Find something called "Red Dwarf".

You're welcome.

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

Stopped watching this after Season 1. From the comments it seems like it didn't get much better.

To me it often seems like Doctor Who is the only decent sci-fi show left in the world.

The show is A LOT better in season 2 than season one. Even the let down of season three so far is better than the blah season 1.

It's been 25 or 26 months. I swear the first season takes place 6 months after, then 3 months between seasons 1 and 2 (I think) and 7 months between seasons 2 and 3.

So pretty much everything we have seen on scene only takes place in 9 months.
Do your sums work out the same if you use the baby as a yard stick?
No because it's an alien baby and it be like "Whats a yard?"
No one suspected alien interference in the baby until after her birth. There was no mention of premature birth. Normal gestation is 9 months and change.

I suppose that depends upon wether the baby is 36 inches long or not (which I highly doubt as young as the baby is supposed to be)

No. Keep watching. It's the better alien invasion series between it and Defiance. It's the better end of the world show between it and Revolution. And I don't get why people who don't like it keep watching it and come into this thread to bitch about it, but don't pay any attention to them.

I will agree it is better than Revolution. Defiance I haven't watched.

Except Defiance isn't an alien invasion show. Honestly, the approaches to two shows' take on the aliens on Earth concept is so different, I wouldn't even compare them.

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

The spoonerism of Falling SKies is Skalling Fies... Scaling thighs.

Which to my imagination has something to do with mountaineeringlike biggirl professional womans basketball player sex.

Oh.

Scaling fish is something else entirely, and if a woman has to not just shave her legs before going out on the town, but scale her "fies", then congratulations on hiding a pretty weird mutation until some dude puts a ring on her finger.

But then as far as bean stalks are concerned, I'm wonder where skaling fo and skaling fum are?

Probably the same reason you keep reading their posts and bitching about them.

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

I complain about the show because the last two episodes suck.

Plus it's the best sci-fi show on the air right now. Which is sad, but still, the action is normally a lot of fun, and I have a small crush on Hal.
