So if you didn't catch Extant on weds or thurs--here's a summary below.  I thought it looked promising.  Halle's same old hair style was blah, but liked her clothing on the show.

halle berry admits to david letterman that she believes in aliens 03

Astronaut Molly Woods (Halle Berry) is a woman on a mission. Well, rather, she was on a mission. Now that she's back from space and pregnant with what we assume is some sort of alien baby, she's a little confused — erm, more than a little.

As are we, actually. But that's the delight of Extant, a wonderful trifle of weirdness with layers of WTF-ery. We expected nothing less, though, as the show is executive produced Steven Spielberg.

A gorgeous pilot with vivid and sharp space scenes that could have easily been directly ripped from a big-budget film.

Speaking of the out-of-this-world elements, it was in Molly's space flashbacks that we got a better sense of what's cooking inside Molly's lady oven. The gist? Early in the episode we learned that Molly's former lover Marcus died many years ago, and she still thinks about him.  He is blackSmile

Then, while she was in orbit, we found out she saw Marcus and had an encounter/possible kiss/possibly more with him. Or something that looked like him, at least. Then, boom, she came back to Earth after 13 months in space and learned she was preggo.

The problem is she's going to have a pretty hard time logically explaining her encounter to anyone, as she erased on the on-board tapes that recorded her interactions with this familiar-yet-unfamiliar being. (WHY DID SHE DO THAT?!) Also, you couldn't see him in the videos, anyway. So, actually, having the tapes wouldn't have mattered.

Normally, this much would be enough oddness to power a few seasons on a show, but Molly has problems on Earth, too. One of them is named Ethan (Pierce Gagnon). He's a robo-boy. Well, technically he's something called humanich and was designed by Molly's husband John (Goran Visnjic, aka Dr. Kovac from ER). He is cute, swirlers would be proud, lol. These kid-bots are designed to respond to emotions and mimic the human experience — except viewers are led to believe that Ethan is anything but a happy-go-lucky droid.

The kid is freaking creepy, and Molly senses it.  Definately most creepy!
 In one scene, she reminded John that a battery pack isn't a heart and the fight got intense. It's clear John doesn't see it the same way. (Internet time-waster alert: CBS made a site where you can design your own Humanich.)

Molly isn't the only one with doubts about battery-powered boy. When John did a presentation about his project, he was met with questions about robot uprisings and so forth. Rude, considering the boy was in the room with them. But also fair questions. Once again, John was insulted by this skepticism, and stormed off, leaving his potential investors in the dust. (John, can't wait to see you get empaled by a robot.)

One investor, however, did see potential in John's project. He's a man named Yasumoto, who agreed to privately back the project. Except John doesn't know that Yasumoto is into super shady business of some sort with Molly's bosses and was once preserved in jelly. Or something. Why and how are not immediately clear.

The episode leaves off on one more note of creepy: A former coworker of Molly's — not the one she saw in space — returned from the dead to warn her about potential threats all around her. Does he mean the boy? Does he mean John? Does he mean her bosses? Does he mean her fabulous casual wear? WE DON'T KNOW.

Gabriel Aubrey update: CNN reports she's paying Nala's baby daddy 16k/month!  I think he can live well on those dimes.

The Oscar-winning actress has to pay over $16,000 in child support each month to her ex, Gabriel Aubry, to provide for their 6-year-old daughter Nahla, the Los Angeles Superior Court ordered.

Berry's monthly bill will remain in effect until Nahla turns 19 or graduates high school, whichever occurs first, according to court documents obtained by CNN. The settlement came on May 30, at the end of lengthy child support legal battle.

The court also ordered Berry to pay $115,000 retroactively in child support, as well as to cover her ex-boyfriend's legal fees, which amount to $300,000. The "X-Men: Days of Future Past" star is fully responsible for Nahla's tuition, while both parents will divide health care costs.

I enjoyed extant. The only thing that will make me lose interest is if they drag on all the secrets. It seems like they will drop some knowledge here and there so it's all good for now.

I saw the first episode. It was ok. Looks like there is potential there. However I think she has zero chemistry with the actor that plays her husband. And she really does need to switch up her hair. The short cut has done its time.

I had the same reaction in another thread about her I'd be damned if I were to bust my ass to keep my career going only to have some flimsy ass punchable face of a man take in so much of my earnings just for impregnating me and not much else. That kid is his meal ticket.

i think she deleted the tape so it didn't look like she was losing it, presumably like her coworker (that was supposedly unstable and killed himself)

Yes she needs more chemistry with her husband and with the robot child (don't know why they are both white). Plus the robot child should have more endearing moments because now I'm ready for his plug to be pulled and he gives no one any reason to want him around.

Halle needs to mix her character up too, she needs a little more nuance to her character to make us invest in wanting her to succeed/live/beat the system whatever

Halle's net worth is 70 million.  She makes 16 mill/year so 16K/mo won't be hurting her bank account by any means...
