falling skies
« on: July 28, 2011, 12:21:09 AM »
i have been watching this and really like it.  it's kind of like an alien version of Jericho.  check it out on TNT and you can catch the back episodes.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Been watching this too - funny the Jericho connection, that was exactly how I explained it to a coworker not even an hour ago.

Leave it up to a guy named Clayton to be a bad guy  :-D

Pope is an interesting character, I like him in this - he adds balance in a messed up world.

I like how the Alien Ships, which we haven't really got a tour of yet, have planted themselves as if docked or moored, unlike the mother ship in District 9. The "Grounding" of the alien ships adds a feel of domination.

I think this may make it a few seasons without jumping the shark too badly. And who knows, they may only be miles from the next BIG resistance, so as said in Galaxy Quest "Never give up... Never surrender!"

P.S. About Galaxy Quest, if you never saw this Tim Allen and Sigourney Weaver movie, watch it - it is one of the best Startrek parody kind of movie you'll ever catch - funny and lands on my top ten list :)
