Goofs

When the RPG is used to shot down the alien craft it had its case remade in alien metal. RPG is a shaped charge weapon, on impact there is a flame that cuts through the metal, hence the case material is irrelevant. See more »

Just a question
14 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have no problem with the series other than it's just a soap opera with an invasion by extra-terrestrials as a background. I've noticed that there is really very little creature exploitation. Skitters are fairly well-conceived creatures, but we don't see enough of them.

We are constantly hoping the humans, with all of their frailties, don't become turncoats and try to save their own skins by consorting with the enemy. Enough! How about an overview of the conflict in other parts of the country - might give our boys some hope. It worked in "Independence Day"

Bottom line: from the great AL Capp character, Pogo - "We have met the enemy, and he is us".

By the way, was the final episode "Eight Hours" really a 2-hour episode, or did I miss something?
