    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.

    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? :lol:

    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?

    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.

    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

    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.

    Noooo, not Lourdes. :( And she's got a whole swarm of those things. :cardie:

    Well, I thought Stephen Collins would last longer than that. Too bad. First Locke, then Max Headroom and now Jake Cutter. I guess the writing is on the wall for big-name cast members.

    It was great to see Christopher Heyerdahl again. Loved both of his roles in Sanctuary.

    And I guess my theory about Marina is out the window. Poor Lourdes. :(

    I thought this was an OK episode. The stuff with Christopher Heyerdahl and his family was pretty good, and I did not expect the big mole reveal. I wonder if we'll see any of Hathaway's people pop up wanting to know what happened to him?

    How come Lourdes got about 40 times hotter as she was killing Decker?

    Dust for prints where? Lourdes wears gloves all the time, she's a Doctor, and the only one in town at the moment. She was wearing gloves the whole time, didn't leave the gun laying around, and the only place the'd find her finger prints would be on the inside of the gloves, and there's an innocent explanation for that.

    Glad to see I'm not the only who remembers Tales of the Gold Monkey, the show holds up pretty well all these years later on DVD. I didn't know Heyerdahl played two roles in Sanctuary. He played two recurring roles in Stargate Atlantis as well. He was great as Todd the Wraith, but just kind of there as one of Tela's village guys.

    I absolutely love Tales of the Gold Monkey. It's one of my all-time favorite shows and I got the DVDs the day they came out. I think it definitely holds up after all these years.

    As for Sanctuary, one of the roles that Heyerdahl played was Big Foot, so he wasn't very recognizable. :D
