Season 1
Invasion

Critics Consensus

Invasion attempts a slow burn but inadvertently lets its tension completely fizzle out with leaden pacing that will leave viewers impatient for the alien apocalypse to finally arrive.

    This show is God awful. Once you finally get a look at the alien and how it was defeated, it made me wonder how hummers with mounted guns didn't make at least one kill. Save yourself the time and pass this one over.

    Some of the human stories are good, The Chinese one is awful, The military one is okay but the way Shamier Anderson acts in it towards his rescuer is vile. The school children story is good, but the driver should have lived, overall it is okay

    It's sooooo slow. Too many sub-plots that I am not invested in. More aliens and more carnage is the key to higher ratings. I'm done

    The sorriest excuse for a science fiction show ever. There is so. much. melodrama. before even the second episode. Do something already! All the characters could use therapy so we don't have to be subjected to their nonsense emotions and can instead be entertained.

    One of the most poorly written alien invasion shows I've ever seen. Motivations and reactions are completely unrealistic. No one seems to be very curious at all what's going on in the world in general and it's never revealed. Family shows up at a military shelter after being on the road during an alien invasion. You think the first questions out of their mouths would be "what's going on? How is the country doing? Is it like this everywhere?" Nope. All they want to do is sit down and have family drama. WTF?

    The Japanese girl is one of the most annoying characters in the history of TV. She's apparently some kind of genius who understands everything immediately, but she *never* tells anyone around her anything, which leads them to think she's nuts. She's also extremely emotional, but somehow never makes mistakes. Laughable writing. All the men around her are completely incompetent for some reason, all they ever do is get in her way, and she is the only one who understands what's going on. This show tries too hard to be something it's not.

    Worst show ever. Too many story lines. Will take 1000 years to make any sense of these micro movements in story lines. Nothing every happens. Solider is clueless nobody is dealing with the aliens. They are acting as if this is whales on a beach.

    This is the most boring television I have ever seen and I have watch 5 day test matches. Slow most likely cost a fortune , the director is great at stretching things out, do your yourself a favor and seriously watch every 2nd episode and its almost bearable.

    Wast of time! You'll realize you went too far, and then start clicking the fast forward to just finish the damn thing. Way too sappy, you'll never get the feeling there is any Invasion, other than the Invasion crappy writing, weak characters, and some typical PC Wokeism in the works.

    I don't know how I feel about this show. My problem is that it's very very very very very slow and it JUST started picking up speed a few episodes ago. Each episode is basically the same thing shown in different ways - people fleeing. There's no end goal - it's just doom and dispairs. After the first few episodes, it starts becoming boring and repetitive. This show is the king of all slow burns.
