Hey Daddy Can I Hunt Aliens Too?
19 June 2012 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

Falling Skies could be a lot like Red Dawn, with the locals fighting aliens instead of communists. It could be a fun series about patriotism, survival, human values, social values, community, and overcoming the odds.

However, the theme of this show is often depressing, and a lot of it is due to the guilt that Noah Wylie's character is always bringing. He drags the mood down, and so do his depressing kids. This show is too much about Wylie, and his three annoying kids. They really kill the buzz, whenever the rest of the group is getting ready to fight the aliens.Wylie and his kids want to understand the aliens, they want to make friends, they just want to get along.

That is really not what this series should be about. You cannot put a whole drama, guilt-trip, remorse twist on what should really be an action show. The endless whiny sound of kids who got hurt by the aliens is annoying. Shut up and start fighting. We don't need to understand the aliens, we just need to kill them. It would be nice to watch a fun action adventure show about a group of humans fighting the aliens and enjoying it.

In spite of the fact that there are many other good characters on this show, it is always about Will Patton and Noah Wylie. I guess they are the stars of Falling Skies, but Will Patton and Noah Wylie are both second-rate supporting actors. When they are on any network series, or in a major motion picture, look for their names right before the end of the credits. Will Patton was usually playing a thug or informant in most movies. So having him as the leader of the group is not impressive.

Noah Wylie is a big zero in general. He seems to be trying to channel John Lennon in every episode, and I guess Moon Bloodgood is his Yoko. It would be nice to let the other characters in this show grow and become more important. There are a lot of other actors in Falling Skies, and they have a lot more to offer than Will Patton and Noah Wylie.
