    I just don't get it. This series is awesome

    By EricAdint, Jul 23, 2012

    I don't understand it. This series is the best sciifi I've seen since BSG. People seem to have problems with this series over the things that make it excellent. People are flawed, if we were invaded it would be pretty similar to the plot line. I can't get enough of this series. Yes it was obvious that the girl was a plant, yes mag is deeply flawed, guess what she was held prisoner and raped. The aspects of this sciifi series are exactly what I have been waiting for. People are flawed deeply flawed, and an alien invasion would be the equvelant of a modern MEU goin up against a roman legion. Hope this series will continue. I am tr

    Good but disappointing installment of this sci-fi television series

    By tigerdude22, Jul 18, 2012

    While on patrol, Hal and Maggie discover an unharnessed and alive Karen among a group of half-buried unharnessed corpses. Tom has some tough decisions to make when Weaver falls gravely ill from the bite he received at the harnessing factory. In my opinion, this was a good episode of "Falling Skies" but it was nowhere near as amazing as the previous two episodes. There was nothing spectacular, ground-breaking, breath-taking, or any of that stuff about this episode. Nothing much really went on in this episode and that's what disappointed me the most. The storyline was predictable like everything that happened in this episode was all called by me because I predicted pretty much every single one of them. This season gives you surprises by this episode, not really. The only surprise in this episode was probably when Hal and Margaret found a bunch of dead bodies in the forest near the beginning of the episode and that's it. But yeah, nothing much goes on here and not only that but there was pretty much no action whatsoever in this episode. I'm glad that Captain Weaver was recovered, there were good character development here and there, the storyline, while mostly and VERY predictable, was handled and executed decently, and that one surprise near the beginning of the episode. I lost some respect for Ben in this episode and it was so freakin' predictable that Ben would hit Hal when Hal said "Ben, come over here now" then Ben walks towards Hal and says "Thanks for looking after me" then hits him. Like wow!!! that really shocked me (sarcasm). I saw that coming 100%. The episode dragged in a lot of parts too and some of the dialogue didn't really matter in this episode was nothing but unsettling boredom. Also, I felt like Ben and that blonde girl's acting was pretty bad in this episode especially that blonde girl and that scene where the blonde girl (don't know her name) attacking Margaret almost felt abysmal to watch. I don't know, there were just some things about this episode that could've been fixed. As much as I'm enjoying this season SO FAR at least, this is the 2nd weakest episode of the season while "Compass" the 1st weakest episode of the season. Overall, a good but disappointing episode of "Falling Skies"... they can do so much better than this so hopefully the next episode will make up for this episode. 7/10

    Homecoming

    By TrueTvWatcher, Jul 16, 2012

    Homecoming was a superb episode of Falling Skies. I really enjoyed watching because there was a lot of great character and plot develoment. There was some minor action, lots of drama, and hints of possibly great story lines if handled properly. If this show could somehow become the new Stargate SG-1 with it's storytelling abilities then the show could potentially go pretty far. I missed seeing any alien action this episode but it was definitely worth watching though some what predictable. I liked how Ben and Karen connected, but it seems she has hidden motives. Tom and Dr. Glass have a little fight which was good for their relationship. Captain Weaver goes through a risky treatment and Pope returns unconscious. I liked the ending and certainly look forward to watching what happens next!!!!!!!moreless
