The "alien invasion" genre of TV shows and movies is one that has a seemingly endless amount of entries in it. Whether it be more small-scale products like Signs or big-budget blockbusters like Independence Day, many have asked the same question: What would happen if an extraterrestrial race showed up at our front door? What if they weren't friendly?
Invasion, a new show premiering today on AppleTV+, is the latest show to ponder that question.
"An alien invasion is seen through the different perspectives of various people on different continents across the world" reads Apple's official description of the show. Spreading the characters out across the world is a tactic that mostly works to the show's benefit but can also serve as a massive anchor to potential character development.
