Quotes

Pamela: Is that the sound of panic in your voice, Diana?
Diana: The situation is under control.
Pamela: Oh, "under control," you say? One of your most trusted leftenants has betrayed you, escaped right under your nose with the leader of the Resistance and you have the gall to tell me that everything is under control?
Diana: They will be captured and dealt with.
Pamela: Oh, I hope so... Otherwise... I'll be forced to strip you of your command!

a must-see
21 December 2000 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

This was the perfect sequel to the original miniseries about the aliens who arrive on earth and establish a fascist government there, only to be met with a successful resistance movement. The cast was first-rate, as Michael Ironside was a perfect addition to Marc Singer, Robert Englund, Faye Grant, and co. The suspense and overall storyline were first-rate as well.

I loved the series when I was a kid, but like it even better now that I know more about the undertones and historical allusions. (Nazi takeover of Europe, McCarthyism, etc.) This is a must for sci-fi fans.

*** 1/2 out of ****
