RE: Mary Kills People – Episode 1

I consider myself a TV, Movie, Video Game, Comic Book and just overall pop-culture junkie. I am of the generation that grew up watching TV programs evolve and change into the great spectacles that they are now.

The last 15 years has seen a shift away from conventional television broadcast companies (NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS) and towards the creative freedom afforded to shows by Netflix, HBO, Showtime and FX. This has resulted in some seriously great television. Mary Kills People is hoping to join that crowd of amazing TV shows that we all tweet about during and after each episode.

Illuminated Chronicles: Ascension

Sammy Younan

Girth Radio Presents…

Over Christmas break I checked out Ascension a 2014 Syfy mini-series on Netflix.

Back in the 60s JFK launched an inter-generational space shuttle…it was going to take 100 years for it to reach its destination: Proxima Centauri. (The show was inspired by the real-life concept of Project Orion which Kennedy ultimately killed). Of course…things don’t go well and it’s all sparked by a murder.

Some of the writing is a bit cheezy, typical tv writing…but there are some fresh moments too. Only lasted 6 episodes then died (don’t ponder the ending too much as Syfy confirmed: “We were very happy with Ascension as an event series, but with so much high profile development in the works, we have decided not to pursue a full series.”).

You can knock it off in a lazy winter weekend.

Here’s the trailer:
