Falling Skies will return for a season 4
Ah, hell. Now it'll be another year before we find out what the Volm are building and why they came to Earth.
This show seems to have a pretty small following here - I think it's actually gotten better since season 1. I like what they've added to it and it's a good summer show. If it was on in the fall, I probably wouldn't have time for it.
I've been enjoying it as well. It's gotten consistently more watchable. If not for the mediocre first season, I might even recommend it to friends now (as summer watching at least).
I watch, but I just don't know how much I actually like it thanks to the glut of post-apocalyptic dramas that are all mediocre in the past few years, I'm about apocalypsed out, I count:
All with the same basic "mankind tries to survive after the gutting of xxx or yyy" and I'm sure I'm missing another
Those shows are COMPLETELY different!
Falling Skies=Alien invasion
Terra Nova=Environmental catastrophe
Revolution=Science experiment gone wrong
You have to give them credit...rather than their usual habit of just blatantly ripping each other off, the networks here have given us an impressive array of apocalyptic scenarios!
I LOL'd on that, and then was reminded of the quote from The Blues Brothers "We got both kinds of music, we got Country and Western"
What, no Zombie Apocalypse? (The Walking Dead)
see! I knew I'd miss at least one if not more!
At 10 episodes per season, can they really be called seasons? I find it harder to get hooked on shows with so few eps.
Ten shows is more than a series (season) in the UK....
Or less (e.g., Doctor Who). They're a lot more flexible in season length. 3-13 seems to be the range...
I watch. It's not great but it's some mindless summer fun.
His oldest son is so lucky, he gets both hot blondes.
...who are both psychotic...
I uncovered my own thoughts about this show after catching up on a bunch of episodes last weekend. I'm enjoying watching it but I give 0 crap about any of the characters in the show; they could live or die right now and I just won't care. Likely chalk it up to the fact...
...an implanted alien probe, or surprise alien baby, or challenge of authority turns likeable, logical characters into hateable dickbags
Just a FYI,
Looks like the first episode of season 4 is available via magical means.
Amazon.com has it for free!
I watched this last night. IMO, they've taken this show into a very odd direction.
I don't have Amazon Prime right now but when I did, I watched this show and like it so I am glad it will continue on another season or two. Maybe a well written conclusion at the end of season 4 or season 5 will set it apart from the other post apocalypse shows. I am sure to sign up for Amazon Prime again soon and will catch up.
