Watched up to E08 and I’m really enjoying it. Do not watch and expect it to be as the original The War of the Worlds, it’s very different, but at the same time sharing similar elements. It’s perhaps why it’s missing ‘the’ from the beginning of the title and called ‘War of the Worlds’. Strangely, there’s another show running at the same time called The War of the Worlds; this is the one to watch if you’re expecting a show reflecting the original. However, I’m loving this show. It’s a collaboration between the UK & France, and therefore expect subtitles in places. It’s a much simpler show, although that’s probably the incorrect terminology, as it has a great plot which you don’t know where it’s going. After watching 8 episodes, I’m getting the impression it’s nothing to do with the original we all know and love, but something very different. It has an excellent cast and told well. It’s very down to earth without lots of CGI etc. Probably a more realistic version if something like this did happen. I’ve absolutely no complaints about this and I’m sad to see it’s so poorly rated; which I suspect is because people are expecting the original War of the Worlds. Watch this with no preconceived ideas, and you should enjoy it. A solid rating of 8 from me, it’s twisting off in a direction I never would have of suspected. If you want something closer to the original, watch the other show; which I’ve only seen clips of. But, it is definitely based on the original. I’ve marked this in my list as British, when technically it’s not. It’s a collaboration of UK & France, made for American TV. But, I don’t have list for that lol. Enjoy!

good show. really hope there will be a season 2:thumbsup::eyes::fire::wink::ok_hand::smile:

Why is this called War Of The Worlds? 3 episodes in and I haven’t seen 1 key element from the book. Not saying it’s a terrible show, but it feels more like The Walking Dead than War Of The Worlds.

avatar

Not a bad show. Not a good show either. If you have 8 hours to waste (which we all do in our current world ending state), watch it. If you rather paint your wall & watch it dry...well you’ll get the same level of excitement. Maybe this should’ve been done as a 2 hour movie. And that ending...dumb & pointless, explained nothing. But then again there are far worst show out there so that’s a big positive for this show.

You know how the joke is that Indy is the most pointless character in Raiders of the Lost Ark because everything that happens would have happened even if he wasn't there? Well, that's this series. Everything that happens would have happened without the characters so they are all pointless. As are the 8 hours I wasted watching this pile of rubbish!

It does have a Walking Dead feel to it. Bleak and isolating. A lot of the main characters are a bit hard to warm up to and the European aversion to guns is comical. I did enjoy the struggle to explain and decipher the attack. And the use of the Google robots was fun. However the show needed a way better season resolution. I don't appreciate watching 8 episodes and being left so much in the dark at the end. Unless you're fairly desperate for some sci fi, I would pass on this one. P.S. The other version wasn't even watchable.

Really enjoyed it, it was far superior to the dreadful BBC version although it was totally different to the original book which sometimes is a good thing, I hope there is a second series and I don't have to add it to my ever growing list of shows that don't have a conclusion.

I usually don't like to engage with programs using subtitles, but I found them to be barely noticeable with this show. As far as entertainment goes, I was pleasantly surprised. I look forward to season two and the continuation of this story line.

its terrible avoid the other new one is also bad but not at bad as this

A solid 8 from me, don’t watch this hoping to see something even close to the original.... This is a modern day telling of the story and very close to what it would be like, forget your big block buster movie stories and over the top effects. This is a much more simple story, but told from a very very realistic perspective!!!!! Oh!!! And whatever you do, don’t watch the bbc version, it’s terrible..... they played around with the story, but in a horrible way......
