So I watched it and thought it was okay, not great. They are apparently going to play coy with the alien species and not try to delve too deeply into their heads. That means the storylines will mostly be about people in difficult situations. We'll probably run into the Bonanza Effect pretty quickly -- episodic storylines where Ben, Adam, Hoss, and Little Joe save the day for some remote farm or community only to return home to Hop Sing and a warm meal at the end of the day.

I had higher hopes for the show but I'm not sure they were justified. I will keep watching for now to see if I am wrong.

I never tried it. Wonder if anyone had an opinion on it? The effects didn't look great but I thought it had a decent cast.
I can imagine quite a bit.

I think Michael and I had pretty much the same impression of it in this thread. Great if derivative idea, somewhat handicapped by very typical/cliched tv conventions.

It started to get interesting toward the end of the season. I think they have made a mistake in focusing on the relationships between the human characters. The really interesting characters are the aliens.
