Two Seasons, Twenty episodes down and the show is still mostly a mystery. With The Walking Dead keeping the Fall T.V. series interesting and action packed, Falling Skies is making summer television worth watching.
Some may compare the two shows to a disappointing second season with minimal action until the finale. But in fact the show used the first season to build the action and suspense and used most of the second season for character development and answer some much-needed questions.
Producers got away from the high-production action series after the 80’s run of shows like A-Team, Knight Rider, Air Wolf and the Fall Guy and instead brought rise to the high-salaried comedy sitcoms with the success of Cosby, Cheers then eventually Seinfeld and Friends. Hopefully the success of these shows will bring rise to a second coming of action drama success.

Thank you DVR.
Why am I wasting so much time writing about a t.v. show when this review is clearly a comic? Because if you do not watch the show this comic is of little interest to you. In fact, it would be down right confusing with all the history and backstory in season one of the series to even understand this as a stand-alone tale. So if you have not yet seen Falling Skies, stop right here, go buy or stream the first season of episodes and then resume from this point forward.
The Battle of Fitchburg is the period of time from where season one leaves off with Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) going with the newly introduced “Overlord alien” Continue reading
