Far Horizons s01e06 – Dark Encounters — 5 Comments

  1. The Byron Chronicles were a magnificent fantasy opera on the widest scale imaginable – creation itself being destroyed one (twice?) … big stuff and glorious with it. I’d love it if this series kept itself a little smaller in scope and focused on the survival of the crew and their journey home. Also, and I’m sorry to say this, but the living dead has become an over used cliche. Unless a new spin could be put on it this will become dull and that would be a crime given the quality of the production and the voice actors.

  2. Really enjoy this so far.

    The living dead already seems to have a different spin. Obviously there is some controlling force.

    The only weakness is that the scientists seem a bit thick.

    Exposure to a possible biological threat and they don’t seem to be taking any precautions. Especially as one has been bitten by an alien species, that is an animated corpse and hasn’t got it checked out, even when starting to feel ill. And the eradication of every planets population would indicate the ‘disease’ is wildly contagious.

    That said, I’m eagerly waiting for the next episode.

  3. Comon.. when can we expect season 2? I’ll pay for it.. I hope this living dead is some wicked entity from another universe which found its way to this universe via these gates.

  4. I know it’s been almost 9 years since the last episode, but is there any chance of another episode? Is the Art Bell ever going to fly again?
