I watched last night. I thought it was pretty well done from a scientific point of view. I too, agree with you, on being disappointed on the aliens might not be the bad guys, lack of direction in production.
Is it just me, or does it seem like every show featuring the possibility of alien contact, always focuses on them being the bad guys, and us the good
guys. I would like to see a little balance in how people are being programmed to fear contact.
