Show has good potential, but falls short on re-enactments
Was really excited about this show as I'm an avid consumer of UFO/Paranormal documentaries. I have watched the first two episodes in the series.
I found the stories, and the interviews with the people involved very compelling. The stories were deep, fascinating, and scary. The interview style was good, and reminded me of a similar show "Paranormal Witness". The issue, I believe, is with the re-enactments of the events in the stories. These were all done on a green screen, and its very obvious throughout. I'm not against green-screens per say. If you need to create the illusion that your characters are within an alien space-ship, then this is likely the way to go. The issue I have with the use of this technology is that it is used in the most awkward places. Scenes where the characters are talking outside in a drive-way by their car use green screen background. The lighting is off, it looks incredibly fake and it takes away from the entire draw of the story. It would be much better if the shots that didn't require special backgrounds (outside, in a car, in a house, etc) used real backgrounds with better lighting.
I am looking forward to the next couple episodes and hopeful that the artificial portion of the visuals will be toned down and only used when required.
