    I am of an older generation and use to a slow burner. However the fuse hasn't even been lit on this one! The writing is mediocre. The way the science and research is treated is laughable. It may pass for young teens/ preadolescence but the series is aimed at older audience. None of the character have any...character!. It is a dull slog which portrays the GALCIT team as blue collarI am of an older generation and use to a slow burner. However the fuse hasn't even been lit on this one! The writing is mediocre. The way the science and research is treated is laughable. It may pass for young teens/ preadolescence but the series is aimed at older audience. None of the character have any...character!. It is a dull slog which portrays the GALCIT team as blue collar underdogs, when they were all from fairly well connected backgrounds, despite some problems with the depression. Tedious and below my threshold for suspension of disbelief yet another example of the artsy community having no real understanding of sciences and so not knowing how to portray them dynamically with depth. Do not waste your time. Expand

    Strange Angel could develop into an engrossing adventure of a man who couldn’t straddle the line between pushing the mind to its limits and pushing beyond its breaking point, but it’s too content early on to dwell on the mundane instead of truly embrace the strange.

    Reynor’s lead performance is captivatingly cocky and sincere, Friend is a wacko hoot, and Lowery’s handling of these period-piece proceedings is so entrancing--full of ominous transitional fades and gorgeously illuminated nighttime landscapes and interior tableaus--that it’s easy to forgive the show its maiden, and minor, dramatic missteps. ... It’s not its predetermined destination that makes the show so compelling; it’s the insane path it’ll take to get there.

    The upside of such a leisurely arc is that it allows for conversations into which exposition is less obviously inserted, and scenes have time to wander before getting to a point. The downside is that, spread across so many hours, the action tends to run in circles over the same ground.
