    Am I imagining that there has already been a TV show called Project Blue Book. I know there was Dark Skies, but I seem to remember an earlier, lighter series.

    I used to watch Project UFO in the 70's/early 80's when I was a kid. I think that was supposedly based on actual Blue Book investigations but it's decades ago so my memory's a bit vague about it

    Only watched the first two episodes so far, not bad.

    Took me ages to realise where I recognised the actor playing Dr. Hynek from..."Dave Allen at Peace". :)

    Well it's pretty watchable but basically period X-files. Hynek's real life story is a lot more complex but Aidan Gillen is great value..

    Couldn't agree more.

    I've made it as far as episode 6 now and it's good, but not "great". Worth watching but I don't think I'll be watching them a second time anytime soon.

    Hmm, with one episode of season 1 to go I don't think I'll be bothering with season 2 when it starts.

    It's OK, but it just sort of bumbles along not really getting anywhere fast...


    EDIT: Final episode of season 1 was a bit better than the preceding episodes, but still fell a bit flat.

    It just seems like the show was trying too hard to tap into that X-Files/conspiracy vibe, rather than forging its own identity and ended up falling flat on its face. All form and no real substance.

    I'd give it maybe 4.5/10 overall (mainly for the production and special effects). I'll definitely be giving season 2 a miss.

    im really enjoying this show.

    the show is a bit like a prequel to the xfiles.

    I've seen the first couple of episodes at UK pace... the first one left me feeling a bit hmmmm not sure I like this but I thought the second was a lot better. It's definitely coming across like they're almost trying to make an X Files prequel out of it and, looking at it from that kind of angle, I like it more than I did the X Files when they brought that back recently.
    I'll see how it goes over the next couple of episodes but I think I'll stick it out for now, at least, and see how it develops

    5 eps in and it's growing on me more each week. I think it's pretty decent so far. I like the Cold War stuff that's going on around everything else, it's helping support/feed the whole paranoid/who do you trust? element and I think it works well. It does feel very much like The X Files but a bit more focused seeing as it's all about the UFOs rather than having a mix of other esoteric tangents thrown in aswell. Aiden Gillen's good in it. I'll definitely be seeing this first season through to the end, hopefully it's going to leave me wanting more when it finishes
