Pioneer One is a science fiction series. What's special about it: It's completely supported by donations and it's distributed via BitTorrent. It comes under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license.
I read about the first episode a while back, but I forgot about it. Recently, I stumbled upon it again and took the opportunity to watch it. Up until now, just two episodes are completed, Episode three is announced for 28th of March and Episode four is in production. Further episodes will depend on the donations they get.
The rough story: A space ship is coming down over Montana and lands in Canadian territory. It spreads radiation, so the first suspicion is that it might be a terrorist attack. They find a probably russian human inside the ship, unconscious, with signets from the Sovjet Union. Their suspicion: The Sovjet Union has sent humans to settle on Mars and this one is a child coming back. The case is investigated by members of the US department of homeland security.
I found it pretty good. You can see overall that it's an independent production (for example the offices just don't look like offices from the US department of homeland security), but that makes no odds. The storyline is exciting, the actors do their job pretty well, the characters are interesting. My favorite character until now is Zachary Walzer, a scientist who's been endorsing Mars missions to the US authorities for a long time.
From the story concept, I'm not sure how this will make a very long series. At the moment it sounds like at some point they know what's going on and then it may not be interesting any more. Though there were some hints in which direction it might get to continue the story after that. I'm looking forward to see more.
