Re: Falling Skies Season 4 discussion thread - Spoilers

My wife and I just binge-watched our way through all three seasons on DVD, just to refresh our memories, and I can honestly say I'm looking forward to Season 4.

Yeah, S3 was kind of all over the board a bit, but I find the characters likeable enough to care about their plight. Plus, there's still a lot of unanswered questions, so I'm aboard for the ride.

Re: Falling Skies Season 4 discussion thread - Spoilers

It looks like Lexi is the new Isabelle Tyler (from The 4400). I wasn't a fan of that element of that series.

The new showrunner is David Eick. I just hope that he has a plan...

Re: Falling Skies Season 4 discussion thread - Spoilers

I enjoy this show in the same way I enjoy Haven: Good cast, likeable characters, and a fun premise (even if they did abandon Massachusetts). What some call a "guilty pleasure." But for the life of me, I can't remember where they left off. It seems like forever since it was on.

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).
No, I deleted most of season three without watching it. Just couldn't stand it any more.

There's still a small chance I'll watch Under The Dome...

I do agree the whole accelerated aging alien hybrid baby thing is annoying, but I can understand why they did it. It's not enough to make look forward to the new season any less.
Woohoo, the premier is tonight!

I wouldn't worry about not remembering what came before. I've seen the season premiere, and things have so drastically changed it might as well be a new show. I mean, (most of) the same characters are there, and it's still about fighting the alien invasion, but the tone and setting of the show has vastly shifted gears yet again. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide whether that's a good thing or not after seeing it.

i should be seeing in a few minutes...but would you say the changes are like 2nd 1/2 of Agent of Shield/ 2 1/2 of Flash Gordon, or the 2nd Season of War of the Worlds/5th season of Earth Final Conflict & Andromeda

I'm half way through the episode.

It's Earth Final Conflict and Andromeda changes. I wish they went to Brazil. really really weird and makes everything before it almost useless.

Well, I've only seen one of those (Agents of SHIELD), so I couldn't say.

It's definitely not like the AoS change though, which was a huge leap in quality and made the show go from something I was on the fence about to one of my favorite shows.

Re: Falling Skies Season 4 discussion thread - Spoilers

i don't know if it's EFC level (yet) -- production values still seem up. But the characters seem kinda waaay off, and not sure how realisitic that change seems to be.

Now, Tom is sneaking out of his cell? i'm confused...is he locked up in somewhere, or is he free to roam the area? If he his sneaking out...is the security there REALLY that bad? That's kinda cheezy to me.


Hmm, and it looks like a whole bunch of people are about to raid Pope's house & he's gonna lose his stuff (Sawyer's set-up in Lost like that didn't last long, right?)
