I'm watching the third season of Battlestar Galactica.
The aliens are occupying the humans. They're running terrorist operations to attack the aliens. The aliens think they've come along to help the humans, but have no clear idea of what they're going to do.
The humans want to bomb collaborators and are looking to recruit suicide bombers. One of the terrorist leaders has been tortured and now wants to go further.
They've taken the old darkness and retacheted it up even further.
