Storyline

20th century history as we know it is a lie. Aliens have been among us since the 1940s, but a government cover-up has prevented the public from knowing this. As the series progresses, we follow John Loengard and Kim Sayers as they attempt to thwart numerous plans of the alien Hive, most of which are tied to historical events and figures. In addition, the pair must stay one step ahead of a covert government agency, Majestic-12, tasked with fighting the aliens while maintaining the conspiracy of silence.

Great series !!
10 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

This was a great series ! And a shame it was killed off way too early in its existence. I was told the reason it was killed off was that its popularity ratings (in the USA) weren't as high as expected. Yet on the other side of the Atlantic, UK and Europe, it really took off, with broadcast taking place at peak time, and a second series was eagerly anticipated. Shame it's not out on DVD yet either. The whole plot was fresh, and the way the writers interlaced real historical events with the storyline of the episode was always intriguing. Never looked at The Beatles in the same light again ........ It's good to see that there are others that think that this series needed to continue, and that it remains much missed.
