Storyline

After TV reporter Judy Warren receives a video of a man seemingly bringing a young girl back to life, she tries to get to the bottom of the story. Allison James fell while hiking in the woods with her mother and the video clearly shows Josh Butler cradling the girl in his arms with a blue light appearing around them. Josh lives in a cabin in the woods agrees to speak to her off the record. He seems to have an answer to all of her questions but refuses to have anything to do with her when he realizes she is secretly taping him. She is persistent but her inquiries lead to all of them being taken into custody by the U.S. Air Force who want to know just who Josh is. With severe weather in the area, Josh informs them that he must leave before the storm ends. Judy helps him to escape - but is he an alien or something else? Written by garykmcd

Everything Is a Threat
24 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The title character seems to be a messianic savior type with purely good intentions. He brings a young girl back to life after she has suffered a nasty fall, hiking in the mountains. Unfortunately, a couple of tourists film the thing, bringing in a sleazy news show host, cameras a blazing. Josh is willing to talk with her, but she is so bound by the story that she refuses to back off. He is ultimately taken by government security, a group of fascists that for some reason think he is dangerous. It is primarily because he is given the blame for a couple of satellite malfunctions. The question all along is who is this guy? Is he a god? Is he the Christian God? Is he an alien. There was just enough religious visual symbolism to make me back away. The interesting thing in this episode is what the government is willing to do to a guy who has done nothing to them. He may have had nothing to do with the satellites. Also, his relationship with the attractive female news journalist who carries around a great deal of emotional baggage. While simplistic, it's a decent effort.
