Dividing Bar

This series boasts some normally superb young actors, but even they seem a little flat in this drama. I was quite irritated by the constant intrusion of the girl narrator (Allie) with her pearls of fatuous cod philosophy and meaningless New Age tripe. At one point, she informs us that people do evil things only because they are afraid. Oh really? The Holocaust? It was a cry for help, darlings! It really goes to show how utterly shallow the Hollywood set are. Worse, Allie turns out to be the whole point of the aliens' breeding programme. That's right. All they wanted was a human-alien hybrid with a personality bypass, whose scintillating conversation is an uninterrupted flow of nauseating pseudo-profound psychobabble. (This apparently being the next step in the evolution of life.) Oh, and she has magical powers - though it takes her 'a lot of energy' to 'manifest' them. Yawn! The opening few episodes were intriguing (if you subtract Allie's narration), but it leads finally to banality on an epic scale. A huge disappointment.

Dividing Bar

A very involving marathon of a series, interesting even if you got weary of the X-Files slant on abductions. It boasts a whole hoard of some of the best-looking and talented young actors of our time.

The series does have a way of taking over your life for 10 nights straight.
