I would always wanted to remember seeing Halle Berry in movies rather on TV and that is why when I first heard of EXTANT‘s first season and she’s starring on a lead role, I kinda felt skeptical about that.
I then wonder if there will be a TV series that will make Halle such a fine role perfect for the little screen.
Every time I kept hearing of EXTANT, a futuristic thriller about a female astronaut Molly Woods, I was curious but not enough for me to have courage to see its episodes.
Fast forward to Season 2. I was invited to see the special preview for the season opener. I was still catching thoughts of what kind of Halle will I be seeing in EXTANT.
EXTANT Season 2 episode 1 jumps from where season 1 left behind. Halle’s character Molly vividly recurred what had happened 6 months earlier. Her adopted son Ethan, a humanoid, is now in the hands of Julie after he was seen as a threat to humanity. Molly’s husband is dead and their alien ‘offspring’ was thought to have been dead as well.
6 months to the future, Halle is now in the care of a rehabilitation center for people with mental illnesses.
A series of killings investigated by a cop, JD Richter (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan of Grey’s Anatomy and Supernatural) prompted Molly to seek release out of the rehabilitation because she believes that she knew what or who started the killings.
In a nutshell, if things are going to be like the first episode of season 2, EXTANT wont be difficult to follow. For first time viewer like me, showing the background story from season 1 helped me a lot to understand what EXTANT is all about and where it’s headed to.
Halle has aged but still gorgeous. She’s still one of the many beautiful faces in Hollywood and still has the kickass figure. Halle is also the executive producer of this season of the show, along with Steven Spielberg.
I have no regrets not watching Extant’s first season. But now that I’ve seen it, it’s the best time to follow EXTANT season 2.
