Review:

First Off, I Would Like To Say That I Am Glad That Falling Skies Has Officially Been Renewed For A Third Season, Which Will Air Next Summer. Tonight’s Finale Of Falling Skies Was Mind Blowing! In Tonight’s Finale, The 2nd Mass Carried Out A Mission To Destroy A Deadly And Highly Destructive Weapon That The Aliens Were Constructing. The 2nd Mass Also Planned To Kill The Overlord That They Previously Captured, After Learning That The Overlord Ran The Alien Military Operations. The 2nd Mass’s Mission Was Successful, But At The End Of The Episode A Mysterious Human Like Alien Landed. The Alien Looked Almost Like Master Chief From The Video Game Franchise: Halo. It Is Hinted That Tom May Have Had A Previous Encounter With This Alien, But It’s Not Clear If The Alien Is An Ally Or An Enemy. Hopefully For The Second Mass, The Alien Is An Ally, As Thousands Of Other Aliens Just Like Him Landed, As Well. Falling Skies Has Manged To Build An Exponentially Great Fan base, Which Includes Myself, As Well. I’ve Been A Fan Of The Show Since It Premiered, Last Summer, And I Truly Am Excited For What Season 3 Of Falling Skies Has In Store. Overall, I Would Highly Suggest That You Catch On The First Two Seasons Of Falling Skies, And Be Ready For The Third Season, When It Airs, Next Summer.

Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of Falling Skies Was Thrilling! The 2nd Mass Has Finally Made It To Charleston, But It Seems That It May Not Be What They Expected. The Leader Of The Colony Is Tom’s Former Mentor, But It Seems That Since The Invasion, He Has Drastically Changed (And Not For The Better). I Really Enjoyed Tonight’s Episode, As Many New Mysteries Were Presented, Such As: What Are Arthur Manchester’s True Intentions? Tonight’s Episode Is What The Entire Season (And Series) Has Been Building Up To. I’ve Been A Fan Of The Show Since The Series Premiered, And I Can’t Wait For This Sunday’s Season Finale!

Review:

Well, What Can I Say About Tonight’s Episode? Tonight’s Episode Of Falling Skies Was Magnificent! I Was Really Excited To See The 2nd Mass Re-Unite With Porter.

Review:

The Season 2 Premiere Of Falling Skies Definitely Lived Up To My Expectations. The Premiere Introduced Many New Questions, Which Will Most Likely Be Answered Later In The Season. If You Thought That Season 1 Was Intriguing, Wait Until You Watch The Season 2 Premiere. There Are Many Mysteries Carried Over From Season 1 Such As, Are The Skitters Still Able To Control Ben? It Was Hinted That Ben May Still Be Under the Skitters’ Control. I’ve Been A Fan Of The Show Since The Pilot Episode Last Year, And Tonight’s Premiere Made Me Love The Series Even More. I Would HIGHLY SUGGEST You Check Out The Series. Watch Falling Skies Live: Sunday’s At 9/8C. On TNT
