The First online"The First" is a series that tells about the still imperfect, but planned flight of a man to Mars. The plot focuses on a real drama that unfolds around a man preparing to travel to a distant planet in a manned spaceship. The plot of the project will tell the audience about the preparation of the pioneer, about his experiences, relationships with loved ones and feelings when he first enters an alien planet. Mars will be much closer than it might seem. The First is a bold look into the future, which predicts successful development in the direction of cosmology for the scientific community.
The series was noticed recently, and all hands did not reach! At first it seemed a banal story about how cool the Americans are, what they launch ships into space and that they are the first in everything, blah blah blah and so on! But from the very first episode, my opinion changed! It is immediately clear from the technology that we are in the near future! But there are no transcendental unearthly technologies here, which made me happy! Therefore, this is not just a story about space exploration and the long-awaited flight of man to Mars, the meeting of extraterrestrial civilizations and friendship or war with them! Here is the story of people who go towards their goal, face difficulties, fears and other problems! About how difficult it is sometimes, even among people who are close and who understand you, to achieve goals without harming them, not abandoning them and preserving yourself! I definitely recommend to all lovers of space, touching and motivating stories! I watched the series in one breath in a sitting!
The theme of space has always been interesting for the viewer. It is always a difficult choice for a person: to leave everything as it is in the usual conditions for oneself or to move forward. After walking the dog, one of the first problems the man faced was a tap in the kitchen, which had no water. Based on the circumstances, the problem was solved promptly. Suggests that there will be many interesting moments in the series. The main thing is that the series does not tie the storyline to religion. The actors are selected competently, each of them has a unique set of personal qualities and powerful charisma. The series also shows the superstition of people, its significance and the habit of tradition, when the crew went aboard the scene with the coin cannot be missed. It seems how far technology has advanced, but we still adhere to certain rituals. When people saw off those flying away at the launch site, in the eyes of the people there was hope for the future, for something new, unexplored, bright, which would give rise to something new. There is a place for jokes in the series, which is cute in my opinion and thinns the situation. In the first 15 minutes of viewing, it seems that the series is good! I will continue to watch. Maybe I'll notice something useful for myself. The way the rocket fell apart was epic. Look what was the cause of the disaster and how it will end.
The case when you see the title and the cover, and understand that there will be something useful, intuitively. NOT a fantastic fantasy, but quite a real development of events in the near future. The cast pleases - this immediately sets you up for the fact that the series will not be a trivial or implausible parody of a film about space flights. After the first episode, it seems that events are developing too quickly, but then everything falls into place. It seems that you know what will happen next - but this feeling is deceiving. I am glad that another series about space has appeared, which is interesting and not boring to watch, there is no feeling that he himself would have filmed better, or that the scriptwriter had to at least finish the courses first. Therefore - to look, to look unambiguously.
There is no action or shootout in this series. But the future described in it is filled with that striving forward, which propels real astronauts and researchers. The series shows a long and difficult journey, its very first step, which takes place on earth, not only through the creation of technology, preparation for launch, but in the heads and hearts of people. Much in the film is devoted to relationships, not only of the future conquerors of Mars, but also of their relatives, those who remain on earth, the opinion of politicians, tycoons, ordinary people and many others. The way people look for themselves in difficult conditions of psychological pressure, tragedies, disputes and much more gives rise to the feeling that the viewer can get something that goes beyond the everyday. Of course, there are many simplifications in it, but the desire that should inspire people to move forward is the most important thing. The series itself is more of a drama, from fiction in it - only the plot of the flight to Mars itself, which in reality may relatively soon cease to be fiction. The series describes the near future - automated taxis, augmented reality glasses, a bunch of elements that are no longer fantasy for us, but which have not yet become a ubiquitous reality, which creates a thread with the world that surrounds the viewer. The wonderful cast only adds to the pleasure of watching the film ... which, however, personally, for me is not so expressive - no, you feel the tragedy, problems and much more, but the series is a little stretched. Still not quite boring, but the problem is that the result is known, the problems are being solved, the necessary and appropriate pathos in the right places creates the right feeling ... But you don't feel the feeling of empathy for the characters that you want from a series of such content. And this is probably the result of a little strange cutting of transitions between characters, some melodramatic twists ... And also the fact that even in the most tense moments the heroes lack tension, sometimes they feel that they are tired of this, rather than they are angry or worried. And just because of this, I would give the series 6 out of 10. Otherwise, this is a very good piece of production drama.
