Odd mix of sci-fi, politics is a mockery of modern problems.

Good cinema, just not for all maybe

Anyone watching this TV-show should know that it is full of political references. It's a lot of fun if you get those, while if you happen to have no idea about Republicans and Democrats, it'll just bore you to death. See, the only other thing that's in the TV-show is aliens, and that's not enough to last you 12 episodes. Btw, the alien ants are more disgusting than scary, so you're unlikely to have nightmares after this. I loved the main idea, that extremist views of any kind make us dumb and prevent us from cooperating. Food for thought for many people, if you ask me.
