  • WOW!

    "On the first day of invasion 19 million will die." Cade Foster is the archetype the aliens want to study. They steal his money, cancel his credit cards, kill his wife, put crazy thoughts in his head, get him fired from his job and frame him for murder( those bastards!). This is a very adult show. It contains nudity and horrific imagery. The reason I loved this episode was its Lovecraft done right storyline and the Total Recall special effects. I would even say this show could be a marriage of Phillip K Dick and Lovecraft. It rocks.
