Ascension, Season 1HDTV-MA

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


In 1963, the U.S. government launched a covert space mission sending hundreds of men, women and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension to populate a new world. Nearly 50 years into the journey, as they approach the point of no return, a mysterious murder of a young woman causes the ship’s population to question the true nature of their mission.

Ascensiolon 5

I just watched the preview. Am I the only one who thinks this looks like nothing more than Babylon 5 set in the 1960s/today? "It's our last best hope for peace!" - B5..."Mankind's Last Hope" - Ascension. I'll watch it, but I don't think it's going to be anything unique.

Very Hopeful About This Series

I'm very hopeful about this new series based on the behind the scenes previews provided online and on iTunes. It seems that the Sy-Fy channel has at long last returned to their roots of producing science fiction content. I'm very happy that a sci-fi series is once again set onboard a starship. However, I'm sure that this show will be a character driven alternative historical drama. It's really great to see this drama set out beyond the stars.
This 3 part miniseries is basically a multipart pilot for a continuing weekly drama. So, I fully intent to support this project by purchasing this series. The production design looks amazing and the produces seem to have assembled a diverse and talented cast of actors.
I highly recommend purchasing this series based on the production previews that I've seen online and early reviews on social media from critics who've watched advanced copies. My anticipation is growing and this series looks to have great potential. So, if you a fan of Sci-Fi or just good TV I think that this show is worth giving a chance.

8 bucks for a preview?

My fault for not reading the fine print, but I should have to assume that paid content is or is not a commercial.
