An import from Britain, apparently, and available on Netflix. Started out promisingly and rapidly deteriorated into bad acting and worse scriptwriting. The worst thing is they stole my idea for the novel I was going to write in retirement. Now I'll just have to do it over and make it into decent literature. The one interesting item is the evangelical planted among the secular colonists and gaining power over them. They cast him as an American of course.

It got worse, with a vague "force" that was apparently the non-physical leftovers of a former population of hominids doing nasty things to the people because it resented them. Then the evangelical lot arrived in a spaceship and send down a lander to support the revolution and that's where it ended. My version was going to be much better and there would be no spiritual nonsense in it.
