Falling Skies (S4E08) - "A Thing With Feathers" - 8/10/14



"A Thing With Feathers" - Sunday, Aug. 10, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)

The 2nd Mass picks up the pieces after a devastating alien attack leaves Maggie fighting for her life...and Hal fighting for Maggie. Meanwhile, Tom and Dingaan (guest star Treva Etienne) are cut off from the rest of the group, buried under tons of rubble, where they must rely on an Enemy Ship to rescue them. Mira Sorvino guest-stars.

Directed by David Solomon

So how long will it be before Ben and Maggie are hooking up, since they share a set of spikes?

Maybe I missed it, but what does the title of the episode reference?

It's pretty self-explanatory ... it references a thing with feathers. Could be a pillow, could be a duck ...

Good thing the end is in sight for this year and this show. It is like they have run out of ideas.

"This is the only way"

Another good way for peace is to NOT enslave the indigenous population and give the hell off our planet. Brain warped!

It could run into the same issue Walking Dead would at some point. Keep cycling though the same set of issues if it goes on too long.

This show has become a death march. Please tell me that this is the last season and everyone is killed in the series finale.

Next season will be its last season. TNT doesn't have the highest standards, I suspect its continued renewal is some kind of favor to the producers or they've worked out a lucrative streaming deal with the studio.

I binge-watched the first three seasons on Amazon and really enjoyed them. However this season just has not grabbed my attention at all. The only plot line that showed any promise was the Hitler-youth arc, and we've blown past it in favor of a hippie commune and a rehashing of the worst season of Battlestar Galactica (the prison camp season).

I've started to watch this episode a few times and I just cannot get through it; either I start doing something else or I fall asleep. I'm debating just skipping to the next episode in hopes it picks up. Or just skipping out. Hell, I am enjoying Under the Dome more than this.

The old adage states that a show jumps the shark whenever THE baby is born on the show. Lexi and the ripping off of "V" did it here.
