Mars Season 1
1.) Description (Editorial Reviews)
During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring "the Martian" home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney's safe return.

Great show. very original. It was great how the producers mixed real technology concepts in a dramatic story line. The characters appeared realistic, with actual concerns and dreams. I also really enjoyed explanations around the technology, and strategy supporting travel to mars.
A great mix of science and science fiction. There is a lot of real world "what have we done, what are we doing now" documentary footage, but the plot and story takes place in the not so distant future where all we are doing now is enabling a future manned Mission to Mars in the hopes of establishing a permanent colony. The production is so good and the story so exciting it makes we wonder if NASA sponsored the production in the hopes of gaining more public support for more funding so they can make the Mars Colony a reality (and they now have my support!)
Fun, Exciting, and Suspenseful!!! If you are space lover or a SyFy geek, you are going to love this series. National Geographic Channel (NGC) has done a great job making you feel it's 2033 and we are already making our way to Mars. They put real facts within the storyline of a fictional crew making their way to Mars. To compare this series with any other movie or series is ridiculous because there is no other show like this one. NGC has a hit here and is about to make their mark with a series that's competing with hundreds of other shows to get your attention. This show grabs your imagination and doesn't let go. I can't wait to see where things go.
Yes, there are problems that occur and to say that the series is predictable is impossible. NGC is showing everyone that this is what could happen because nothing in life ever goes as planned. Anything/everything could go wrong and to travel thousands of miles away from Earth to think that nothing will happen, then you haven't left your house.
