Stars:  Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Drew Roy, Jessy Schram, Maxim Knight, Connor Jessup, Will Patton, Colin Cunningham, Sarah Sanguin Carter, Seychelle Gabriel, Mpho Koaho, Gloria Reuben, Robert Sean Leonard Writer: Remi Aubuchon Director: Greg Beeman Network: TNT, airs Sunday Nights Original Telecast: August 4, 2013  I could probably forgive FALLING SKIES for not being the clever, thoughtful, morally ambiguous post-apocalyptic Sci-Fi show I would prefer it to be if it were able to string together a few more purely entertaining episodes like last week’s “Journey to Xilbalba.”  But my takeaway from “Brazil,” FALLING SKIES’ Season Three finale, is that I’m […]Read On »

Stars:  Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Drew Roy, Jessy Schram, Maxim Knight, Connor Jessup, Will Patton, Colin Cunningham, Sarah Sanguin Carter, Seychelle Gabriel, Mpho Koaho, Gloria Reuben, Robert Sean Leonard Writer: Bradley Thompson and David Weddle Director: Jonathan Frakes Network: TNT, airs Sunday Nights Original Telecast: July 28, 2013 After faltering last week, FALLING SKIES rebounds mightily this week with “Journey to Xilbalba,” the strongest episode to date of this series’ wildly uneven third season.  While not entirely free of some of the show’s most exasperating elements, the pressure cooker of a plot makes it so that nearly every character is […]Read On »

TV Review: FALLING SKIES – Season 3 – “Strange Brew”

Stars:  Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Drew Roy, Jessy Schram, Maxim Knight, Connor Jessup, Will Patton, Colin Cunningham, Sarah Sanguin Carter, Seychelle Gabriel, Mpho Koaho, Gloria Reuben, Robert Sean Leonard Writer: John Wirth Director: David Soloman Network: TNT, airs Sunday Nights Original Telecast: July 21, 2013 “Strange Brew” begins very differently than we might have expected it to, given that the FALLING SKIES episode that preceded it climaxed with Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) being captured by the Espheni, the alien menace that has invaded earth.  Instead of keeping us in the present, with the aliens and the war for humanity’s future […]Read On »

Regnier Director: Sergio Mimica-Gazzan Network: TNT, airs Sunday Nights Original Telecast: July 14, 2013 Finally, FALLING SKIES is righting the ship.  After spending most of this season meandering through the aftermath of a genocidal alien invasion that somehow no longer seems scary enough, “The Pickett Line” went darker, added a real sense of danger to the proceedings, and in the process made a lot of […]Read On »

The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films recently held the 39th Annual Saturn Awards at The Castaway Starlight Ballroom in Burbank. It was a beautiful day and night high in the hills of Burbank. This award show is not televised, and honors a genre that the main award shows generally overlook. The host for the awards was Lance Reddick (FRINGE) and the awards were dedicated to Ray Harryhausen, who passed away May 7, 2013.  Richard Matheson who was to receive The Visionary Award this night, also passed away June 23, 2013. Jonathan Frakes who was being honored with […]Read On »

Stars:  Noah Wylie, Moon Bloodgood, Drew Roy, Jessy Schram, Maxim Knight, Connor Jessup, Will Patton, Colin Cunningham, Sarah Sanguin Carter, Seychelle Gabriel, Mpho Koaho, Gloria Reuben, Matt Frewer Writer: Heather V. Regnier Director: Greg Beeman Network: TNT, airs Sunday Nights Original Telecast: June 23, 2013 Perhaps the least impressive thing about the alien-invasion drama FALLING SKIES to date is the way that everything in it is pretty much what it seems.   Creating ambiguity or mystery is not exactly a priority for this show.  If one of its characters has the controversial idea that maybe, just maybe, some of these creepy, […]Read On »
