Just finished and hmmmmmm. Didn't give me the Dexter wow. Can't really find the right words to describe it but empty & ungrounded spring to mind. We didn't get to see them blast off, don't know where they came from, didn't hear much (if anything) about the planet they're heading towards. Since it's set in a spaceship that they can't leave, it should have an intense claustrophobic feel about it, but to me it felt completely the opposite, nothingness. <- finding me words isn't going so well.

The ending seemed to suggest this is a Matrix within a Matrix type thing and they're really back on Earth and taking part in a (very) elaborate reality show.. But going by the success or rather non-success of reality shows this might not be such a good thing.

If it comes back I'll give it a couple more eps though, just in case this was a Heros ep1 type of thing - ep1 but ep2

After reading the summary I was afraid it's gonna feel like yet another TNG Holodeck episode. Fortunately it's way better than Star Trek. The overall concept is really old, but the reality show twist makes it a bit fresh. I'd love to see more.
Too bad this show is actually too smart to make it into a series on FoX. However, there are some chances of a pick up by Sci-Fi.

I really liked it. I just hope that Coster-Waldau continues to be a major character, but how?
