Storyline

Small rocks fall from the sky which, when touched, trigger a latent virus that has always existed in humans and begins mutating them into an alien species. Taking advantage of its hive mentality, the aliens are absolutely dedicated to transforming every human on Earth and do so with alarming swiftness. Only a small group of humans remain who have the medical knowledge to devise antibodies to reverse the effects of the virus. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

Weak sad mini-series
15 December 2002 | by (S. Lake Tahoe, CA) – See all my reviews

Really a disappointment from the book. The effect's are laughable, and the acting is pretty embarassing. I would not recommend this mini-series at all. If you want to see a good mini-series, rent "Band of Brothers." Whatever happened to Luke Perry anyway? The only two people that still have career's are Kim Catrall and Neal McDonough.
