    There's an image of Mary crawling out of the sea as an infant which is basically the key to understanding the entire series. It's perhaps an unlikely signpost indicating where The Massive sits in genre terms, the notion that it's probably not (just) post-apocalyptic despite its obvious trappings. Ultimately, it's a sci-fi story, and like a lot of high-quality, high-interest sci-fi, it's a parable about lost opportunities, squandered potential, and a general warning about The State of Things. If you're one of those pop culture consumers who was frustrated by the finale of Battlestar Galactica, then maybe(?) you're not going to enjoy this thread of The Massive. Read Full Review
