Initial premise: "something" has landed and set up a flickering perimeter that is growing in diameter. This happened 3 years ago and teams (all men, natch) have been sent in not to return. The "authorities" know nothing after all this time.
Chick #1 (lead whose name escapes me) has her husband come back as the first survivor of an expedition. He is, naturally, fucked up so she joins the next, all chick (natch) expedition to find the whoosis.
Spoilers and unsolicited opinions from here on out
Wait for Netflix I think.
Worth the price of admission to see chick scientists who have never handled a gun wield m-16s.
