It would have been cool to see Pope in his old Airforce uniform from Stargate.

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

This is the kind of show where I just sit back and enjoy, but this was the weakest episode of the year to me. Not that I didn't like it. I liked seeing Tom in his natural environment and it's amusing seeing Weaver and Pope as strange bedfellows. But if Karen and the aliens are going to screw with Tom's mind, why make it so easy for him to see through it?

Holy crap, man...

All this time and until you said this it didn't hit me that he was Major Davis.

Shows how much attention I'm actually paying...

Have to say... Never even suspected who "Worm Face" turned out to be.
And why should you? It was a classic "let's pick someone at random to be the real mole." I guess we coulda narrowed it down. We knew it wasn't going to be a main character, so who did that leave?

Of course, they way they took care of the Hal arc, we all were lead to believe he was the mole.
Which didn't make any sense since Hal was part of the real mission that required the fake diversion plan that the mole reported back to the aliens.

Just shows how good an actor he is. Goes from mild mannered clean cut airforce guy to long hair ex-con biker warrior and you can barely tell it's him.

He definitely plays his characters so differently from each other. I believe there was a Star Trek (maybe?) and an Andromeda (I'm sure about this one) role both that took me forever to realize it was him, even though I knew that I recognized him from somewhere.

Yeah, and why didn't they pursue him? I'm hoping it was all part of a larger plan, because otherwise, that entire episode was a bit of a waste of time.

I guess we shall see.

Going back to your other post, wouldn't it be mind-blowing if Pope and his gang finally bailed on Charleston and in their wanderings encountered Major Davis leading a group of military Pentagon survivors?

(Yeah, I know. It's just the way my mind works sometimes...)

Yeah, he got away very easily. Although he seems to have ended up back in Boston, so he's got a long walk ahead of him.

Re: Falling Skies - season 3

According to Google it's 311 miles from Boston to Charleston. I did the math and if he walks 5 hours a day (he'd probably walk longer, but let's account for foraging for food, fighting bandits, hiding from aliens, rugged terrain, getting lost, etc...) it would take him just over 2 months to walk all that way.

He better start hoofing it.

Nice way of hiding Moon Bloodstone's pregnancy by setting the "memory" in winter. Bulky winter clothes and having her only scene be sitting at a table was a nice idea.

Don't worry, Tom can travel at the speed of plot, just like the Enterprise.

Her scenes were filmed three month before in a sound stage while his were filmed in a real after at the very end of filming. If was very well done.

For anyone who is interested in the filming of that scence, Greg Beeman postet on his blog how that was done exactly.

I love the security in Charleston when someone in a white boat with big white sails can just sail in largely undetected.
