War of the Worlds - 2020 Epix Series

Post by HKTackDriver » Tue Mar 03, 2020 11:01 am

I'm surprised that there is no current thread in here already!

This is probably one of the more interesting takes on the classic book. The series starts with hearing that humanity has sent out music into the universe, only to hear a signal back from what we assume is a sentient species. The response received by us was sent with a power source unimaginable to humans. Shortly thereafter, Earth is hit with hundreds of "things" in major cities. (Not spoiling, but your pre 1985 vehicles will come in handy.) The story follows an older doctor with a fractured family, a mother with her two teen kids, their father and the researcher and military folks around her, who are responsible for sending the signals.



The show quickly goes into an extreme SHTF scenario with a quick realization that it's not us vs. us anymore - it's us versus them! The "them" at this point appears to be a type of human killing drone. The series is really well done (currently 3 episodes released) and has a good amount of character building, suspense and wondering what will be coming next. The show doesn't throw everything at you within the first episode, so it is paced really well too. I'm already a HUGE fan of the show, which is much better than the 1988 series, which also had it's good points. Looking forward to the old timey BBC series as well.

You should try to see this one. If only for the uncanny resemblance to certain Boston Dynamics creations you hold dear 8-)

I watched the first one. It went from Contact ripoff to the PAW pretty quick. I guess I will have to watch ep2 to figure the plot. ep1 was mostly and establishment episode.

Got on my service provider and found a 20 min. section of E1. They set the hook and reeled mr in. I subscribed to epix. Now trying to get to E2. E3 is showing today.

Episode 3 was great - still building up a bit, so that's cool. I'm waiting to see how humanity fights back. Seems like they're not doing too well right now!

Just finished Episode 1. I'm hooked. Thanks for putting this on my radar HKTackDriver. How many episodes are free before I give my credit card number to Epix?

The bizarre thing is that I don't have Epix anywhere on any of my services. I did a search for "War of The Worlds" on my DirectTV stream service and got no responses. I gave up and went to look at what was available for play right now and there it was. With no channel assigned. There is only one possible answer: Aliens. They are prepping us for takeover.

Not sure. Image


Are there 3 episodes currently available? Maybe they'll make them all available.

Anyone catch episode 4 last night? It's live on the website at https://www.epix.com/series/war-of-the-worlds

Some interesting plot building still happening. The hospital is abandoned as the terminator dogs raid it. Not all make it out. The mountain top satellite retreat has some interesting developments with a recon mission needed and we learn about some weird brother on sister action. :shock:

I cannot say it enough, I love this show! I hope it gets bigger and gets renewed.

Yea it's only the first three episodes and then you have to pay. I liked the show. But I'm not subscribing to another channel just for one show :roll:
