My only problem with these sci fi shows is they start off good then they start getting weird in a couple episodes n then weirder n weirder to the point where you just stop watching or lose interest.
Bleh I've only seen a few episodes of Falling Skies and I cant even bring myself to go back n try watching it again. So far the only thing thats kept my attention for this long is Warehouse 13.
Like for example if you dont know Warehouse 13 is about two down to earth secret service agents, the hottie is book smart, the guy typical corn fed guy, both lovable. Their job is to hunt down special objects that have been imbued with powers usually from historical figures, in some way shape or form these objects have some effect based on the historcal person the object is from.
Soooooo, with that in mind thats a great premise for the show, and it could probably go on indefinitely, however they're starting to shy away from those neat little havoc causing artifacts bit by bit and get down to more personal matters involving the characters. Stretched out episodes continuing into another episode etc etc.
Like Stargate Sg1 kind of did that, but what made them so fantastic is that every episode was an unknown adventure involving aliens and another planet which is why Sg1 lasted for sooo long.
Falling Skies annoyed the bahjeebus out of me right from the beginning with one or both of those two kids that were recovered n you just knew one of them wasnt right in the head, and no one realized it but the audience. I dunno I think I'd rather see that guy go back n do a few more movies for the Librarian.
