    It's strange to me that none of that was obvious to you...

    I'm still trying to figure out why the Vohm dude answers to "Cochise" and speaks like he's from an old money family.

    Seemed odd to me that the "real" Americans would open fire on Tom's American's without asking questions first. I know it was said that they look like collaborators but still...

    The obvious answer is "humans can't pronounce his name, so they gave him a nickname". As for his speech, maybe the person he learned English from spoke like that. If he had learned it in Charleston he should have a Southern accent.

    Maybe I'm thick as a brick in my old age, but I'm not sure what should be obvious to me? Do you mean all the events that they never told us about that happened in the time between last season and this? Stuff happened, we have no idea why, and they go on as if we are supposed to know. What was obvious?

    Meh, doesn't matter I suppose in the scheme of things. I am liking the show still, and I'm just going with it.

    It was the writers way of retooling for the 2nd season. Time will tell if the retool is the kiss of death, (like every other show) or saved the show.

    You guys haven't moved on to the 3rd episode yet. It addresses Cochise as tivogurl mentioned.

    I think you mean episode 4. This thread for episode 3 is titled incorrectly, and no one made one for episode 4.

    Ep 4 "At All Costs" OAD 6/23/13
    Ep 3 "Badlands" OAD 6/16/13
    Ep 2 "Collateral Damage" OAD 6/9/13
    Ep 1 "On Thin Ice" OAD 6/9/13

    This upcoming Sunday is episode 5

    My issue wasn't with the fact that the humans now know the names of the different races. My issue was the fact that when they were interrogating the blonde sniper, they were using those names with her as if she would know what they are talking about. It was almost as if the writers completely forgot that those names were only known to the people at Charlotte at this point.

    And then in episode 4 they remembered their mistake when Mason explained the names of the two alien factions to POTUS.

    Native Charlestonians don't have much of a southern accent. I mean we say y'all and honey and darlin' but we aren't drawly rednecks like other TV shows and movies have made us out to sound.

    Old native Charlestonians actually have a "gullah" accent.
    My grandmother, who died at 97 had a very thick gullah accent.
