Not without its flaws, but then nothing is.
Read through about a dozen reviews before posting this, and there is a lot of really picky hate going on. In a world full of really mediocre TV and film, I really don't understand this.
This is a good show.
Is it going to transcend your understanding of scifi? Depends on your diet so far, and what you expect a dramatisation to do, this is not a documentary, it likely won't blow your mind. However, this series entertained me. Probably as well as a matrix sequel, certainly more than a star trek movie. I would put this way above Cloverfield Paradox, on a par with Into the Badlands, above Star Trek Discovery, and under Westworld.
Great setting and gorgeous cinematography, twisty enough gumshoe plot, believable protagonists, some worthy supporting characters (Chris Connor as Poe certainly stands out), and a decent if predictable conclusion.
Worth 10 hours of your life? I don't feel cheated out of mine.
