When you get down to it, Falling Skies is Dawson's Creek with aliens. For a series based in reality, the 'reality' is a few slices short of 3.14 ... but what's left ought go well with some nice warm milk. Tom Cruise can jump on a couch to sell a film and Falling Skies can sell commercial space -- probably Gerber. I would recommend Falling Skies to people who aren't actually dealing with reality -- it would be a great show to watch while in their safe place under a quilt made of their blue ribbon collection.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. Very Predictable

This is a very good sci-fi alien invasion series. This season was an upgrade over the first season. The action was amped up as was the emotional connection to the characters. The effects are top notch. Some of the acting is not great, but it is all decent enough. Must see tv for any sci-fi fan.

This series, with this season is particular is the best. Season 3 is out but I personally like this season better. It has a great plot and you see many changes and developments in characters such as Ben. If you are a Ben Mason (Connor Jessup) fan then this is the season for you :)

Tom Mason is mysteriously released from alien captivity at the beginning of the second season of Falling Skies. Tom rejoins the 2nd Massachusetts Militia Regiment (2nd Mass.) but not without suspicion from many in the regiment. Throughout the second season the regiment battles the skitters, robots and their alien overseers. While the 2nd Mass. is held up at an airport a barnstormer flies in and relays news that a new continental congress and army has been established in Charleston, SC. After some debate the 2nd Mass. decides to trek down to Charleston in hopes joining forces to better fight the alien invasion. Ben Mason begins receiving improbable messages from the harness spikes still lodged in his spine. To Ben's surprise, and the 2nd Mass.' skepticism, it is learned that some of the skitters have developed a resistance movement to try and overthrow their alien overseers. On their journey south the 2nd Mass. continues to battle the skitters and robots as they suffer more hardship and loss of life. Upon arriving in Charleston the 2nd Mass.finds out that their situation may be worse than they originally thought.
