What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Only 2 episodes in but unlikely to go back for more.
Started out interesting, debris from the sky, destroys a bird feeder, kills a calf, breaks a window, causes a gas explosion.
Spies, Aliens, kids investigating but.... Poor acting and a very slow paced story hold back what could be a good "famous five/secret seven" style show, and from what I've read season 2 moves away from following the kids story's.
May get better later on as it did make it to 3 seasons but with so many other good shows to watch, I'll probably not make more time for this one.
Over all if you are looking for a safe family series give it a go, there will be some fun to be had.
Note: Show has a Mormon station background so there is a little extended preachyness but not to Kirk Cameron levels, so I didn't think it too over doing it - but you can make your own decisions on that.
