    As charming as the show has been, season three just falls way short of expectations. It felt like it had a new set of writers that wasn't quite sure how the Falling Skies formula works. The setup to Season 4 is interesting, the show felt like it became a caricature of itself in S3.

    When Falling Skies is clicking, it remains a very entertaining show that fills a niche.

    It's hard enough keeping track of the aliens in Falling Skies, but the first few episodes introduce so many new challenges and mysteries it makes my head hurt thinking about them.

    The humans are still mostly good guys. Their dilemmas and antics--including blowing up a nuclear plant and giving birth to an infant who can stand up in her crib a few hours later--remain fun to watch.
