"War of the Worlds" season one was simply spectacular. A series with a talented cast, production team, writers and concept executives, it delivers a perfect mix of characters, drama and scifi action. Amongst some of my favourite moments include those with The Blackwood Project at The Cottage, their individual personalities shining for some great comedy moments as well as heartfelt camaraderie.
Despite the well documented changes that occurred in Season Two with arrival of The Morthrai (and a new leading team of producers and writers), a great cast held it together; making this, although jarring at times worth watching despite the sting.
Some of the best aspects of the series come from the heart, and storylines revolving around a more mature Debbie (Rachel Blanchard) and a more "Ripley-esque" Suzanne McCullough.
Although continuity went out the car windows a bit, the end of season finale with the time travel back to the original 1953 "Martian" invasion was clever to keep our attention, and saved my opinions of this second wave of alien invaders despite the clich or hyperbole.
For your own sanity though, I recommend you fill in the blanks with your own answers to things that don't add up. Between us, they can be explained, and this show can be saved - as otherwise, it allows Frank Mancuso Jr. to win what was his war on the series, if his deliberate attempts to sabotage are to be believed. ;)
