have to see how it shakes out....from the pilot I'm willing to give it a few more episodes before I make any decisions. I like the actors, and the direction seems good, so it is all going to depend on the writing....

It's like this season of Dr. Who. They changed writers, so I'm a little "hmm....." about this years episodes, so far.

Like most sci-fi this series is a metaphor for something much more important.
Plz note that Dale Dye is explaining asymetrical warfare in the opening scenes
Also note the story revolves around a Milita Unit (2nd Mass)
Note the setting, as told by the actors is the same ground that the Revolution was fought on.
Note the way religion is treated, open, respectful and accepted
The same for the nuclear family.
Note the patriotic icons, flags, murals, buildings
The aliens are metaphors as well:
The Skidders are a slave race
Humans with Harnesses on them are Entitlement/Drug Dependant
Mechs are armored vechicles and there will be Attack Choppers as well
The true Alien Master Race (bad guys)will be bipedal humaniods that look just like Demoncrats but wear blue berets
This aint Sci-fi, it's reality

Dead on.. I've always said..the REAL zombies we need to be ready for..will be doing the job that real American troops wont..advancing the agenda towards 3rd world..Socialist status for America.. And..you're right..they'll be wearing these...

Some of the scenes are pretty silly. Like the insect-alien creepy crawlers trying to get at the two women in the room. Supposedly they can chew through the walls/doors, but that isn't dramatic enough.

So, somehow, they are pounding huge dents in the steel door trying to bust in - blam blam blam! LOL Ok, these things are maybe a pound each? Nice trick! hahaha

The other thing I snicker about is the Catholic chanting drone music that hovers every time a Mech is shown as if the mech itself is playing a tune.

As far as the best 'silly' new show that is much better than I expected I'd say that honor goes to 'Dallas'.
