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.

So far so good
9 January 2019 | by anitafenwickSee all my reviews

I'm reading reviews about it having too many commercials. Just an idea but record it, fast forward through the commercials, problem solved! As for the programme, it has started off pretty darn good, we have our clear Mulder and Scully characters, the smoking man character and there is also a Skinner type fellow! The xfiles it is not, but has potential to tell some very interesting stories with strong performances from the two leads. I am looking forward to future episodes.
