Childhood’s End (SyFy)

Syfy finally launched their 3 night mini-series Childhood’s End. Arthur C Clark penned back in 1953.

I’m happy to say, the first 2 hour installment was excellent. The production values are major motion picture good. Diametrically opposite what the SyFy channel is known for. Crap CGI. I’ve not read the book, but hopefully they are staying true to the story, because it is quite engaging. The last 2 minutes will surprise you.

The show has borrowed many visual ideas from current films like Independence Day, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, 2001: A Space Odyssey and others. That’s OK. I look at that as more of an homage than ripoff.

I am very much looking forward to the rest of the series. Syfy is rebroadcasting the episodes prior to the new show. I highly recommend based off of just watching 1/3 of it.

Hopefully this is a new direction for the channel.
