  • Interesting 2-hour documentary ruined by 4 hours of terrible melodrama
    January 3, 2017
    I persevered through the entire first episode, hoping that the "drama" would get better or (preferably) just go away, but alas that was not to be.
    Five minutes into episode two I simply couldn't take it any more and started to hit fast forward through any scripted bits. Luckily, it turns out that the weird mix of documentary and (really) bad sci-fi follows a regular pattern, so I learnt to skip to the next documentary section without having to endure any more of the ridiculous plot, terrible pacing or bad acting that had ruined the first episode for me.
    My advice would be to wait for someone to upload a "Mars - the 2016- bits" edit somewhere and watch that instead.
