Is Falling Skies surprising anyone else?

I usually find TV shows pretty predictable—even the ones I like—but Falling Skies keeps turning in directions I’m not expecting. The most recent episode brought back a character I wasn’t expecting to see return. Even after she appeared, I wasn’t sure what direction the story was going, right up until I was supposed to know. I think it one of the pitfalls of studying story, you see the foundations being laid and you can predict the direction of the story—not so with falling skies. At least, not for me. What’s even better, is that these twists explain details of earlier episodes that made no sense to me at the time. I’m really loving it.

Have you been caught off guard by the story twists so far this season?

  1. Of course, it’s surprising me around every corner because I have/had no preconceived notions of what should happen. I suppose that’s because I’ve been watching reality shows like House Hunters International for so long I’d forgotten my sci-fi-loving roots and how these stories typically unfold/progress!

    And I didn’t recognize she was the same character until just now. 🙂

    • I haven’t been watching the previews – just diving into each episode. Wondering if that makes it more surprising. Hmm? I love the direction it is taking this season.

  2. I’ve never watched the show but I do watch the promos and it looks super interesting, especially this season. Makes me want to watch On Demand from the beginning – that and Modern Family.

    • It is definitely an ongoing arc drama so starting at the beginning is not a bad idea. The first episode starts slow, but it picks up pretty quickly after that.
