I recently watched a couple of episodes and discovered it was a whole lot more benign than I thought it was. I’m more of the “Aliens” alien type. The bigger, the badder, the better. Alien vs. Predator was like Sci-Fi overdrive on steroids. You just didn’t know who to pull for. They were both bad to the Borg.
Main character, Tom Mason, (Noah Wylie – Dr. John Carter on ER) is a history professor in Boston who becomes the leader of soldiers and civilians who line up to battle an invading alien force. (I like it already) The Boston resistance is called the “2nd Mass” (likely after the 2nd Massachusetts who fought at Antietam). They are a rag-tag group of civilian fighters, out-raygunned from day one. They plan to take back Earth one bloody bag of Aliens at a time.
