Give me a break...1 star
After seeing a number of positive reviews, especially by women, I just had to say "give me a break." I thought the introduction to Falling Skies was very clever and the production values looked good, so I was psyched to watch. I even called my husband in. We lasted about 40 minutes and couldn't stand it any more. Sappy, corny and derivative (did I say sappy?) beyond belief. What irks me the most is that they expect you to identify with the characters within the first 10 minutes without even getting to know them. Just because they play sweet music every time certain characters come on screen, we're supposed to wilt.
I'm not going to waste more time on it, but I just had to try and balance the reviews so others wouldn't waste their time.
