"Well, Simon [co-creator Simon Kinberg] and I really connected over HG Wells' 'The War of the Worlds,' but then even more so, over Orson Welles' radio play," Weil said.
"To us, the purported experience that folks had when they first listened to that radio play of not knowing whether something was real or fiction, was sort of a North Star for us. We wanted to tell a story that felt as real as could be. That, if you or I were in this scenario and in this situation, what would we choose? Not what would Tom Cruise choose or Will Smith choose, but, what would we choose?"
"Oh yes," he laughed. "Science fiction to me, is optimism, it's hope. It's an exhortation of how we may, as a society, be living and how we could be living. The best science fiction is one that ultimately feels hopeful. That ultimately purports connectivity, innovation and growth. And so, I love stories that profess that. 'Ex Machina' and 'Under the Skin' were fantastic and '2001: A Space Odyssey' is always my go to."
"Invasion" follows the events surrounding a number of different people, including a young communications scientist who works at the fictional national Japanese space agency JASA, a wealthy, well-educated Middle Eastern family living in the United States, a U.S. serviceman on active duty probably in South-Central Asia and a group of English school kids on a field trip.
Before long, we learn that Japanese scientist Mitsuki Yamato (Shiori Kutsuna) has lost her secret gay lover, astronaut Yui (Naoko Mori), as the space station she was aboard in Earth orbit is destroyed by mysterious forces. Ahmed Malik (Firas Nassar), the husband in an upper middle class family, is having an affair with another woman who is pregnant with his child. His wife, Aneesha Malik (Golshifteh Farahani), is a Harvard-educated doctor and has only just discovered her husband's infidelity. And Trevante (Shamier Anderson) is the U.S. Navy SEAL on deployment in Afghanistan and loses his entire unit in an attack with an unknown force.
You are watching the series exactly as I was and feeling the same way. Next two episodes fixed it for me, while first two put me off.I've watched the first two episodes and this could be straight out of the Coronation Street rejects pile. Too many threads and characters to bond with any one of them and they ALL have tragic storylines or backgrounds. Yawn. This could be a Netflix series for all it's overwrought 'drama'.
I want aliens, and I want them now!
More specifically, I want them to attack the school children and eat Monty.
Yes, snacks. It was definitely a hungry one. Poor old lady was bony and tasted awful. Daddy-o same thing. Old guy a bit better, but nothing tastes as good as those sweet little kids. Buwahahaha.What was a single alien doing, rummaging around in a house set in the middle of nowhere? Looking for snacks?
Because that metal is alien and it's poisonous on them. It kind of makes sense that they first drop these monsters and when they're finished with the business, they can be killed off ... leaving nice, cleared planet for the colonisation effort.3. How is it that firearms couldn't stop the attack, yet an improvised knife did the trick?
Monty was not eaten.
It looks as of they're trying to paint him as a victim of his upbringing. Considering that child psychologists and therapy sessions might be in short supply here, Monty's path to creephood doesn't matter to me. I still want him taken out, preferably in a very painful way.Monty didn't get run over,
I'm betting on an Alien scenario. Breakfast, anyone?Daddy-o finally caught the reality. You get aliens material in your body and you're effed. What I'm expecting is turning or mutation or something similar because there has to be a reason for the alien stuff to remain alive inside the body.
Zombies are more dangerous than aliens in the early stages of the apocalypse. Walkers look like handicapped humans until one takes its first bite out of you. Even then, depending on what Universe you inhabit, you may not know how to put them down.if the aliens had been zombies, everything would have been okay. But since it's aliens, everyone are living in a denial.
The aliens encountered, thus far, appear to be some sort of predator species released by the invaders to clean up whatever their advanced weapons of mass destruction have missed. I don't think the brain bugs have slithered out of their ships yet.I'm not expert, but the aliens: doggies, tripod, the worm are they part of the same species or are they part of advance force?
