Episode  4 – Grace

Summary:

Things I loved about this episode…

  • Max wants to fight.
  • The old man who gives Max the radio job. I think he’s called Uncle Scott.
  • Skidders sleeping.  Apparently they are like bats.
  • Skidders give off radio waves.
  • The hot religous pre med student.
  • The creepy look Mike get’s when he realizes his son is looking at the alien, saying “father”.
  • Mike getting serious with his M16.  He’s my kind of negotiator. Then it passes out, and the radio static stops.
  • Anne is also pretty cute.
  • Gas grenade bombs.  Sweet.
  • Harness kids with guns.  Very smark aliens.  People will hesitate before shooting kids, even if they are salved.
  • Skidder on the wall in the motorcycle shop.  Very nice special effects.
  • Human endurance, no matter how bad it gets, there are things to be thankful for.

Things that I didn’t like about this episode…

  • Tom is too easy to convince not to go get Ben.
  • The recon team just got back and they are too clean. Come on, you’ve been walking for hours, rub some dirt on.
  • You let Pope go back to get gas with just one other dude?
  • Dr. Harriws is a D*ck but I agree with him that they should kill the damn alien.
  • Holy crap, Mike’s kid is a slave still.  Poor Mike. And the skidder can talk through the slave. Poor Mike, he lost his kid.
  • Some of the slave kids look a little chubby.  What have they been eating?
  • So do some of the civilians. (look chubby I mean)
