A modern revival of the classic science fiction horror anthology show The Outer Limits (1963). Episodes often have twist-endings and involve aliens. Sometimes, a story from one episode continues in a later episode.
Reformed thief Cade Foster discovers that aliens are among us in the form of genetic clones, intent on enslaving the population. To assess the human potential to fight back, they gather data from 117 test subjects. When Foster remembers the tests conducted on him, the aliens frame him for his wife's murder. Pursued by the police and a mysterious government agent, Foster discovers the quatrains of Nostradamus, which tells of three waves which will destroy the planet, unless a "twice blessed man" can stop them. Aided by a quirky cyber-journalist, Foster investigates strange occurrences which have ties to Nostradamus' quatrains, hoping to find what he needs to forestall the aliens' plans.Written by

First Wave premiered on the Sci-Fi Channel in March of 1999. Due to disappointing ratings, the series was cancelled after the three season contract ended in 2001. See more »

In episode "Lungfish" in the uncut overseas version Esther (Emmanuelle Vaugier) emerges from the lake completely nude. That scene was re-shot for the North American market where she emerges from the lake wearing a black dress. See more »
This is a wonderful series, now in the beginning of its second season (at the time of this writing). The stories are consistently high quality, and the characters are believable, with strengths and weaknesses that each interact with the unfolding story line.
This is a must watch show.
