Space Thriller

Refreshing space-saga about group of man and women inside giant interstellar generation-ship poisted to reach Proxima Centauri and colonize it. Great show with real unexpected twists and turns. Comprises elements of "Capricorn One" "Game of thrones" and "Battlestar galactica". It is a good and solid starting point for several seasons of TV show.
