Very glad to hear about season 3. Looking forward to the next half of this show. I never realized the show only had 10 episodes. Man, this is great.

This season has been stellar thus far, and I am so glad TNT made the right decision in renewing it for a third season. Now we can just sit back and enjoy the rest of this season without worrying about it coming back or not.

I can be pretty sure we won't be promised a 10 season SG-1 run, but a third season is pleasantly exciting. I do wish for more episodes in a season though, what did the first season have, like five episodes?

It had 10 episodes too, but I think they were all one episode airings instead of the 2 episode back to back he had at the start of season 2.

Well, the show has quenched my Stargate cravings. Finally, another show were I impatiently week-by-week for a new episode. What I really want to see is more flashbacks, maybe a shot of the "fish-heads" as their first ships are entering Earths atmo. I am a fan of mass destruction, ( on the fictional side) and a flashback of the beginning of it all would be cooltacular.

Me too. Another member mentioned flash backs about the Skitters...would be a taste treat for some FYI on both alien fractions. As for so few episodes, Burn Notice started out the same way. As time went by and the show developed a following they gave us more. If FS stays popular it should expand...

Never watched Burn Notice, but I hope you're right. Would be nice to see the beginning of it all.

Burn Notice started out with 12 episode and is now at 18 and in it's 6th season. So lets hope Falling Skies has a good strong following and maybe they will give us more. I don't know anything about the ins and outs of contracts, but if TPTB wanted to extend this season, I would think they could do so without contract issues, since doing flashbacks about the Skitter and the OL's would not require the used of the general cast.

It would be really cool to see flashbacks about Red eye and how his planet got conquered. I would love to see that. :D:D

Maybe someone from the show prowls around site. If we keep commenting on the need for alien flashbacks perhaps they will give us some. Of course we could just make up our own past history on the 2 different species invading our world. :D

Fantastic news about the renewal. An we still got four more episodes of Season 2 to go.

The heavy effects works means that their is a much longer lead time needed to make new episodes, than something like Burn Notice which have minimal or zero effects. It might also mean that TNT are reluctant to order more episodes, budget but then they did give the crew a bigger budget this year for more CGI work and explosions.

Television can be very restricting on CGI and other advanced effects. Look at the SG series. Much of the CGI in that was old clips just being recycled.

I little late but I was so happy when I heard this news, the show is amazing and pulls you in from the start and the mix between great characters and an intense plotline, and so much more in-between.

I would also love more episodes per season but at the same time I get why they stick to 10 of them and I think it has to do more with budget than the actors contract (because I’m sure they wouldn’t mind doing more either) but shows like this cost a lot of money to do and maybe TPTB decided that it was better to make 10 episodes and be able to go all out then make more and not have the means to do everything they want. There is actually a lot of shows these days that have only have 10 episodes per seasons or even less, GoT also have 10 episodes per season and TWD only had 6 episodes in season 1 though they did go up to 13 episodes in season 2 and both those shows are extremely popular. Gotta admit though that when it comes to great shows you just never want them to end.

That is great and I do feel as if they are really using it in the best way possible.

hu... is it really becoming good ? because I stopped at the first half of season one of finding it week and a bad copy of the walking dead... but if u think it is really good.. proof me wrong :D

Sp!der, it improved quite a bit. It's still a family-oriented show, and if you don't have kids at home, you might discover yourself rolling your eyes occasionally. It's good not great, IMO, but it might be the best sci-fi available on TV at the moment.

Agreed. That imo was something missing from S1.. IMO the Premier would have done well if say the first 10-20 min had the invasion happening then flashed forward to the start of the mass..
