OK, I saw it... the preview offered by the Sci-Fi channel in Washington, DC November 20. They showed a piece of the first installment and the whole second installment. A mixed bag. Space/UFO soap opera combined with some intelligent portrayal of the impact of abduction phenomena. However, I would say overblown. Written by a person who has a marginal knowledge of ufology and who is also a good writer (Spielberg had input, but the script was written by one man, Leslie Bohem.) So it is complex (the history of several families with kids) and intriguing and perhaps even exciting. But I found myself saying... "reality check" over and over. Shades Close Encounters, ET and even Independence Day with the spectrum of ufology, a la Contact, thrown in for 'good' measure. Have fun!
