To all the people that voted low, try watching past the first episode before commenting.
In general the first episode or two aren't the best due to time taken for character development. Get past that and you're in for a fun ride.
If you're looking for good feelings and happy endings, or another Dr. Who, this show is not for you.
It takes a sci-fi element and puts it in real life terms. It's a British Area 51, but they don't have all the answers, and you learn as they do. We have always been told that we are kept in the dark to protect ourselves, but this shows that even the protectors are human, with the same weaknesses and curiosities that we would all have. It's Dark and it's good.
