Could do better,
This review is from: Falling Skies - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
After an alien invasion, the surviving humans seem to be fighting a losing battle. There are pockets of resistance across the country, where hastily formed armies are rapidly losing ground against their enemies superior weaponry and technology. With the aliens taking over the bodies of children to do their mysterious work, there's everything at stake. The series principally follows one family - intrinsically involved in the already missing one son to the invaders.
There are too many cliches in this series to count. It's all very over the top. Some programmes and films manage to create an entire world that is completely convincing. I didn't feel that this one quite managed that. It was quite watchable, and some of the various plot lines do gradually get explained throughout the series, but the stories just got more outlandish and over the top as time went on.
