“Extant” shows potential, despite mashing up a lot of sci-fi premises
"It’s way too soon to say whether this jumble works,” says James Poniewozik of the Halle Berry series, "but it’s promising that Extant‘s premiere seems confident enough to play it cool and mysterious rather than hammer us with holy-crap moments. Surprisingly for a TV vehicle for an Oscar winner, the pilot doesn’t give Berry a string of showy, actorly moments. Her performance is reserved, bordering on seeming a little shell-shocked, as Molly works on getting her Earth-legs back under her; the show’s direction is quiet and composed.” PLUS: The pilot is a thing of real beauty, "Extant” is like a low-budget, low-ambition "Gravity,” the previews are more thrilling than the pilot, it’s compelling, cerebral and unusually heavy for a summer show, Steven Spielberg says “Extant” was always the title, and Halle Berry was drawn to the more “E.T.-ish” nature of “Extant."
