I've heard rumors that falling skies is gonna be cancelled and it somehow involves Steven Spielberg. That better not be true! I love falling skies.

I agree with Professor Williams. We watch shows because we care what happens to the characters. I love overlords and skitters but they are not what kept me watching for two seasons. It was what is going to happen to the Masons? Is Ben going to be all right? Will Maggie be all right and will she and Hal finally get together? Is Pope as bad as he seems or does he had a good side (we've seen a few hints)? Will we see more of the backstory on these characters? So, keep some of the flash, i.e. aliens. It's great. But, please put the emphasis on the characters. They are the ones we really care so much about. And, it should go without saying that I have already marked June 9 on my calendar! Can't wait for Season 3.

Reality shows cost pennies to produce, sci fi shows cost millons per epsoide. Its no wonder reality shows dominate tv.

I think 10 is good, this show is like a game of chess. You must wait for the next move. Now day's we want every thing now, I don't need to sit every nite, in front of the TV watching the same show. I feel when I do that the story line gets Old, I have other things to do. If to many shows are written to soon the writers, don't have enough time to come up with great story lines!.
PS. Please keep this show fresh.

Well TNT does it again! They find a fantastic show that develops a fantastic following because of the story line and actor/actress's playing the characters, then totally screws it up by putting too much money into visual flash and then forgets all about the story line! Which in short KILLS every show they find with great stories. They just cannot seem to get the idea that a strong following in any TV show, Movie, or animation, comes totally from the story line, NOT THE VISUAL EFFECTS! Some examples of this is Star Wars, Doctor Who, and Star Trek, all originally had great story lines, great actors and actress's, but only had enough flash to fit the need for the visual references, in these examples the visuals were pretty lame but adequate, however the following for all of them was totally based on the story and actors/actresses and not on the visual flash.
TNT is placing way too much into the flash and the show is going to fail simply because it cannot fill the fans need for the story. Frankly ten shows with this particular is not even an appetizer, really think about it, the show is in a setting that can be very cheaply created, old buildings, dirty streets, garbage all over, open rural settings, dam I could shoot a hundred shows just a few blocks from my home, throw in an alien from time to time, and put a lot into the story, the cheapest part of the production for what they are paying to make aliens the primary characters when it really is more the life struggle of the human characters that we are most attracted to and how they deal with life in this situation. Frankly they would not have to have the aliens make appearances in each and every show and still have a fantastic series.
How long did M*A*S*H last? Was it a lot of flash or was it the story that kept it alive? Just stop a moment and think of all the very long lasting shows, all of them were based on their story alone not their flash. A good example of how flash kills a great show is Stargate SG1, at first it was a great story and low on flash, but in the final seasons they switched to a lot more flash and less and less story and the show cam to an end. Frankly some of the best SG1 shows, were totally story and little to no flash at all.
If everyone would simply recognize that they want the story over hundreds of special effects and aliens and they voice their opinions to TNT, maybe we can save this great story by letting TNT know they can spend less on flash and place more on the story so they can deliver 20 shows a season.
I really hate to say this one but even soap operas last for many shows a season simply based on their story not any flash at all, well maybe a cat fight now and then and maybe a shooting or something similar but they exist totally on their story so they can produce more shows because the money is not needed for all the flash.
So here is it TNT..... cut the flash way back and focus on the story and deliver more shows, I feel your need to spend so much on flash is a totally wrong and a waste of money when you have such a great story line. Please give us more story and more shows with less flash, and you will find you have a longer running better audience format than wasting so much on flash that is so unnecessary with great story lines. Take your cue from the long playing shows, you won't see flash, just good stories and good actors/actresses such as Noah Wyle, we all know the characters but no one knows who the aliens are and frankly we don't care so why are you spending so much on the things we don't even care about? Final example, in the long running Lost in Space, everyone loved the Robinsons and knew who they were, but even that the robot also had a big part, very very few people ever knew who played the robot! Are you ever going to get the picture?

This is a very good show, and one that I have enjoyed watching. But The show Is not worth waiting one year before the next season. It appears the networks are much more interested in reality shows and filming the day to day actions of "Stars" And people who have much more money than the average population.
Do viewers really care that much about living vicariously through television shows about wealthy people?

I'm not sure but I think the problem is that all these shows are based on novels and they are doing a book a season......
