Ok so who else if anyone watched this new show last night?
I thought it was great. First it's a change from the Hollywood formula of "aliens attack, we defeat them, the end." It's about the alien occupation of Earth and Humans trying to survive/fight a resistance war.
One of the best things about this show so far is the realistice take on the characters. They seem like real people with real problems. For instance loss of family and having to work together in an organized but informal way.
Having the aliens be non-humanoid is a great touch. They also don't speak in a way that we'd understand. So far much of them is a mystery. I hope it stays that way.
The cast works well. I wasn't a Noah Wyle fan before this but I think I'll be one now. Moon Bloodgood in a series is great.
Will Patton does his thing as a tough guy leader and having real life retired Captain Dale Dye helps with the military aspect of both the character and the writing.
