Fantastic Adventure Through Suburban WastelandRating: 6 likes, 2 dislikes

This series starts at a point I wish series like "V" could have reached: the post-alient-invasion wasteland where survivors are trying to evade capture and use guerrilla tactics to do damage wherever they can, not to mention trying to figure out what the aliens want with Earth. Read more

Rich cgi budget and stolen sound effects from 'The Tripods' -- which incidentally is in production as movie likely to pander for those as functional as the capped. Read more

A great looking farce.Rating: 2 likes, 2 dislikes

"All My Children" with lots of guns and aliens. The great special effects doesn't make the PATHETIC story even remotely tolerable. Read more

2x10: A More Perfect Union recap: The episode begins and Gen. Bressler lets Tom and the 2nd Mass go. He explains he's been waiting for Manchester to come to his senses and let them go on the offensive, but since he's not, he's declaring martial law. Tom won't go along with it, so Bressler orders them locked back up. But before they can go back in their cells, there's a signal for an outer perimeter breech. They then charge upstairs to find skitters in the common area, led by Red Eye. Bressler's ready to shoot when Ben pops out from among the rebels. Bressler still won't give the order to stand down so members of the 2nd Mass stand in front of the skitters, in a sign of solidarity... read more.

2x9: The Price of Greatness recap: The episode begins with Porter leading the 2nd mass to an underground mall. He explains to them that when the aliens attacked, the mall was under construction. The top of the mall was destroyed but the base remained fine. The 2nd mass is welcomed and cheered by hundreds of people waiting for them. Next, Weaver meets his daughter Jean. She is glad to see her father again. She tells him that things with her boyfriend got all messed up after they left from the base. Weaver says it is ok and asks his daughter not to disappear on him again. Pope assures his Berserkers that they would leave this place soon. Matt looks at the kids and is happy that they might have a school in Charleston... read more.

2x8: Death March recap: The episode begins with second mass on its way to Charleston. In the vehicle, Tom is thinking about the last moments he spent with Ben before leaving. On the bus, Matt wonders how long they will take to reach. Tom tells him it will take them, 12 hours if they don’t take any detours. But Anthony tells Tom that they are low on fuel and so they should scrounge up somewhere; but Tom says a no. Matt hands over his will to his father. He thinks that he might die as everyone was saying that they might not reach Charleston. Tom reassures his son. Tector is driving for Weaver. Hal is driving with Poe and Maggie.

And he tells her about how he was contacted by the Red Eye through his spikes. As they are walking, their spikes glow and they realize that some skitters are around nearby. But they aren’t the rebels. Just then the overlord arrives and Karen looks happy. She tells Ben that the overlord has been in contact with the rebel leader. Ben is visibly scared. Karen has got back her harness and she is holding the slug in her hands. She wants Ben to go with her and get himself harnessed... read more.

They rush him to Anne... read more.
