Storyline

In this conspiratorial Sci-Fi thriller set some time after WWII and loosely based on the US government's real life Project Blue Book, Captain Michael Quinn and Dr. Allen Hynek are tasked by the US Air Force to investigate reports of UFOs and debunk them, or at least come up with rational explanations for them. While Quinn, a smooth and tough military type, doesn't care about anything other than doing the job he was given, at first, the more skeptical Hynek quickly becomes convinced that some kind of deadly conspiracy is afoot. Meanwhile, as Cold War paranoia spreads among the population, a charismatic blonde with an agenda of her own befriends Hynek's lonely wife.

Timeline Very Confusing
9 January 2019 | by afr52See all my reviews

The writers don't seem to have done any serious research or are not very clear as to the time period they are representing. Hynek started working with them in 1948, yet they are watching Day The Earth Stood Still which was filmed in the spring of 1951. Duck and Cover started in 1951 also. So what period is episode one set in? 1948 or 1951? Hynek was recruited in 1948. Confusing to say the least. I generally like the show but I expect the History Channel to show something accurate in general timeline.
