Not bad.
29 April 2009 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

Not a bad show. Vicent tried to save a friend who killed an Invader. The trial goes on. Who is the invader. The Invaders try everything to stop the case from telling the truth. The only way Vicent figures out what happens is the defense attorney is the Invader. Cuts the Invader's face in the back room with the judge. No blood for the defense attorney which is proof he is an Invaders. However as always the Invader is kills and vanishes and their goes David Vicents proof. The judge and prosecutor drop the charges for David's friend. Good show, with a strong build up and great acting. I give the show an eight out of ten. Better than average for the series.
