Iím a few episodes in. I could care less about sfx (I mean, I can put up with Babylon 5) but so far it seems very derivative of Falling Skies (alien invasion in which both the apparent invader race and now humans are taken over and controlled by symbionts) and maybe Halo (Guilty Spark, along with the primary alien fighter ship design being a grungy-looking Banshee). But thereís nothing new under the sun - Halo didnít come up with alien-drone-that-guides-the-character either - and if itís used to say something new or interesting, thatís all that matters. As you say this is pretty slow-paced and even by episode 3 not a lot has happened so itís hard to tell yet.
A few minutes into the first episode they make it very clear the black guy is the one who canít swim. I really really hope that was setup for some necessary future plot point and not... anything else.
