This was, as stated previously both predictable and an excellent pilot for a TV series. Alas, no TV series will follow.
Why, then did I give it seven points? It is an excellent execution of a simple plot. Moreover, the Big-Evil-Thingy-In-Question (to avoid a spoiler), has a potentially Lovecraftian, distant, unknowable sort of horror to it.
Of course, the script-writer completely failed to exploit it and makes it tangible long before its potential horror has expired.
If you like single-concept science fiction, punctuated by insufficiently bloody violence (aka B-movies), you will enjoy this as much as I did.
