A science fiction drama focused on the aftermath of an alien invasion and the resistance movement by the survivors.
Most of the earth has been left unrecognizable and totally incapacitated after an alien invasion. Six months after the attack, groups of survivors have banded together on the outskirts of major cities in an attempt to fight back.
Citizen soldiers are faced with the task of protecting the people while also working as part of a campaign against the occupying aliens, who are highly intelligent and employ military-like tactics. Survivors have categorized these aliens into two types: Skitters and Mechs. Skitters are spider-like and have supreme strength and agility, while Mechs stand upright and shoot bullets from their arms.
Will the surviving humans be able to maintain their humanity in these trying times? They may be outnumbered, but still have their spirit, commitment, and endurance to fight back with.

To Chris: I like the show and will watch next season, but dude you need to get your networks straight. This is a TNT series, not AMC. AMC shows are edgier, more creative and faster-paced.

I've given up on this series.. Last season was it for me! No great reveal yet! After two years, we still don't know, who the aliens are? Why did they attack? When did they attack? How long ago was it? What do they want? A sci-fi show that's character driven- I do get that! But this pony has been riden way too long! What started out with great promise, has now turned into a waste of time!

I love Falling Skies. There are very few of this type show left. All my favorites have been canceled. SyFy channel is no longer science fiction based. How Warehouse 13 survives is beyond me. Loved all Battlestar Galactica & Stargate spinoffs. Hate reality shows except maybe Kitchen Nightmares.

Whoever said this show stinks is from a (generation) of people who crave instant gratification,rather than enjoying exploration. I've noticed that many shows don't survive because people want the plot revealed NOW. I believe they are the same people who do not read novels. They are so used to NOW, NOW, NOW, that they don't have time to enjoy the DEVELOPMENT of a story. Falling Skies is freakin' awesome. To actually discover that the aliens are more than likely ****** was a welcomed surprise to me! I'm glad I'm still watching it; now I love it even more!
