I guess if you are used to Star Trek next generation and people acting like adults its harder to wacth Prometheus. Also I hate religion so that left a foul stench in the room for me. It took a lot of stuff from alien as well. i guess if your not christian or were not raised christian youd miss all the jesus inuendo.
I was a fan as a teen years back for ST:NG. Cause netflix added it to the streaming library I watched a few of the episodes I could recall liking from way back when. Hair styles and SFX aside, I was impressed that it held up quite well even now, writing and acting. Stuff like thecomputer 'multi touch' and ipad-esque elements even. No holodeck yet but we're probably getting close.
