War of the Worlds

I have a feeling hardly anyone watches the Epix channel, but they have lots of good series there, including War of the Worlds, which is the latest retelling of the famous H.G. Wells novel.  This version is set in England and France and stars Gabriel Byrne as a professor trying to navigate an alien invasion that has nearly completely wiped out the human population.

The show has is very cinematic, well-written, with a soundtrack that orchestrates a persistent feeling of dread. As robotic killer dogs hunt down the remaining humans, we follow a ragtag assortment of Europeans struggling to survive and find a way to defeat a relentless enemy.

Highly recommended!

The show is now in its second season, but here is a trailer for Season 1:
