Let's start by saying how disappointing it is that there are not more people watching Extant, reading about it and engaging in discussions.
We live in a world where if we are not given something absolutely amazing within the first hour of a new series, we want to give up. The payoff has to be quick and fast or we'll move on to the next big thing, which will likely also last a short time.
Each week the mystery has grown and in Extant Season 1 Episode 5 things have hit the pinnacle of freakiness. With such a big mind-frak occurring, you'd think we'd be left without answers. You'd be wrong.
