Episode Summary

EDIT
Decision
AIRED:
After Police Captain William Boone's wife is killed, he is recruited to work for the Taelons, a seemingly benevolent alien race that has been on Earth for three years. To do so he will be implanted with a CVI, a Cyber-viral implant that will expand his mental abilities and allow him to control a bio-weapon of unlimited power. However, before he can make his decision he is also recruited by the resistance, a group of humans that oppose the Taelons being on Earth. Lead by Jonathan Doors, the resistance informs Boone that the Taelons are not what they appear to be. The CVI implant brainwashes its subjects into following the Taelon blindly, in effect controlling them. The resistance informs Boone they can remove this aspect from the CVI on the condition that he works for both the Taelons and the resistance. Boone accepts and now searches for the truth of why the Taelons are on earth and if they are responsible for the death of his wife.moreless

  • Always give it a second try!

    Strange how this became my favorite show of all time. When I saw that it would be coming on the air I made a point to watch it. Somehow this first episode didn't reach me at first and I didn't watch it until about the third. But I do now love the series and after giving the episode another chance the episode really was good.
  • Great show to begin with!

    I really liked Boone to begin with and at first

    Didn't accept the fact that the show written him out

    As the actor has also quit shows in which he was

    On and that I thought Boone had a lot of promise

    Though I think that Liam Kincaid is my favorite, I thought they should had kept Boone because he should a lot of potential and promise!
  • Wow, this is the new series im about to watch from start to finish, and you tell me that this is what i have to look foward to!?

    7.1
    This episode is very unimpressive for an opener. There are no highstakes, there is just a lot of conjecture and paranoia in the main character and his new buddies. His wife is killed by some crazy guy, and it’s just not that convincing that he even loved her. Jumps around and isn’t very stable in terms of quality.



    We are introduced to the leader, or representation of the To'lan race, and we find out that they are kind of like gods, since they cured all disease and made life so great for the lowly humans. We find out that many people are wondering what are the Tolans getting out of this interaction, and this is the main focus of the episode, the paranoia of this benevolent race and what does it truly want from humanity.
