I don't actually watch anything else on the network, with the exception of Franklin and Bash, which is sort of goofy but fun. I would say Falling Skies is okay for what it is. And I gotta give them some credit just for having the balls to put it on the air in the first place. I probably said it already, but it's not like we're awash in post-apocalyptic sci-fi right now, with or without aliens. It's not Battlestar Galactica, by any stretch, and I don't think it's as good as the early press word was, but it's not bad, either.

As far as comparing it to Jar-Jar, there's nothing even remotely Jar-Jar on the show. It's a family show, sure, but there's none of that Lucas being desperate for kids feel like the Ewoks or the Special Edition BS or (I think the worst) all the bullshit groundhogs in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. They do go overboard with the touchy-feely family moments but there's no forced kid garbage. Thankfully.

I don't see much depth of character or even an interest-keeping pace in the way the show "flows".

It's a shell-shocked group of people in the rubble of the world, I'm not sure how much more depth there's going to be than that. As far as pace goes, I agree with you, but it's gotten gradually better with each episode. The pilot was difficult to get through, at least for me. The fourth episode was easier.

Watching it so far kind of felt like it was a mini-series idea that they stretched out to 10 weeks. I'm not sure where they're going now that they have Ben back.

Agreed, I think we just saw the first good episode of the season (apart from the decent pilot episode) and for once I'm interested in this show that my wife loves (probably only because of Noah Wiley). They should have revealed this twist earlier though. Had my wife not made me watch it, I would have tuned out after a couple of episodes. Now I'm actually wanting to see the finale.

They foreshadowed it pretty early in the series when asking why the mech's only walked on two legs.

I forgot to voice my agreement with everybody about last week's. I liked the introduction of the new alien, although I'm not sure how I feel about the idea that the skitters are transformed kids. Hopefully that's a red-herring - maybe the kids are being turned into something else, and the skitters are an alien race that was collared. Either way, that was a good episode. It helped make the behavior of the captain guy finally make sense (character development = good), introduced what may be the real enemy, and set up what I'm hoping is a great 2 hours tonight. It feels for maybe the first time like the show is leading somewhere, instead of sort of meandering.

On the flip side, I'm somewhat saddened that this, White Collar and, to a lesser degree, Covert Affairs are all ending this week.

Well, I can't be too upset by the slow development of FS. V unzipped it's fly waaaaay too soon, and it paid the price. Maybe Falling Skies will feed us just enough until they decide to overwhelm.

Slow development doesn't bother me. No development, however...

I came very close to giving up.


I just wish the show had a greater sense of urgency. Mid-level characters getting killed, desperation, chaos, etc.


I am pretty sure that the humans have killed more humans then the skidders have.

I almost gave up with the pilot. But it seemed like each episode was progressively a little better. I agree on the urgency point, although I don't think that plays with the kind of saccharine sentimentality they seem to want to throw in sometimes, the kind of stuff I've associated with CBS earlier in the thread - the "Jericho" moments, I think of them - like the dinner scene at the end of an episode a few weeks back.

It just doesn't strike me as the kind of show that's ever really going to have that kind of....gravity. Which is okay. Not everything has to be dark.

Although maybe they'll surprise me tonight with some kind of BSG-style twist/cliffhanger.

I do like that I'm not sure what's going to happen, and that I have a feeling the attack on the....whatever that structure is might not go well.

I agree. I think that the aliens are going to bring a lot more fight if there is a next season. In the previews the harnessed girlfriend stated that they didn't expect resistance.
