This is a short post, but I wanted to note this. I’ve been digging through the online archives of posts about Falling Skies, and the story surrounding it. What has surprised me is how much TV critics are noticing the philosophical themes.
Here is the Christian Science Monitor’s pre-premiere commentary, which compares the show to AMC’s The Walking Dead. http://www.csmonitor.com/The-Culture/Culture-Cafe/2011/0621/TNT-s-Falling-Skies-stomps-on-The-Walking-Dead
The Television website Seriable has been investing a lot of time into this show as well, their material has brought a deeper look to the show for me. http://seriable.com/tag/falling-skies-2/
Even this interview with Tom Mason’s actor Noah Wile confirms this unique, theme-based nature. http://www.tvline.com/2011/06/noah-wyle-falling-skies-preview/
anyway, I hope you enjoy the new links. I’m still attempting to catch up on the show, but I’m enjoying every moment.
