Epix's new Anglo-French reimagining of HG Wells' science fiction masterpiece 'War of the Worlds' is finally here with a fast-paced first episode. Some of the early viewers of Episode 1 have taken to Twitter to talk about the show and the reactions are generally positive. 

Quite a few of the viewers have drawn comparisons between the show and AMC's hit zombie series 'The Walking Dead'. "Ok #WarOfTheWorlds on #epix has me sucked in," one viewer wrote on Twitter. "I hope they got their act together and don’t eventually suffer from what #TWD did - that is aimless direction and repeated storylines."

"So, just watched the first episode of #WarOfTheWorlds and it was good," another viewer tweeted. "Very interested to see where this goes."

Yet another viewer wrote, "First episode of #WarOfTheWorlds was pretty good, an interesting new take, will have to see how it does in a few episodes."

"#WarOfTheWorlds was great," one viewer tweeted. "First episode did a great job building the tension and suspense. Looking forward to seeing the next episode and where they go with the series."

But while most of the early viewers had similar things to say about the show, not all of the reactions were so positive. Some viewers didn't find the first episode as gripping as others did but even those people seem hopeful that the show could get better with time.

"I was hoping the first episode of #WarOfTheWorlds would be good, but it was pretty boring," one viewer tweeted. "Not even close to being intrigued about this series."

"Five minutes into #WarOfTheWorlds and I'm bored as hell," another viewer wrote. "I was really excited about this show so, I sure hope it gets better."
