This was not entertainment. This was a politically charged agenda. This wasn't even sci fi. Make no mistake. We who know about who rules and who continues to terrorize has not won any prize on television. There is a whole strategy to putting this ilk on television to charge up the public into thinking all ET's are out to getcha. If it wasn't so true, it would be cast as the most sick and perverted on prime TV.

Bettye, care to climb off that partisan cross and explain to the rest of us feebleminded idiots what the heck you're talking about?

This was way rushed, and just plain terrible. Of course i'm forced to compare to the original, and understand there are going to be drastic changes, but this just sucked. They threw way too much out in one episode and built no relationship between viewer and character. Too much "Modern drama" No good story. Ish. Sorry Kenneth. Hope you weren't wathcing. Bring on Ham and Mike, then i'll watch.
