Ever since the X-files (the original series) went away, it’s been hard to find a good series that combines sci-fi with mysteries and extraterrestrials. This show really hits the mark on all three. The acting is very good (you believe these are real people not actors) and the stories are engrossing. This is not just a bunch of special effects and goofy stories however, I suspect for many people it will seem slow with too much dialogue.Sadly a lot of shows on TV today are simply dumb and do not ask much of the viewer in terms of thought. If you actually read books and newspapers (you’re probably over 40 years old) you’ll like this show. For those of us who do believe “something is out there” it gets you thinking about many things we will probably never understand. The episodes move along nicely and keep you wanting more. This show is for people with a mind that wants to be challenged. That leaves out a lot of people but for those of you who are looking for something intelligent and interesting, it is a great choice,

Print/Audio Quality

The print is presented in 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 with a 1:85:1 aspect ratio. The print looks very good throughout without any apparent issues. Colors are vibrant and carry pop which brings out the fine details. The detailed scenes stand out very well. Blacks are deep. I found the print to be crystal clear with no artifacts or print damage. The darker tones of the film looks great with the appropriate lighting making this film standout.

The audio is presented in a DTS-HD MA lossless 5.1 mix. This is a very immersive soundtrack during the action sequences. This is a film where there is a lot of dialogue. Those looking for an audio mix that will take advantage of your equipment, this is the film for you. This is a very well done audio presentation that has dynamic range with the sound effects and a lot of panning from speaker to speaker. Dialogue is clean and crisp through the center channel.

Final Thoughts

Each episode seems to increase the suspense – its simply gripping! This is one of those shows that I look forward to each week.
