The banning of images in SIGs suck.
I am excited for this. Is it a finished mini series like taken or is it with an open end with hope for more seasons? With stories like this I would be fine with a mini series
So is anyone watching this at the moment?
just finished watching. i'll put my comments in spoilers for those who haven't seen it.
I dvr'd it; planning on watching by tomorrow.
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.
no means no, and so does pepper spraySig by The Carpenter
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
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.
Wow. More than I thought.
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.
On a side note, a two hour pilot with different names for each half? FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
