From Bridget Liszewski of The TV Junkies:

Link: Anne with an E’s Amybeth McNulty previews a milestone year for Anne
“I started this role when I was 14 and had no idea what I was doing. Anne and I have grown up alongside each other now, and I feel like I really have gotten to know her. I feel like I know what I’m doing and have the right to say to the director an idea I have. It’s really nice because I have more trust in myself as an actor.” Continue reading.

“It’s an incredible experience for Anne, and she learns so much in a short time just from being introduced to [Ka’kwet’s] community. It’s eye-opening for Anne, but also for Matthew and Marilla. They learn over time — and it’s a slow development — that the Mi’kmaq are just humans. It was the same with Bash last season.” Continue reading.

“It’s such a complicated time, and it’s been an interesting challenge to go back there in my imagination. I’ve been writing the character of Anne for so long in a certain way and with a certain level of maturity.” Continue reading.

Link: Australian actor JayR Tinaco’s role in ‘Another Life’ helped them come out as non-binary

From Samuel Leighton-Dore of SBS Pride:

Link: Australian actor JayR Tinaco’s role in ‘Another Life’ helped them come out as non-binary
“It was so important to the creator, Aaron Martin, that Zayn’s identity was not be a topic of conversation or a story arch. The show takes place 50-70 years in the future, so he just believed that, like any cis-gender person, the LGBTQ+ identities would be free to exist without question or a second thought.” Continue reading.

From Norman Wilner of Now:

Link: TV review: Netflix’s Another Life is a fun disaster-a-minute sci-fi series
Sometime in the not too distant future – at a point when we’ve achieved faster-than-light space travel, but also still have social media – an alien ship crashes to Earth and turns itself into a weird glittery formation, its origin and purpose a total mystery. Who sent it? What do they want? And who’s brave enough to find out? Continue reading.

From Heather M. of TV Goodness:

Link: Previewing Netflix’s Another Life
Netflix taps the science fiction well again when it drops the ten-episode first season of Another Life this Thursday. Headlined by Katee Sackhoff, who also produces, and starring a deliciously diverse cast, the series is both a deep dive into space and the humanity of people who leave their real lives behind to go there. Continue reading. 

From Samantha Nelson of The Verge:

Link: Netflix’s Another Life starts as Arrival, then turns into Star Trek
Set in the relatively near future where humanity has developed spaceships that can travel faster than light, and technology that puts people in stasis for long journeys, the story of the 10-episode first season (four episodes were provided for previews) largely follows Niko Breckinridge (Katee Sackhoff), a veteran astronaut who was involved in a disastrous mission to Saturn nine years before that left half the crew dead. Continue reading.

Galactica nostalgia may be enough to intrigue some sci-fi lovers’ but, if the first two episodes are any indication, the premise won’t do much to retain their attention. Continue reading.

Link: Link: Another Life Review: Netflix Offers Up A Dissatisfying & Derivative Sci-Fi Thriller
Netflix’s new sci-fi thriller Another Life has a great hook: It brings Katee Sackhoff back to outer space on a television series for the first time since her run as Starbuck ended on Battlestar Galactica. Continue reading. 

From Adam Rosenberg of Mashable:

Link: Another Life is an unhinged ‘so bad it’s good’ Netflix sci-fi series
Space is where things get really wild, though. The young crew faces a never-ending string of disasters as they journey toward their destination, and yet in the midst of all the horror they still make time for petty squabbling and lustful pursuits. Continue reading.

Link: Netflix’s ‘Another Life’ star Elizabeth Faith Ludlow shares how Katee Sackhoff helped her get through a ‘panic moment’ during the shoot
“Katee was right there and she has done it before so she came over to me and was talking me through it and letting me know everyone’s going to be right here if you need anything.” Continue reading. 

From Tim Goodman of The Hollywood Reporter:

Link: Another Life review
The best thing actors have going for them when they’re in something that is, let’s just say, less than stellar, is their own history. If they’ve done good work, you know they can act. Give them good words and the best actors will make them great. Continue reading.
