Syfy’s three-night event series Ascension (9/8C) premieres tonight and continues through Wednesday. It’s the story of a generation ship that was launched in the early 1960s, taking a selection of humanity to a new home on a planet orbiting Proxima – because the ship’s creator/architect was convinced that the Cold War was about become hot and destroy the Earth.
It’s also the story of that man’s son, in the present, trying to preserve his father’s legacy. It’s also a serious mindbender of a concept – with one helluva twist.
The short answer to the question of Rescue Me’s [FX, Tuesdays, 10/9C] lead character’s chances of redemption following a near-death experience would be: none! This is Tommy Gavin [Denis Leary] we’re talking about – the firefighter who’s been in a downward spiral ever since 9/11. With only occasional breaks – enough to get to know that he’s a decent guy at heart [though it’s buried really, really deeply] – Tommy has continued to sink lower each season until, at the end of last season, his own Uncle Teddy shot him twice and left him on the floor of the crew’s bar to die.
