We are currently watching this on our Saturday Movie Night. It's a bit tricky yo find a movie that appeals to kids aged 14 and 12, but is also appropriate for an 8 year old (and that my husband and I can injoy as well), but so far (3 episodes watched) this fits the bill. It's not big on action but it is slick and easy to watch, with charismatic actors a pleasing pace, and the end-of-the-world theme isn't overdone. As a science teacher I really like that science/STEM is prominent in the episodes: my oldest kid often commented about Newton's Laws and things like constant velocity (he just went over this in his science class). There is a nasty torture scene in episode 3 that upset our 8 year old a little, but the violence is suggested more than actually shown, and we do see characters drinking beer and jumping into bed together right at their first meeting, which might not sit well with every family's value system, but the general message is hopeful and that resourceful humans can find solutions to problems.
