Cast, showrunner hint at what's next on 'Falling Skies' at Comic-Con

25 July 2014 8:57 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Falling Skies is halfway through its fourth season, which saw a lot of changes from season 3, along with the addition of new showrunner David Eick. With the 2nd Mass separated after an Espheni attack, our ensemble cast found themselves in very different worlds from one another.

“In Tom’s world we were in darkness. Lexi’s world—it was light. It was almost like Munchkinland,” Eick said during the show’s Comic-Con panel. “In Anne’s world it was very gritty but stripped down.”

At Comic-Con, Eick and the show’s cast hinted at what’s to come on Falling Skies »

TNT Takes San Diego Comic-Con to the Airport

11 July 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Comic-Con continues to find new ways to spread out from the San Diego Convention Center.

Having already flowed into the lawn outside and into area hotels, the airport is the next takeover target for Hollywood’s TV networks and studios turning to the fanfest each year to promote their newest projects.

TNT will plaster the San Diego Intl Airport’s baggage claim carousels, escalators and skyway bridges with images and other messaging for its upcoming series “Legends,” starring Sean Bean, Ali Larter, Morris Chestnut and Tina Majorino (see below). Show premieres Aug. 13.

From there, the marketing campaign will also appear around the city’s Gaslamp Quarter, including a giant billboard covering the side of the Marriott Hotel, next to the convention center.

Naturally, there’s also a social media component. The network is encouraging fans of actor Sean Bean to use the hashtag #DontKillSeanBean in social media postings about the show. »

Wondercon 2014: Falling Skies season 4 interview

22 June 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Laura and Chris chat to Doug Jones, Sarah Carter, Moon Bloodgood, and Seychelle Gabriel about Falling Skies season 4...

Interview

Falling Skies started its fourth season with an episode that turned everything on its head. Actors Sarah Carter, Doug Jones, Moon Bloodgood, and Seychelle Gabriel sat down with us at this year’s Wondercon to let us in on what else this season holds.

So what is going on with Maggie this season?

Sarah Carter: This season, things get very dramatic for Maggie mainly because, when the next season starts off, we are all separated and so there is a lot of time where Hal and Maggie are not together and a love triangle ensues--which I was so shocked by when I read [it]--and obviously I have mixed feelings [about it]. So I am looking forward and I am nervous, actually, what fans are going to think this season because I was »

Falling Skies season 4 episode 1 review: Ghost In The Machine

22 June 2014 11:08 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ron is fully on board with Falling Skies' return. Here's his review of the season 4 opener...

Review

This review contains spoilers.

4.1 Ghost In The Machine

Falling Skies has one real hallmark as a television show: it is relentlessly positive. It seems that no matter what you do to the Mason family and all their friends, everyone's super positive about how things are going to work out pretty much one hundred percent of the time. Sure the folks of the Second Mass might find themselves getting ambushed by an Espheni assault team, separated from one another by some sort of giant laser fence that turns people into paste, and kidnapped and herded into an internment camp/ghetto combination within the ruins of Charleston, but hey, as long as there are Masons around, everything's probably going to work out for the best.

Fortunately, there are a lot of Masons, because »

Falling Skies Boss Talks Empire Strikes Back Influence, 'Strange Bedfellows' and 'Hideous' New Flying ETs

20 June 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

When TNT’s Falling Skies resumes the fight for Earth this Sunday at 10/9c, the 2nd Mass will in short order be splintered like never before, separating key players into distinct (and distinctly dangerous) new locales.

“We were looking at [Star Wars: Episode V] The Empire Strikes Back as sort of the model,” says David Eick (Battlestar Galactica), who took over as the showrunner for Season 4. “Theres something compelling about having your heroes separated, cordoned off from each other, and then you find yourself as an audience yearning for their reunion. You of course become more aware, in a heightened sense, of the value that each character brings, »

TV Review: ‘Falling Skies,’ Season Four

19 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The creative roller-coaster ride that is “Falling Skies” opens season four on a downward arc, as the TNT series goes a little gaga with its alien-invasion metaphors, including Hitler Youth-like camps to re-educate younger prisoners. While the show picked up considerable momentum in its last go-round — and remains perfectly watchable popcorn fare — the notion of dueling alien constituencies, with one friendly to the humans, risks spinning “Skies” off its axis. Noah Wyle’s sturdy Everyman, who frets about his extended brood, remains extremely valuable in grounding the show, but for all the Skitters he’s dispatched, even he can’t overcome the show’s camp factor.

Suffice it to say whatever gains the human insurgency scored — with help from another alien force, the Volm — are pretty quickly erased, scattering the members of the central group while setting up new dangers. That includes leaving some incarcerated and others to battle on, »

Scandal, Utopia, Wentworth Prison: Tube Talk Q&A

1 May 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, but nuts to that - we want our favourite shows back on the telly box, and we want them back now!

Happily then, this week's Tube Talk Q&A is stuffed to the gills with tasty telly teasers, scoop and all the latest UK air dates for your Us favourites.

Utopia series 2 air date? First series was best original TV in ages.

"It's very much under wraps," protested Utopia series two (and Game of Thrones) star Rose Leslie when we quizzed her about an air date at the Battersea Power Station first annual party last night. So, because we didn't want to get expelled from a fancy shindig by interrogating a well-known actress, we're gonna have to stick with that loose mid-2014 date Channel 4 gave us a while ago.

Rose did throw us a few juicy Utopia bones, though, promising that »

WonderCon: Moon Bloodgood and Seychelle Gabriel on the Big Changes Coming to Falling Skies Season 4

20 April 2014 10:42 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When Falling Skies season 4 starts this June on TNT, fans will see a new direction for the show.  Much of that is due to the influence of brand new showrunner David Eick (Battlestar Galactica), who took over this season for the departing Remi Aubuchon.  Characters will evolve, storylines will branch out and new love triangles will emerge, but the looming alien threat will remain as the central driving force in the show. Stars Moon Bloodgood (Dr. Ann Glass) and Seychelle Gabriel (Lourdes Delgado) were at WonderCon today with some of their fellow cast members to give fans a sneak peek at the upcoming season.  I had a chance to speak with them before the panel about what’s coming for their characters and how the show’s changes will affect them.  Falling Skies also stars Noah Wylie, Will Patton, Sarah Carter, Mpho Koaho and Doug Jones.  Check out what they »

Jack Paglen To Help Battlestar Galactica Transcend To The Big Screen

8 April 2014 1:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sometimes, there’s a movie project that just doesn’t go away. They rumble on in the background for decades, with concepts kept alive only by the sheer willpower of those dedicated individuals involved. Battlestar Galactica is one such project – but now, it seems like it’s one step closer to fruition as Transcendence writer Jack Paglen has been hired to deliver a script.

Created by Glen A. Larson (Knight Rider, Magnum P.I, Quincy M.E) as a science fiction TV series in 1978, Battlestar Galactica ran for one season – ending in April 1979. It featured the premise that would provide the basis for every iteration of the show that followed – that our future humanity has migrated to a distant area of the galaxy, known as the Twelve Colonies, from where they have been defending themselves against a cybernetic race known as The Cylons. During a vicious attack, human survivors flee aboard spaceships, »

Transcendence Writer Jack Paglen to Pen Battlestar Galactica Movie

7 April 2014 2:46 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Over two years ago, Bryan Singer was circling a film adaptation of the 1970s TV series Battlestar Galactica with John Orloff (Anonymous) set to write the script.  For those unfamiliar with Battlestar Galactica, it centers on a war between humanity and a race of machines called "Cylons".  Since 2011, word on the film has gone quiet, Singer has moved on, and it looked like Ronald D. Moore and David Eick's excellent Sci-Fi series would be the only adaptation.  However, Variety is reporting that you can't keep a good cylon down, and that Universal has brought on Jack Paglen (Transcendence) to write the screenplay.  Original series creator Glen Larson is still on board to produce. Since I'm a big fan of Moore/Eick's adaptation, I'm obviously a little skeptical of a movie.  But Battlestar is a premise with a lot of potential, and since I haven't seen Transcendence, I have no »

Big Screen Battlestar Galactica Reboot Moves Forward at Universal

7 April 2014 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Initially planned some years back for Bryan Singer to direct, Universal is moving forward with their big screen reboot of the Battlestar Galactica franchise. Variety reports that Transcendence scribe Jack Paglen has been hired to provide the script. "Battlestar Galactica" was originally created by Glen A. Larson and began with the TV series in 1978, followed by a brief sequel TV series, "Galactica: 1980" two years later. Ronald D. Moore and David Eick launched a rebooted television version in 2004, while a prequel to that series, titled "Caprica," debuted in 2010, followed by a webseries, "Blood & Chrome," in 2012. Paglen is no stranger to science fiction. In addition to the upcoming Transcendence , he's drafted Ridley »
