I thought it was going to be a remake but the series is a sequel to the movie. There are a few things I don't like about it production wise, but I like the story and they keep it moving right along. This is the kind of Si Fi I like, an alien with superior technology comes to Earth to save us from our selves.
P.S. It is on show time.

Never did see the original movie, I should perhaps one day.
And haven't heard even of the show yet, but sounds like something I might like. Have to see later if I get Showtime. If I did I think I would have noticed ads for this.
Instead however I do have the CTV Sci-Fi channel with my cable package. What do they play literally almost every night? Elementary!!??? Doesn't appeal at all, and pretty darn sure it is not a Sci-Fi show! Seriously, almost every night...

It's kind of cool, they pay homage to Bowie by resurrecting Thomas Jerome Newton and the second episode is titled " Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed".

Is this yet another SF 'everyone is black' show?
