Title: Falling Skies
Post by: Hydromancerx on June 26, 2011, 06:35:17 pm
Anyone watching TNT's Falling Skies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falling_Skies)? Last week was not too bad for a pilot. I look forward to tonight's episode.

Its also nice to see aliens that are a little more alien than humans with point ears or head ridges.

I only caught a few seconds, but the aliens seem to look, move and sound a bit like like robot velociraptors with machine guns.
I may check this series out more.

Okay so I've been watching this in spurts. Didn't see how season 3 ended but am familiar with the other seasons.

It was best in season 2, season 3 was pretty weak sauce comparably, it's shown a huge lack in character development/learning thats reminiscent of a sitcom rather than a serial drama. Also, the aliens get so many different styles of infiltration that it has become hard to believe they don't have the resources to just bug everybody, are they waiting on a shipment? Their lack of resources as a galactic empire is really starting to show, especially in Charleston.

Hope it picks up during 4, tired of badass character with dark past playing the same routine of bail in anger only to reappear when needed.
