Caught the second hour last night. It was good—not first-season House good, but fun. My two favorite characters are Lt. Scott and Robert Carlyle’s Scientist of Questionable Morals. Still making up my mind about Eli, the video-game whiz who won the golden ticket: the character screams “fan service,” but he hasn’t actually gotten on my nerves yet, and he’s got some good dialogue.
My one nitpick with the pilot’s plot is that they seemed to be conflating two very different life-support problems: CO2 build-up, and venting atmosphere into space. Maybe I missed this, but was there any explanation for why, if the ship is leaking, it didn’t run out of air long before our protagonists arrived?
