Some movies and shows are a mystery to me. Why are they appreciated and loved and high rated by a community which claims to have high standards and no easy ‘suspension of disbelief’ ? OK, maybe I have too high expectations from that community, namely the SF-lovers. I am at least one, but luckily no part of a community.
I had no high expectations from ‘Falling Skies’, when it started, but they were lowered in an instant after watching the first episode, as I had to realize, that this show is not about Aliens, Science Fiction, or war, or even surviving the ultimate invasion, but about the American Dream, which is a dream since it isn’t allowed any longer to be lived out: Adults and teens (male only in the past, but now also female) running around in then open, wavering and shooting all kinds of guns in a so-called situation of self-defense.
That means complete freedom, no more fences, no more tax payments, no more traffic rules. A world full of rednecks, even some with academic degrees (at least those who can yield a gun fast enough), more or less united against the common enemy, some more or less willfully collaborating.
And so it stayed, for the full first season, the full second season, the full third season, and the full fourth season. That is continuity, I said to me, at least.
Maybe some people who get permanently bashed at work can come home, watch this show and go to sleep thinking about their lead role against foreign invaders like…everyone, in case of an invasion, of course.
It doesn’t do the show any good that Steven Spielberg is involved. On the contrary, it seems that a work of Spielberg today does mostly look for satisfying the smallest common denominator of the biggest number of viewers. There he failed with ‘Terranova’, which was one step above ‘Falling Skies’, but at least delivered some good CGI, some interesting theories and strange characters.
Which ‘Falling Skies’ doesn’t. It is a straight-to-beer-can delivery and grabs random pieces from the third-class storytelling wasteland of pulp magazine, that should never see the light of the telly in order to store the cockroaches where they belong.
After unbelievable four seasons, that 80ies-like torture of an SF show will hopefully come to an end with the final 5th season. Oh, it’s a shame, many will cry, there would be so much more to tell….
The only satisfaction that came to me is the idea that the story of the show has some parallelism with the US Iraq adventure. There, they devastated the country, too, tried to install a submissive government, which failed, too. Conversion of the society to western standards failed also. Because at gunpoint, such things usually do not work out very well. Which Israel could have told them long ago (if she would have had realized that, eventually).
However, the season 4 finale was actually so massively ridiculous, predictable and stupid, I thought I would have maybe completely missed the subtle humor (or horror) of all four seasons. Am I a damn idiot, I asked myself ? Yes, I answered, it was idiotic alone to watch this show, hoping it would improve a bit in time.
I stumbled on this series when visiting my son in Louisville. When I got back low and behold TNT was going to run a season 2 marathon. I found season 1 on DVD, ordered it, watched it, and am now watching season 2 that I DVR’ed. I find this series pretty entertaining. Of course there a few things I think are over looked. The enemy uses lights and has beamers for aircraft yet in almost every episode the humans are shown without any light discipline at night. They are shown grouped around campfires, leaving doors open with lights shining brightly, driving with headlights on, looking for skitters using flashlights. If the enemy can see the same spectrum as us and search at night why wouldn’t they see these signs of the human’s??? Plus the aliens have heat seeking abilities so why can’t they locate the heat signatures or campfires, what about satellite surveillance? While I haven’t finished the episodes I have I think it will turn out that the kids that are harnessed are gradually turned into skitters by the harnesses. That would explain why skitters have 6 legs (bioengineering), mechs (made by the overlords I presume) have 2, and the overlords are very stretched out humanoids. Even with the stuff above I do like this series and I will buy season 2 when it is available.
