Really....? (Directed at the producers, not you guys) I like the show a lot, but even I can only react to that with a .

It worked for them once, it will work for them again!

I'm really hoping that means reinforcements show up or something. We don't need another alien race.

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

As I recall, the producers were saying that this whole story wasn't going to be about humans vs aliens, but rather humans caught in the middle of aliens vs aliens vs aliens from before the series began.

Not sure why the board is giving this show so much flak though.

Falling Skies is pop sci-fi for the masses (with decent ratings to reflect that as well)

Enjoy it for what it is, don't get bogged down in hating it for what it isn't. lol

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

God only gave us a finite number of orgasms, and we already done used them all up on TNG reruns. Intellectually we believe that this show should be making our toes curl and it's only gods stupid limitations that left us with an empty gas tank to roll our eye balls all the way back, and not that this show is a tediously inferior product.

So these girly hissy fits are just misdirected rage towards an ineffectual god, and those of us with manners should apologise for hurting Falling Skies' feelings.

I'm sorry Falling Skies.

It's not you, it's me.

Just started watching falling skies...should I stop?
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.
Probably the same reason you keep reading their posts and bitching about them.
Fine. I'll stop bitching if they stop posting. Fair deal?

Have to say... Never even suspected who "Worm Face" turned out to be.

Great to see Christopher Heyerdahl again!

Love the interactions between Will Patton & Colin Cunningham.

Getting close to the end now.

They talk about running out of space underground yet there is a whole floor under the hospital level where no one lives?

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

Chochese just shows up with Hathaway the instant Charleston starts asking difficult questions?

They didn't bump into anyone who would help their president, or kill the alien?

Clone?

Mass hypnosis?

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

I took that for what it really was, the new president does not like pope so she is reaching out for him personally. I would t look too far beyond that.

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

I really don't see Pope as unreasonable.

It's almost like these episodes are written by committee (well of course they are, it's a huge fricking room full of writers!) where half the room thinks Pope is Han Solo and the Other half think that he's Lando with bad hair
