    I’d say 99% it will be of the original format if it is W/S, as this is not SKY.
    The only thing the times may get mucked about. Or you may not see it for weeks then it will return without advertising.

    Abduction alien thing again, enough already. Maybe...
    Went through a phase of being very interested in The X-Files, Dark Skies, Roswell, Independence Day and so on.
    Visited Groom Lake, Rachel, Little Ale'Inn, Highway 375 Extra-Terrestrial Highway, Black / White Mailbox back in 1997.
    I will be watching Taken but has the premise of the show become tired already ?

    Had to reply to this one! Don't worry everybody, Spielberg takes the UFO subject very seriously. Just to recap, it's about a family's UFO events spanning 50 years. There will be ten 90min programs, I'm looking forward to it immensely!

    I believe it is one of the most expensive series ever produced coming in at around 26 million, but that falls way behind Steven’s other series Band of Brothers which was about 82 million.

    What about C.S.I. on five?
    Although it looks as if it has finished for the time being, and Tagget is on ITV at 9.30 tonight.

    Watched the first 30 minutes or so of this on Saturday night and was bored rigid by it.

    Might try watching it again on Friday in case I was just out of sorts but really felt this was pants. Couldnt believe some of the really naff special effects.

    try and stick with it. i watched the second episode last weekend and it picked up more pace than the first, and is very watchable.
    half an hour of what is probably a 10 - 12 hour programme isnt really giving it a chance.

    I too thought it was slow and thought of recommending it to the guy in General Chat for his insomnia. The only near exciting bit was when the army guy killed his ex-bird and I knew it was coming as she was driving back to her caravan.

    It was OK, nothing special, some cool bits in though like the army going mental and whacking some bird. And the old biddies dying in the spaceship.

    If you are not getting into this program after tonight on BBC1, well I watched the following episode on BBC Choice so it would not ruin an other Saturday nights viewing and it does not get much better. Although a few things do happen.
