A note on boingboing drew me to a CreativeCommons SciFi show pitch, called Pioneer One.
(it’s highlighted on this site: http://vodo.net/)
I love the whole concept of an indie, web-diffused series, and the plot behind it is somewhat intriguing.
But they kind of lost me almost right from the start: a near-orbit surveillance program is called “Astrological Survey” onscreen (a little after the 4 min mark).
Which got me thinking, what the eff would an “astrological” survey do? “Whoah, there are too many Pisces in this general area!”
I can understand poor special effects, photography, even poor acting.
But this in inexcusable.
UPDATE: Minor edit after a nit was picked – thanks Ralph!
