Last episode was meh.. needs more action and sci fi bits.
IMO the first two episodes (the premier) was really corny and they blew it on a lot of fronts like Colin Cunningham trying to channel some typo of Jon Wayne persona, the black dudes trying to hard at Hollywood OG stereotype BS, Will Patton's character being wooden, etc.
The third episode was WAY better than the first. I think it was the best episode so far.
After that they have been better than the premier, but nothing special.

I wish the pace of the show would pick up. There are interesting storylines, decent acting, and pretty good fx for a TV show, but why does it......move......so.......slow.....? For a bunch of people trying to survive, you'd think they'd have some sort of....urgency? Desperation? There's too much talky talky between the humans and more about the aliens.
I don't mind the effects as much as I mind the fairly weak story lines and poor attention to detail.
If they fixed those then I would probably then move onto the poor acting.
Also, WTF happened to the blonde girl the oldest son hooked up with?
IIRC, they went to rescue the other son and she was captured with the oldest son. They went in and got him back but nothing about her. They just moved on.
Anyways, I think the "shocker" we are going to find out is that the harnesses placed on the kids turn them into "skidders".

A 9-week season. Really.
They have the chance for several more episodes now that we see the humanoid creatures that run the skidders.
I can't see this getting picked up again. Ending the season right before most shows / seasons start.
I'd like to see it come back, but won't be heartbroken if it doesn't.
