Re: Falling Skies - season 3

Anyone catch this on an upcoming episode? Frakes I guess still wants to stay in the game on directing sci-fi

9 "Journey to Xilbalba"[27] Jonathan Frakes Bradley Thompson & David Weddle July 28, 2013[9]
Regarding the episode I liked it. It's a little corney at time but then again what sci-fi cannot be? There are many Trek episodes that are way over the top.

Also, I think it's interesting that they are setting up a lot of parallels between the American Revolutionary War and the fight between the two groups of aliens.

The fish head aliens [forget their names] are obviously the British whereas the Volm are the French - willing to help the group with their technology. [it's worth remembering the French gave General Washington supplies and money during the war]

Also, if the Volm end up having another agenda this will further the analogy because the French supported the US Revolution with the alternate agenda of destablizing the British.
