Re: Falling Skies - season 3

I'm really looking forward to season 3. It's not a perfect show by any means, but I enjoy it enough to keep tuning in.

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

Well, I just had a startling experience, I checked IMDB to see if 1 or 2 episodes would be playing tomorrow night, and I noticed Maxim Knight (Matt Mason) was credited for 27 episodes but, Noah Wylie is only credited for 20. My mond started racing...What's this mean, is Tom killed or captured (And taken out of play for the season) early in the first episode? Then I realized everyone is only credited for S1 and S2, but, not yet for S3 (Except for Maxim Knight)

For those wondering, IMDB does say it's a double Episode premiere as S1 and S2 were. Can't wait for the cliffhanger resolution.

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

I got caught up on this through Wikipedia, and the streaming episodes on the official site over the last week or so. I really enjoyed the episodes I watched, and now I'm pretty excited for the premier tomorrow night. Very curious to see where things are headed.

IMDB is always wrong when it come to episodes cast are in.

No one can be in 27 episodes when there are only 20, each season only has ten episodes.

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

I almost forgot this was on tonight. I hope to be around for the first 40 minutes or so, but my schedule is up in the air right now. Either way, the DVR is set, so I can always watch and comment later on.

I hope the expectation lives up to the event, because the promos for it look really good.

This is Season 3, so 30 episodes are filmed. It's very typical for IMDB to have been updated for S3 cast by now.

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

The only thing that's putting me off for the new season is that in the trailers I've seen for it the writers seem to be using the "your child will be special" trope.

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

Yeah, I'm not to fond of that type of story either. Hopefully they can manage to make it interesting.

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

Okay, could someone please send this premiere to the people who produce Defiance to show them how "aliens on Earth" is supposed to be done? Seeing this reminded me how much I missed good TV sci-fi.

Did anyone else have horrible glitchy audio for the entire first episode?

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

No glitchy audio for me.

I liked the season priemere. The 7-month time skip works for me, but is the new alien really named Cochise, or is that just a human nickname for him (or her)?

Cylons! I knew it! I laughed for 5 straight minutes at that scene. Someone needs to tell Ron Moore they ripped him off.

Also, that baby is possessed they need to kill it with fire.

So every other character is killed off?

The numbers are always wrong, there are shows 40 years old and the numbers are wrong.
