So what do you know? Just when I was about to give up all hope, along come two watchable episodes of Falling Skies. Not classic, or great, or deeply memorable. Don’t take me for an advocate at this point. But competently written and filmed, yes.
Hopefully it’s a start.
“The Pickett Line”
This episode does something neither the Espheni nor the Volm have done to date this season. It establishes actual narrative tension. And it involves mostly just humans. So, it’s like, you know, an actual story, not just a strip-mined collection of science fiction plot devices.
