Review:

Tonight’s Episode Was Great! Tonight’s Episode Focused On An Individual Case, Much Like Law And Order Does. The Show Has Been Able To Keep Me Interested Since The Pilot Episode. I Love How The Show Focuses On Individual Cases, While Also Focusing On Longmire’s Progression/Experiences. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Longmire. Watch Longmire Live: Sunday’s At 10/9C. On A&E.

Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of Falling Skies Was Thrilling! The Episode Introduced A New Possibility That A Government/Safe Haven Has Been Established In Charleston. Also, One Of The Shows (Fairly Important) Characters Passes Away. Tonight’s Episode Also Introduced Quite A Bit Of Mystery, Such As: Is Charleston Really A Safe Haven, Or Is It A Trap? I’m Really Excited About The 2nd Season Of Falling Skies, And I Can’t Wait To See What It Has In Store. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Falling Skies. Watch Falling Skies Live: Sunday’s At 9/8C. On TNT.
