    TV Nightflyers Discussion/Speculation/SPOILERS

    t just saw the first ep of nightflyers on syfy, and I only have two words for it, EVENT HORIZON, it looks like a ripoff of event horizon, or I guess you can call it an extension, what ever, it is mostly predictable, all in all, guess you can say it is so so,all and all I give it a 4

    That is both a helpful and not helpful review of the show.

    I see there are already three episodes out...should I watch them?

    I watched one episode for a few minutes then decided to skip this show after hearing the F-bomb.

    eh...it depends, I think you should give it a try, at least the first three, I am going to give it one more try to see if it gets any better, but I don't have high hopes.

    I'll wait until they are done.

    Pscard feels pretty strongly about offensive language; in most cases it's not necessary. I tend to agree with him, but I don't feel as strongly about it as he does.

    I mean let's be honest...In certain situations people will be swearing left and right. Do I want them to go overboard? No. Because that leads to bad writing.

    But having cop shows or other settings with people under high-stress? Yeah not even having people say "Gosh darnit!" is distracting.

    I agree, in some situations it's realistic to have people swearing on the screen, or would be unrealistic if they weren't.

    But everyone has the right to decide what they are comfortable with, and I'm not gonna criticize anyone for their choice.

    Spoilers you been warned.


    I enjoy this, all through it was predictable in some respect, it wasn't in other respects, I didn't see the captain being a android and then turning out to be a genetically engineer freak that can only survive in a special container . To me I didn't get the Event Horizon feeling, that film creep me out and this never creep me out.

    I did find some things strange, the crew being utterly freak out by Thale and keeping lock up and under heavy guard but just because of the say so of the captain they suddenly letting him wonder around the ship and the crew trust him enough to use him to provide entertainment, Russian Roulette! I think this show had some awesome ideas on what a telepath could do, rather than just the modane mind reading. Through their was no follow up on the fact that Thale ability appears to be somewhat addictive for the crew.

    Are the volcron go guys or bad guys, where did that mold come from, what other secrets does the nightflyer holds, it seem to have been one giant play thing for Cynthia, I got a feeling it holds many many more secrets that not even Captain Eris knows about. What exactly wrong on earth, viruses are mention but not specifics.

    Biggest disappointment was perhaps the fact that we didn't really get to learn much about the rescue of the crew. Nor did I entire understand why Agatha sent the message to Earth that she did, warning them to stay away from the Nightflyer.

    I hope we get a season 2 at some point, plenty of loose ends to tie up.
