TV show description:
This science-fiction TV series begins with the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. In the six months since the initial invasion, the few survivors have banded together outside major cities to begin fighting back. Each day is a test of survival as the citizen soldiers work to protect the people in »
“Falling Skies” had been running on fumes for a while, frustratingly so in its final season, which should have been building up to a big cosmic comeuppance for the Espheni, the alien invaders who had blown much of humanity to smithereens. Instead, the final episode, after a protracted and sometimes-meandering buildup, had a slightly anticlimactic quality, reinforcing, more than anything, that it was overdue for Chicken Little’s warning to finally come true.
For a time representing one of Steven Spielberg’s more successful recent endeavors as a TV producer, this TNT drama began with some promise, increased its ambition in season two and then began to hit rough patches, such as that whole hybrid-alien-baby-who-ages-ridiculously-fast storyline. The final season, in similar fashion, spent too much time dealing with the show’s various soap opera elements, while taking detours that pitted the humans against each other — most notably Everyman Tom Mason »

“The fight isn’t over ’til it’s over,” Colonel Weaver reassured members of the 2nd Mass on more than one occasion. Now it really is over: “Falling Skies” aired the finale of its fifth and final season tonight on TNT. Warning: Spoilers Ahead for “Reborn,” the series finale of “Falling Skies.” Tonight’s finale concluded the tale that began with a ragtag team of alien invasion survivors and ended with that same group of survivors becoming heroes, leading the fight to claim back their home, Planet Earth. Tom Mason and co. have battled all manner of extraterrestrial creatures, gruesome weapons that manipulated once-loyal members of the 2nd Mass to turn on their own, and fellow humans (non-alien-manipulated ones) who were plenty troublesome in their own selfish or fearful agendas, as if a powerful alien threat weren’t trouble enough. After the final push brings the 2nd Mass to Washington, »

After five seasons of a captivating blend of sci-fi, family drama, horror and war stories, “Falling Skies” is coming to an end. The TNT show’s series finale airs this Sunday. Drew Roy’s character, Hal Mason, the oldest of son of Tom Mason (Noah Wyle), is a 17-year-old lacrosse hotshot when an alien invasion pushes Earth’s remaining humans into post-apocalypse survivor mode. Hal has to grow up fast as he becomes one of the 2nd Mass’ strongest fighters, as he watches his girlfriend get turned into an alien weapon, and as he ventures into a dangerous mission to save his younger brother from the clutches of the Skitters. Hal’s journey got wilder when he was turned into “evil Hal” in season 3 thanks to the grotesque Espheni eye worms. Roy delivered an impressive performance as he balanced the eye worm-controlled Hal and the real Hal inside struggling to fight back. »

5.8 Stalag 14th Virginia
There are now two episodes remaining in the run of Falling Skies, and true to form, we've spent the last two instalments mucking about in a Rio Bravo last redoubt military encampment where the commanding officer is running amok and governing by fear while allowing the soldiers to do whatever they like in the name of keeping folks together. Granted, this group seems a bit more together than the underground survivors of Day Of The Dead or the hospital from the fifth season of The Walking Dead, but there's not a whole lot of difference between the zombie survival and the alien survival scenario, except the aliens are less of an omnipresent threat and more of a military force to be avoided until »

Since John Pope first appeared on “Falling Skies” in the series’ second episode, he has been one of the TNT show’s most fun and fascinating characters to watch. In an alien invasion apocalypse, he’s the bad boy looking out for number one, a cynical nuisance, a thorn in Tom Mason’s side. But he’s also been a vital member of the 2nd Mass, loyal to his gang, a badass alien killer, and he even has his heart of gold moments. He’s sometimes an anti-hero character we love to hate — whenever he’s causing trouble within the 2nd Mass as if a war against aliens isn’t trouble enough — but he also comes to reveal struggles and a past that makes him rather relatable. Played by Colin Cunningham, Pope got a love interest in season 4. Sara (Mira Sorvino) has changed Pope, and that’s clearer than ever in the most recent episodes. »

Falling Skies might be in its final season, but it wasn't going to go out without a bang - so it hit San Diego Comic-Con for a final panel.
The cast were on hand to drop hints about what we can expect from the remaining episodes (as well as give us some fun behind-the-scenes titbits), so read on for the 11 most exciting things we learned...
1. Sarah Carter was "scared" about Maggie's love triangle - but season five is about more than that.
"It was scary of course when they first brought in the love triangle storyline," she said. "I didn't know how I was going to react, I certainly didn't know how the fans were going to react, but I ultimately really appreciated how thorough her journey with the spikes was and what do you do when there's this alien force. And actually we can all sort of relate to that, »
Hybrid mystery bugs, a love triangle, and Tom’s new “rage” mentality that is sure to complicate things even further?! Yes, please! Season 5 has already hooked us and is well underway with two episodes down and only eight more to go until the series finale. (*Tear and Heavy Sigh*) So, needless to say, we had a lot to cover today at Comic-Con’s Falling Skies: The Final Farewell panel. The panel was packed with producer and director, Olatunde Osunsanmi, and actors, Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Doug Jones, Conner Jessup, Colin Cunningham, Sarah Carter, and Drew Roy. We learned the cast and crew’s thoughts on, not only some of their favorite moments from the series thus far, but also, some of why we can expect to see in this fifth and final season.

Steven Spielberg-produced alien invasion show “Falling Skies” had its final Comic-Con panel today, as the show nears its series finale later this summer. The show graduated from a smaller room at the San Diego Convention Center where its cast was the past few years, to Ballroom 20, which holds about 5,000 people. It was a panel that got plenty of laughs and cheers from that crowd and that showed off the charm, intelligence and humor that this cast has. Read on for highlights from the “Falling Skies” panel. Hal has a particularly “nasty,” “bloody” scene coming up soon — maybe with Pope? Drew Roy teased a scene for his character that’s in episode 5 this season. Here’s how he described it. Our best guess as to who this other actor is? Colin Cunningham, who plays the persistently troublemaking Pope, who hasn’t had a lot of scenes with Hal. Maybe the »

Say what you like about Ashton Kutcher's Jobs movie, but it did hold one ace up its sleeve that the Danny Boyle-directed biopic doesn't - an actor who actually resembles the character they're playing.
We take a look at a handful of stars who don't look anything like the real-life people they played.
As brilliant an actor as the Shame star is, it's clear from the trailers for Danny Boyle's biopic that little has been done to make Fassbender look like the man he's portraying. Ashton Kutcher has him beat in that department (as does Noah Wyle if you go all the way back to Pirates of Silicon Valley), but with the talent involved here we're expecting Steve Jobs to be a cut above Jobs.
Intriguingly, prior to Fassbender's casting Christian Bale was circling the role before bowing out due to worries »
