Mason is a dick and an idiot. When Pope dropped that snake on him, that was real-man-eese for "I am your friend." All Tom had to do was "laugh" and call him an "asshole" after which as far as Pope was concerned, Mason was his BFF who he would take a bullet for.

It's called "lying".

The fighting between them two was completely stupid and just like random, couldn't have felt more forced.

Yeah, that was my take on it, as well. I found most of Tom's reactions to be really out of character. The only thing that felt right was Tom getting Mason to leave him behind.

I seriously thought they were being provoked/attacked by some sort of psychic weapons that was turning them into [not a joke]tetchy aggressive assholes[/not a joke].
These are the exact same reactions I had. The whole agitation seemed to come out of nowhere, starting with the "I'll take the first watch" moment when Mason grabbed the gun. I was about ready to ignore it or chalk it up to I musta missed something, but then they were really riled the next morning.

I definitely was expecting some kind of mind control/pheromone or something. Perhaps a Skitter tactic to flush out the quarry. I don't know how I feel about it being a legitimate beef. Seemed really out of place.

And what kind of husband and father is Tom? The moment I found out I was unconscious for 2 days, my immediate reaction would have been where are my kids and my wife?

No one is pointing a gun to your head, because if they were they wouldn't put it down.

Could you give a gun barrel a blow job so dirty that the fellah holding the gun would drop it and run, rather than pull the trigger?

I didn't know either, bummer.

It's good that David Eick has already reached out to Aubuchon on some ideas to ensure he maintains the integrity of what has already come on the show. Here's hoping the show doesn't degrade, and maybe even becomes better in S4.

Wasn't it Aubuchon's Pilot that was reworked into Caprica's Pilot? Maybe he'll put out a great book that will lead to an awesome movie and/or Series

David Eick who rebooted The Bionic Woman so badly?
The show is fracturing over conceptual problems, already. A certified idiot isn't going to help.

No, i'm pretty sure he'd pull the trigger in the middle of your face-fuck just to keep you from contributing to the gene pool...

Anyways, you can really tell the difference between season 1, boring alien kiddish, and season 2/season 3.

I rather have the Babylon 5 guy, he doesn't seem too busy.

I hadn't heard about the show runner leaving either. Glad to see it's Eick who's taking over, I loved both BSG and Caprica.

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

I am pretty lukewarm to the show, quite honestly. The production values are top notch, the acting is good, but the writing is ... well, 2 out of 3 ain't bad. Happy for fans of the show that it was picked up though...
