Cul de Sac, The 6

And lo we come to the final culmination that wraps up everything in an amazing... that was never going to happen, was it?

What do we get? More padding really. We spend half the episode on something that doesn't matter, and then spend the second half on summarising what should have been more of the series. And then we hit the final twist which makes no sense what so ever. You'd have thought someone would have spotted that earlier. And many open questions... are left open.

So we definitely end on a possibility for a second season, although considering how long it took to get there, and the terrible plotting so far, I'm not going to hold my breath that we get one.

At the end of all this, I would like to say that I am extremely down on the story... but not the rest of the aspects of this. Acting is fine, given these are child actors, and there are nice shots of areas around Auckland... but this is so whelmed by the context of this series.

New Zealand has produced far better sci-fi than this.
