Extant: S1 E1

extant s1I watched the first episode of the new Halle Berry CBS television show Extant. The show centers around returning astronaut Berry whose husband Goran Visnjic and AI son feel something is wrong after her year alone in space. She comes home to startling news from her physician Camryn Manheim. And so the plot begins. No spoilers. There’s a Gummer in the mix – Grace. They all look like their mother (Meryl Streep). I’m impressed the story revolves around Berry’s female character. Also, as mentioned strong supporting roles from actors like Manheim and Hiroyuki Sanada make for a great cast. But in the end, I didn’t care about traveling any further with Extant. You can tell it’s a traditional network produced show. No boundary pushing. Safe and sane. 2 out of 5. Next.
