it sucks. the first 8:30 of the first episode is over on Hulu to be viewed. the writing looks to be very bad. typical non-thinking crap they always spit out in Hollyweird. for example, the ships appear over the cities. people rush to see the ship. even though all of these people saw the movie Independence Day and know what "may" happen when a giant spaceship appears over your city. then, as they stand around, the National Guard instantly appears... like within minutes of the ships appearing, and start pushing people around and telling them to move on because it's a restricted area. and of course that leads within a few seconds to citizens rioting and fighting with each other. because that was the lesson of 9/11. americans are just dumb oafs and faced with something that scares them, they don't HELP their fellow citizens, they start fist fighting with them. didn't you see all those fist fights in NYC while the twin towers were burning? nobody was helping anyone... they were just fighting. apparently that's what Hollyweird believes. and then there is the touching scene where a mother calls her son and finds out he's in the hospital. she tells him to stay there, she's on her way. of course, he doesn't, he tries to ride his bike home. only to be thwarted by those jack-booted national guard thugs who tell him to turn around, it's a restricted area. and of course in the middle of this riot and mob, his mom shows up and they find each other and everyone lives happily ever after. or not.
it's just stupid. this script has been filmed a dozen times before. giant storm coming? let's all go riot in the streets. nuclear armegeddon? let's go fight each other in the streets. everybody loses consciousness for a couple of minutes? let's all wake up and start rioting. because when people get scared, they resort to mindless violence. blech! it's all nonsense. i won't waste my time watching even the first episode in its entirety when it airs.
