The title is based on an African fable of the same name about a chicken named Chicken Little who is hit on the head, believes that the heavens are breaking into pieces and runs around shouting "The sky is falling!" The phrase is also a common expression indicating a hysterical or mistaken belief that disaster is imminent. See more »

Ten Out Of Ten Classic
30 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

The first contact with space aliens in an Irwin Allen production.

Eleven Days To Zero was the pilot to Voyage but The Sky Is Falling is the pilot to the Irwin Allen science fiction world. Yes, I am aware that a few Voyage hours before this had some sci-fi elements in them but "Sky" goes all out with an alien spaceship and the works!

The alien ship in question was first used in Fox's The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951).

Everything about this tension filled drama is wonderful and we get to see TWO Richard Baseharts which makes it even better.

If you know someone who has never seen Voyage and just wants to see one single episode...this is the hour to screen to that person. Everything is here...the tense drama, Basehart all over the place, good effects of the Seaview, moody music, etc. The only thing missing is the Flying Sub (which would not appear until season two). This episode gets ten out of ten.
