LEAST WELL-THOUGHTOUT HAPPY ENDING
“The Midnight Sky”
We’re not scientists, but we’re reasonably sure repopulating the human race with three people — which is all that’s left at the end of “Sky,” and one of them isn’t even born yet — is not going to happen. Unless there’s a hidden colony of humans on planet K23, or the spaceship Aether is packed with fertilized embryos that can be born via artificial uterus (paging “Raised by Wolves”), the human race is done for in about 50 years, as life has been wiped out on Earth. We’re thrilled George Clooney’s earthbound scientist got his heart right with his daughter in the end, but, well, so long, humanity.
