After the success of "Under the Dome" last year, CBS is bringing viewers another Sci-Fi themed "event series" for the summer season, "Extant." Created by relative newcomer Mickey Fisher and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, "Extant" finds Halle Berry as Molly, an astronaut who returns to earth after spending a year in space on a solo mission. Before the last journey Molly was diagnosed as infertile, but now, strangely, she finds herself pregnant back on earth. The series draws elements from movies such as "The Astronaut's Wife" and Spielberg's own "A.I.," but the real reason to watch is the Oscar winner's return to TV since appearing in "Their Eyes Were Watching God" in 2005. Plus, can the 13-episode run deliver an ending that actually surprises and satisfies the audience?
