Intriguing, gutsy dystopian mystery
21 May 2018 | by dissanctusSee all my reviews

I don't often write reviews, leaving this to more learned critics, but I just had to mention what a successful mix this is of drama and sci-fi thriller. The actors all do excellently, and the show benefits greatly from letting your imagination paint a worse picture due to what you don't see. There are ominous echoes of our own history here and there, as the occupying forces are rarely shown, but their power is obvious, especially given the traitorous collaboration of the government. This show really keeps me looking forward to more of the unraveling mystery; what is the true intention of these mysterious invaders? There are some gritty characters that work well and one feels for the family. The effects are few but shockingly effective. All throughout the series manages to maintain a tense paranoid atmosphere which never allows you to relax. I think it's a really good example of sci-fi TV and hope it continues until completion unlike so many promising shows today.
