Netflix’s asteroid-impact series ‘Goodbye Earth’ is an insufferably slow disaster saga (review)

When you start rooting for the planet-killing asteroid in a speculative disaster show to please hurry up and put humanity out of its misery, you know the series is in trouble.  

And that’s precisely the case with Netflix’s new dystopian sci-fi series, “Goodbye Earth,” a well-meaning project hailing from South Korea, directed by Kim Jin-min (“My Name,” “Extracurricular)” and starring Ahn Eun-jin, Yoo Ah-in, Jeon Sung-woo and Kim Yoon-hye. It’s loosely adapted by screenwriter Jung Sung-joo from Japanese writer Kōtarō Isaka’s novel, “The Fool at the End of the World” (“Shūmatsu no Fūru”).
