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

It started quite OK and degraded to pretty bad
3 September 2014 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

The saddest thing about this show is how few SciFi-Fans actually get how cheap, unimaginative, repetitive and lame the show got over it's course up to season 4.

There is very little good to say about season 4. Actually I can't think of anything. About every idea is old, every dialog feels phony, acting appears bored and staged and the plots and main plot are just plan stupid.

Do the people making this show and the actors saying those lines really not notice how bad this show has become? Or do they not care? Or are they in a collective hype and don't see clearly anymore?

But anyways. The fact that some people call this still a good show or even praise season 4 to be the best saddens me a even more than the quality of the show which had such potential.
