    I really like this show. There is an equality between men and women which is very appealing as well as unusual. Even the younger ‘survivors’ participate in ways that shows they are protected but important members of the team. Love the twists and turns in the plot. Find myself screaming “turn around” and “don’t trust her” at the TV. Great writing and acting.

    The Peoples Republic of MASS fighting aliens? The Eastern Seaboard version of France? Collaborators yes. Fighters no. That’s not sci-fi….that’s fantasy!

    I 100% agree. It has gotten better with each episode. If they were able to get the writing in check, it could be one of the best sci fis ever. So much to work with. The poblem is picking and choosing which storylines to develop. Looking fwd to seeing what road Ben takes. Does he become some type of maniacal leader for the skitters, or the savior of the human race. Either way, we have a story within a story. Kinda like Peter Parker beginning to develop his powers. Just mad I am all caught up and have to wait week to week to see new episodes.

    I love falling skies and defintely think it should be renewed. The story telling is fantastic, and the show is very emotional also. I really can’t wait to see the mason family grow and find out whats in store for the 2nd mass. Nonetheless a very entertaining show to say the least.
