Very well done. Has X-Files undertones but more creepy and frightening. Just UFO lore stuff here, folks. Nothing else. Stories are intriguing, based on actual events but embellished and dramatized for entertainment value. Nothing wrong with that. Two strong lead characters with a brilliant working relationship. Both are equally skeptical as well as open-minded to incredible possibilities. The supporting characters are just as brilliant and provide equally interesting back stories. Everything knits together very well. This is the way TV ought to be.

This show is awesome. It tells a great story but roots most of it's accounts and information in actual events just imbelished dramatized and in different order lol. Including the project paperclip Nazi scientists that came to this country after WW2. It follows actual events and accounts reported to and during project bluebook as case files, throughly dramatized with cooler stories attached to them It's Amazing and a great story to watch .
