Enjoyable SciFi .

The acting is sub-par and the sets they created are boring and lack imagination.

Dont waste your time to this garbage.

It has become totally dull, predictable, & unoriginal.

The plot of what they try to pass off as one takes way too long to get going each week,Seems to be relying on the usual cliches and tropes,i've been using it has back ground noise while i game.

Constantly boring .

Using friends who can't act, no script, locations like classrooms and bars and an etch a sketch for the special effects he managed to sell it to the CW.

It reminds me of Stargate sg-1 simply because of how campy but enjoyable it is.

There's some character development, some intriguing mysteries, and some very good looking actors and actresses.

Waste of time.

Don't waste your time.

Much of what happens in the first two episodes doesn't make a ton of sense, and it's not helped by clunky pacing that drags one minute, bogged down in pointless scenes that have nothing to do with anything, then speeds up so abruptly that it threatens narrative whiplash.

Don't waste your time.

As far as SciFi goes, is pretty enjoyable.

What is supposed to be a space sci-fi story is just one big bore and I won't be seeing anymore.

Was a total poor set up for the story and felt uninteresting.

Exciting Future Adventure, Bringing The Fun Back To Sci-Fi .

Giving that the budget MUST be really low the Scifi plot is intriguing.

Old review for first episode (still valid):I can usually put up with the shortcomings of a low budget series, even with a mundane plot, if the the music is compelling.

etc etc meanwhile the undoubtedly empty pizza box is the actual star of the show...

Don't waste your time like the producers have wasted their money.

Despite how it might seem predictable on a surface level (if you know your science fiction), when it actually comes to the plot you are kept on the edge of your seat.

Charaters talk slow, move slow, act slow even in action scenes that are more wooden than blakes 7.

This show has some good ideas and a even a few intriguing mysteries.

Not everything worked compeltely in this first episode, but I really found it super fun and exciting with some great characters which is what I want for summer and can't wait for next week.

Intriguing alternate history .

Don't waste your time like this.

Don't waste your time.

The acting is very forced and the story lines are disjointed and unbelievable even in a Sc fi universe.

Unfortunately, Pandora fails on this too, with disjointed, inappropriate incidental music that made me think I'd left another video playing somewhere.

But the writing, the cast, the acting, the screen play, the music and the extremely low budget special effects (I could make better effects in MS Paint) are making this show a complete and total waste of time, episode after episode.

This show suffers from a fatal impatience to get to the action regardless of how contrived and far-fetched getting there has to be.

Obscene writing, bland acting, boring characters, uninspired story, and a derivative setting; Pandora is devoid of anything interesting.

Every teen angst cliche?

Pandora belongs to that line of work - underachieving is a tender way to describe the show's quality, generic, redundant, simply boring, trash without the fun factor of ueber-trash, another.

Boundless potential, amazing characters & intriguing plot .

It's really a shame that an intriguing premise is ruined by such awful and unrealistic storytelling.

The story is just weak, senseless, annoying, tiring, boring, unintelligent and predictable.

TV companies should be able to grab you on the first episode, but I spent the second half on my laptop, it was that boring.

Lazy bored acting?

It's tedious!

However, the casting of our lead may have been a mistake, she is both wooden and uninteresting with an emotional range more indicative of a first year drama student.

After watching 2 episodes, I'm rating this a 5 (a bore) out of 10 and abandoning watching it any further.

A waste of time .

boring, unimaginative and stereotypical.

It's got everything you don't want, cliche laden dialog, awkward character actors, cheesy set designs and plot holes you could steer an oil tanker through.

Intriguing opener, reminded me alittle of Babylon 5 with the mix of different races in a future world.. Though B5 is a masterpiece and one of the very 1st tv series that used an enormous story telling arc to give the stories a chance to play out with depth and many layers as opposed to the usual tv format like star trek at that time, which tended to wrap up each episode neatly in under an hr...

A waste of time!

It fell out of the teen adventure cliche tree and hit every branch on the way down.

All in all, I give it a 4, because mainly I hope that something in this series can be quickly fixed and turn things around, and because I'm bored.

(Cue) Slow hand clapping.

It feels like a made for TV show, similar to how the old Xena, Hercules productions were all relatively lower budget shows, though, they were still worth watching.

It's painfully slow, boring, lacking in just about every way.

The characters felt real and there are enough questions in this first episode that I want to see answered that seem to leave room for many seasons to come.
