I wasn’t a big fan of Arthur C. Clarke’s novel Childhood’s End (see my full review here). Despite that, I was interested to see how SyFy’s TV miniseries adaptation would approach the story.

In that sense, it’s an interesting look at how science fiction and pop culture have changed from 1953, when Clarke first published the novel, to the modern era.
