This six episode television series documents the first manned landing on Mars in the year 2033. It's basically treated as a documentary, going back and forth to real stories from the present (such as SpaceX) to the fictional account in the future. In the first crew a person gets injured by a landing strut and then another dies in an accident. They must survive for a few years so they find shelter in a cave system, where they build a habitat. Then, we skip four years and other crews have arrived, including a botanist who becomes unstable once a massive dust storm interferes with their solar power and he can no longer care for the greenhouse plants. A slight attempt is made with characterization, from the Chinese twins (one is on Mars, the other at the control station on Earth) to a relationship between two on the original crew. I think I've seen all of the other Mars series and movies to date and I found this extremely unpleasant and dark.
It lacks any sense of adventure, primarily due to all the drab characters. I guess there's no joy on Mars!
