Re: Invasion (Apple tv)

Ive been reading the reviews on it, and they all pretty much say the same.

It needs to get going soon or no one will be left watching it by the time it does.

Re: Invasion (Apple tv)

I have just caught up. I am curious to know if they'll be returning to Sam Neill or if he was just in the first ep as a crowd puller for the promos.

Another slow burner ep but at least they seem to be moving in the right direction.

Re: Invasion (Apple tv)

yeah, I am thinking the tone of this season is going to be all about the initial impact and reaction it. Although we thinking it is dragging on a bit I think the events transpiring in the series are all happening over a day or two. They should put a clock on it like 24 It will be interesting to see if it changes pace and if they change the cast in season 2 to tell the story from a different perspective.

Re: Invasion (Apple tv)

Ok now things are starting to kick off. Still a slow ep but more action than usual and the main characters are slightly less annoying than usual.

Re: Invasion (Apple tv)

So far its been hard work, but there has just about been enough to keep me going.
I've not seen this weeks yet, and I'm off to see OMD in a bit, so it will probably be tomorrow before I do.

Re: Invasion (Apple tv)

Well it was certainly more lively.

More like an episode from a horror story, lots of screaming.

Re: Invasion (Apple tv)

Worst episode for me. This is the reason why I don't watch horrors, too much emphasis on suspense, standing around and silence. I actually wanted to turn it off and breathed a sigh of relief when it ended prematurely after 33 minutes.

Re: Invasion (Apple tv)

Seems like they’re now ramping things up further. Still a bit slow but we got to find out a lot more in this ep. Dangling possible scenarios in front of us and certainly enough to keep me watching now.

Re: Invasion (Apple tv)

Indeed, its just got enough happening to keep me interested, and we got to see a proper alien.

Re: Invasion (Apple tv)

Hmmm, well this week was mostly a snooze fest
A couple of interesting things happened, but mostly forgettable.

Re: Invasion (Apple tv)

I would have disagreed with you towards the end had it actually led to something exciting, which it appeared to do so and then…..pffft.

The problem as I see it is they’re trying to do all this in real time and it’s not working too well. They could have covered everything so far in 1 or maybe 2 episodes if they’re weren’t trying so hard to be pretentious.

Re: Invasion (Apple tv)

Finally got to this weeks, a better episode, actual aliens.
That said, Im starting to tire of the Jap girl, very irritating.
Also, a bit confused why that group attacked the military vehicle.

Definitely an interesting end to the episode.

Curious to see what happens next week, and where it can go in Season 2.

Only thing I can think of is they somehow know about what she was carrying and were after that.

But yes, definitely a corner-turning episode. I just hope they pull enough rabbits out of the hat next week to make a re-commission worth it.
