War Of The Worlds in name only
8 November 2019 | by mrcandyman50See all my reviews

I guess the creators of this series wanted to make a Walking Dead style series with aliens and just slapped on the War Of The Worlds because it's a well known title. So far (i've finished 3 episodes) the series is ok, but none of the key elements from the book that are in all the other adaptations are in this version.

Someone should make a movie adaptation from Jeff Wayne's version. That would be awesome.
