Pilot

The first episode was just ok to me. A little slow to my liking. I get that they are setting up all the characters, who they are and whatnot, so there really isn't going to be a whole lot of action. But if it doesn't pick up soon, this show may not be long for this world. I will stick around for a few more episodes and see how it progresses.

Prisoner Of War

Much better episode with better pacing. This gives me hope that the series is heading in the right direction. Why do I keep telling myself this is Red Dawn with Aliens? Hmmmm? Somebody please shout out "Wolverine" already!

Grace

Interesting way the Aliens communicate by way of the imprisoned Kids wearing the harness. Pretty good episode.

Silent Kill


The episode was meh. I think my biggest problem with the show has to do with the pace. It drags in far too many places and when it gets around to the "action" scenes, they are underwhelming, lacking any kind of "Wow" moment to sustain my interest. I will see it to the end of Season 1, but after that I'm probably done with the show in spite of it already being renewed for Season 2.

Sanctuary Pt. 1



It was so obvious from the start of the episode that dude was out to harvest kids. What wasn't so obvious was who gave him the location of base camp: Pope returns. Another meh episode. I'm losing interest in this series fast. I may not even make it to the end of this season. Sigh.

Sanctuary Pt. 2



Sanctuary Pt. 2 was only slightly better than last weeks. I'm still waiting for that big wow moment that's gonna keep me coming back for Season 2. But I have a feeling that I will not get that moment and that the cliffhanger for Season 1 is gonna suck. Sigh.

What Hides Beneath



The introduction of a new Alien (Super Long Legs) or whatever the hell you wanna call them. Think of the main Alien that came out at the end of Close Encounters Of The Third Kind....but only bigger and creepier. Leave it to Pope to figure out how to kill the Mech Aliens with a single bullet.
