The most wholesome apocalypse ever will bore you to tears.
I've watched far too much of this show. I really don't know why I've done it to myself. Some masochistic urge I think, perhaps self-inflicted punishment for that candy-bar I stole when I was a kid.
I really wanted to like this show. High production value sci-fi, post-apocalyptica, alien invasions, sign me up! Alas what I thought was going to be an exciting and action-packed drama, a gritty and realistic look at Humanity attempting to survive and stay human in the face of totally overwhelming odds, turned out to be something very, very different... a sort of pseudo-metaphor for the economy that espouses American exceptionalism wholeheartedly, and simply cant stop waxing patriotic every five bloody minutes.
First off, the odds aren't overwhelming. At all. At some point in the back-story of the show they apparently were, with the world's united military force near utterly crushed in a matter of days, but apparently all it takes to turn the tide a stark 180 is a Lincolnesque history teacher with a lot of platitudes. Without any specific spoilers, the heroes of the show, and heroes they certainly are, consistently prove that advanced alien technologies are no match whatsoever for Americana.
Second, the characters are weakly composed, make totally uninteresting choices, and are often introduced solely for the purpose of being killed dramatically an episode or two later. Every opportunity for an interesting drama, a tense love triangle, a burning jealousy is passed up, the only source of conflict between the characters themselves typically being alien-induced suspicions, mind control, or the uninteresting male rivalry/bro-mance between our lead hero Abe and the resident 'bad-boy' character, ironically named Pope. Pope, get it? Because he's a bad guy, but... oh, never mind.
Pretty sure I've seen the entirety of this show, and it's really quite bad. Wholesome and G rated characters, wholesome and G rated dialogue, wholesome and G rated romances... this show would be appropriate for toddlers were it not for the infrequent brutal murder of a character the writers have tired of.
