    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

    I hate that they brought Pope back for last encounter with Tom, they should have just left him dead in that explosion a few weeks ago

    ^^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.

    That is my gripe. The whole stuff with pope itself, took what, 3 episodes away in essence.. Then add in the 3 with camp 'ran by a skitter in a human form'..

    That was one of my biggest gripes with this series so far.. Key characters just like SGU/SGA/SW/Trek etc seem to be immune to dying..
    I am getting SICK OF IT, and i thought FS was going to break that mold.

    did not even see any of other fighters they were in name only
    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..

    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...

    Still...gah!

    It seems to be a trend in apocalyptic movies/shows.. When they finish off, they either don't even BOTHER showing reconstruction, or completely skip it.

    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.

    Woopty do.

    I am wondering though.. Has anyone seen any other fan boards discussing falling skies and see what THEY are posting about this..?

    I wish Marty had survived true he was only a minor character but i liked him he wasn't a bad guy when he ambushed the Second Mass he was just in a tough situation, he deserved to survive as a biochemist his skills would have been useful in rebuilding after the defeat of the Espheni.

    I wasn't expecting a big final battle either, you don't always need a big final battle or a massive weapon to defeat your enemy i just watched the TNG episode I'Borg Picard was planning to use something that would appear harmless but would be very destructive to the borg http://en.memory-alpha.wikia.com/wik...ogical_anomaly

    I disagree his supposed death at the base didn't feel very Pope to me, how he did die was a lot better than his supposed death by conveniently placed barrels filled with explosive contents, exploding barrels is the biggest cliche in not just video games but tv shows and movies, oh what a good idea i'll take cover behind these barrels filled with explosive content surely nothing can get me here then they explode and Pope would be oh hell why did i choose to take cover here of all places.

    The Esphini could have modified their tactics when they saw how far humans had come since the primitive humans had killed the queen's daughter to make it harder for the humans to fight back, the Esphini had some idea of what they were up against so they used every weapon in their arsenal against the humans, eye worms, skitters and hornets, mechs and super mechs, overlords, the Lexi clone, Captain Marshall, those plant like things that could only be destroyed by flamethrowers i forget what they are called, harnessed human children, Karen, and those bug things that exited through Jamil's mouth when the 2nd Mass set up a base the hospital. I think i got everything that the Esphini used against the humans.

    I liked the final encounter with Pope it felt a lot better than his supposed death at the base.

    I'm guessing it takes place several months if not longer after the final battle seeing as the Washington monument was being rebuilt and it had only partially been destroyed by the Esphini either during the initial invasion or since they set up a base in DC.

    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?
