weaver of the unseen

Sending out a bunch of sketchy amateurs to save, or represent, humanity doesn't work for me. One of them isn't even trained?
It reminds me of Danny Boyle's Sunshine, and that was much better than this. It feels incredibly rushed.
Well, yeah, the series needs an intelligent watcher, because there is not one moment where it tells you the whole picture. Everything is drip fed as it has been thought. What they could do better is linking the scenes, but overall I have no real complains about the crew. I get why they were chosen and they show personality in the situations, where you could use formally trained silent professionals.
That however wouldn't make the drama as it is intertwined into the plot. Things happens and they have reasons. Those reasons becomes more complex plot points, when they get dropped in. What is that you would expect from the crew that is going to save humanity? Stoic professionalism instead the personalities they've gathered into the crew?
None of them have really shown bad acting, and I loved the scene in the alien moon, where the girls were confessing about their true feelings in the 'magical forest.' The alien plot has advanced considerably towards the end, and it seems as if it's a truly plausible scenario.
