So far Dish has AMC on the 9600 channels, don't know if they're going to be completely gone or not, they put IFC up there too.

Abby have you been watching Falling Skies, what do you think so far?

AT&T Renewed the contract with AMC so yeah! I'll be watching TWD This weekend.

Angel I'm really let down by it so far, I'm hoping that it will improve but.  It was a really 'disjointed' premiere in my opinion.  After all the groundwork laid about the connection between the harness kids and skitters (The implication that harness kids become skitters) The teasing with the tall aliens I was expecting a connection to the cliffhanger instead of that the storyline is going off of a tangent and it seems to forget everything that came before.

Falling skies did a three month lapse between seasons and suddenly Pope has some kind of accepted status commanding his own unit, the tall aliens have this plot to put all humans on reservations and 2Nd mass acts no different than they did in the beginning skitters are skitters it like the discovery of the skitters being harnessed never happened.  Ben has miraculously transformed into superbrat because of the spikes and hey there's survivors in Charleston lets just pack up and go to Charleston!

It's been very difficult to get back into the story because I feel a little like Rip Van Winkle, I just slept through all the really important stuff and suddenly this is just the way it is.  Like it or lump it.

I agree, it isn't as good as it could be and the packing up and going to Charleston? I think they'd be a bit more cautious. I think they're headed for a reservation where the aliens want to round them up.

How is this woman just flying around in her plane without being spotted by them.  And the tall ones wanted to make that deal with Tom to lead the survivors to a reservation. he turned them down, or at least we think he turned them down.

I thought last night's episode was the best one so far with a rebel skitter, made it a bit more interesting.

I do too as it comes on at the same time as True Blood, and Dish took away AMC and a couple other stations, which really sucks.

I think dish may be regretting it after seeing their new promotion last night. All Premium channel plus Blockbuster at home free for 3 months. They are giving up a lot in trying to find new subscribers. I think they may be losing a lot to cable, UVerse and direct TV.

What I don't like about them either is that if you're on autopay they'll give you free HD receiver and free HD programming, but I refuse to do autopay, I pay my bill in full and on time, but that doesn't matter to them, if I want HD programming, I'd have to pay an extra 10 bucks a month.

That sucks. I'm so glad I got U-Verse HD Channels are included in the package and if they pick up a new HD Channel and you already have it they add the HD channel. When I first got it AMC was not in HD but they picked it up in HD about 3 months later and just put it in the HD Tier automatically since the HD Tier comes as a part of my package.

Well they finally made it to Charleston, albiet it doesn't look like what they thought it would be, but next week we'll get to see the underground Charleston, looks like things are picking up a bit more, not too many episodes left though.

Okay another season has premiered and I'm really trying here, but Falling Skies is losing me, too big gaps in the story line (It comes back with too many major changes and then there's the obvious Walking Dead ripoff of Tom and Anne having a daughter). It's really is beginning to feel like I'm simply watching a bad clone of the Walking Dead with aliens instead of walkers.

I had to watch the finale of Game of Thrones, then I turned on the second half of falling skies, then they repeated the first hour, so I watched it in reverse. I think the spy is Tom's oldest son and who are these new aliens all of a sudden helping them out? I missed a bit here and there. At least it'll give me something to watch after True Blood on Sunday.

I thought it was Hal at first and then Dan, the only problem is that both Hal and Dan were in the group heading to the reactor site when the spy broke into the office.
