|See, that's cool sci-fi tech.|
Yes, I've only seen seasons 1 & 2. I started them after season 3 was already underway. So my review is only going to cover what I've seen, obviously.
|3.5 out of 5 stars|
|Yea! Mecha! I'm happy now.|
|For my enjoyment, more mecha.|
|He hides worse than Hobbits.|
|The aliens (Skitter show here) are quite imaginative.|
The aliens, now those are really cool. The skitters are six-legged low slung beasties. They do a bloody good job with their facial expressions too. I watched the extra's and they did a lot of work on those buggers, everything from the facial movements to the motion of the six legs, some very impressive puppetry. The mecha are fun, and as time goes on we discover new aliens. I'm not going to go into detail about them, spoilers and all. And of course there are humans as bad guys too... what science fiction is there that does not (accurately) portray humans as some of the worst most vile monsters.
I will continue to watch Falling Skies, I like it. But it has an added bonus. It is one of a few real hard sci-fi shows on now. Defiance is off until SyFy brings it back (I feel icky typing 'SyFy'). Revolution is less science fiction than it is stupid people doing stupid things, though I do need to catch up on that show. Gotta see who is going to engage in the next face-palm worthy act. It is like a train wreck, you know you shouldn't stare, but you just can't look away.
And I promise to someday get back to watching Caprica so I can review it.
|Those skitters can really skedaddle.|
