THE ALIENS - SEASON ONE

Just watched episode one. So far? Fintan Ryan’s science-fiction comedy-drama plunged straight into the action, without giving us much in the way of backstory. It is more fun that way: the inevitable confusion makes it more of a rollercoaster ride. There will be plenty of time to find out what the aliens are doing here, how they manage to be so like us (they also come in black, white, gay, straight etc), and why they are so despised. Any further physiological and neurological differences will be furnished on a need-to-know basis. The Aliens comes from the same producers who brought you Misfits, and it is made with the same verve and eye for down-at-heel chic. The Troy ghetto, while grubby, is also cool and vibrant-looking, even a little continental; the human side of the UK is exceedingly drab in comparison. Kinda makes you wish you were a 'Mork', I wonder if that was Ryan's intention?! We will see...

The Aliens is a British science fiction series about illegals (Aliens) taking what isn't theirs and being where they do not belong. One really odd thing about this series is that actual human hair is marijuana... people smoke it to get high... after I learnt that fact... it was over for me. The acting is sub-par at best... I could have wrote a better script and this show was cheaply produced...

It's not a bad show, it's just not for me.

If it had more money pored into it for better writers and production it could be a really good maybe a great show.

Aliens are here living behind a wall. Wonder if The Donald has seen it to get some ideas from it.

A young man working security at the wall discovers he's half alien. Something Mom should have told him.

Only watched 1 episode. Won't bother with anymore. Too many shows I love waiting out there.
