If you are not familiar with this series maybe you aren’t a sci fi fan. That is too bad because this series starring the familiar face of Noah Wyle of ER fame will have most on the edge of their seats. It is an apocalypse style story with an alien angle thrown in for good measure. An alien attach has left the planet and its inhabitants in a precarious state. Six months after the initial attack some of the survivors have gathered together around Earth’s major cities and have begun to fight back. Each day is a test of survival for these brave few who have decided to protect their fellow human survivors. The show is a winner as it has good stories and strong acting.
