First off, the show is produced by Ridley Scott (yep, that guy from Bladerunner fame) and company Scott Free. So there is some sci-fi cache right off
The show also has elements of the classic terror tales! "Strange bugs climbing in your ear turning you into a teetotalling, vegetarian, asexual,
argumentative, Conservative Republican" is only part of the scary part. The other is the tension the show builds and releases through dark humor. Then
comes the next duh-duh-duh moment.
There, like any sci-fi, are also the character driven aspects to this show. At first you are not sure what is going on then it starts to make sense. A
toxoplasmotic ant from outer space turning the host into zombies to only die in a horrible stroke has a profound effect on the characters involved.
The social jab is classic! Last night episode had, "Hey let's name that after Ronald Reagan!" which was lmao funny! Now people are starting to notice
things about each other--changes, their own foibles, etc. But that seems like a good reason to make light of politics instead of the main focus. This
show is sci-fi.
I've caught 3 episodes so far and have enjoyed them! I will have to get caught up (either repeats or On Demand). Lots of rain last night so that was a
good excuse to stay in watch some TV.
