Falling skies

Hi

Today i Want to write about a fairly new TV searies "Falling skies", produced by Steven Spielberg. Action of this sci-fi drama takes place in present times, six months after first alien atack. People are trying to survive in post apocaliptic world with no electronic devices and mad indywiduals who would kill them just to have their shoes.

Main character Tom Mason, played by Noah Wyle, is a former history professor who becomes second in command of of 2nd Massachusetts, he has three sons, that are also included in series.

Main female character is Moon Bloodgood played by Anne Glass, she was a  pediatrition but due circumstances she become second Massachusetts main doctor. There is alot more to write, but i don't want to spoil it for you.

Overall I liked it very much, but you have to remember, that i am a huge sci-fi fan (books, movies, series, anything). In my opinion show is quite realistic, i like how characters have to scavenge everything, food gas, weapons, vehicles, medicine, etc. it kinda feels like Mad Max with aliens :)  Effects are decent and plot gets really interesting. Only thing that i didn't like was acting, but who cares about acting in sci-fi :)
Almost forgot, i love how in opening child voice describes the invasion, it is kind of scary. 
Only 6 episodes came out so far so i recommend this series to everyone who has few free hours and like aliens.

Definitely will be watching it

  8. It's sad to see that Steven Spielberg does primarily producing work now. I'd love to see some more directing from him.
