I think I have seen it all, to do with aliens and invasion films and TV series.
This one has so many plot flaws holes in the storyline and not enough of the good stuff to make it worth watching.
please watch it and make your own mind up, however the thing that has put this TV series in the toilet for me is season 2
season 1 I soldiered through with a morbid fascination
season 2 is ruining pretty much everything.
let me summarise why I am so hideously annoyed with this TV series.
you are on the run from an alien menace who has laid siege to the planet and exterminated most of the human race. a small desperate band of survivors fight for their lives, with guerilla tactics and rugged determination...with me so far mix into this mix enough time in each and every episode to lay thick moral and soppy lovey story lines and you now have about 20% of every episode to contain the much loved alien bashing and shooty stuff 20%? you say cant be bad... do not be fooled of this 20%, 15% will be the thought of aliens being there and the 5% depending on which episode you watch will be the action I crave. The characters are moralistic and keep you thinking they are human, but basically in reality they would be long dead.. they march about in large well lit convoys and camps, their latest move was to set up shop in a hospital and not only did they turn all the lights on and sit around under the entrance well lit hospital sign they have been there for weeks. so call the aliens flawed if you like but spotting this group would be bleeding simple a simple fly by looking for bright lighthouse style beacons or simply follow the endless stream of motorbikes and other not so stealth vehicles blazing around firing guns and you have yourself one less resistance force. my friend and i took bets on how much of each episode we could switch off from the end and not lose any storyline about 10 minutes was the general estimate, of which those ten minutes contained woes of life before aliens or lost loved ones, no sign of cowboy up from any of the main characters except Ben. disappointed is an understatement they could do some great things, they kept this on TV and Cancelled V it is a travesty.
sorry if i offend any fanboys but it is a real disappointment for me
