Of course a lot of uninteresting things will happen when aliens invade our world.
23 June 2011 | by xinix111See all my reviews

I expected so much more from this new show, but for me it's like a b-movie that begs me to watch the 2nd part. Some good acting is involved but the horrible storyline breaks it down to almost nothing. The more interesting parts of an alien invasion are skipped, like the arrival and the things that happen prior to an invasion which might be important to the story. Nothing of such kind.The story follows the uninteresting situations that might occur when aliens arrive, like getting some food from a storage or some individual trying to get his son who is enslaved by an alien that lives on his back. The aliens look extremely unrealistic and unpractical, more like robots with mechanical spider legs actually,.... The only reason for me to watch more of this show would be if other shows become even worse. Unbelievable that a team of such professionals can make something so stupid......
