Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on July 11, 2014

extantExtant is CBS’s summer science fiction drama, starring Halle Berry as an astronaut who gets pregnant in space by the ghost/alien doppleganger/something of her dead husband. Also, her still alive new husband has built a robot kid who they are raising together, and the robot kid might lead a future robot uprising. I was hoping that by the end of the pilot, the two main plot threads, the alien/ghost pregnancy and the robot kid, might connect in some way, but nope.

That disconnect bugged the crap out of me, so I don’t anticipate watching further. Also the entire thing where the AI kid could turn out to be evil, I don’t have much interest in that. I will say that Halle Berry looks great for a 47 year old, but that’s about all the positive I took away from it.
