HG Wells? Sounds good to me. I don’t see a release date yet but hopefully soon!

I might have missed this if not for you. This plot line has really been done to death in recent years with Falling Skies, V and Colony just to name a few. BBC usually does quality work so here’s hopping they bring something new to the formula.

Falling skies probably being my favorite out of all of those. I don’t even think I watched the last episode even when I rewatched it last year or the first time I watched it :/. I bought the whole series on disc, actually.

The remake of V is the only one I’ve seen and I don’t think I actually finished that either but that was just because of life. I’ll have to go back and watch it one day.

The first season of falling Skies was epic then it completely jumped the shark with his daughter, they did manage to make most of the supporting actors interesting and it kinda had a Walking Dead vibe what with random people having to band together. V only lasted for 2 seasons I believe and it was before streaming had really taken off so if you missed it when it aired you were sol. It was canceled just as it got going. I’m sure it would have a larger audience now because of network streaming. And Colony was canceled the same way, which really sucked cause they left many mysteries unresolved. A great show while it was on the air but in hind site a total waste of time. Imagine lost with no 4th or 5th season,smdh. I feel like the BBC usually has a series planned out from start to finish ( like Orphan Black)so i have high hopes this could end up being a satisfying show all the way through.
