What's weird is... see I'm a huge Noah Wyle fan, to the point where most of you would probably be like "really? him?" He's always been my favorite TV actor, Carter was by far my fave ER character (he's mostly what kept me watching the last couple years that I bothered to), I related to him quite a bit. The first feature spec script I ever wrote, I did so with him in mind for the lead, I even submitted it to his production company (I was on the WB lot one day via my messenger job and I literally handed the script right to Wyle's father-in-law, his partner), of course they declined. Despite all this, I still haven't been able to drum up much interest to watch this, I don't know why
I'm not sure if it because it just seems like the idea's been sooo done to death over the years or what (though true, they are taking a little bit different approach in that the series picks up well after the initial alien attack).
