invasion: beware

if this is the film that has just been released by mosaic on dvd (mosaic a choices uk company)

then even a a choices employee i cant defend this film...its TERRIBLE

sorry but the casing shows a huge bug blowing up the whitehouse (independance day style, infact i reckon the pic steals the ID effect) but that aint in the film. on the back pics of cities being destroyed...aint in the film...its just a boring pointless story, follows one guy (sort of like WOTW but with none of the good bits)

i would put this film on par with Dracula 3000, hope that says it all

Its the recent US tv series Invasion and it's my personaly favourite of this seasons alien Sci-Fi programmes. As said it does have quite a slow start but it's really ramped it up in the last couple of episodes. Definately worth a look in.

Its the US series, created by Shaun Cassidy (American Gothic).

And it's *superb*. SLow to begin with, but stick with it - my favourite of the new sci-fi shows in the US at the moment too.

That film is WOTW. It is also known as Invasion.

Slow is not the word, I'm still waiting for something to actually happen! If you thought lost was slow, that's light a hyperactive show compared to this

As a fan, i'm enjoying these made-for-C4 trailers - William Fichtner is in fine creepy form...

Nah, according to the ABC website it is indeed 11th Jan. Dammit.

For those of you contemplating starting watching it on C4, i'd say at least hold on until episode 10 which features one of the heaviest scenes in a primetime show i've ever seen.

When something happens, boy does it happen...

Yeah, they're very well done and set the tone of the series nicely.

I'm glad they are showing the first three episodes tonight because if it is really slow to get going, then I doubt I would stick with it.
