As you may remember, I got to go to the premiere of EXTANT a few weeks ago – the new sci-fi thriller from the States starring Halle Berry.
As well as writing a review for MostlyFilm.com, it inspired me to blog about what series to download for a back-to-back watch-a-thon on a long-haul flight. Other must-see shows included House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black, The Honourable Woman and The 100. Here’s the full post that I wrote for Thomson’s travel blog…
Extant UK Premiere
Well, you don’t do that every week – pop to BAFTA, meet a robot and watch a premiere. But that’s precisely what I did…
Extant – Canapes and Cocktails
One of my friends is the editor at Mostlyfilm.com – a cool blog about, yes you’ve guessed it, films. Well, films and telly. Anyway, she asked me if I’d write a review of EXTANT, the new sci-fi tele-series starring Halle Berry that aired this evning on Amazon Prime Instant Video.
Being a) a writer by trade and b) a card-carrying science fiction geek, I jumped at the offer with both hands. And so, on Tuesday night, I rocked up at BAFTA in central London for an exclusive press screening.
Before I settled down in the stall for the showing, I got to pose for a selfie with a robot. Yes, a robot. Reason being, EXTANT’s storyline includes a sub-plot about androids with artificial intelligence.
They’re taking over!
Anyhow, here’s what I thought about EXTANT. Oh, and thanks again to the lovely folk at Mostlyfilm.com – much appreciated.
