I label it as such because humans who have experimented on themselves are able to adapt insect-like attributes and possesses their abilities to fight on par with the Terra Formars. Its far from being good but it certainly isnt bad. However, the shows lack of remorse for characters makes it difficult to like, as many characters could end up dying.

What I can see in Terra Formars are echoes of a great many films, all of which did this sort of thing much better. The premise was pretty interesting and I really liked the idea of how the tables have turned and the bug overlords are now hunting down the humans. But then again fans of the original naturally wouldn't have been content with that either. And of course the science is ridiculous.
