She teams up with a local detective to stop the forces that want to destroy the planet’s last hope. The show, which also stars Dominic Monaghan and Joe Manganiello, will debut two new episodes. Here is what The audiovisual club‘s notes William Hughes in his review:
Luckily for fans of the genre, Lunar Haven works both as a mystery and a science fiction allegory; despite its sometimes slow pacing, it steadily overlays clues to both the murder and the culture that produced it. It wobbles at times for some really big ideas and great visuals, but it’s also a quietly human series, whether racing to the next beat in mystery or taking a moment to appreciate the weird (sometimes cheesy ) beauty of the world for which it is created. himself.
