WHY FALLING SKIES IS MUST SEE TV

ONLY 3 EPISODES IN AND FALING SKIES IS SHAPING UP TO BE MUST SEE TV. DEALING WITH THE AFTERMATH OF AN ALIEN INVASION BY A RACE CALLED SKITTERS, IT SEES NOAH WYLE AS A FATHER ALONG WITH A MASS OF SURVIVORS TRYING TO KEEP THE ALIENS AT BAY AND FIND A WAY TO SAVE THE CHILDREN FROM A DEVICE KNOWN AS THE HARNESS. WHEN THE ALIENS CAME THEY TOOK CHILDREN AND PLUGGED THEM INTO A MACHINE THAT LEFT THEM MINDLESS SLAVES OR SO WE THINK. THE PRODUCERS HAVE PROMISED NOTHING IS QUITE AS SIMPLE AS IT SEEMS AND THE ALIEN AGENDA WILL SURPRISE US.

HAVING READ AHEAD TO UPCOMING EPISODES THE TWO PART SANCTURY SEEMS LIKE A SERIES FINALE WITH A HUGE SHOCK ON THE WAY.

THE ALIENS ARE WELL DEVISED. EVERY CITY HAS A HUGE SHIP ANCHORED OVER IT WHILE THEY USE MECHANICAL BODIES TO PATROL THE STREETS AND GATHER MORE CHILDREN AS A WORK FORCE. THE HARNESS HAS SEEN KIDS TURN INTO MINDLESS SOLDIERS AND SCRAP GATHERERS AND THE ALIENS SEEM TO TREAT THE KIDS IN AN ALMOST PARENTAL STANCE. hOWEVER TO PROVE A POINT TO HAL THEY EXECUTED 5 KIDS AS THE RESISTANCE MANAGED TO RESCUE ONE.

THE STORY DEEPENED AS A WAY AHS BEEN FOUND TO REMOVE THE HARNESS, SOMETHING PREVIOUSLY IMPOSSIBLE AS EVERY CHILD DIED BUT THIS TIME, NOT ONLY HAS IT CURED ONE CHILD’S CYSTIC FIBROSIS BUT ALLOWS THE SKITTERS TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE HUMANS. WITH ONE SKITTER CAPTURED ALIVE AND ONE CORPSE IN THEIR POSSESSION THE RESISTANCE HAVE DISCOVERED THE SKITTERS EMIT RADIO WAVES AFFECTING MACHINERY AROUND THEM.

LOTS OF QUESTIONS HAVE BEEN RAISED, WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE HARNESS, WHY DO THE ALIENS PROTECT THE CHILDREN ON ONE HAND AND KILL THEM ON THE OTHER AS A SHOW OF POWER? WHAT ARE THE SHIPS OVER HE CITY? WHY DO THEY USE TWO LEGGED MECHANOID MACHINES IF THEY HAVE SIX LEGS? WHY CAN’T THEY SEE CROWDS OF HUMANS YET LAY TRAPS TO LURE THEM OUT? AND AFTER THE TWO PARTER THE STAKES WILL BE RAISED. IN JUST A FEW EPISODES THE SHOW HAS ALREADY CREATED ITS OWN MYTHOLOGY MIXED WITH REAL HUMAN EMOTIONS. PROTECTING OUR CHILDREN IS FIRST INSTINCT FOR EVERY PARENT SO IT TOUCHES OUR MOST PRIMAL FEELINGS, IMMEDIATELY MAKING US HATE THE ALIENS FOR ZOMBIFYING OUR CHILDREN. ALREADY COMMISSIONED FOR A SECOND SERIES THIS COULD WELL STAND UP THERE WITH WALKING DEAD AS COMPULSIVE TLEVISION.
