Stephen Collins joins the cast of Falling Skies as President of the United States this week. However based on the ending of this episode, is he “one and done”. Also was this the last episode for General Bressler? Is Lt Fisher really a metaphor for The Fisher King? This was Moon Bloodgood’s final episode after she was ordered by her Doctor to no longer fly to Vancouver to film. Karen and Art have a frank discussion on the use of Lordes in one scene, and why was she there? What is up with those eyeglasses? Is Falling Skies becoming a post-apocalyptic version of “Mad Men” with the number of drinking scenes? Lordes really downed that glass of wine. Is she harboring a secret? What will be the over/under on the number of episode sponsored by Hershey’s ? Is Dr. Kadar really that smart that he can be any type of doctor that is needed for an episode? Karen reminisces about Jill Danko, played by Kate Jackson in the show The Rookies. Is Evil Hal really Evil Karen and if so ….ewwwwww.
Honor to the Soldier, and Sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor also to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field, and serves, as he best can, the same cause — honor to him, only less than to him, who braves, for the common good, the storms of heaven and the storms of battle.
–December 2, 1863 Abraham Lincoln letter to George Opdyke and others
In this episode Badlands, we have a long goodbye to Crazy Lee. Actress Luciana Carro departs, but she got a free trip to Disneyland for her efforts from the producers. Whetever you do at Disneyland, never, never punch out Goofy.
Dear TNT, please give up on the two hour premiers as it makes for a long recording day. Art and Karen take a 10 minute break before recording this episode. We say good-bye to one of the bezerkers. The actress playing Crazy Lee was really given a trip to Disneyland by the producers. We narrow down who the mole is. Matt becomes rebellious. Is Anne going crazy, or is her baby an alien? Robert Sean Leonard joins the cast playing a doctor more like House then Wilson.
Art and Karen return for season 3 of Falling Skies. Dr Anne has her baby. Tom is the President of Charleston. A new alien named after an Apache warrior. Pope being Pope, and Matt is growing up. In this episode, we have listener feedback from the United Kingdom, and links to additional information. We start the season with a mole in the group. We lose a character from last season. Are all of Evil Karen’s appearances filmed at once as she was also filming the cancelled Last Resort. The producers invested in the same technology that brought you the etrade baby. How much did Hershey’s pay to get product placement in this episode. We now have distinct names for the aliens. No graphic novel this year, as the producers have invested in posters and mock propaganda videos.
Well… we have reached the end of the season, and Randall really went out with a bang! Did the season ending cliffhangers work for you? Will the solution the the ICBM’s be to reactivate the nanites. As Karen predicted, Nora bit the dust in this episode. Art already knew she had the lead in a new series named S.I.L.A slated for 2014. Who will play the President of the United States in season 2? Is there still a possibility of a Monroe/Miles reconciliation? Did anyone notice the small child with Prescilla? Yea, we met Leo Laporte today at his studios in Peteluma, CA.
