This was not a good show.

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS

If you want to watch a bunch of annoying children and a cultist handle some low stakes adventures on a space station, feel free. There are two absolutely intolerable social media influencers, a kid who's also some kind of secret agent, a bunch of useless adults...and a comet. Just wait until you find out about that!

The plot, such as it is, involves throwing random situations up in the air and hoping they land. There's no sense of real danger and everything is played out as comedy. I'll give the writing credit for addressing realistic situations that ...

Tl;Dr:

"The Orbital Children" is a high-stakes adventure among the stars. A refreshing take on the disaster movie, TOC regularly introduces well-crafted conflicts that'll be sure to impress avid sci-fi fans. A compelling series of ethical dilemmas accompany our cast's survival story, which ramps up into a jaw-dropping climax of ear-grinningly epic proportions. TOC is occasionally hampered by unnatural patches of comedy and drops in pacing, but brilliant worldbuilding makes this series an immersive binge. 8/10~

Mixed Feelings
I’ve been officially ordered to write something about this film, and in the process of doing so, have somehow mustered up enough willpower to slap together my scattered, disjointed thoughts into something vaguely coherent but still not all the way purposeful as a legitimate review of this film. Which, if I’m being honest, is how all reviews should be. You don’t need someone to tell you if a show is worth watching. It’s actually possible to make those observations yourself. And I apologise if that sounds abrasive, but I think some of you could stand to be a little more staunch in your opinions on ...
