  • I hope I am not getting into a show that will leave me wonder why I watched it in the first place.

    I like this show. I like the actors. I like the characters. They started out capturing my attention. What really did happen to these people during this hurricane? But the more they reveal which is basically they can breathe underwater, the more I feel that after all this time and patience and vcr tape that the conclusion or the cliff hanger will not make me tune in in the future. Please help me to stay with this show.moreless
  • What happened to Rose's cat????

    Towards the end of Episode 11 "Us or Them", Mariel shows up at Russell's place for Rose's cat, which is in a red pet carrier she is holding when walking back to her car. During a heated discussion, she drops the pet carrier into the water. They argue, then kiss and the camera pans out, revealing the pet carrier in the water.

    Up until that point, I thought it was part of the plot. I was sure that the alien was going to get the cat while they both stood there. While they were kissing, the bright sunlight shines on the water, which even looked like the light of an alien squid. Only when the camera pans out and the scene ends was the mistake revealed.moreless
  • Another great episode.

    I really love this show. Russel starts to worry if he can trust Tom or Mariel. He starts to fear if he needs to continue bringing his kids to Tom's house now that he knows what he is. The writers have done a really good job getting to this point, it's a really cool episode. The characters are dealing with conflicts around them. We're not sure if Russel and Tom's famly can continue living together, so much stuff happening, things aren't the same anymore. In this episode, we explore Mariel's state of being, she somehow knows that she's a hybrid. It's a great episode.moreless
  • Kind of an infill episode, but still great. Good to have an episode that expands on Jesse\'s character

    Not too bad. A little slow in some parts, but offered more information about Jesse\'s character. Russell attempts to understand more about what has happened to Mariel. Tom deals with the consequences of changing Sirk, and tries to make up for what he did by treating him nice. Overall, though a pretty good episode.
  • good episode but need more work

    still think that the writers and directors have to deliver to us more info in every show. I have compare this show with a parallel x-files but i have to wait to give my verdict. In this episode we find that the invadors have a good and bad side and will spread all over the world if they let them.
