Follows typical tv formulas. Too much trying to show that "normal" life can exist while everyone is being hunted down by aliens. Doesn't work. It'll have to get a lot more down and dirty pretty soon.
Just my $.02, but the mechs were probably developed by a race behind the invasion and the six legged guys are slaves/mercenaries from a conquered race. The story line will involve a slow developing aliance between the six-legged mercs and humans to defeat the main baddies. Oh, this might have already been thrown out. If so, then I second that.
