Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Sprung from the mind of X-Files writer Glen Morgan, Intruders makes a concerted effort to be creepy, and, in many ways, that thoughtfulness pays off. The series' initial moments are both artful and awful, and the first episode concludes with a well-timed sense of dread. But everything in between is less compelling -- and needlessly confusing -- taking Intruders from a "must-see" to a "maybe."

Simm, a British actor, is more or less believable as an American cop (albeit bearing a nagging resemblance to fellow English actor Martin Freeman), and you instantly relate to him as a likable hero. But the "villains" elicit a far less visceral response, mainly because the series wants to keep their motivations as murky as possible.
