Maybe because the aliens in charge don't want to arm them for fear of uprising.
But I might be giving the show too much credit.
That is the other predictable factor. Army ants are used by the ruling class, similar to how the kids are being controlled.


Next thing you know, they are going to use the kids as their fighting force, not only because of declining number of skidders but to also demoralize the resistance.

Predictable.

My first guess was that the kids were operating the Mechs. Make the conquered people control themselves, as you mentioned. Probably wrong, but really not interested enough in the show to dig deeper yet.

I wondered if they would make the humans have contact with the skidders at some point. When they killed one and said, "I wonder what it's thinking now," I thought, "Oh no, I bet they catch one and communicate with it and it becomes friends with them."

Now that's creative and it would be one hell of a twist.

Yuck. We've seen enough of this kind of stuff. It's not at all creative.

What's creative is an alien race that is NOT bipedal for once. Let's not ruin this by humanizing them.

Watch it. It is Sci-Fi, and it's not horrific. That alone warrants a viewing.

At the end we had little kid acting all Brent Spinner as his eyes opened the same time as the alien eyes.

THEN...we have this group of aliens who traveled fifteen uber zillion miles to get here and the best tech they have for scavaging is 12 year old really slow kids hooked up to big slugs. Kind of like "Signs" where the aliens traveled fifteen uber zillion miles and couldn't open the cellar door.

THEN...I am supposed to belive the biggest bad ass on the show is, in real life, a "culinary artist." And that he can turn Spam into fillet mignon. Kind of like all the "best chef" shows on the food channel.

Finally, eye candy is drug away by 12 year old Zombies so that we can begin the soap opera triangle between Noah's son, the soon-to-be rescued eye candy, and former culinary artist's brother's sex slave. Much like every day time soap on television.

Yeah, last nite was all good .

my thoughts exactly.
since the critics are praising it....I'm prepared to hate it. seems like it always works out that way for me. critics hate it.....I love it. guess I just have bad taste.

I know...

It truly is a dying genre on TV. And that, imo, is unfortunate.
