On the whole was disappointing, but the finale, "Brazil," may have been the biggest letdown.
All in all, a welcome return to the world of Falling Skies with plenty to chew on, but not quite up to the quality the series has shown before.
Much of Falling Skies season 3 felt as though it overlooked (or undercooked) the journey.
Alien clichés, done badly. Characters with no purpose. And most of all, a story that seemed to be going nowhere.
Audience Reviews for Falling Skies: Season 3
Pointless and cliched, Falling Skies falls flat in its third season. While the action is well-done and the plot is fairly interesting, the storytelling is especially poor; which really shows through in a 10 episode season. Newly elected President of the New United States Tom Mason forges an alliance with the Volm, who've been fighting for generations against the alien race that has taken over Earth; meanwhile Pope stirs up discontent within the civilian population and a mole carries out covert strikes against the human resistance. In the past the writing has been rather creative, but this season they pull out every sci-fi trope in the book; body possession, undercover moles, implanted dreams, and the Star Child. The Star Child plot (creating an alien/human hybrid with super powers) is just the worst, and is unbearable to watch. An uneven season with a lot of false starts, Season 3 of Falling Skies fails to deliver on its potential; but it's still entertaining and is full of action.
