What a load of utter crap.. And THIS is what we got for a SERIES not just a season Finale?
I am sorry, but if i paid for this in a Theater i would be demanding my money back....
What an horrible series finale. Completely anticlimactic and unepic.
I had to watch the series finale of Spartacus afterward to restore my faith in television (one of the best series finale EVER in my book).

That was completely and utterly ****.
I can't find any redeeming quality about it at all. What the hell were the writers thinking.
Agreed. First off WAY too rushed. All of season five could have been done so differently, and they wasted valuable time on side stuff when they could have been(leading up to ) defeating the enemy. That is my finger on the problem. Just way too rushed. They could have done 4 or 5 episodes on what they did last night and fleshed it out.
And(Spoiler) did they REALLY need to have Pope in there again?
Got to agree, far too rushed and far too easy...
And only two true deaths, of characters we only met this season...
As much as I liked Anne, it would have been better if she had stayed dead...
Shame this season ended so badly, started off well...
I was halfway expecting to see Pope in those final scenes in Washington DC. After all, we didn't see him die. We expected him to be dead a couple of weeks ago from the explosion he was in. Yet here he was again.
well that was a big middle finger after 5 years, deus ex machina nonsense, primitive humans could defeat the espheni yet modern humans struggled, pope not being dead, that thing with anne dying but not dying, the writers really dropped the ball on this
WTF were they thinking I though this was building to a mega battle on Lord of the rings style
how wrong could I be had they run out of money for the special effects ?????
did not even see any of other fighters they were in name only
and as ever all people that died were new if they were in star trek would be wearing red shirts
really under impressed
Was I the only one that did not expect a big final battle ? They introduced the queen & the kill the queen & kill them all plot. So that no big budget final battle was needed. I saw that coming

^^Yes me too knew that all it would take was to hit the queen with that device given to Tom by the Dornia(spelling?)
But yes they could have left out the encounter with Pope, IMO unless it was to show that he lived on.
But he wasn't in the last scene when they were all gathered together.
I am getting SICK OF IT, and i thought FS was going to break that mold.
Agreed. I really wished they had made the ep 2 hrs, so they could have at least SHOWED us some of those other militas, other than just one group maybe a dozen bikers strong..did not even see any of other fighters they were in name only
All in all, i an so saddened and mad at how this ended, i don't even think i WANT to add Falling skies to my rewatch list, let alone add it to my DVD collection.
The last scene was far too cheesy...
I mean, where did they get all the clothes, champagne? How long after the final battle was this?
I too wasn't expecting a massive battle, but you would think their Queen would be better guarded after all the 2nd Masses victories and the fact that primitive humans killed her sister...
1. As people have said...bad pacing for this ep.
2. Scratch that...bad pacing for the entire season.
3. Still, interesting to get more details on the Espheni's motivation's at the end...
And i agree. There should have been much more of a focus on the final battle.. We saw what.. Tunnels with eggs.. Someone shooting off a grenade in close quarters.. A few nobodies die, and almost lost the doc.
I am wondering though.. Has anyone seen any other fan boards discussing falling skies and see what THEY are posting about this..?
I've read a couple of reviews and they are mostly being let down...
I liked the ending i would have hated to see any or all of the characters die, i've become so attached to all the characters over the last 5 seaons and i'd hate to lose any of them.
LOL at Anthony's last name on that uniform he was wearing that's assuming that is his real last name and that it wasn't allready on the uniform when he got it from whereever he got it, Welker maybe that was some behind the scenes staff having a joke at Anthony's expense since he did welk out on the 2nd Mass and run off with Pope, is welked out even an expression/saying i'm sure i heard it used somewhere years ago.
I'm guessing that the queen didn't feel the need to be guarded by any underlings because she might have been feeling overconfident that they could defeat the humans, overconfidence can often be the undoing of any bad guy.
^^ I was wondering that, too. Perhaps names of all the actors and others involved behind the scenes over the last 5 years?
