Like several of the self-contained dramas in this series, tonight’s tale looks amazing. The sets, costumes and art direction are gorgeously atmospheric, conjuring an image of the world in 2520 that is a visual feast (a subterranean sex club is especially memorable).
If only the same care had been lavished on the scripts. Essie Davis and Bryan Cranston are perfectly fine as a high official and a military commander in a loveless marriage that takes a strange turn, but the dialogue is painfully generic (“What you’re saying is tantamount to treason!” etc) and there’s a stilted coldness to everything that makes it hard to get emotionally involved.
An official in a loveless marriage sent to harvest a precious resource from another planet survives an attack by aliens and returns home a changed man. At first his wife is happy by his newfound passion for her and life in general, but begins to suspect he has been replaced by a different man. Starring Bryan Cranston and Essie Davis.
