Invasion

Earth is visited by an alien species that threatens humanity’s existence. Events unfold in real time through the eyes of five ordinary people across the globe as they struggle to make sense of the chaos unraveling around them.
Well, this show isn’t about aliens, it’s about people and their very usual problems in a normal life, it’s a psychological drama for sure with a lot of closed up shots of actors faces , not a typical alien invasion thriller. The thing is you know there are some presence around, something’s definitely there, causing some sorts of problem ,nose blinding kids, local power surges, people go missing, etc, but you don’t see what’s causing them. You’re waiting for some big invasion , finally something or someone alien to show up, but nothing of that sort would happen, basically nothing happens! To be honest I don’t get why the creators of the show needed aliens at all, where an engineer girl in Japan deals with sexist people in the work place, or a normal couple living in Long island have marital discord ,a kid in London struggles with bullies at school and things like that, you know the guys who made Big Little Lies did address all of those problems and even more and they didn’t need to get aliens to invade earth!! There are rumors about a head spinning budget of $200m were spent on the show, but I really couldn’t figure out what or where they spent that money on, except maybe traveling all around the world gobbled up most of that money!! So if you’re looking for a Fallen sky type of show, wrong address, but if you want to see how people deal with their usual problems, amotinos and relationships struggles, while there are some invisible beings lurking around, causing a few problems but not very big though so people have plenty of time to sort out their personal issues first , then yes! That’s the one.!
