Intergalactic

Sky's new sci fi series.
I've managed about 10/15 mins of episode one. Should I bother carrying on?

Initial impression.
Cardboard cut out characters, plot is just your very average cliches.
Doesn't seem to know if it wants to be The Bill with blasters or Star wars with pints and rushed? Bloody hell it's a series and they're going at a pace to get the whole thing wrapped up before the first ad break.
I'm normally quite forgiving when a series starts but this one really annoyed me.

Have you seen The Expanse? I'm on series 2 and really enjoying it.

I suggest the producers and director of Intergalactic watch Ep 1 of Expanse and go back to the drawing board.
Definitely along for the ride.
Echoes of Arnie's Mars (Total Recall), Blade runner and the world weary cynicism of the grunts in Aliens.

I think you have saved me from watching Intergalactic. :)

I think The Expanse also has a little Babylon 5 vibe to it too.

It does, it is pretty epic in scale and I can't think of anything better for a sci-fi fix at the moment...

I'd be interested if you gave it the same 10/15 I did.
The opening chase and arrest scene is not too bad.
It was just once they started trying to develop what was obviously the basis of the whole thing I got exasperated and left the bus.
