Critic Reviews for Falling Skies Season 2

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (7)

Mercifully free of inspiring speeches, self-righteous prayer, and extended rumination on the Meaning of It All.

Boldly delivers on the promise by TNT producers to rev up both the pace and the firepower.

Its new slogan is "The Battle Is Just Getting Started." Unfortunately, so are the cliches and predictability.

"Skies" has made the bad guys intriguing, and now if it can only get serious about character development with the good ones -- humans -- then the second season will be a big improvement.

The good - Noah Wyle's performance, strong effects and action, unexpected alliances and pivots - far outweighs the bad.

If there's anything that Falling Skies knows how to do, it's ending a season with a sledgehammer of a cliffhanger.

May 22, 2018 | Full Review…

All in all, Falling Skies season 2 felt like a much more organized, concise effort, even if there were less out and out battles.

May 22, 2018 | Full Review…

The stakes for season 2 were appropriately raised. However, maintaining that element of drama has not been the show's strong suit.

May 22, 2018 | Full Review…

The stakes start to feel unreal. The characters start to feel like they're performing against a cardboard backdrop, and we don't care about the things they care about. The drama is half-cooked.

Good stuff, Falling Skies. Keep it up.
