- The word "hope" is used quite prominently in one of the ads for the show. This was a word that was the perpetual theme of Obama's Presidential campaign.
- There's a clip of the leader of the aliens telling a TV journalist that he can ask her any question he likes as long as it does not portray the aliens in a negative way. The Obama administration is actively going after FoxNews as they are the one media outlet that is most outspoken in their criticism of his presidency.
- The aliens have won favor among the people of Earth by curing a variety of diseases, and have recruited Earth's youth to serve them unknowingly as spies (as posted on Wikipedia). Obama's pet project is health care reform (curing diseases), he overwhelming won the 18-25 year old demographic to get elected and whitehouse.gov has asked Americans to report "disinformation" to them (unknowingly spying).
The original miniseries and show did have political overtones as well so I wouldn't be surprised if this re-imagined version has similar political overtones. It will be interesting to see how it all pans out. Your thoughts-- Agree? Disagree?
