This is my first ever post on anything, anywhere ever!!! So Wish me Luck. Extinct features some quite interesting sci-fi themes and ideas in this new series such as the possible futre uses of nanotechnology, time-travel and AI to mention a few. Set in a dystopian future 400 yrs hence, it focuses on the trials,tribulations and conundrums that a nano-regenerated group of humans face to restart society in a desolate and barren world. The regenerated humans have also to contend with unknown alien parasites and the presence of a powerful, but unknown alien power/force. For a lowish budget series the program has some passable SFX and the level of acting (especially Victoria Atkin and Chad Michael Collins who looks like a younger Denis Quaid), is quite good generally, as are the reasonable smattering of action scenes, though it's not quite Star Wars. All in all, I feel that as a program that it is quite entertaining and worth viewing. I'd really like to see what other people think. Worth a discussion at least. I think? PS: (There are eight episodes available online as of Oct 1st, on certain websites, so if you can find them you can have a little bit of binge as I did....... if you want too). Looking forward to all comments. :)
