Storyline

The chaotic aftermath of an alien attack has left most of the world completely incapacitated. 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

Mediocre at best
21 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Well I just watched the first 2 hours premier of the show, and well, it's really nothing that hadn't been done so many times before.

So aliens had invaded, and the resistance of the United States are a few migrating regiments of soldiers and civilians; most of their time was spent scrounging for food and weapons.

You get the occasional firefight with the aliens and the standard human bandits. And of course there is the rising tension between the military and civilians. Sounds very familiar doesn't it? Like Battlestar Galactica or Stargate Universe? And these shows were pretty recent, so why copy their premises?

And you get the same cliché characters: the hard-ass group commander, the father looking for a lost son, the hot tough chick that can fire a gun, the tough guy outlaw that knows more about fighting the aliens than the soldiers, the pretty doctor that stands up for the civilians. A big yawn. While I was watching, I could literally predict what was going to happen next. And I found it hard to care about these characters at all. Is it really so hard to do something a little more original?

Anyway, they did introduce some mysteries about the aliens that they will develop as the series continue: like why are the aliens here, why are they taking kids, etc. But I don't expect these questions to be compelling until maybe the fourth or fifth episode (if ever), and by then I think they will lose a majority of the audience, except the hardcore Sci Fi fans.
