Falling Skies Podcast S5E9 – Reunion

doriaInterview with Carl the Skitter (Now we know where the effects budget went)

Nazca Lines from Wikipedia (Will this be another plot device, or will we get a real answer?)

Two different reunions this week with different outcomes.  Is Pope really dead.  The odds are NO!!  Who dies in the next episode? Twitter has Tom getting it at the end. We discuss how this season has dragged on a bit too long, leaving us with a lot of story to resolve in 44 minutes.  What is the Doria prime motivation? Can the world be saved with a suppository? We learn that Marty really does have a purpose.


Falling Skies Podcast S5E8 – Stalag 14th Virginia

FallingSkiesAlien QueenTwo episode left, and we spend the last two on filler.  We did get music back on the podcast. Art calls it that Marshall was an alien. Noah Wyle direct this episode.  His first in a directors chair. Another new alien (see picture). Is this alien and the Rebecca alien the same? Cochise needs to stop holding out on the 2nd Mass. We discuss who will hookup with who.  We also discuss who dies.  POPE RETURNS!!!  Will episode nine be his last?



Falling Skies Podcast S5E7 – Everybody Has Their Reasons

beefaroniWhat?? No  mourning for the loss of Col. Weaver’s pony tail?? Just when you though you could march straight into Washington, an overlord throws a wrench in the works. Did Tom avoid a possession by swatting a bug from his neck in the first episode? It looks like we will not have a Hal/Maggie/Isabella triangle. Why has Weaver not pulled rank and taken over leadership at the base?  Tom should learn about his right to remain silent. At last… History lessons. Who will be the person that will be able to work the communicator? Our bet is Tom. Excellent listener feedback this week.  We discuss why it is possible that you could stay isolated from the war. The job of continuity director must be tough for scenes involving food.  Mmmmmmm…. Beefaroni.


Falling Skies Podcast S5E6 – Respite

halladiesmanTom gets a taste of paradise this week as he is taken in by a family who have managed to remain isolated from the war.  The practical side of prepping is shown as the family has ?  But at least they have found the enigma code. power, running water, food, and ICE!!   In five seasons of this show, has the second mass not learned to touch Esphini technology. Do we now have a Hal/Maggie/Isabella love triangle?  We discuss the case of the disappearing/reappearing cornbread.  Will the 2nd Mass win the war with a collection of classic cars?  Will How will Weaver handle the fawning by Marty.  We found an interesting article on Moviepilot.com titled “Seven things we will miss about Falling Skies”.  Four episodes left.


Centennial State Geocaching #56 – Mingo Happy 15th Birthday to Geocaching

The Podcast returns with a weekend trip to Mingo Kansas for a 15th anniversary celebration (GCQRXE) .  Art violated the number one rule of video recording, always have a fully charged camera. As a backup, we are linking to a YouTube presentation of the event.  In a big announcement at the end of May 2015, Geowoodstock was awarded to Denver.  The next episode will feature a video of the announcement.


Falling Skies Podcast S5E5 – Non-Essential Personnel

popefleshwoundPope gathers a few flesh wounds in this episode.  Once again, Art incorrectly calls the fate of Pope. Were we introduced to the end of the Ben/Hal/Maggie triangle? (We hope so!!!)  Is a muscle car a good tactical weapon? Will it be sacrificed for the greater good?  Is Tom going to be the Mason that dies at the end?  Will Cochise understand American slang before the series end? How is there still bottled water in this universe? Don’t dead bodies smell after a while and shouldn’t Weaver have noticed? The show has lost something not having a weekly history lesson or movie references. We have not talked about ratings, but the average audience is about one-fifth of the series premiere.
