TNT's Falling Skies is set in the aftermath of an alien attack which has left much of the world incapacitated. As survivors band together to fight back, each day is a test of survival. And according to star Noah Wyle, making the series was no day at the beach, either. Wyle tells Digital Spy he is glad the series wasn't cancelled in mid-season, so that the audience could get some "closure." That said, Wyle also confesses that making Falling Skies was a real "slog."
Before ending on August 30, 2015, Falling Skies ran for five seasons on TNT. The Falling Skies cast includes: Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Drew Roy, Jessy Schram, Connor Jessup, Maxim Knight, Colin Cunningham, Sarah Carter, Peter Shinkoda, and Mpho Koaho. Read on for more from Wyle. Read More… »
Wyle had starred in three TV movies before the series was made but admitted to Digital Spy that he was "really not excited about [the TV show] at all" when it was first proposed.
"I really enjoyed making the movies, and I would have been happy to continue doing that," he said. "And I was doing Falling Skies when this got proposed and I was reticent to jump right in to another series on the same network.
"And I had some reservations about whether or not we'd be able to pull off the same kind of quality by trying to do it week in and week out, that we might dilute the character and we might dilute the franchise if we try to do too much. So I really balked at the idea."
But Wyle »
The TNT series finished after five seasons earlier this year and Wyle - who now stars in The Librarians - told Digital Spy that he's satisfied with the way it came to a close.
"I'm happy that it ended!" he joked. "And I'm happy that we got to write our own ending rather than just being cancelled in the off season.
"It was a very difficult show to do and it would have felt incredibly unsatisfying for both the participants as well as the audience if we hadn't had the chance to give some closure to that story and see these characters be successful.
"I'm proud that the show went to five seasons, I'm very proud of the character arc that I got the chance to play, »

Since he first appeared as medical student John Carter in the Emergency Room of County General Hospital, Ill., Noah Wyle has specialised in playing a particular type of brainy hero. During his record-breaking tenure in ER, Wyle was notably the first to portray a fictional version of Steve Jobs in biopic Pirates Of Silicon Valley, a part that earned him an invitation from Mr Jobs to play a prank on the audience at the 1999 Macworld Expo.
Among a host of stage and screen roles, Wyle also played the small but memorable role of Dr Monitoff, a science teacher with an interest in parallel universes in 2001's Donnie Darko, followed in 2004 with the part of Flynn Carsen, perpetual student-turned-Indiana-Jones-type in three The Librarian television movies. »

“The Grinder” creators Andrew Mogul and Jarrad Paul did about as well as producers could possibly do when casting their “Rob Lowe type” — they landed Rob Lowe. On “The Grinder,” Lowe plays television lawyer Dean Sanderson, who moves back to his small hometown after a stint in Hollywood, thinking his time on the small-screen qualifies him to run his family’s law firm. “If you’re gonna go into cardiac arrest around somebody you’d rather it be Noah Wyle,” Mogul recalled a recurring hypothetical conversation he and Paul had well before their idea for “The Grinder” actually hit paper. »

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. »
