Tonight’s Episode Of Falling Skies Was Phenomenal! Tonight’s Episode Definitely Had New Twists And Presented New Mysteries. I’ve Been A Fan Of The Show, Since It’s Premiere Last Summer, And Tonight’s Episode Definitely Showed Me Why I Am A Fan! Tonight’s Episode Expanded On The Mystery Of The Overlords, And Their Reason For Invading Earth. Sadly, One Of The Fairly Important Characters Died, Which Will Definitely Affect The 2nd Mass. The Next New Episode Seems Like It Wil Expand Even More On The Mystery Of The Overlords/Aliens, Which Should Be Interesting. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Falling Skies. Watch Falling Skies Live: Sunday’s At 9/8C. On TNT

Side Note: Falling Skies Will Be Having A Short Hiatus. Be Sure To Catch An All New Episode: August, 8th At 9/8C. Only On TNT.
