Storyline

The chaotic aftermath of an alien attack has left most of the world completely incapacitated. In the six months since the initial invasion, the few survivors have banded together outside major cities to begin the difficult task of fighting back. Each day is a test of survival as citizen soldiers work to protect the people in their care while also engaging in an insurgency campaign against the occupying alien force. Written by Deeww

Emotional bullshit.
8 March 2015 | by stefangeserSee all my reviews

Having allot of night shifts in a row, with loads of hours needed to be spend doing something, i started on this TV-show, mainly because i just love sci-fi.

However, the sci-fi part is really a small part of this TV-show, mainly is is a constant emotional roller coaster ride, up and down, in every episode, one just have to close his eyes and listen to the background music, its just crazy how it can keep on going.

1. try to count how often "Family", "hope", "faith" and trust" are used, its just ridiculous.

2. Notice how they never seem to learn from anything, they keep doing basic kids mistakes, yes, the fire will burn your fingers again the second time you put them into the flames. 80% of all the problems they get into, is not because the aliens are tricky, its because they are just really really damn dumb.

3. Notice also how they don't evolve to the situation, in a show like the walking dead, they slowly get more and more bad-ass, cynical and thorough, survival becomes a part of them. But not with these, its drama, drama, and then some more drama.

Only my damn stubbornness and curiosity kept me going, i wanted to see how season 4 ended, but i can assure everyone, that I'm not gonna watch season 5, out of fear from becoming transformed into an emotional wreck.
