My wife loved it. In my opinion it was medicore. Come on. Real time and private phone calls from space to earth? Okay. A crew that has been training together for two years for this great mission (pretty sure under some psychiatric supervision), but at the very beginning it is clear that the russian-chinese coalition doesn't trust the captain and are close to mutiny? Motocrossing daughter suffers an accident! Who could have foreseen this! The captain is crying again? Recovered dad returns work to save her wife in space? Drilling through the hull? After measuring it with a roll tape? Collecting ice crystals in a sack? Boyfriend leaves the house through the window, the press waiting outside on the great morning of the landing - yet no one cares? Stop overthinking and it will be enjoyable. My unforeseeable predictions for season 2: First sex on Mars! Maybe even the first baby on Mars! Guess what: that would be - the first Martian! No life-saving surgery yet so: First surgery on Mars! First heroic death on Mars! First a sandstorm and/or asteroid impact survival on Mars! And I bet, the water purifier is going to break down again on Mars!
