Falling Skies: The Complete Third Season [3 Discs] [DVD]
The third season is full of twists & turns that the first two seasons didn't do. It was a nice change, & some original thinking on the writer's behalf. Hal becomes paralyzed, & it's because of the new overload Karen. But he's secretly leaving New Charlestown at night, & walking without the knowledge to himself, & to his new love interest Maggie. But Maggie's not letting Hal go without a fight! Also the Volm are working on a group secret wrapon, & only the new President Tom Mason knows what it's for! But there is a traitor in their midst! Who is it? It takes all season to find out! Alot of people die in season 3. But as I said, the drama is rich! The boy's are growing up fast. Little Mattie the most! He's becoming get quite the soldier. As the rebel skitter's are now in a colony of their own, right outside of New Charlestown, along with the Volm, & thier ship. Everybody's trying to survive, & even Pope is flourishing in the New World. Or so he likes to think, until it all changes! There's so much more happening then I can write about! So watch & see what all happens, buy buying season 3 of Fallen Skies! Enjoy. I know we did!
Bought this set for the $22 introductory price,and couldn't be happier. One of the few sci-fi shows that have come out in the last few years that carries its momentum from season to season. It doesn't get mired down with love triangles and soap opera-esque plotlines. It just seems to steam along constantly evolving and keeping me and my wife's interest peaqued. Low budget production with likeable characters and good solid acting. I love this show.
Recently binge-watched this show since I haven't been up to date since 1st season aired. This show really improves by 2nd season. Got addicted watching it. Probably the best modern sci-fi show since V (2009) got cancelled by ABC. There's a good amount of blu-ray extras which is great.
The story of small groups of humans fighting the big bad aliens trying to take over Earth is a great basic plot. And, it's Sci-Fi so you expect certain aspects to be 'out there'. But, I still expect a Sci-Fi show to still be realistic as much as possible. And, I expect a program to continue to follow the rules it sets itself. Example, in one early episode the aliens could easily find anything that produced heat, so the humans had to got to great length to prevent a heat signature from their vehicles. I guess the aliens have suddenly lost that ability, because the humans don't take the same measures with their vehicles that they did in that one episode. Also, the aliens have all of this incredible technology that they only use in extremely limited ways. Things that are insect size that can fly, enter a person through their eye, then control the person? So, why not use those things a lot more? And, an alien race that needs Earth's nuclear power to supply their machines? Give me a break. Some of the episodes are so contrived. It's like the writers want an episode where the humans go on the offensive and attack something so they pull this aspect of the aliens needing nuclear fuel out of nowhere. There are so many examples of that. They could simply stay with the basic plot, develop the characters even more, quit all the silly subplots, make the events more believable and not contradict themselves in their writing and the series would be awesome. The potential is there and they squander it.

Wonderful alien invasion survival show!
Absolutely engrossing tale of survival. The special effects are truly breath-taking and can really take your breath away and leave you with your mouth hanging open in awe. The twisting and the turning and unpredictable sabotage will keep you on edge. I wish the seasons were longer, but love every minute that they give us. Awesome cast.

Another stellar season
Against the odds of sappy family interactions weighing the show down unduly, Falling Skies became a full-blown action drama in its 3rd season. Very impressive SFX for TV, combined with accelerated pacing, made this a very fast hour each week. Noah Wyle, like Liam Neesom, has unexpectedly become a true action star.
The dvd's are great because you can go back to any seen that you may have missed. or you can just watch some parts as many times as you like.
The filming is great.
Acting is believable. The charters are like real people that I have known.
Dedication to duty and the saving of others.
