Trivia

As with the original series, the Visitor's alien text is just a substitution cipher for the alphabet, but written top to bottom then left to right, often breaking words into multiple columns. Many letters have a counterpart rotated 180 degrees, while the glyph for the letter H is already 180-degree symmetric. See more »

Slow start but the plot is thickening
25 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Before I even read the comments on IMDb my opinion on the first episode was also that the 45 minute pilot episode seemed rushed and compressed with too much happening. It should have definitely been at least a 90 minute intro episode. However, I stuck with it and the story is now starting to take shape. I really do hope they continue for at least a couple of seasons (like the original) otherwise it will be a severe anti climax to the build up currently developing in the story.

The pilot episode was no match to the original but as the plot has begun to develop (in the more modern era) It has become much more entertaining. It seems to be the opposite to the original (which had a great opening mini series which then faded) This new series had, for me, a dire opening episode but is gaining my interest with each new episode.
