Extant Season 1 Episode 1: Re-Entry
5 second plot: Molly is an astronaut who has just returned from a 13-month solo space mission. Although she was alone up there, she somehow got pregnant. Her husband is working on advanced artificial intelligence robots. They already have a son designed by him. Molly doesn't connect well with her robot son. And then there's the Yasumoto organisation that seems to overlook all of them.
5 second review: Wow, this is an awesome pilot. We've got a possible psycho robot kid (who looks a bit like the kid in The Omen), a possible alien-pregnancy and a creepy know-it-all organisation. This organisation is lead by a guy who isn't 100% normal either. Great mysteries. And great expectations.
