into the mission also meant that he was relieved of leadership.
Tyler Hoechlin plays it, is the actual black hole from the adjoining outer space.
The actor (meat of Teen Wolf and the Superman of the Arrowverse) embarks from the first minute on a stupefying circular journey on three or four generic emotions.
He dances with one of the most theatrical, forced, and little self-conscious interpretations that this one he writes have seen in his life.
Another Life’ treads cliche after cliche
In general, the Other Life offering works poorly from the moment it is on the table for that very reason.
It has apparent traces of cheap product.
The hackneyed story to the extreme, the fuzzy characters, and the broad brush realization.
Even extensive gimmicky details like an interstellar vehicle being fixed by tightening a boiler with a wrench.
And here, “cheap” does not have a single negative connotation.
It is precisely in those second-tier products that revolutions occur in that un-complexes and fluid B series.
But Another Life was born believing that it owes something to someone by shooting in 4K and making a severe gesture.
And there, the (space) ship leaks.
What is most surprising and disappointing about the series is that it has not wanted or known to recognize its proposal as what it cries out to be with such a ridiculous initial bid.
That it is not less, nor worse, but it is something else.
Please take advantage of his inane preliminaries to play them in his favor.
Self-parody liberation, and grotesque instead of those long faces.
