The Johnsons might be Black, but the issues they face affect every person in this increasingly global and culturally interconnected world we live in: how to face racial issues in an increasingly post-racial era.
    Verdict: Watch if you like Modern Family. Will be renewed.

Como toda boa série épica, muito sangue e lutas ao estilo do filme '300', nudez e cenas de sexo, violência e etc... Com uma história bem interessante, mesmo sabendo dês do início que o personagem principal iria morrer, a série te prende e te faz torcer por ele o tempo todo. Não me recordo de ter visto, antes dessa, uma série épica tão boa. Recomendo muito para quem gosta da temática!! Infelizmente possui apenas 3 temporadas. Full Review »

The writing capturesThis is one of the best seasons of a television show I've seen in my life, and I've watched a LOT of TV, of all types. The writing captures the fractured and often chaotic and confusing thing that is the human psyche. Every single performance is incredible, even the kid versions of the children, and that's a huge nod to the casting department as well. Can't wait for season 2. Full Review »

It's like The Sims because of this manipulative scientist that has inherited this super secret project Ascension from his father. It's like Fallout 3 because of the people living inside the Ascension are like the people trapped in the vaults. The people have their own culture but, it is subtly controlled by the scientist. The people inside the Ascension have no idea what's going because they a have been raised to believe that they are in outer space on search for a new planet to inhabit. They have been taught everything they know from television shows from the fifties and books from the library. It's like they are living in North Korea except they don't have a dictator. There's some soap opera type stuff in the story but it doesn't take away from what it's about.There's some sex scene and nudity I had no problem with it. One of the things I notice is how the scientist has given concrete gender roles to the people inside Ascension. Most of the women are escorts or nurses. The men are soldiers or security. There's no racism though but there aren't any gay characters and the scientist explains why. There is a hierarchy and class divide sort of like "A Brave New World" where you have the people of lesser caste being treated differently. So, it's all so similar to "Snowpiercer" because, this "ship" is divided into many different levels. So, basically it's a giant ant farm with humans at some secret location. The conclusion I got from watching the final episode is that the Ascension project is about space travel but space travel through the use of a person's mind. The Star Child. I like when Syfy does shows like this instead shark tornadoes. Full Review »
  5. Outstanding, great show. I only signed up to metacritic after seeing critics off-the-mark reviews. If you like classic kung fu flicks, youOutstanding, great show. I only signed up to metacritic after seeing critics off-the-mark reviews. If you like classic kung fu flicks, you are in for an especially good treat on two superb fight scenes. The second fight scene had me jumping up and rooting for the great action - truly a call-out out to the greatest kung fu scenes. The personalities of the characters and their relationships are explored and challenged. The Khan himself is developed into a complex character in a complex world. The dialogue is really good, nothing like what I read from the critics. I truly appreciate this show. My hat goes off to the producers. The colors and cinematography are nothing short of gorgeous and the set design is epic. The plots of the players drive the story at every turn. This is the show to watch. Enjoy. Full Review »
