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 »

Fans of the TNT series FALLING SKIES may have wondered why there’s been such a slow burn with the budding romance between Tom (Noah Wyle) and Dr. Anne Glass (Moon Bloodgood) and at Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego, Wyle shed some light on it while speaking to the press. “It’s very difficult to write an interpersonal romance relationship on the show when you’re always trying to establish a base level of threat being ever present,” says Wyle of the hit alien invasion series which just got renewed for Season 3. “So we write these scenes where I would be on […]Read On »

Stars: Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Connor Jessup, Drew Roy, Maxim Knight, Sarah Carter Writer:  Joe Weisberg Director:  John Dahl Network: TNT, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: July 8, 2012 Whereas last season of FALLING SKIES felt like the story meandered a little too much (but it was still pretty good), Season 2 is just one big ass-kicking episode after another. With “Love and Other Acts of Courage” the 2nd Mass learns more about the Skitters and what their possible plan is after a whole gaggle of visitors are wiped out mysteriously, but not by humans. It was in […]Read On »

Stars: Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Connor Jessup, Drew Roy, Maxim Knight, Sarah Carter Writer: Heather V. Regnier Director: Miguel Spaochnik Network: TNT, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: July 1, 2012 FALLING SKIES continues to improve on Season 1 in so many ways. There’s urgency to the Resistance, there’s more emotion and it feels like the series is heading toward something bigger. In many ways, the series feels like it’s also taken some cues from the similarly themed THE WALKING DEAD by parceling out just the right amount of character stuff with its “threat” stuff, and in this case […]Read On »

Now, it could all be true and they are preparing viewers for what would be a larger, more intense fight against the aliens […]Read On »
