Ascension (TV Series)
Stars: Tricia Helfer, Gil Bellows, Brian Van Holt, Andrea Roth, Jacqueline Byers, Jessica Sipos
Plot: A young woman’s murder causes the subjects of a century-long mission to populate a new world to question the true nature of the project as they approach the point of no return.
Quick Review: 50 years into a 100 year space mission to find a new home planet, a murder takes place on board the spaceship, and all hell breaks loose. Yet, everything is not what it seems, as the crew of the ship believe that they are in deep space, when in reality, they are still on Earth, in a simulated spaceship, in an science lab of sorts.
Ascension was a good concept, but there were a number of flaws in this mini-series which did leave it somewhat disappointing.
Verdict: Deep Space None
My Rating: 5 out of 10
