I have gotten into the Falling Skies series even though I missed the first couple of episodes.  The season finale is coming up on Sunday, and it has been renewed for a second season.  It's actually a pretty intelligent sci-fi series.

TNT is doing a marathon this Sunday leading up to the two hour season finale and I loved the way the show built up to the finale, lots of questions to be answered.  If you haven't checked it out you might want to grab some popcorn for the marathon and watch it from beginning to end.

It's having it's season finale already? It hasn't had very many eps at all. I've been watching it for the most part, although I forgot it was on this past sunday, so I'll try and catch it in a rerun.

I've tried like crazy to get into this series, but it seemed to have started with the aliens already having invaded Earth,sort of like a continuation of the Tom Cruise version of WOTW. So it kinda lost me.

I missed the first couple of episodes so I'll play catch up Sunday. It looks like the writers are bringing the questions into play as it progresses which is kind of cool. It really has me wondering now if the skitters are really 'evil' or even if they are the invaders.

I taped and caught the last 2 hours last night.  Kind of what I suspected, the skitters are controlled by other aliens, what surprised me is that they are humans turned into skiiters, and perhaps other aliens.  The why is still out there, so hopefully that'll be answered next season, which won't be until summer 2012.

I had caught that part Angel, what surprised me was the way the skitters abandoned Rick. If it is a process as they said, he will become one of them so why leave him behind? I'm also looking forward to finding out the ulterior motives of the humanoid aliens.

Would it be really mean to say I hope Lt Suckup bought it during the attack on the tower? He knew Porter was dead and Porter's last order was to abort if they could not contact the 4th or 5th for the attack. Being Tom was second in command he should have reported it immediately. He reminded me of some of the low ranking officers I had in the army. Only concerned with sucking up to a superior officer and no thought for the troops under his command.

I was waiting I'm at the point now of eh?  TNT dropped the ball big time here.  Entirely too much of a wait with nothing to keep people on board.  I think most of those who did get into it have either lost interest or defected to The Walking Dead.  TNT just forgot all about this one and then will expect everyone after a year of waiting to be falling all over themselves to tune in.

TNT Should take a page from AMC.  KEEP VIEWERS INTERESTED! Norman Reedus does a hell of a lot of promoting of the show, but he promotes his projects He has been doing a lot of appearances with Sean Patrick Flanery For The Boondock Saints Franchise in addition to The Walking Dead.  (Guess that's why both are constantly in the minds of the fans)

Falling Skies had Noah Wylie and anyone who ever thought about watching ER knows who Noah Wylie is.  Noah Wylie obviously is not concerned with the future of his show.  It's like he crawled under a rock somewhere.  There is no buzz for Falling Skies.  Sad to say but I don't think it is going to do very well in Season 2. They haven't done anything to keep their fan base interested or loyal.

I just googled it and it said it's coming out this summer with only 10 episodes. I hate that the norm for a season is only 10 or 13 eps on the cable stations. Some have even been as little as 6 eps on BBC America, then we have to wait a year for a new 'season'. It sucks, makes us lose interest, and forget what happened the previous season.  They might as well call it a mini series then, cause that's what it feels like.

Thank you so much for the info Angel, I agree with you on that one. 6,10,13 is a rip off on a really good show.

I think Bedlam was like 5 or 6 episodes (BBC America) And A big reason I have lost interest in Falling Skies is that they really hasn't been anything to keep attention on it. Walking Dead was 6 Episodes first season too. But they Split the Season Season into two Parts with the first half airing in the fall of last year and the second half premiering on Sunday.

But everyone from AMC having a very active Website for the show to producers show runners and cast have spent the time in between the two halves working very hard to keep the show in front of the fans.

Well next Sunday June 17th Falling Skies is doing a 2 hour Season Premiere. I have to admit I'm not sure how much I'm investing in it this season, I'm really disappointed that they haven't done more for the fans between seasons. TNT show takes lessons from AMC/The Walking Dead.

While they are at it get some stars that are invested in the show. Noah Wylie and the rest of the cast really seem like they don't give a rat's butt about the show, the fans or anything else.

I hope I remember to tape it, because I'm sure it comes on at the same time as True Blood. I don't know if you have Dish, but they've moved AMC to a really odd channel, 9609 and I believe they're trying to get rid of it.

I know, Dish's contract with them is up and Dish doesn't want to pay the higher fees now. I'm thankful I have U-Verse. Although I think Dish may be cutting off their nose to spite their face.
