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.

A very intriguing and interesting introduction to what appears to be the best UFO/Extraterrestrial series since X files/
10 January 2019 | by tresm87See all my reviews

When this was announced, I was very excited especially with the fact that Robert Zemeckis was involved, and that it would be an actual series based on true events that looked to have great potential with its production quality. After watching the fantastic first thoroughly ENGROSSING episode, I can confirm that imo this is indeed already the best show we've gotten for UFO/Alien subject matter since the timeless early seasons of The X files. While it is heavily influenced from The X files in its structure, tone, and overall delivery, it stands on its own quite well enough to sustain its own identity. The acting is tremendous so far especially from Aidan Gillen and Michael Malarkey, and you really do become enamored with Dr. Hynek's fascinatingly brilliant character. Overall they did a terrific job portraying the true story it was based on with an extremely captivating first episode full of great twists, turns and solid mystery that keeps you wanting another episode immediately. The production quality is excellent with outstanding camerawork, vast settings, and accurate ambience and atmosphere to fit the late 40's/50's timeframe. A series thats definitely worthy of your time more so than most tv series.
