Its KEY

The interest in EXTANT

Please tell me that you met Ethan? He’s Molly and John Woods AI son. Moreover that, have you seen the new series EXTANT that CBS premiered Wednesday, July 9th? Well, you can take my word for it, they are on some 6TH DAY stuff here; they are on some GRAVITY parallel (in character career) stuff here — and I like it.

This television series plays out a like a movie and Halle is perfect for the part. She plays Molly an astronaut who after returning from a 1-year solo mission in space is told by her doctor that she is pregnant. Apparently prior to the last mission Molly was suffering from infertility, thus encouraging the demand for the AI son her genius scientist husband co-created and programmed. This show has all of the ingredients of a good SCIFI show and I’m so glad it is born, there’s so much mystique in the storyline. I’m watching it on DVR as I type. You have no idea how glad I am to have this show in the line up. Are you watching? CBS is looking like more than a YOUNG and The RESTLESS type-of-situation right now. They can have my days and my nights if they keep pumping out stuff like this, at least until I figure out how Molly got pregnant on that solo mission?

Are you watching?
Extant - MOLLY

What about ETHAN, you ask? Good question. I’ve got all kinds of questions about his programming. Near the end of the show, he started tripping. What was with all the “NO’s” he was giving Molly, all because he dropped his ice cream cone and wanted a new one? Never mind the fact that Molly offered him hers.  What was with Ethan running off into the forest? And why did he feel the need to stop at the dead bird altar to tell Molly, “I found it this way“? Was that a “programmed response”, and if so, to what? Surely his program is not prompted to respond, “I found it this way,” after taking random and brisk runs. What sense would that make? Well, I’ve got the DVR set for next Wednesday because I’ve got way too many questions.

AI is progressing along well, therefore, I’d like not to think
that much like dinosaurs, humans are on the chop block of ‘extinct.’

However, in its early show stages, I think the writers may be leading us there,
shock tv may be dead – but human extinction is new reason to prep with care.

AI will not replace us. We are the programmers of the heart.
How could we let this happen if there was ever any chance, from the start?

EXTANT is just getting started. The first broadcast aired this week,

Kudos to the shows creators; the concept is reel sweet,
and alas our Hump Day heaps will be blessed with more network treats.

Watch EXTANT on CBS, Wednesday nights 9/8
