Review of Another Life

Thursdays, 3:00 AM ET on Netflix

60 minutes

Created by Aaron Martin (Slasher, Saving Hope, DeGrassi: The Next Generation), who also serves as showrunner, Another Life centers on astronaut Niko Breckinridge (Sackhoff) who is focused on searching for alien intelligence. She leads a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. As Niko and her young crew investigate, they face unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Add to blender: Alien, Arrival, Lost in Space, Contact, and bits and pieces of every sci fi blockbuster from the last 30 years, then set to purée.

It starts a little rough but gets better. They quickly run out of sci-fi troupes to use and the plot meanders around in search of a reason to be on TV. Its mostly one disaster after another, counter pointed with the mystery of alien contact.
