Tricia Helfer's 2014 Scifi Delight
Verified purchase
Fun scifi of people stuck in the 50s inside a massive rocket to the stars. As always Tricia Helfer is amazing. Only disappointment is series did not run much, much longer.

Well-written and well-acted. The major plot twist (not at all expected) comes early, but the miniseries continues to hold ones attention until the end.
Such a shame that we won't be getting the sequel.¸

I really love this!
Verified purchase
Arrived early and in mint condition. I love the story - Milgram meets time warp.

Excellent premise, story line, and acting

... into a series for at least a second season like they did with the remake of Battle Star Galactica
Verified purchase
I do wish the SyFi channel would have continued to develop the show into a series for at least a
second season like they did with the remake of Battle Star Galactica. Too bad some of the
programming directors have no vision of a mini series potential.

Interesting plot and plot twist.

Saw the miniseries on TV. . . Interesting plot and plot twist. . . It keeps you guessing all the way till the end. Tricia Helfer being in it was an added bonus.

Destination Void Redux
Verified purchase
Excellent scifi which is a reimagining of Herbert's Destination Void theme. Unfortunately too short!
