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.
He's "locked up," but in a bombed out building full of holes and flimsy doors and windows so that it's really easy for him to escape every night to go play Ghostrider.

Also, suddenly he's a professional motocross stunt rider rather than a former history professor. Oh, and the aliens have aircraft and advanced sensors yet can't track him in an enclosed prison area because of his mad X-Games skillz.

Re: Falling Skies Season 4 discussion thread - Spoilers

How many new aliens can they get? A new ship with a new alien that kidnaps humans? The aliens have NAZI youth camps for the kids and ghettos for the adults? A history teacher drives a motorcycle really well! And the POW camp has a working motorcycle? Why not put a tracking chip in him?

And what's worse is that the aliens have a new source of power being built to make a shield around the planet... that was last season David Eick, maybe you should watch it.

Are you talking about the flying Skitter looking creature? We saw also normal skitters, the tall Esphenni and the Volm. The Esphenni have taken over many worlds so it makes sense that we will see some different aliens under there control from time to time. The show is slowly becoming the Syfy show Defiance. LOl

Yeah, that was really stupid; plus, he has this bitchin' bike. Where does he keep it? In prior seasons they had to insulate vehicle engines because it was too easy for the aliens to find them within a really big area, now the can't track it down in a ghetto.

Don't even joke. I can't deal with the one Defiance we've got. Last thing we need is two.

Well, long as they don't roll in somebody that looks like Chiana or sikozu (like half of Defiance's whole damn cast) I guess I can tolerate it...

So now Tom is playing Batman. great. yeah. sure.

Funny, that was my thought as well when he was out on his motorcycle escapade.

Yeah, that was a bit weird. On one hand, we have an Escape from New York type of prison camp; then we have kids in an alien Nazi brainwashing training center and finally, a group of touchy-feely, Namaste beatniks.

Not quite what I expected from this new season, but I will say that David Eick certainly isn't afraid to take chances. I'm curious to see where this will go, but I hope that they don't write themselves into a corner, then the show gets cancelled without a satisfying resolution.

Re: Falling Skies Season 4 discussion thread - Spoilers

I don't have a problem with Flashbacks being woven in (LOST, Time period change depicted with "WHOOSH" sound) or Multiple Universes (Charlie Jade with Universe changes being depicted by filter color at first, and then "X Universe" being displayed. Various Star Trek's with various visual cues) or multiple time lines (Babylon 5 Babylon Squared and War Without End or various Star Trek with various visual cues).

And yes, we did see "4 Months Later", but, I couldn't get my berrings compared to where we left off and what's happening in between then and the end of the episode (I believe it's a good 8 months to a year later by end of episode, compared to end of S3). I'm just not sure how or where to put everything together? (Charlie Jade actually did this, took about 5 episodes before I became comfortable with my understanding of what I was being shown).

I hope after more episodes, it's easier to follow, and we firm up the base we are moving forward from a bit better.

I don't know, maybe it's the 2 glasses of Wine that are confusing me will watch it again tomorrow with hindsight, to see if it flows better

Maybe being the first episode back, but I wasn't crazy about it. I will continue to watch because the first few episodes of a new season always disappoints me. I know it will get better. But it's all so desolate. And the characters aren't acting the right way. Only Tom and his kids.

If David Eick is a Cylon, or at least learned from them, HE HAS A PLAN!!!
