In the six months since the initial invasion, the few survivors have banded together outside major cities to begin the difficult task of fighting back. Each day is a test of survival as citizen soldiers work to protect the people in their care while also engaging in an insurgency campaign against the occupying alien force. Written by Deeww

Erm....did you say seizures?
19 June 2012 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

I gave this show a try about 2 months ago and really wanted to like it. After episode 3 I simply had to abandon it because it got downright insulting in every aspect of the show. I moved on but did not create a review because I liked the idea behind it and hoped that it would become better as the season progressed.

Today I stumbled across it again, read through a lot of reviews again (especially the last episode) and thought: "Well, maybe it got a lot better until the end of the first season...".

Many in the audience might not agree with this kind of evaluation but I thought it would give me the greatest contrast to watch the first few episodes and again followed by the last one and I was right...

I was speechless about what I experienced in the roughly 40 mins of the last season's episode: THE SHOW ACTUALLY GOT EVEN WORSE!!! I have never ever seen a Sci-Fi show more shallow, unbelievable, completely without tension, corny, sappy, clichéd, badly CGIed and whatever else my mind can come up with but isn't willing to waste anymore energy on (and this sadly is an understatement!).

The fact that there is a second season in the making blows my mind and lets me realise how deeply the average intelligence of today's audience has been degraded.

2 words (and then some...): Stay away (if you like Sci-Fi)!
