Falling Skies

Thanks for the review. I was planning on breaking my own rules and checking it out, but I only had time to watch one hour of tv, so I picked Game of Thrones. I will hopefully get a chance to watch it today.

I was hesitating and planning on waiting for ratings (Which sometimes take an extra day to come out for cable networks), but I don't see how this can fail. Not with all of the advertising they did. It should at least get a second season renewal without much effort.

Thanks again.

After only the first episode, I hate the children.

Oh wow, I seem to have watched something completely different.
It had a few glimpses of interesting things, but overall I was falling asleep.

I loved Jericho as well and imo Falling Skies can't hold a candle to it.

@josbeir I think it was great.

@ColeFrost I like your comparisons with other shows. If you considered The Walking Dead to be a benchmark, then I think this is the new benchmark. As much as we can know from 2 episodes, at least.
Within the first minutes, I had forgotten I was watching TV (as you should) and was well drawn in.

At the least, I think this tops Jericho. I loved Jericho. So far it's genuinely great.

Anyone worried this might be V has no need to worry.

@Lemon

I think he meant Band of Brothers.

Spielberg is only producing and it will be on a cable budget, so my hopes will be low. I think it could be alright. Jericho tried, but The Walking Dead was what made post-apocalyptic cool for tv. Hopefully, it is good.

@Lemon Let me know if it's good, so I know whether or not to waste my bandwith on it :p

@josbeir Isn't Saving Private Ryan a movie?

@kakature not so sure of that, most Spielberg produced shows are quite good (taken, saving private ryan, ...).

I'm curious. Hoping it'll be good, but it probably won't be.
