          There are NO aliens but there is a God which is the Lord Jesus Christ. I do not BELIEVE in any aliens but I believe in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

                      Local58 reminds me of another series I’ve read about with a similar concept. If you’ve ever heard of “Channel7” it’s kind of a longer series than what Local58 had shown. Perhaps Channel7 and Local58 could have a _chronological_ continuity that could show a relative plotline.

                            *tosses in her two cents*

                            Much as I do get chills thinking about this series, and it's well put-together... I just don't buy that the "Contingency" video would have been made by Americans and simply rebroadcast.

                            Here's the thing: the American mindset has always been about the ideal of freedom, and how they are willing to do whatever it takes to preserve it. It's something we gloat about and wave around like a twirling baton... It's part of what makes the "stereotypical American" so annoying. ^^;

                            It would be more likely that a broadcast of this nature would instruct people where to find shelter and that now is the time for regular Americans to take up arms to defend themselves. Even if they are massively outnumbered, the possibility of even a handful of people surviving to carry on American ideals is still worth fighting for.

                            That said - maybe the aliens took such a broadcast and rewrote it, after studying our other broadcasts for the last several years? After all, do you see any photographed humans in this announcement? Lack of human features to recognize and empathize with? The drawings are rather crude too.

                            Also, rather curious that they went through the effort of making a cartoon at all. Yeah, it adds to the creep factor, but what do aliens understand about human children? Maybe that they like cartoons, but then why have a skeleton creature as the main character - instead of an animal, like they would have observed in other broadcasts?

                            I dunno...

                            Like I said, this is definitely a well done and creepy series, but I always had my doubts about that "Contingency" film being something actually made by the in-universe American government. *shrug*

When the driver crashes, the GPS says "you have reached your destination" like something has approached the car. (Do they have trackers?)(also how was the dash cam footage recovered?)
