    Check out the news on the GW-mainpage: Aubuchen would be exe if FS would make it to a second season *pets poor show*. So I would say there will be some form of an open end.

    just finished watching. i'll put my comments in spoilers for those who haven't seen it.

    Spoiler:
    they jumped right in to the action, which while is exciting not knowing who the characters are, makes it hard to care. the father trying to find his kid would be more emotional if you knew anything about him.

    for the most part it was kind of predictable, they have a jerk military officer, a doctor who reminded me of wray (even though shes not a doctor), and your stereo typical hero (o'neill, shepherd), and the criminal who you know is going to end up helping them a lot down the road.

    that being said it did hold my interest for the most part, and i definetly will be tuning in next week. i just can't help but wonder how long this show has before it gets cancelled (as it seems is the fate for most sci-fi shows today).

    This draws a lot of parallels to the Walking Dead in my mind. It feels more like a movie than a TV show. It also seems, based on the initial two premier episodes, that each episode is going to be a "mission of the week" type episode with an underlying story that ties it all together. I actually like that. I don't like shows that are entirely one off episodes, or shows that are entirely arc based. I like a show that follows an arc, but can be easily watched over again in a stand alone format.

    I'm also surprised at how much I like Noah Wyle in this... I hope I'm not the only one that got a slight "Malcolm Reynolds" vibe from him at times.

    What I don't like is how cookie cutter most of the characters seem to be; they all fit into classic sci-fi molds. I mean in the end that isn't an entirely bad thing, because those molds were set for a reason, but I was kind of hoping for something entirely original. That said, as far as being a traditional sci-fi show Falling Skies seems pretty good. It combines the traditional sci-fi roles with the newer apocalyptic survival of humanity style; and it combines them very well.

    I think this might be the show that most sci-fi fans have been waiting for. Even if you don't personally like it, it is the first true sci-fi show in recent memory that has what it takes to attract a wider audience. And even if it doesn't attract a wider audience, I like it.

    Looking forward to watching this tomorrow (tonight is my watch of the last Game of Thrones ep). Reviews look good so far, from what I've read. High hopes.

    I watched this last night.
    It deserves another look next week.
    I haven't fully committed to it.

    I agree completley with your synopsis.
    I did enjoy it,though. Yes, that is Colin Cunningham

    It didn't blow me away like Walking Dead did but it was interesting enough, I'll tune in again next week.

    I love Colin Cunningham's character, he spiced it up nicely. Noah Wyle did a good job.

    I wonder when the ratings will be in.

    TNT's 'Falling Skies' Off To Strong Start
    http://www.deadline.com/2011/06/tnts...-strong-start/
    The series starring Noah Wyle drew 5.9 million viewers for its 9-11 PM opener to become the most-watched cable premiere since TNT's Rizzoli & Isles (7.6 million) last summer, outpacing the October debut of AMC's The Walking Dead (5.3 million).

    Nice that it got good ratings. Hope they don't drop off too much.

    I enjoyed it for what it was. It wasn't spectacular but entertaining enough that I'll stick with it to see where it goes with the story.
    IMO always implied.

    I enjoyed it, wasn't blown away, but I'm looking forward to the next episode. So far on what little I've seen, I'm liking it better than The Walking Dead and a lot better than V.

    unlike most two parters of shows, there was a distinct ending to the first part, which makes me think that they were different episodes.
