I got hooked by Season 1 with constant action: survival, guerrilla, the struggle to keep basic values in the midst of mayhem. Each turn and twist of the plot managed to surprise you. Then Season 2 introduced new characters, some relationship-building and, alas, in order to allow for those more intimate moments, the alien enemy started to look less frightening and increasingly ineffective. But some sense of menace prevailed, and all in all it kept interest high and adrenaline soaring when needed. Now Series 3: the plot goes nowhere, some extended psychological mumbo jumbo drags on at the expense of rhythm, action, plot. Even actors seem to hold their punches and barely manage to pull two different expressions through ten episodes. And the "far west" reminiscence with the addition of (well groomed) horses (!), the Mason gang riding into the wilderness, Tom Mason acting like a righteous sheriff etc. looks absolutely stupid and out of place... particularly when facing superior alien technology. Let's face it: in spite of bringing new allied aliens on stage, and spicing it up with a rebel resistance of skitters (which is barely credible as they never seem to amount to more than ten of their kind) Series 3 is boring! I liked the first two deliveries but this one gets my thumbs-down. I only put up with it in order to be able to watch Series 4, which I hope will pick-up the pieces and lift my interest. But on the basis of an awful Series 3, I wonder.

OK, I have watched series 1 and 2 and although not a great fan of Noah Wyle in this (he is as miserable as sin throughout) I have stuck with it to the beginning of series 3.

My main complaint apart from the lapses into some poor science has to be the incessant and deeply annoying background music. It is constant - it is on every scene. I honestly thought I had left a radio or my phone on in the room before I realised it was part of the soundtrack to the programme I was trying to watch. It is not particularly loud and perhaps it would be better if it it was.

It is like a constant and pointless hum in the background and once you realise it is there you cannot get it out of your head.

Why? It adds nothing. You cannot turn it off - it drives me up the wall.

Watched 1st episode of this and was instantly hooked, bought box set of both series and have just spent the whole weekend watching it all completely, each episode as you sitting on the edge of your sofa wanting to know what happens next, if you like V and other syfy series then this will have you hooked in an instant. Enjoy.

This show isn't remotely as well done as Walking Dead.... The first season the acting, scripting and casting is poor.......some of it is completely implausible, I,e playing on a skateboard in front of a jubilant crowd of survivors as in the distance the enemies ships can be seen buzzing around, one of many such typically overly sentimental scenes. That said however...........after 5-6 episodes it becomes fairly watchable. By season two it appears someones given the producers advice on creating a more forbidding atmosphere and at times you do start to feel that your transported to a post apocalyptic world rather than a bad soap opora.... I would advise you buy this if you love this kind of genre or if you are just plain bored like I was. Its OK and no more. Its a shame they that better writers / directors weren't brought in because I view this as an opportunity missed. The world is crying out for a properly done blunt Tarantino-esqe MAD MAX type tv series...... In the right hands you could have so much fun.
Walking Dead / Vikings and Game of Thrones are by far the best escapist tv series available
