The pacing is ridiculous. Five episodes in there's barely mystery left. I'm guessing there will be the 4th Evil Alien?
Tyler Blackburn got a little moment to squeeze out some acting and then went back to being wooden. I'd rather he was just making out with someone.

Interview with Tyler Blackburn and Michael Vlamis.
It's nice to see they get along well. They have a kind of a brotherly vibe, which is a bit weird I guess. Whoever said Vlamis is an attention whore was right, the guy is clearly thirsy for attention from fangirls and talks about being happy to be in gifs and part of a ship. They went to see Love, Simon together, which is cute.
Either way, this show is a bomb.

r33 The actress playing the new sheriff, Rosa Arredondo, kicks ass but hasn't really featured as much so far. I watched the show with one eye in the beginning so I might have missed a scene or two. She oozes that New York boss energy so I hope we see more of her going forward.
r34 There was a nice talk (two talks, actually) between a straight guy and a gay guy about bullying and coming out, which you don't really see that often on TV; just a straight guy shutting up and letting the gay guy tell his story. So it's worth watching the most recent episode for that alone, in my opinion.

Yeah, Sadler had some great scenes in Seasons 1 & 2.
In Season 1, Sadler brought a quiet menace to the Sheriff when he was hunting Max, Michael & Isobel.
He also had some good scenes in Season 2 when he was investigating Alex's death and dealing with the loss of the Sheriff's job.
But I thought the writers degraded his character in Season 3 when they had Valenti taking a job with that cheesy singing band.

The one problem I have with the show is that it lacks the group chemistry. In the original, once everyone knew, or at least Maria knew, they constantly hung out as a group. I know it was high school, but still. Everyone knows that Liz knows but we only had a hostile interaction and Isobel apoligizing to Liz, not a group working together.

R228, if you are a gay man and don’t know who Brian Stokes Mitchell (once Brian Mitchell during Mail and Kiss of the Spider Woman) then you should be seriously ashamed and turn in your gay card.
He is a Tony-Award winning actor with one of the most thrilling voices of the past 50 years. His portrayal of Coalhouse made him a bona fide star and his duet with Audra McDonald, “Wheels of a Dream,” became an instant classic. (He reteamed with Audra for the fascinating yet very problematic Shuffle Along in 2016).
He received consecutive Tony nominations for Ragtime, Kiss Me, Kate (won), King Hedley II and Man of La Mancha.

I want to like this show because I enjoyed the original but this version is missing the silliness and the actor chemistry and it doesn't even have an interesting plot to back it up. I was hoping once they drop the Rosa plotline they'd go with the government conspiracies and FBI chasing aliens, the White Room torture etc but the only human villain so far left town in this episode without doing anything to harm the aliens and it doesn't look like anyone above him (FBI?) is even involved. At this point I'd only be watching for the gays but the gays are not interacting and it looks like they are building up Michael and Maria's future romance. If the next episode doesn't deliver on either the plot or the gays, I think I'm gonna drop this mess like a hot potato.

Yes, Alex's dad being run out of town feels like it should be a scene in the final episode of the season *after* he has done some real damage to the aliens. But his investigation of the aliens never really got the air time it deserved, and this seems like the writers nipping a storyline in the bud. I actually see chemistry between Michael and Maria, so if they do this triangle right, it could be quite interesting.

I wasn't saying it WAS a Trumpster hat, I was just agreeing with R283 that the style of it is ugly and that it *reminds* me of the MAGA hats.

Actually, I prefer Kyle/Alex... Michael is unreliable and a hot mess.

Who wants this dialog? Michael: "So you wanna know who I am... or you wanna know what I am?" Alex: "Yes." Scene ends... What?!

So is the consensus here that it is not as good as the original?

R300 Writing and acting are both awful. But it's a pretty gay trainwreck, so it's hard to look away.

Of course they had to go and make Michael hook up with Maria, can't have their token bisexual guy be just GAY. Looks like it was just a one night stand so hopefully no boring love triangle.
I don't completely understand what's happening in the plot though. How do they all already know? Kyle knows Alex is in love with Michael, Alex knows everyone is an alien... blah... Did it all happen behind the scenes? Am I missing something? Is Isobel's husband a psycho or an alien? Can they just show us Michael and Alex fuck again so I can forget that there's plot?

R305 Hopefully, the sex will happen next episode after they finish their cut off conversation. It's been a long dry spell for Alex.

I think he's alien, but a rival species of Isobel, Max, and Michael's species.

Yeah it feels weird how very quickly they sped into everyone knowing and immediately accepting aliens walk among them without any hesitation. It feels jarring.
And even Kyle knowing that Alex and Michael were together when say Maria has no idea also felt pretty jarring.
The execution of how this show has written often leaves you wanting.
Was this the episode Shiri directed? I did think the directing felt nice.

I doubt Isobels husband is the 4th alien, he seemed to honestly have no clue that Isobel was an alien or anything supernatural was going on til this episode. None his actions feel consistent with that to, though you never know with this show. As one poster cleverly said you couldn't be surprised if they suddenly reveal Kyle is a werewolf.

Shiri did her best with a script that was all over the place. The odd time jump (was it six weeks or something) really makes this episode feel like it should be the return episode after a hiatus. The character dynamics have changed significantly. Alex is now the one in charge of this alien project and Kyle just kind of roll over for this coup? But I like the opportunity for more Kyle/Alex bonding. Having Isobel gone (she's not missed so can they drag out her return?) give more time to the bromance between Max and Michael! Of course, Maria getting herself in between Malex feels more like a nod to the old show than anything else since they have more of a friend chemistry here. All the romantic tension is between Malex, so she can only ever be a third wheel anyway.

Are you sure about that?? I mean, it's only the first season.

R316 I'm just saying there is some flirtation/sex but no serious romantic tension between Michael and Maria so far compared to stacked history of angst and forbidden love between Malex. So unless that changes, Maria is no competition to Alex.

This show finished fliming before any episode aired. They didn't know what the reaction to Michael and Alex was going to be. I fully believe that why Michael is bi and why they're floating the idea that Michael and Maria will happen beyond a one night stand. While keeping Michael and Alex dangling.
If there was a blacklash they would "fix it" in season two and fully do Michael and Maria. It's kind of transparent and honestly predictable once they started saying he was bi in interviews.

Bad writing is bad. At this point I'm only watching because I've a crush for Mike. But if Maria and him become a thing I'll just stop. I'm too much of a heterophobe for that shit.
