(:-) Yeah, Did you see it last night??. Old Man Crawford FINALLY got his, Even though I sort of felt sorry for him. His youngest son went out bad too...Too many good guys getting killed. So I cant wait to see tonights chapter as well. I think last night was the best one to this point. Hopefully it will only get better.

I' been watching it also.......kinda.

I only was able to catch episodes 1 and 2. From what I have seen its pretty high quality TV, just like Band of Brothers. I think I will have to wait for the re-runs.
I really liked the bombing scene in the very beggining.......if only Spielberg would make a a movie about the 8th Air Force........or the Battle of Britain......or the Korean War....did everyone forget that one?!?!?!?

I've been watching on and off and have had a tough time keeping some of the characters straight.

Sort of like a really loooong X-Files.

Not really sure if I like it or not yet.

How many more are there?

NO It just seems for some reason, Perhaps because it was not such a prolonged conflict,
And that it was only fought on one theatre of action. KOREA. That most folks prefer to leave it to the way side. OR perhaps it was not a very spectacular war. i.e. T.V. etc. Anyway this show is definanely an improvement over the other two shows that SCI-FI had on earlier last week. I mean they were so Aweful, That I could only stand to watch it for about 30 minutes
i.e. Terrible Acting, Screen play, etc, I mean it really Stunk !!! So yeah this one is a vast improvement. And it does keep you on the edge of your seats.

Well Folks the end is near, And the show keeps getting better. WOW quiet a few suprises as well... Last nights big suprise was really cool. Folks just keep under-estimating the capabiluities of the visitors. And... Allie has quiet a few suprise in store too. Too bad about Erick Crawford though. He was just starting to understand the truth... BUT I still wonder what the whole pictuire is all about. Any ideas here ???

Well, was the ending a let-down for anyone? Did anything really happen over the 20 hours of the show? Guess I was expecting more of a 'big ending.'

I really liked the first episode and the next couple were pretty good, but I lost interest by the 5th one and only watched bits and pieces from then on...

I was reading the novel along with watching the mini-series - so - I liked it a bit more. The ending wasn't quite what I would have liked to have happened, but it was okay on TV. On the flip-side, Colonel Crawford in the book was no where as intimidating as the actor who portrayed him on TV. This instance, the imagination was bettered by the television...
