Okay, I'll address the elephant in the room; any thoughts on what might take place in Season 3?

Spoiler

I still say that Micah's journal was/is/will be the starting point of the inevitable.

Finished season 2 today. Lovely! I'm actually surprised that there is a season 3! smile Positively surprised, of course. cool

Spoiler

I'm not sure... with Emily out of the picture, either there'll be a whole new future (yay, another time travel paradox), or - with the future people now being back in the recent past, maybe they use the journal to travel into the future to influence Emily's fate in the recent past... It gets a bit confusing. lol

Re: War of the Worlds (2019) [Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi]

Spoiler

It made no sense that the past Emily was aware about the future events. Also seems that killing past Emily had no effect on the rest of the travelers - which also is interesting how they even managed to travel, if it's supposed to work that you travel between your own copies in time.

Also I don't see the logic of them fighting anymore, because now they know that their ancient legend of the killer virus is a BS and also that they all are descendants of the psycho kid big_smile If anything, they should target the psycho and replace him with a higher quality sperm donor smile

After watching this last episode on Saturday, July 31, I went to cancel. In the process I was offered 2 months of epix channel at $2.99 per month which I accepted only because they seem to have a nice selection of programs and that won't break the bank.  It's cancel anytime, now or later.
It really frustrated me that the times and dates it aired were not available here.  I tried figuring that out myself and first thought it was on Sundays then checking again on a Saturday found that it was the day.
I can't remember when off-hand but they skipped a week, didn't air the program. I couldn't think of a good reason for it except extending my monthly paid subscription a little farther.
All-in-all the show's not good enough to carve a dent in my little budget like that. There's a season 3 coming, whoopee-do.
War of the World's is/was ok but nothing to write home about.

I enjoyed War of the Worlds.  It's certainly better than quite a few of the other shows I watch.  But I'm not sure where they will go with it in season 3.

First episodes of the new season look good, tho need to rewatch the last episode of the previous season, I'm having hard time following what exactly is going on and parts in French language also don't help.

And the last few seconds... yikes

Re: War of the Worlds (2019) [Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi]

ah I have just started watching this , seeing it reported here. It is better than that other show - called "Invasion"  wasn't it? Atleast we SEE the nasty buggers. It makes sense send some small android devices to clean up any resistance.

Invasion was a specific alien themed drama. This is more classic sci-fi, but also has a strange-ish feel to it since it's French production. First seasons I remember as meh-ish, S03 so far feels the best with a lot of action.

onto season 2. oh what a dispointment.

Spoiler

There was me expecting green squid like aliens all we get are humans ( that must save a lot of cash dont it, dont even need to spend cash on weird makeup.... ) and some kind of time paradox

so now have finished all the eps. I feel season 2 spent too much time faffing around. Any feel they did not expect a season 3? Season 3 was added on as and afterthought?

Re: War of the Worlds (2019) [Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi]

Can someone explain to me something about this show please?

Spoiler

If Emily and that creep boyfriend of hers where the original seeds to the race of humans in space that came back from the future, how did those humans get here with those ships in the first place meaning how did they get out into space before the Emily story so that they could come back and kill billions of humans on earth? Did they come from another reality via a black hole? They never explained this.

Bill figures out that they are from the future but how did they get there i.e. on that planet they showed? Wouldn't there have to be some point in time where humans built those ships on earth and left to explore space, find and occupy that planet and then at some point in the future they figure out how to time travel to the past?

Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

My guess is that they intentionally didn't try to explain all of that, because with time travel, stories/ explanations can get messy quicker than you can say "Oops, I just accidentally killed my great-grandpa in his youth!" cool


Primer (2004) is perfect to visualize this: big_smile

Re: War of the Worlds (2019) [Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi]

I am upto eps 5 season 3. So it seems they are making this series up as they go along?

Spoiler

season one/two were bog standard aliens invasion that then turned into time travel and should have ended with season 2, but season 3 has now made it about travel between parallel universes it seems? ( so emily did not need to die afterall in this universe) or thats what time travel really is? That is the most interesting idea to come from this show?

Re: War of the Worlds (2019) [Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi]

I binge watched Season 3, ahead of the release dates using Canadian CBC Gem app and it's premium 1 month trial.
Excellent Season 2 time travel paradox, Emily colonizing a world by traveling in a ship built by Emilians smile and good acting.

Gabriel Byrne excels at moody troubled characters. I thought season 2 was a great finale and was pleasantly surprised to have season 3. The only fail is the idea of the two astronauts keeping secrets from mission control and perhaps the physics of black hole vs wormhole. I doubt that would be possible. There's no real privacy on a government owned space craft and if your on a Bezos owned ship, ditto.

For season 4, we could have the 2 astronauts rescued in a new future alternate world or they could explain how just two people could create a technologically advanced fanatic society. I guess tech in the ship helped. Emily had many kids but died relatively young due to bad genes or Bill's actions. Sociopathic father Sacha raised the kids for those who haven't puzzled things out. Sacha may have used tech on the ship to extract/preserve and use her ovaries. If so, Emily and Sacha clones are possible.

There's both a time travel and alternate universe concept at play which is mentioned in season 3. You have to suspend disbelief to really enjoy any good SF or fantasy. I find it more fun to speculate away any points which don't seem well explained. A show can get dull if over explained. You replied very quickly! I was still editing and revising my post so take another look at the finished version.
There's nothing to indicate the ships were made on earth.

An even bigger stretch, is that particle beam exposure and slipping into a coma lands you safely across the blackhole, on that 2nd furture alternate devastated earth.

Normally they'd needed a large population to have created such ships or with a smaller population, the colony world would have alien tech they could learn from. With the time loop and causality, the colony began with the single safely landed Emily/Sacha ship which originated from their own future!

Lukas Haas played astronaut Richard and was the Amish kid in my favorite Harrison Ford film, Witness (1985). He looked weird then, still does and is now perhaps too chubby to be in the space program. I guess they do let chubby guys go to space if they have the experience and specialized skillset under their belt. Lizzie Brocheré played Juliet.

My favorite scene from S02E08
00:07:25
(Emily wakes up on ship. Sacha recently killed her mother in order to get help from one of their descendants for Emily recovering from viral reaction. Bill created and she voluntarily took the virus which will have a cascade reaction on her progeny.)
(TEARFULLY) Leave me alone.
-We're gonna die on this ship.
-At least we’ll be together.

00:07:30
You think we're gonna be together?
I hate you.

00:07:37,440 --> 00:07:40,240
We have time, Emily.
We have plenty of time.
