I was bored to tears watching it. This whole change of tactics doesn't make any sense to me. Which, sure, being aliens with alien mindsets makes a little sense in and of itself if it were at all realistic, but seeing as how its human writers putting the show together (as evident by them trying to duplicate the Nazis)... yeah, no.

I had all but forgotten about this show until it popped up in my "To Be Recorded" queue on my DVR the other day.
It's not a great show, by any means, but it is more fun to watch than others (I'm looking at you, Under the Dome).

Apparently this already hit the Web for Advance Screening. I've enjoyed this series so looking forward to the premiere.

I am too.

I am not excited by the apparent focus on children of varying ages, but I always like the way they keep your interest, and provide some twists throughout the season.

Re: Falling Skies Season 4 discussion thread - Spoilers

We need an intervention thread to deal with shit like this.

s04e01 wasn't terrible compared to earlier episodes, but consdering the skitters seeming failure to seal the deal, I can understand the need for a change in tactics from the Asphenni.

Remember, the harness kids are not going to live past 20.

The skitter kids that were harnessed years ago on skitter world are probably also approaching the end of their life spans if their aging potential was quartered as well.

It's/was an unsustainable business model.

New show runner this year.

I liked season 1, it was "ehh", loved season 2, season 3 was a bit of a mess. I'll probably watch season 4 but I have no expectations.

Season 3 was all over the place--some good moments, some....not so good. I really enjoyed season 1 and 2 but now I'm just "interested" to see how it plays out.

Last man alive on Planet Earth: John Pope.

That is the only worthwhile ending I see for this series.

Re: Falling Skies Season 4 discussion thread - Spoilers

The whole Alien Baby Hybrid with artificially accelerated aging thing kinda turned me off. I like the show but I feel like this thread was shoved down our throats. Hopefully she's not programmed to be an evil mustache twirler. But I swear hardly anyone has creative ways to deal with newborns on action adventure shows... and yet pregnancies continue to be written in due to actresses getting pregnant.

Hopefully 'Lexi' isn't Karen 2.0 or the broker of peace between humanity and the Espheni... I want those bastards exterminated by the end of the series.

Holy Praeta Na Ma, Batman!

But it IS hard to make a baby into a significant character without some kind of artificial aging, at least without radically changing a series. Space based/future sci-fi might be easier

I agree, in an interview they even admitted that wasn't planned at all. It was done because the actress got pregnant in real life. I rather they have her kidnapped and disappeared for several episodes and never got pregnant on the show.

But that turned me off of the show a lot too.
