By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on August 18, 2011
Format: DVD
When the TNT network announced a Spielberg produced science fiction epic for its summer slate of programming, I was eager to sample the wares. With its massive advertising campaign, the network clearly had high expectations--and initial ratings were strong and instantaneous causing the show to receive an immediate second season order. Season One consists of ten episodes that weave a solid story of survivors in the aftermath of an alien invasion. Channeling a low key energy, as opposed to a pulse pounding tone, the show does a nice job establishing every day folks caught up in extraordinary circumstances. The piece's central theme is that we're all heroes in our own way and we're all stronger for standing together. It is a remarkably earnest presentation that remains mildly downbeat without ever seeming hopeless. This matter-of-fact feel is both one of the strongest elements of the show, but also one of the things that kept me from truly investing in the drama.

In truth, there is nothing particularly revelatory in the plotting of "Falling Skies." While I enjoyed the creature conception of the skitters (one of the alien life forms), admired the ambitious special effects, and was intrigued by some of the concepts (particularly the harnessed children)--I couldn't escape the general feeling that I'd seen it all before in countless similar variations. With a familiar feeling narrative, then, it is left to the screenwriters and the characterizations to make the show really pop. And I'm not sure that a memorable cast of characters has yet to evolve. Noah Wyle does most of the heavy lifting and makes an admirable every man hero. But many of the peripherals don't really stand out as interesting or fully developed individuals. When Steven Weber shows up for a few episodes, he creates real passion.

Produced by Stephen Spielberg and teleplay contributions by a number of writers, including Robert Rodat (best known for SAVING PRIVATE RYAN) and Mark Verheiden (who wrote 9 episodes for the new BATTLESTAR GALACTICA and will be an executive producer for the upcoming DARK TOWER series). First off, this is not INDEPENDENCE DAY, people. It's a grim survival tale of humans almost wiped out by an alien invasion some six months ago. The remnants we focus upon are roughly 300 men, women and children and most of them have no military experience.

There's an interesting opening in which the children explain an alien invasion of Earth through drawings to their teachers. Electricity and satellites are knocked out and something like over 90% of humanity is gone. About the only reason the humans are able to even mildly resist is simply that the alien force has left the planet with garrisons but you don't know what's happening over the rest of the world which leads to some intriguing presumptions and rumors. Said garrisons have giant bots helping them and the sinister means to mind control the human children through "harnesses" (alien membranes that attack from the neck all the way down to your lower back). Even when the children are freed from the harnesses there are surprises like the aliens finding ways to control those children at opportune times.

Noah Wyle, a military professor turned sub commander, is the main character in this tale who tries to give hope to the survivors even though his wife is dead and his middle child has been taken and harnessed by the invaders. Wyle is good enough in his role but
acting is all over the board.

In case of alien invasion here are a few things you should not do:

1) accidentally knock tiles off a roof during a reconnaissance mission;
2) twitch, look around, gawk, gape, and make a host of extraneous, LOUD movements, in other words, do everything possible to get discovered, when the enemy is passing by where you are lurking in a ditch;
3) send a dog out for reconnaissance and then stand in the middle of the road calling after him when the enemy emerges to kill him;
4) trust a guy like Pope on a mission to pick up motorcycles,
5) and THEN turn your back on him while you are fiddling with key chains that your girlfriend might like;
6) trust a guy like Pope with bombs and RPG's;
7) run down the the middle of a street during a skirmish, screaming at the top of your lungs: "South Boston! South Boston!"
8) interrogate a prisoner with a gun in a language he probably can not understand, in a room alone, using flat 2 dimensional photographs of the earth, and sheet of a calculus homework in ENGLISH with Arabic numerals as visual aids. And then EXPECT a response that makes sense;
9) when the enemy does start to communicate, sever the connection immediately. (Okay so the "communication" was the guy's kid, still, probably better not to let the guy STOP the communication, why didn't anybody?);
10) stand in a doorway when brain-washed combatant human children approach with guns;
11) sit in a school bus playing chess during your watch shift until an alien arrives and shoots at you and then, shout at the top of my lungs "Parker! Parker!
