By T. Vaughn on December 11, 2014
Format: Amazon Video
Season 4 of Falling Skies starts with a seeming disconnect from the previous season, and the disconnect never gets better. It's as though the series now has two competing teams of writers, one for the first half of each episode and one for the second half. Each team despises the other and writes with an attitude of, “Let 'em try to fix this.”

All science fiction requires a small suspension of disbelief from the viewer. This season requires a suspension of cognitive functions. The plot holes are black holes that suck every atom of credulity from the viewer. There are so many dei ex machina that you can hear the erector-set pieces as they fall.

Adversaries too powerful to fight in one episode are fodder for the 2nd Mass in the next. The enemy is all-observing except when our guys need to lay a trap for them. Character motivations change 180 degrees in the same episode. My guess is that half of the writers were replaced with a computerized dialogue generator to provide the lengthy, contradictory self-explanations.

When you run out of story and can no longer be plausible, stop. I've read there is supposed to be a fifth season, and that requires a real suspension of disbelief. Shows like Serenity are smothered in the crib while things like Falling Skies are harder to kill than an Espheni Mech. Go figure.

Season 4 was so bad it was laughable. It really seems to have been written by a jr high school creative writing class. As it went along, the premise of the show became less and less believable. The sad part is season 1 was so good and it held such promise. Each following season became worse and worse. I can guarantee I won't be watching season 5 when it's released.

This season, and the series, have reached a point of ridiculous, mind numbing drudgery. Every episode is filled with bizarre, no longer heroic, unbelievable weirdness - and not the kind that is riveting. I paid for the season, but can't watch it all the way through. I'm finished with this series. I think I've found the true ending- the screenwriters brains have been eaten by skitters, which is the only explanation for the horrific screenplay.

I have to agree with reviewer Neil Bergman where he states; "It's a combination of Nazi concentration camps and the French underground resistance from WWII." The series is getting well to the point that it is no longer believable sci-fi, which is the kind that I like most. If you replace the enemies here with Nazis, etc., it might as well pass as a WWII drama. At this point, there are too many subplots to follow, and to me, the whole youth Nazi camp brain washing thing is a bit much for me. I will give it a couple of more episodes, but I am quickly loosing interest.

Since I no longer have cable, I have to pay for it here on Amazon Prime Video since Hulu+ does not carry it, or wait a while and watch it on TNT's website with ads. So, this had get more interesting to me or I will cancel my TV pass for this season. Falling Skies Season Four; the skies are falling indeed!

This show had everything it needed to be successful; the writers should be fired.

Now, it seems like every episode is the same. Aliens are coming; hunker down and fight back. Survivors move on.
They find a new place and one of the kids has a new reason to separate from the group to save someone. Dad gets upset and goe to find the kid that left.

Over and Over and Over, nothing new. Same old. I've pretty much lost any interest as the plot is too spaced out (no pun intended) to really care anymore.

Falling Skies started to take a turn for the worse in season 3 with the subplot of Anne's freaky baby. That the baby was "different" could have been shown subtly and without making it silly (the whole dismal mess reminded me of Chucky from the Child's Play (1988) film franchise). Season 4 starts with a dramatic attack by the Espheni, thinning out the ranks of our ragtag crew of heroes. Internment camps are put into place by the fishheads, and the Volm are not in much of a position to help the human protagonists. Both context and gaping plot holes are established with haste in the first episode of s4.

The one thing season 4 had going for it (which ironically was quickly forgotten) is that an Espheni overlord suggests to Tom that overwhelming threats greater than the Espheni are coming to Earth. This is a theme in sci-fi that tends to work well. Your once most feared enemy starts to look like a puppy dog when compared to a bigger and badder foe that rolls into town. Take for example the Scarrans in Farscape, who made the Peacekeepers look like Boy Scouts upon their entrance into the series.

The health of this serial is now in question due to an emphasis on Alexis the Supernatural, who is more fitting as one of Fox Mulder's cases than as a character on the now classic Falling Skies. The special effects and the potential of meeting yet another race of aliens is currently keeping me watching s4 every week.

UPDATE 8/9/14: Episode 7 returns us back to the show we have come to expect.
