  • Part 2 of the two part premiere, Slower thna part 1 but still BRILLIANT.

    What a conclusion to what was an undeniably BRILLIANT first two episodes of what will surely be one of the best shows of the year(Not just Summer - ALL YEAR).

    Tensions continued to mount between everyone as they still struggle to cope in the aftermath of a devastating invasion, The leadership struggles between Weaver an Tom seem to slowly be settling down with each man realizing the other isn't a complete moron.

    What I liked most about the episode was the human factor, The show is obviously going to focus primarily on killing aliens and trying to discover why they are here and simply focusing on that could easily lead to ignoring the human factor which would not bode well for the shows future - The familial relationships and friendship between strangers and even romantic relationships - Anyone else notice the potential love triangle with Hal and his gaggle of beauties! As I said this episode was slower than part 1 but it had to be to balance it all out and I'd say there's plenty more action and drama to come.

    Hopefully a 2nd season for the 2nd Mass and co is forthcoming from TNT and hopefully the just under 6 million viewer mark from the premiere is only the beginning.
