I know a lot of people didn't care for the show but I was watching it and yes it could have used some help but maybe this is the help it needs. I didn't like the way it ended in the second season. They killed one of the main characters off and that was one I enjoyed watching.

Maybe this will help the show, maybe not...I'm going to give it another chance.

Yeah i didnt like how they killed that person at the end. This show will probably end up being a tragedy. I bet he die in the series finale. In some ways he reminds me John from Red Dead Redemption.

"wrapping up his services on TNT’s Falling Skies " ok now im considering the happy news ,falling skies is an ok show at most , i just watch it out of boredom , anyways the most important part is we got a season 3

Yes, I'm glad we got that season 3 to at least give us more of what happens to everyone. They at least need to finish up some story lines.
