This isn't so much an invasion as it's cohabitation, sort of like Alien Nation.

It's definitely better than Alien Nation.

ScyFy hasn't thrown this many resources towards a show since BSG. It's got better effects and is better cast than most of their other shows.

I'll give this another watch next week.

It was a little predictable -- it's essentially sci-fi western and just about every western cliche was thrown in. Having said that, I still found myself enjoying it. The writing is just good enough, if just barely, to overcome all of the cliches.

Had it on but it didn't keep my attention enough to not be distracted by other stuff. The Production quality & makeup is really good. Hopefully the plots and characters will be fleshed out more in upcoming episodes.

It's been all over my on demand station which has not built up excitement in me, it took me like 10 years to watch BSG so I'm sure I'll get to this in 20.

Pretty good until the last 20 minutes, when the CGI got cheesy and the Halo baddies weren't really explained well. And I still don't understand why the girl had to marry the little jerk.

But it's still better than mostly anything else Syfy has, and it tries to be real sci-fi and not psuedo-drama in scifi clothing.
