Indeed. I will definitely give this a spin! smile

On one hand, this really, REALLY sounds great.
On the other hand, I really, REALLY don't want to give Apple any money.
I'll see if I have a friend who does have an Apple TV account and who's interested in watching it if I provide snacks...

That sounds like a good idea! smile

Thanks for sharing! I loved the teaser (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bl-UkWWnb2g), the trailer makes the show look even more multi-faceted. smile

Unbearably slow;  101, 102, and 103.  I just don't care at all.  Let me know if you liked it, what aspects, and how it kept you interested.  I'd rather watch fire log on the hotel lobby channel.

I've watched 1x01 and totally enjoyed it. smile

I like that so far there have been mostly only hints, building up this "Oh, shit, something nasty is about to happen soon!" feeling. The acting is good, looking forward to the rest of the show!

It doesn't seem to be a show for impatient folks. big_smile

Yes.  That's exactly correct.  Reminded me of Signs; pointless. lol

ah now I can not mention signs. ateast Signs only had one sub story. This has too many. It wins the "diversity" rating ok - white/black/asian/arab or hispanic/oap/young/lesbian,straight.

Spoiler

The only alien we see is the tripod from "War of the Worlds" for a few secs & the meteorites.

  I can not help but feel they thought how to make x episdoes with cheap actors using as little expensive cgi as possible. The suspence is killing me I wish the aliens would. just imagine had they only made one eps available then next week then next week. lol

I couldn't resist and watched 1x2 and 1x3 today - two episodes from one show in one day, something I hardly ever do! big_smile

I was surprised they kept the slow burn pace, but I don't mind. Recommended! smile

I just noticed this has just 10 episodes. Its crazy to go at such a slow pace. I bet we only really get to see the aliens at eps 10. Now I have started watching I will finish but....

I think this is great, quality TV. Sure i always have issues with the writing these days and this show also has some dumb things but much of it is also really good. I have always enjoyed slow pace, i was afraid this show would have been some brainless action thing, but it is something else completely. Really enjoyable.

Hahaha... OMG get out of my brain... hahaha... it's even slow at twice the speed, that says it all... it was like the folks making this thought they were making an indy movie with the Cohen Bros not a Sci-Fi TV series. Not that the two can't ever meet, this however is NOT the way. On top of the glacial pace these characters are all pretty uninteresting and I really wanted to like so many of these characters.

I was disparate for something to grasp onto to enjoy about this series. As much as I hate those formulaic save the cat moments, I would've killed for someone truly to care about-someone whose path through this invasion might be enjoyable to follow... that being said I might give it a few more Eps, just for shits and giggles wink

Haha, "glacial pace"; funny and apt! lol  I tend to enjoy ufology in it's many forms, but the premise, characters, and pacing are just too dull for me to invest any time with this; I gotta enjoy the ride.  If people like dofus were somehow expecting an unlikeable brainless action show, but got this pointless slow burner instead, I can see how that would be surprising to the point of being interesting, lolz; I was not expecting that from the trailer though.

If you want a good alien show, just watch Resident Alien instead, or even Ancient Aliens.
