Netflix Another life continued.

‘But Fortunately’ Should not be in a writers tool box.

But Fortunately!

AHHH!  This story could be so much better.   Netflix, hire a consultant from NASA, would you?  Hire Michelle Thaller, she could assist you in making this a little more believable.

After yesterday, I wrote about the miserable failure of this series and then I slept on it.  Things like this trouble me.  Much like working for someone else, I will give no less than my best, and I expect my employees to do the same.

Today I watched a few more episodes during my lunch and dinner break.

I must say that they seriously need to hire a technical advisor, as anyone with a brain in their heads would know better than to do the stupid shit that they do.  Not only are there mistakes like this but also while they are supposed to be on the other ship, the camera clearly pans past stuff that is from the ship she is on.

Oh, we have a contagion, we must all step into the airlock and be jettisoned into space.

Nevertheless, fortunately, we discover a cure at the very last second.

However, unfortunately, there is not a source of gamma radiation strong enough on this star.

But, Fortunately, there is Gamma radiation on another star, so we are all saved but…We are now all sterile.  Oh no!

We are all going to die because we are drinking recycled urine and the food is running out, but fortunately, there is a moon in the goldilocks zone, which has all the stuff of life.

Oh isn’t this flower pretty let me inhale its alien pollen and sit back and chat with my friend.

Oh, let’s suck up thousands of gallons of alien water and just fill up our water supplies on the ship, which makes perfect sense.

I do have an observation that I cannot resist sharing.  Who in their right mind designed the engineering area to look like some steampunk submarine engine room complete with gauges from the fifties?  Oh and with grease.  They are using tools that would actually fit the era of the submarine.  Is that the best you can do?

The little girl is still adorable, the witchy boss is hateful, and that reporter is just…hmmmm.

The scene in the bar playing trivia did not fit anywhere.   The acting was sophomoric at best. Just possibly, you should consider borrowing some flying sharks.

Ok, I need to say something nice.  It is so hard….

I am glad the bitch died.  She needed to die a horrible death saving the mission and true to the end, she wants the credit for doing so. Much like the wicked witch of the west she just melted….

Please don’t misunderstand that I am glad the character died, she was a bitch.  I loved the actress and I hope they bring her back.

The writers are ‘arcing the characters,’ which I noticed…

The person with the alien bug in his head will probably be the next Dr. Smith, and they should leave his ass on a planet…I digress.

Here is the truth of it.  There is barely just enough to entice me to watch episode seven at a future date.  This is not the kind of thing that I would binge-watch.  If my hands are busy feeding my face, I will watch something.

Note to writers…But Fortunately should not be in your writing. Find other ways to craft your story, where there is not magic beans and happenstance to save their assess.  Have them act, as professionals would be a good start.   You can still have the drama but gees…if this is what future humanity sends into space, we are screwed and will go the way of the T-Rex.

That is my official post on this series…Lol

If you want a good read my novel Earth’s Tipping point is on KU.  It is a shame as it only puts money in Bezos’s pockets but, it is still a good read.

Cheers -TW
