While mrs. stampeder and I enjoyed it and believe it has promise, we found the segments of sensitive, interpersonal character exposition a bit time-consuming and tedious, tending to drain suspense from the fact that THERE'S A GIANT UFO OUT THERE PEOPLE!!!

Lots of additional pauses happened as we came across a good variety of Vancouver-based actors and bit players in this show: "That guy was in Robson Arms!", "Hey, he was in Da Vinci!", "Look, there's a Stargate guy...", "That dude was on jPod!", "Remember him from Intelligence?", and on and on...
The busty, blue-eyed, blonde recruiter chick looks very familiar, like a younger Fiona Forbes (Urban Rush host on cable in Vancouver area). We cannot remember where we've seen her, but she's not the gal from jPod, right?
I'm optimistic that this series will improve with time if it gets the chance.
