Tread Perilously — Falling Skies: Reborn

tp1400-1Tread Perilously closes out Sci-fi month with a look at the final episode of Falling Skies, “Reborn.”

As the 2nd Mass marches toward the Lincoln Memorial, fates are decided, aliens are killed, and Tom Mason makes an important choice. What, you were expecting more of a plot synopsis? This is Falling Skies.

Erik immediately declares his antipathy for Falling Skies. Justin notes the episode is the lowest rated on IMDB — meaning the series’ fans hate it. Another discussion about Moonraker breaks out. The conversation leads to authors like Harry Turtledove, Larry Niven, and Isaac Asimov. The pair also doubt executive producer Steven Spielberg’s active involvement in the program. Erik introduces the TechnoKraken. Justin breaks down why the premise works, even if the execution consistently fails. Erik defends Noah Wyle as the star. He also pitches him as a Wally West for the 1990s. A different reading of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining emerges. Will Patton gets praised even if he’s given little to do. The pair discover the soul of TNT and try to figure out what Jeff Fahey is doing here.
