Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of Falling Skies Was Thrilling! Tonight’s Episode Presented Many New Questions And Mysteries, Such As Ben’s Future, And Evidence That Shows That The Skitters May Be In The Same Situation As The Humans. I’m Really Curious To See What Happens In This Season, And I’m Surprised That It Hasn’t Been Renewed For A 3rd Season (Yet). Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Falling Skies. Watch Falling Skies Live: Sunday’s At 9/8C. On TNT

Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of Falling Skies Was Great! The 2nd Mass. Encountered Another Group Of Survivors, And Weaver Was Able To Re-Unite With His Daughter. These New Developments Really Helped Develop The Episode. I’ve Been A Fan Of The Show Since Season 1, And I’m Really Hoping That The Series Gets Renewed For A Third Season. Overall, I Would Absolutely Recommend Falling Skies. Watch Falling Skies Live: Sunday’s At 9/8C. On TNT.
