There's no character I particularly liked, no relationship that seems particularly interesting and no mystery embedded in the pilot to which I'd like to get any answers.
Predictable sci-fi series for the younger set has violence.
The foundations of this story are very much set in a world that has been heavily influenced by Star Trek, mix this with the YA audience it begs to attract and you've got a rather ropey version of the series Shadow Hunters for the intergalactic age.
I watch a lot of TV pilots for work-including ones for shows that never make it to air-and Pandora's is quite possibly one of the worst I've seen in years.
Pandora feels like a show that should be binged instead of watched week to week... it just feels like a show that's not worth the time investment of watching it in weekly installments.
Doesn't seem to realize or care which of its scattered pieces should be its most important, stumbling around draped in all the external trappings of the type of show it wants to be when it grows up, like a little kid playing a haphazard game of dress-up.
Audience Reviews for Pandora: Season 1
6d agoWatching season 2 is actually physically painful - I'm absolutely stupefied that a show could be made this bad? - to think Dark Matter was canned & SyFy made this is utterly bemusing. I saw a comment from someone who said "if they were in a coma, they'd wake up to turn this off" and I think that just about sums it up - unbelievably bad ..& I love syfy - whoever makes the decisions at SyFy should hang their head in shame
Jan 04, 2021Shows great promise. Enjoying so far.
Dec 23, 2020Lame....Characters are weak and lifeless, plot is predictable and cliché, sets are bad as in a sci-fi B series of the 70's... even the alarms sound are not credible... Casting is at best lamentable
Dec 17, 2020It always was unpredictable and made characters' backgrounds that comes through in the second season. Awesome!
Dec 05, 2020Tbh, I don't care what people think of this show. Pandora is truly incredible and I truly love watching it. I hope the series keeps going because there is a lot going for it.
Dec 02, 2020This series is like if Star Trek and Star Gate had a child.. First, calling a planet Nimbus 4 is a clear reference to Nimbus 3 in Star Trek and come on "ancients", "gate keepers", "portals which can take you anywhere"? Also "the 5 species" out of which one is a master of disguise and it is extremely peaceful and lives in harmony with nature? Also is it just me or it is strange how they were taking about a "FTL ship", but they could travel anywhere in an instance? Look, FTL is subspace manipulation, or "folding the space around you", but it isn't teleportation... I understand that pandorans have the superpower to create portals, but how can those pesky little humans do it so easily? This series is good if you want time to pass, but it ain't anything special about it..
Nov 24, 2020A really very poor attempt at trying to jump on the star streck coat tails. There are too many blatant rip offs from the star trek franchise. Whats makes it worse is that they don't even execute any of it and good way. Poor writing, awkward casting, nothing original. The ages of the students is unclear. There's clash between futuristic design sets in one scene then next scene looks contemporary times. Its executed poorly making the contrast distracting. The sad bit is that there are plenty of space exploration shows that took inspiration from star trek but still produced content original enough to stand on its own. This show tried too hard and put resources on the wrong things. I was looking foward to this show because it was coming off like what if star trek had a spin off series that focused on star fleet cadet training. Its a huge part of the series that many fans are interested in. And i think it would totally be possible to make a show exploring "star fleet" training but not necessarily be part of star trek franchise. Couldn't get past first two episodes l. Do not recommend.
Nov 03, 2020Wtf was this given a 2nd season....
Oct 22, 2020this show is just awful.
Oct 20, 2020I am a grandmother who started watching the WB, then CW, with my grownup daughters a couple of decades ago. We call all their programs "Beautiful People Having Adventures." At my age, I tend to lose track of plots and characters, but my kids do better. Most of them are fun or interesting; all of them have very earnest and beautiful actors doing stuff that is diverting. Pandora is struggling with the diverting and interesting part right now. But it may grow on me, anyway. Never underestimate the loyalty of a CW audience, or the appeal of earnest and beautiful people having adventures.
