I tried but lost interest a half hour in.

 

I felt the same way and was about to delete it half way through but then it started getting better.  I like the lead guy Nolan's character and his "companion."  Nice to see Julie Benz & Mia Kirshner in this too so I'll keep watching for now.  But I can't help but feel that this is bad rip off of too many great sci-fi shows.  The town and the people living there reminded me of another alien planet of the week episode from Star Trek, Stargate, etc..  And how do all these aliens always look human and speak English?  Falling Skies is much better!!  :nono2:

Not bad.  Couldn't poke TOO many holes in it so the willing suspension of disbelief was still holding up.  This could be good and at the very least I'll keep watching to see where it goes.

 

If nothing else, I should watch to encourage SyFy to have ACTUAL SCIENCE FICTION on their channel...  ...like it was in the beginning!

Can't wait to see more.

 

The assembly of aliens reminds me of Babylon 5.

So did I.

 

Cliche after cliche after cliche ...

 

One would rather rewatch Mad Max, Babylon 5, Stargate..you name it.

Watched the 2nd episode and haven't changed my mind about it at all.  Excellent!

For my own pleasure, I hope to see some type of map of New Earth.
