    I think most shows do that these days, they usually keep one name for both though.

    It was good, entertaining scifi gun porn. Not brilliant, I thought everyone was perhaps a little too cheery for what is essentially a post apocalypse situation, their child actors certainly aren't as good as other shows like Game of Thrones, and their cgi, while it isn't horrible was distinctly average. Still as I said it was entraining and I remember reading a review on io9 a little while back that said the show picks up a lot several episodes in, so I'm going to stick with. Worth it just to see Colin Cunningham in a good role.

    I thought this was a very good premiere. I can definitely see myself getting into this show. I really hope it does well.

    Well, BSG season 3 did the same thing. Maybe they didn't expect it to be a 2 hour premiere when writing, then TNT decided to air the first two episodes together as a special premiere event.

    I know BSG did the same thing at the start of Season 3.0

    I liked it a lot, I found it entertaining. I'm glad it got good ratings for its premiere. I know it was really heavily advertised(I don't watch much tv and I saw several commercials for it), so a lot of viewers may have just tuned in out of curiosity, hopefully it doesn't drop too much in ratings, and that enough viewers liked it enough to want to watch it next week.

    Hmmm...I had high hopes for the show, but each time I tried to watch the DVRed show...I fell asleep. I made 3 attempts and finally said enough. I just don't know what was off, I just couldn't make it through the first episode and this was at 2:00 in the afternoon!

    I really enjoyed it...have watched the pilot 2 times already. And next weeks episode looks good too. I hope TNT keeps this one. Loved Colin Cunningham as the psycho ex-con what a good role for him. According to my dad they did well with the Boston geopgraphy (he's from there and he would have nitpicked if they didn't). Hopefully the ratings will stay high.
    All of the above statments are merely my own opinion unless otherwise stated.

    Not amazing, but very watchable.

    It really livened up when they introduced the bad guy ex-con. I didn't know who the actor was but the character had lots of charisma.

    I was shocked when I found out it was Colin Cunningham and I should have recognized him from Stargate. It's really a break-out role for him.

    Definitely a different role for him, isn't it? Nice to see him though.

    Okay, here's the deal. Alien invasion, with the skitters coming down in the mud with us lowly humans makes no sense. If you can build interstellar spaceships, robots, etc..., you don't fight upstart monkeys with machine guns. You'd do something like nukes from orbit, intelligent viruses, drop asteroids on us until we were dead, almost anything other than climb down here with us and our kinetic weapons. So, what's going on? My guess is they are something from much closer home, future humans from a dying Earth maybe. The 'aliens' might not be the skitters at all, they might be in the mechs. If they are the skitters, my guess is they are genetically modified humans clinging to life on the future poluted or plague-ridden Earth and have come back here to stop us from destroying the planet. Makes a lot more sense than suicidal aliens coming many light years to fight with monkeys.

    It depends on what the end game is, if the end game was extermination then yes your way would be the way to go, but who says it is? Just asking...

    They've already nuked most the major cities, and killed a large percentage, if not the majority of the population, as well as destroying any large build up of military units, that's already established early in the show. It's also shown when a resistance group get hold of heavy weapons, they get nuked, we actually see that at the start of the first episode.

    The whole "future human" thing doesn't really hold up then, because the aliens have done a lot of damage to the planet. The reason why they are now fighting the humans on the ground is because it seems they want the children, and you can't get at them when you've burnt them to a cinder.

    Very different role, but it was very good to see him. I plan on trying to watch the pilot one more time when it airs on Friday. I hope I don't fall asleep this time!

    Default Not an invasion per se

    It doesn't make sense from an alien invasion perspective. Why take children as slaves when you have robots? Why take children to use up and spend the trouble to fix them? And why did the series preview allude to how human the skitters look internally? No, they are related to us in some way, either by a common future or possibly genetic engineering to fit on Earth. That might make some sense, take the kids for breeding stock. But again, think about it, a human male carries millions of sperm. You don't need the whole person, just a test tube. Ditto with eggs from females. Why children, it has to be a grander scheme involving saving us from ourselves.

    I would think that humans from the future wouldn't want to go back in time and wipe out their (possible)ancestors.

    While I do agree with that, I do think that there is some connection between them and us. We shall see.
