The big let down for me was that the queens motive was vengeance. I would have been much happier if they were just emotionless, evolved insects. It
doesn't make sense to me. They were destroying planets for a while before they came to earth. There was never any mention of emotional motive before,
why throw it in at the very end?
Very good point, the whole manifest destiny thing rubbed me the wrong way from the start of the queen's explanation. You'd think their motivations
would be a bit more nuanced. And the Earth being the only "habitable" world in the galaxy? That's just lazy writing/research.
We loved the first two seasons of Falling Skies, and then they started getting weird with the soap opera treatment on Tom and the Doc's little girl
growing up all of a sudden. It just sort of meandered away with the rag-tag freedom fighter vibe we'd fallen in love with.
I enjoyed the show from day one, even through the slow and overly dramatic bits. It was falling off in the end.
Pope and Weaver kept me in it. I relate to Pope on a few levels and Weaver is a man I'd really like to be like. I've always been a fan of American
History and originally I'm from MA, so the 2nd Mass was right up my alley.
Was Cochise the Volm friend or foe? I know he and his Volm army helped humans kill skeeters and Eshpheni but most scenes, he was always with the 'oh,
I did not mention this before but...' and then reveal info to either help or explain hinder! In the end, the entertainment value of the show became
quite risible just because of Cochise's input.
