One Review for “Falling Skies”

  1. Ira Schwartz says:

    A new TNT hour long Sci-Fi drama about an alien invasion premiered last night on TNT. The press release about the series states, “The world is left in tatters after a sudden, unprovoked and unexplained invasion by aliens, leaving the planet’s remaining human population to fight for survival against the occupiers…” After watching the first two episodes last night I now know the reason for the invasion, to stop this series from filming anymore episodes.
    “Falling Skies” was created by “Saving Private Ryan” author Robert Rodat and produced by Steven Spielberg. It stars “ER” and “The Librarian’s” Noah Wyle as Tom Mason, a troubled Dad who appears to also be one of the leaders of the resistance. The alien invaders have forced humanity to flee for their lives, again, and to try and survive off the tattered remains of humanity while attempting to drive off the “The Little Green Men.” Yep they really are green.
    When I first heard about this series several months ago I looked forward to seeing it in hopes it would breath a little fresh air to the “I don’t know what to do next” sci fi genre. I was so wrong. The premier episode “Live and Learn” was written by Rodat and did manage to establish the main characters. Unfortunately it did so in such a boring fashion you really didn’t care. To make matters worse, after the first episode, they immediately ran another, “The Armory” which was even more boring than the first.
    Stories about aliens invading Earth are nothing new. Orson Wells infamous 1938 Halloween radio broadcast of a modernized version of H.G. Wells’s book “The War of the Worlds” is still a matter of discussion today. Since then numerous movies, TV shows and books have tackled the problem. Wells book spawned several movies including the 1953 version starring Gene Barry and Ann Robinson and a terrible 2005 version starring Tom Cruise; The Sy-Fy channels “War of the Worlds” starring C. Thomas Howell which was a boring and visually cheap reworked version of the original story; probably one of the better movies dealing with the subject is 1996’s Centropolis Production’s “Independence Day” starring Wil Smith.
    As far as “Falling Skies” is concerned both the1983 miniseries “V” and the CBS series “Jericho” were far and away better television. Even though “Jericho” was about a man made apocalypse rather than an alien one, it dealt with the heart aches and difficulties humanity would face trying to survive in a hostile environment far better and much more interestingly than “Falling Skies” does.
    So in short, the series is boring with nothing new to offer and should be relegated as of right now, to the lowest priority setting on your DVR.
