@monk_juice.....for the life of me I don't know how you think finding the missing son is the storyline of this show. Guess you missed the part where the Earth was invaded by some unknown entity which is now in complete control of our society.
Finding the son is the vehicle that will take us outside the "wall" and open up the storyline to more elaborate twists and turns. Guess you missed that part, too.

As we near the end of the first season, I have to say that this is one of the best new shows that I'very seen in a while. The cast, of course, is top notch; and the storyline just continues to steadily draw you in deeper and deeper! The writing is excellent, building solid, believable characters at a steady pace, and the production as a whole is really above average! Great news that it will return for another, even longer season!

It's been OK, but if it wasn't for the promise from Cuse that the plot will actually advance (unlike Lost) I don't think I would still be watching.

the do need to bring the aliens in more. If they want to keep going. At least a little bit of them. Like Arthur said , we won't be seeing the war that took us down. but they do need to explain how much is left. Are most people dead? What's the deal? is most of the world in ruins. dead? what?. this reminds me of the second v. due to budget you get a occupation story. But this at least doen'st have to compare to that classic first v. So it will do better.

I enjoy the suspense and premise of this show. The characters are worth watching, and caring for, for now. Cathy Baker was excellent! But, as the show progresses, not showing the implied invasion, aliens, or, the factory, for that matter, will ruin the pacing, drama and suspense. Gotta know, what they're fighting for, or else, viewers like me, will start not to care.

Once he finds his son outside the walls? The series is over. That's the real storyline.

Really, really like this show. The pace is excellent as I'm not an "instant gratification" kind of viewer, where I want to know everything about a show right in the first 3 episodes. I'm a viewer who prefers some time spent on an "introduction" period, for lack of a better term, to a show's characters and storyline before getting into the complexities of the plot.
I want to get to "know" the characters and who they are and where they are in their lives before we start bringing in all the plot twists and turns. This gives the characters more depth when the storyline starts to get all complex and elaborate.
I mean, Person of Interest didn't actually get to the real storyline until the 3rd season and Leonard and Penny, of Big Bang Theory, didn't get married in the first season even tho we all know they would eventually tie the knot. It's just a good thing to bring a storyline together gradually, and not all in some kind of heated rush.
Also, the other thing I really appreciate about this show are it's production values. They're all top-notch--acting, scripts, directing, camera work--it's all first rate work. Doesn't matter how good a show is, if the production values aren't up to snuff I just can't watch it.
Anyway, I'm glad to read it's been renewed, and look forward to the rest of this season and next.

Very Good show. Moving slowly and BANG, episode 4 changes something pretty big. This and hard Science "The Expanse" are two of the best shows on right now.
This show has not talked about "the Visitors" or the battles that took place when "Our uninvited Guests" arrived. How the Walls were built or why.
Would be nice to see some flashbacks but that will cost $$$
Great show and my analogies to Nazi occupation of France in WW2 (collaborators and "collecting" works of Art).
The part with the people being "Sent to the Factory" was like Jewish persons going into "the showers"... guess the Visitors like their "guest workers" clear for shipment.
In WW2, millions of persons "volunteers" as "Guest Workers" to allow fighting men in German to joint the Army. Maybe "The Factory" is the same thing... or like the Twilight Zone episode "How to Serve Man" type of deal.
