    Despite the schlocky space adventure, the series just might hook you because of its flawed protagonists.

    The setting is contained but this cast is huge, and Watkins’ scripts don’t do enough to make anyone stand out for anything other than surface-level reasons.

    Despite its narrative bloat and unrelenting violence, Origin fails to move the story forward in any genuinely exhilarating way, instead plodding through tedious character flashbacks that throttle the flow of the present-day action. ... Odiously derivative.

    A good TV series that mix scifi and mostly horror. A bit of drama coming from reality tv. I love the scifi aspect and horror. What i didn'tA good TV series that mix scifi and mostly horror. A bit of drama coming from reality tv. I love the scifi aspect and horror. What i didn't like is how stupid some characters are acting in given situations, like they are plot driven. I like the backstories except for Katie which was a real drag. The last episode was delicious. The quality of the visuals and the sounds were amazing. I give it a 75%. Not all the episodes were good but the acting was really solid and kept everything together. Expand

Yes, you can skip over most of the "Lost" style backstory flashbacks, because most really didn't add anything to the present narrative. Yes, this series probably isn't anything you haven't seen before. However, its very watchable and you will not guess who has the parasite. Overall, entertaining and worthy of a second series. Expand

    Slow, cliche and despite reasonably good actor play, the plot is full of the cheapest tricks in the book.
    I really wanted to give it a chance

    I really wanted to give it a chance but ended up waiting for the forth episode to end in anticipation of searching for another show.
