|I really like most of the actors in the show. About half of the main cast is very interesting, too, their characters are well thought out and they have all their own reasoning and motivations. My only problem is the "other half" of the cast. There are some characters in this show that I not simply just "don't like". No, it's worse. I think these characters aren't well acted. Or have been really, really poor picks when it comes to the actors. Latest example? The "holy mother". This woman barely had any screen time but with that face (tiny mouth, zero expressions, blank look, bland way of speaking), and her very holy glasses, and her very holy outfit, she's a praying cliche. So it all evens out as far as characters go. Since I love the story, I can only say that I enjoy the series overall, so far.|
Jammet - I (long time tv-tomer too) have to disagree with you. That was the great Meg Tilly as The Holy Mother. She had previously retired from acting but came back to do this small part and I thought she did a great job portraying her character in a reserved but troubled manner in this ep. Some of the younger actors with minor parts who are friends with Lacy's character I don't think are very good, but overall I'm very much enjoying the show as well. Right now it is the #1 show I'm looking forward to every week. Great writing, great acting, great storylines, and great sci-fi. The best show currently on Syfy without question IMO.
